Wisdom teeth, the molars that grow between the ages of 17 to 21 years, are called so as they signify you are becoming wiser. But there are various reasons which can lead to wisdom tooth extraction. Some symptoms of wisdom teeth are impacted teeth, tooth pain, jaw pain, swelling and redness in gums, occasional bleeding, and oral infections around the area of the wisdom tooth.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure
The removal of wisdom teeth is the most difficult dental procedure possible. This is because they do not develop normally. When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, it might shift its growth pattern and emerge at an unnatural angle. Due to the presence of several roots in some cases, wisdom teeth may develop independently or as a single unit. Wisdom teeth in the lower jaw can be trickier to remove because of their location so close to the nerve and their unusual shape.
Anaesthesia is used to numb the area around the wisdom teeth to be pulled. To help you feel at ease during your dental treatment, the experts at Vida Dental may recommend sedation. Although you may feel slight pressure or movement throughout the treatment, you will not be in any pain.
There may be swelling or discomfort once the operation is finished. After waiting an hour, you can apply a cold compress for 15 minutes. Never apply an ice pack straight to your skin; instead, cover it in a towel or cloth first. Dr Javier Cutino of Vida Dental may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen to alleviate discomfort and swelling. Seven to ten days is the average amount of time needed to heal after having a wisdom tooth extracted. Depending on the individual, this period of recovery may be shorter or longer.
Precautions after Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure
You should wait 24 hours before brushing or gargling again. Clear drinks such as water and juice should be consumed right away after having your wisdom teeth extracted.
