What do you know about wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the late bloomers of our mouth also known as our last molars. They usually erupt between the age of 17 and 21 during the beginnings of our adulthood.
Wisdom teeth can be complicated teeth that can cause us pain and swelling. Part of the reason why this happens is, wisdom teeth usually don’t emerge properly or are impacted. What does that mean? It means it’s the root of your discomfort and pain.
When wisdom teeth start to erupt, they can come out improperly which can lead to many complications such as:
- allows food to become trapped causing cavity-causing bacteria to grow.
- make it difficult to floss between wisdom teeth and neighboring molars.
- allows bacteria to enter the gums for infection to occur.
- painful crowding and disease.
Impacted teeth can cause great discomfort and swelling in the gums and jaw. Having impacted teeth means
- there’s no room for them to come out causing them to crowd or damage other teeth.
- can form a cyst on or near the impacted tooth damaging the roots of teeth or destroy the bone supporting your teeth.
Removing your wisdom teeth is a short process but is usually a longer dental recovery.
If your wisdom teeth are showing signs of complications, removing them is the best solution to prevent further infection or dental treatment.
Before getting your wisdom teeth removed, you want to talk with your oral surgeon about the process, questions you might have about the surgery, and the type of anesthesia you’ll be getting. Knowing as much as you can about the procedure and what to expect can ease some of the anxiety you might be feeling.
During the surgery, you can expect it to be 45 minutes or less to remove your wisdom teeth. There are 3 types of anesthesia you can be given,
- Local anesthesia – the numbing of the gums and may even be given nitrous oxide to breathe to relax you or doze you off.
- I.V. sedation – numbs your mouth and might inject into your veins to make you drowsy.
- General anesthesia – you are put to sleep throughout the whole process by injecting you through the veins or breathing gas in through a mask.
Once you’ve been sedated, your wisdom teeth will be removed and stitched up in no time. The process of recovery can take 4 days up to a week but it is dependent on every person.
