The Wisdom Behind Wisdom Teeth Removal

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-patient

If you’re between the ages of 17 and 25, your dentist is likely to announce the arrival of your wisdom teeth. These third molars don’t make you any smarter, but they can cause a lot of trouble if you ignore them. Most people have four, but some have as many as nine wisdom teeth. Dental experts claim that approximately 90 percent of the population has impacted wisdom teeth that are hiding beneath the soft tissue and bone inside their jaw. These teeth can’t erupt normally because there isn’t enough space in the mouth. They may break through the gums partially or not at all. Impacted teeth lead to problems like fluid-filled cysts, tumors, tooth decay, and periodontitis. Wisdom tooth removal can prevent or correct these problems.

Why Wisdom Tooth Extraction is a Good IdeaHumans in prehistoric times needed their wisdom teeth for chewing raw meat and tough plants. They had bigger jaws and could accommodate a few extra teeth. Our modern jaw size, along with improved dental health, makes it less likely for our extra molars to serve as functional teeth. You may not know that you have wisdom teeth. Most people never have any signs or symptoms. When they do, they experience problems like pain, swelling, and changes in jaw mobility. Symptoms usually indicate that the teeth should be removed. Many experts recommend extraction before the age of 30 to avoid complications.

What to Expect with Wisdom Teeth RemovalYour dentist in Orlando may give you the choice between general or local anesthesia. If your surgery is complicated, or you don’t want to be awake, general anesthesia may be the best option. After the surgery, you may experience some pain, but your surgeon will provide pain medication. You’ll probably have some facial swelling and bruising for several days. Some bleeding is also normal. You can bite on a piece of gauze or a moist tea bag to help reduce it. Eat a soft or liquid diet while you recover, but don’t use a straw; this can disturb the newly formed blood clots. You can brush your teeth, but be very gentle.

Depending on your pain level and condition after your wisdom teeth removal, you can usually return to work or school within a few days. If you experience any unusual symptoms during recovery, contact your dentist or oral surgeon.
