What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are also known as third molars. They are often the last teeth to erupt from the gumline, and as such, the mouth usually does not have enough space for them to grow in properly. They were useful for our ancient ancestors and their rough diets, but thanks to advances in cooking methods (and a jaw that has gradually gotten smaller over time), they tend to just cause problems for most people.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed?

If the wisdom teeth cannot fit, they may come in at odd angles or become impacted, a condition where they are stuck in the gums and jawbone. This may lead to several harmful dental conditions, such as:

  • Teeth misalignment
  • Damaged jawbone
  • Infection
  • Tooth decay
  • Oral cysts
  • Persistent pain

To avoid these, our dentists may recommend having the wisdom teeth removed.

What to Expect from the Wisdom Teeth Procedure

Your mouth and bite will be carefully examined by our dentists to see if wisdom teeth removal is necessary for the health of your smile. If it is, we will consult with you so that you know what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.

If the teeth have mostly erupted, we can extract them like we would a regular tooth. However, impacted wisdom teeth require a more surgical approach, in which case we may refer you to a local specialist to ensure you receive the attention you need.

Recovering from Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Following a wisdom tooth extraction, a blood clot needs to form over the treatment area. To ensure this happens, a patient should avoid spitting, using a straw, smoking, or doing strenuous physical activity for at least the first 24 hours. The gauze should be changed every couple of hours for the first few days, and any pain medication needs to be taken as directed to keep the patient comfortable.

It’s also important that they follow a soft food diet and gradually introduce tougher items as their mouth heals over the course of a week. After that amount of time, a person should be able to resume their normal routine.
