Wisdom Tooth Extraction

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last row of molars in the mouth. They usually appear in post-adolescence or early adulthood, between the ages of about 17 and 25. However, some people may not develop any wisdom teeth or may develop only one or a few of these teeth.

Why Should Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?

Wisdom teeth may need to be removed because they often do not have enough space in the mouth and can cause malpositioning or jamming problems. These conditions can lead to pain, inflammation, tooth decay, and jaw damage. Additionally, stuck wisdom teeth can displace other teeth and create gaps between teeth.

How is Wisdom Teeth Extraction Done?

Wisdom tooth extraction is usually performed by a dentist or oral surgeon. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and the tooth root is removed. In some cases, tooth removal may be more complex and surgical techniques may be required.

Healing Process After Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The healing process after wisdom tooth extraction can usually take a few days to a few weeks. Pain, swelling and bleeding after the procedure are normal. Your dentist or oral surgeon will provide appropriate care instructions to speed up and relieve the healing process.

Complications and Risks of Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom tooth extraction is generally safe, but some complications may occur. These can include infection, gum damage, jaw fracture, and nerve damage. Therefore, it is important to follow your dentist's instructions carefully.
