What is wisdom teeth removal?
Wisdom teeth are the last two teeth in the back of your mouth. These teeth generally appear in your late teen years and are often called third molars. These teeth usually do not have enough room to erupt from your mouth, and they can be very difficult to keep clean. Due to this, many times wisdom teeth removal is necessary to keep the health of your mouth intact. This may be used to treat impacted wisdom teeth or teeth that are problematic to the overall health of your teeth and mouth.
What should I know about wisdom teeth removal?
Having wisdom teeth removed is often called having them pulled. Wisdom teeth can be pulled at any point after they have started erupting, but it is often beneficial to remove them before they have fully grown in. Wisdom teeth that are still growing in cannot cause as many problems as wisdom teeth that have fully grown in. Once fully erupted, wisdom teeth can start to shift your teeth and cause many other issues. Pulling your teeth before this happens can help to reduce future issues. Wisdom teeth removal is typically best for teens in high school or college who are experiencing issues, such as:
If you are experiencing these symptoms, it may be a good idea to see a dentist about your wisdom teeth and how they could be affecting your oral and dental health.
What happens after wisdom teeth removal?
There will be a period of recovery after your wisdom teeth removal, but most people are able to return to their normal daily activities the day after their procedure. There will be many diet restrictions over the following weeks. However, Dr. Grewal will give you thorough aftercare instructions to follow. You should avoid smoking and using e-cigarettes for multiple days after your surgery, as these can negatively impact your healing process. You may notice swelling, pain, and other side effects after your procedure. Pain medications and cold packs can be used to help reduce the discomfort you may experience after wisdom teeth removal.
