What are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth that are growing horizontally can affect adjacent teeth, the jawbone, and even the nerves. They can also trap food particles and cause decay. If they are entrapped in the soft tissue, they can allow bacteria to grow and cause infection. Such teeth are known as impacted teeth, and they may need to be extracted before they cause more problems.
The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process
When you come to see us showing symptoms of pain and discomfort due to your wisdom teeth, we will first take X-rays to understand the exact positioning of your wisdom teeth. We’ll then numb the area with a local anesthetic. If the wisdom teeth have fully erupted, they can be extracted like any other tooth. If they are embedded in the gums and jawbone, we will make a small incision in the jawbone to access the tooth.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction After Care
Bleeding may occur during the first 24-hours after the procedure. It can be controlled by softly biting on a moist gauze pad. Do not rinse your mouth and refrain from drinking with a straw for 24 hours. Stay away from hot and hard foods as well. Use an ice pack to reduce any pain and swelling. Painkillers will be prescribed to control pain.
