Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the four permanent adult teeth that appear at the top and bottom corners of the mouth. They erupt between the ages of 17-25. For others, wisdom teeth erupt normally like their other molars without any complications, while others develop impacted wisdom teeth. This normally occurs when the wisdom teeth have no sufficient room to erupt or grown normally.

  • No More Overcrowding
  • Better Oral Hygiene

If wisdom teeth are impacted leading to pain, infections or other dental problems, they are likely to be removed to avert further complications. However, it may be difficult to decide whether to have your wisdom teeth removed or not. Dentists or oral surgeons may still recommend extraction of wisdom teeth even if the impacted teeth are currently not causing any dental complications.

Why Wisdom Teeth May Be Extracted

Impacted wisdom teeth may be removed if they lead to the following complications:

  • Pain
  • Periodontal infections
  • Decaying of partially erupted wisdom teeth
  • Trapping of food behind the wisdom tooth
  • Development of cyst (fluid-filled sac) around the wisdom tooth
  • Damage to surrounding teeth or jawbone
  • Complications with orthodontic treatment procedures

Surgical Procedure

Prior to the procedure, the dentist may advise you not to drink or eat after midnight on the night before the surgery to reduce chances of aspiration. Before the extraction, the dentist administers local anaesthesia to numb the extraction area. A general anaesthesia may be administered where several or all wisdom teeth are to be removed at once. This will reduce pain and induce you to sleep during the procedure.

To remove the tooth, the dentist will open up the gum tissue and any bone covering the tooth. The connecting tissue (that connects the tooth to the bone) will be removed. Sometimes the tooth may be cut into smaller pieces to enable easy extraction. The dentist will clean any debris from the tooth or bone extraction area before stitching. Finally, cotton gauze will be placed over the wound to reduce bleeding and help in the blood clot.

Recovery after the Procedure

The recovery period may last only a few days. Painkillers may also be administered to relieve pain. The following tips will also aid in quick recovery:

  • Minimise physical activity after the surgery to prevent bleeding
  • Bite gently on the gauze and replace it as directed by the dentist
  • Holding a cold pack against the jaw and using over-the-counter pain relievers may help manage pain
  • Drink lots of water, but avoid carbonated, caffeinated, alcoholic, and hot beverages for the first 24 hours
  • Eat only soft foods for the first 24 hours. Avoid crunchy, hard, spicy, or hot foods
  • Never brush your teeth during the first 24 hours. Instead, rinse, spit, or use mouthwash
  • If you have stitches that need removal, schedule an appointment to have them removed
