Wisdom Tooth Extractions

The last set of teeth to erupt in the mouth are commonly known as Wisdom teeth, which usually grow out around the age of 18. These final molars find it quite difficult to get a place in the mouth, as other teeth have already made a space for themselves. This can result in problems in the form of pain, feeling discomfort when eating, or infections.

The best way to know if your wisdom teeth need to be removed is to visit your dentist. When you visit All In One Dental, Your dentist will perform a proper evaluation by analyzing your dental history, taking x-rays, and checking the condition of the mouth for dental surgery.

Most Common Wisdom Teeth Removal Causes

There could many reasons why wisdom teeth should be extracted. Some of these reasons are:

Tooth Decay

The partially impacted wisdom tooth can become a food and bacteria trap, which may lead to tooth decay. If a wisdom tooth becomes decayed, it will need to be extracted.

Infected Gum

The partial eruption of a wisdom tooth, may cause a place for food and bacteria to reside beside the gum. This may cause pain or swelling and the person finds it very difficult to chew food on the affected area.

Pressure Pain

While the wisdom tooth grows and tries to make space, it creates a lot of pressure on the other teeth, resulting in the pressure pain and may even cause the erosion of other teeth.
braces (1)

Orthodontic Treatments

If you have received any orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth, wisdom tooth may cause shifting of the teeth by putting pressure on the area.


Taking Care of Yourself After Surgery

After getting your wisdom teeth pulled, you are likely to experience pain and swelling. There may be some bleeding. While your mouth heals, you have to be careful not to dislodge the blood clot or harm your healing gums. Try to avoid solid foods, alcohol, coffee, soda or hot beverages in the first few days following your procedure. You shouldn’t even brush your teeth for the first day of recovery.

According to most dental offices, typical wisdom teeth recovery time is three to four days, although it can be as long as one week. The length of recovery depends on how badly your wisdom teeth were impacted and how they were erupting
