Wisdom tooth removal becomes easy!

The wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last adult teeth to emerge. Wisdom teeth do not emerge until your late teens or early 20s, where the rest of your adult teeth do by the age of 13. If your wisdom teeth are causing you discomfort, it’s time to have them checked out. There are a few reasons why your wisdom teeth may be bothering you, and the majority of them signal that wisdom teeth removal is required. Growing pains, cavities, impacted teeth, cyst formation, and gum disease are some of the most common causes. The majority of patients have their wisdom teeth removed because they simply do not have enough room to grow in without getting impacted or moving adjacent teeth. Unless anything is amiss, wisdom teeth rarely cause discomfort for any reason.
Teeth are extracted using one of two methods: simple extraction or surgical extraction. In most cases, wisdom teeth that have become impacted are removed surgically. This technique is performed under local anesthetic. Small incisions in the gums are made to commence the surgery. These incisions allow the surgeon to reach the roots of your teeth as well as the surrounding jawbone. The teeth are then extracted. They may need to remove any bone that is obstructing the teeth in some circumstances. To be totally removed, the teeth may need to be sectioned or sliced into pieces. After that, the sockets are cleaned out and the incisions are sutured shut. Wisdom teeth do not need to be replaced because they play no major role in your mouth. The surgeons can assist to relieve your discomfort and maintain your oral health by removing your impacted wisdom teeth, considerably increasing your quality of life. After the surgery, you might feel a temporary pain, the following are some tips to help you heal faster after the wisdom tooth extraction:
1. Use an ice pack after the surgery.

2. Don’t dislodge the blood clots that form.

3. Avoid brushing the teeth next to the extraction site.

4. Avoid rinsing the mouth in the first 24 hours.

5. Avoid sucking on straws or smoking.

6. Ask your dentist for medication recommendations.

7. Avoid food that requires chewing or hot drinks.

8. Eat soft or liquid foods such as soup & jello.

9. Rinse the mouth with an antiseptic rinse after 24 hours.

10. Raise the head when sleeping.
