All You Need To Know About Wisdom Tooth Removal

Posted last May 3, 2018, 11:40 am in Health report article

What Is A Wisdom Tooth?

By medical definition, wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on either side of the upper and lower jaws. They are the final teeth to erupt, usually appearing in the late teens or early twenties. They are also the most painful of all teeth eruptions.

How Is Wisdom Tooth Removed?

Best dentists in Pakistan will cause you the least discomfort while extracting your wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth that has fully erupted is rather easier to extract, just like any other tooth. However, a wisdom tooth that has only partially erupted and is still underneath the gums and/or is embedded in the jawbone, will require incision into the gums and the removal of the portion of the bone that lies over the tooth. More than often, the tooth is removed in small section rather than in one piece, so as to minimize the amount of bone removal.

When does it call for wisdom tooth extraction?

Dentists in Pakistan suggest that wisdom teeth that only emerge partially or come in crooked can be a major problem, calling for extraction. If not properly treated, they can lead to extremely painful crowding and disease. They might also be misaligned, or positioned horizontally, or angled towards or away from the second molars – in either case, removal is the ultimate solution. Dentists also suggest that wisdom teeth can be impacted, that is, they can only partially break through or erupt through the gum, allowing an attractive opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and hence cause infection. Such an infection can lead to serious pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness.

How Long Does It Take To Heal After Extraction?

The swelling, pain and discomfort that follows wisdom tooth extraction is apparently part of the normal healing process. There might be some bleeding as well. And recovery takes time, before you can go back to chewing carrots and apples. So you must take extra care of your teeth and gums during the healing process, to not to dislodge the blood clot or harm your healing gums. Avoid consuming solid foods, coffee, alcohol and sodas, and even hot beverages, at least during the first few days following surgery. Also, avoid brushing, spitting, flossing and rinsing for at least 24 hours after the extraction process. And only brush gently afterwards. Rinse your mouth with salt water much frequently to keep it clean and free from infections.
