What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are types of molars found in the very back of your mouth. These teeth usually appear in late teens or early twenties but may become impacted (fail to erupt) due to lack of room in the jaw or angle of entry. The most common type of impacted wisdom tooth is “mesial”, meaning that the tooth is angled forward toward the front of your mouth.

When should a wisdom tooth be removed?

When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it may need to be removed. If it is not removed, you may develop gum tenderness, swelling, or even severe pain. Impacted wisdom teeth that are partially or fully erupted tend to be quite difficult to clean and are susceptible to tooth decay, recurring infections, and even gum disease.

Each patient’s situation is unique. They will usually take a panoramic X-ray to determine whether your wisdom teeth will need to be removed. If your dentist recommends removal of your wisdom teeth, it is best to have them removed sooner rather than later.

The procedure

Wisdom teeth are typically removed in the late teens or early twenties because there is a greater chance that the teeth’s roots have not fully formed and the bone surrounding the teeth is less dense. These two factors can make extraction easier, as well as making the recovery time much shorter.

To remove a wisdom tooth, our doctors first needs to numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. He can use additional medication to safely sedate you during the extraction if you are feeling nervous about the procedure. Since the impacted tooth may still be under the gums and imbedded in your jaw bone, our doctors will need to remove a portion of the covering bone to extract the tooth. To minimize the amount of bone that is removed with the tooth, he will often “section” your wisdom tooth so that each piece can be removed through a small opening in the bone.

Once your wisdom teeth have been extracted, the healing process begins. Healing time varies depending on the degree of difficulty related to the extraction.

wisdom teeth removal FAQ

Wisdom teeth are the third molars, located at the back of your mouth. Most people develop four wisdom teeth in early adulthood.

Wisdom teeth often don’t have enough room in the mouth to fully emerge or grow properly aligned with other teeth, leading to a host of dental issues such as decay, gum infections and even shifting of otherwise well-aligned teeth.

No, not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. It’s recommended if X-rays show potential problems which could emerge from the development of these additional molars.

The procedure typically involves being given some form of local anesthesia or sedation so that you do not feel any pain during the surgery itself. During surgery it’s unusual for patients to feel anything more than pressure whilst their surgeon performs extractions on each individual tooth.

It depends on whether you are going under general anesthesia or conscious sedation for the surgery.At least 6 hours fasted intake is highly advised prior to operation for digestive reasons and avoidance of aspiration.

You will definitely feel some soreness and discomfort immediately following your extraction procedure.You may also experience swollen cheeks and mild bleeding but medications will help manage symptoms effectively

Typical recovery time could range from three days to one week after surgery.Best advise is bed rest (especially during first day) and frequent ice application against affected side expect a smooth healing process between 7-14 days post-operation.

You typically need to take it easy for at least 3 days following extraction so a resume of normal routine is expected by 5-7 days afterwards depending on follow up appointment information from your dental care professional

Potential risks after surgery might include an infection, dry socket(A painful condition that occurs when the blood clot that normally covers and protects where the wisdom tooth was starts to breakdown or dislodge),chipped teeth nerve damage etc It’s important you closely follow post-operation instructions given to you before leaving surgical ward.

Avoid drugs and substances linked with bleeding complications like antiplatelets, anticoagulants or alcoholic beverages. Stock up on soft food/soup, ICE chips/packs and pain relievers before getting your treatment done.Apply preemptive oral hygiene by brushing among other good habits but it is crucial avoid vigorous rinsing and spitting.
