Wisdom Teeth Removal Fundamentals

Wisdom Teeth

Typically arriving during the late teenage years or into the early twenties, the wisdom teeth are the final set of molars you will receive. Some lucky individuals develop wisdom teeth that are well aligned and present no issues whatsoever. But, most patients find that they have misaligned or impacted wisdom teeth that cause serious pain and really do require removal.

Impacted wisdom teeth, which are partially erupted, can have bacterial infection around the tooth that can cause serious pain, stiffness of the jaw, and swelling. Also, impacted wisdom teeth can be more vulnerable to tooth decay than other teeth, because they are hard to reach when you brush and floss.

To determine whether or not you need wisdom teeth removal, consult with your dentist. X-rays can be taken on a regular basis to check the positioning of these teeth and to help assess whether removal is required.

Your dentist may suggest you have wisdom teeth removed even before problems arise. This is done so that you do not develop wisdom teeth pain or so those teeth do not develop issues that would make removal more difficult and more painful. If you require wisdom teeth removal, the complexity of the procedure will depend on a number of factors.

Teeth that are completely erupted are easier to remove than impacted wisdom teeth. In the latter case, you will have to have an incision made in your gums, and any bone covering the teeth will need to be removed. The kind of anesthetic you will receive during your wisdom teeth removal will depend on the position and condition of your teeth, whether you have impacted wisdom teeth, along with your level of anxiety and pain tolerance.

Recovery experiences vary widely among patients as well, but may include bleeding and facial swelling. After your wisdom teeth removal, you will be able to take pain medication, as well as antibiotics to stave off infection. You should stick with a soft diet for the first few days and make sure to brush all teeth except those adjacent to the extraction area.

Possible complications from your wisdom teeth removal include dry socket, which requires specialized treatment from your dentist. Paresthesia is much less common, and is the result of damage to the nerves during the procedure. This is a numbness of your lip, tongue, or chin that may last for a short period of time, but sometimes is permanent.

If you feel you are not healing properly after your wisdom teeth removal or you experience unusual pain or discomfort, contact your dentist immediately.
