When To Remove Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth are the last molars to come in and usually start coming in around age 17-25. They’re more prone to cavities and tooth decay because of the bacteria that naturally build upon them (especially if they don’t brush and floss). If wisdom teeth need to be removed, it’s best done before any problems arise. Wisdom teeth can also cause issues with how your jaw functions which are why we recommend getting them out early!

 

What Are Wisdom Teeth And What Do They Do

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars or late-erupting molars. They typically emerge between the ages of 16 and 25 years old. If they become impacted, this means that a wisdom tooth has not come in properly and remains trapped beneath gums and other tissues within your mouth. This can cause pain, infection, damage to nearby structures such as nerves or blood vessels which may lead to needing them removed! 

Wisdom teeth are important for chewing food but their impact is going down making less space available for emerging teeth forcing it inward towards the present permanent front incisors over time potentially causing these remaining ones to rotate into an improper position impacting against one another ruining proper function altogether!

 

When Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed

Wisdom teeth removal is recommended when there’s a risk of infection, damage to other teeth or jaw problems. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) recommends that you have your wisdom teeth removed if they’re:

 

  • Impacted – meaning they don’t come in completely and are either partially or fully covered by bone 
  • Crowding the rest of the mouth causes difficulty pronouncing certain letters such as s, z, f, etc. 
  • Growing sideways instead of straight up makes them more difficult to clean and increases the likelihood for decay between your upper molars resulting in tooth pain due to inflammation around those impacted areas. There may also be associated swelling and even elevated

 

How To Prepare For The Wisdom Teeth Removal 

You might be surprised to find that wisdom tooth removal is one of the most common surgical procedures. It’s not uncommon to have these teeth removed if they are causing problems with your oral health, but it will depend on how much you value having this procedure done for yourself. When thinking about whether or not you need to remove your wisdom teeth, there are a few things that should definitely come into play before making any hasty decisions about this surgery.

Here are some important factors below:

  • No eating or drinking after surgery.
  • Be honest about the prescribed medications that you take.
  • Do not consume alcohol after some time of surgery.
  • Do not smoke for 12 hours prior to surgery.
  • Get your room at home ready for your recovery.

 

What Can Happen After Having Your Wisdom Teeth Removed 

You may experience: swelling and bruising, pain, or ache near the surgical site. You will be provided with a post-operative care plan upon leaving the practice. It is important to follow your health care provider’s instructions after having any type of surgery done on your mouth region. This not only includes caring for your teeth but also taking it easy (no strenuous activities such as sports). 

In order to avoid complications like dry sockets, you should prevent smoking and spit out blood clots that form around healing tissue in place of food particles which can lead to this condition developing. If left untreated it could result in severe infections; during recovery from wisdom tooth extraction there are ways to reduce risk of infection including proper hygiene practices and good oral health habits

 

How To Take Care Of Your Mouth Post-Surgery 

It is important to take care of your mouth after wisdom teeth removal. One should avoid eating hard foods and crunchy food as they may push the blood clot out until it heals and also chew on things like ice, popcorn kernels or gum that can damage the wound site. 

After surgery, one must stay hydrated by drinking lots of water every day for at least a week or two weeks depending upon how fast you heal. It is good to eat soft moist foods instead such as smoothies, mashed potatoes etc but do not overdo this either because too much fluid in your body will increase swelling, so balance between both diets is needed. Cleaning your teeth twice daily using peroxide mixed with warm salt water stops infections from developing around the tooth.

 

Conclusion

Wisdom teeth, the third set of molars that come in between ages 17 and 25, can cause a lot of problems. The most common problem for wisdom tooth removal is crowding other teeth which cause pain to erupt when chewing or brushing your teeth because they are so close together. Crowded wisdom teeth also lead to gum disease because food gets stuck in there and allows bacteria to grow unchecked. If you have had an x-ray taken recently and it shows signs of overcrowding we recommend getting them removed before they become too painful to deal with!
