Wisdom Teeth Removal Tips

W

hen the dentist tells that wisdom teeth removal is needed, he or

she will refer the patient to a professional oral surgeon. The

surgeon will be the one to work and perform on the wisdom teeth

removal in his clinic. Usually, it takes only a few days for the patient to heal

and get back to normal completely.

The usual reasons for wisdom teeth removal

The wisdom teeth are the third set of molars located at the back of the

mouth. Usually, they come out ages 17 to 25, and they are seen and spotted

through x-rays. The usual reasons why wisdom teeth removal is required

are:

●The wisdom teeth are impacted – Since the teeth are located far back

of the mouth, they may not come out normally. The teeth can be

trapped either in the gums or jawbone, which can be extremely painful

●The teeth come in at an unusual or wrong angle – The wisdom teeth

may come in pressing against other teeth. Not only that it is painful,

but it can damage the other healthy teeth

●Mouth is not big enough – If the jaw has no available space or room

for another set of molars. If the mouth is not big enough to

accommodate another molar, there is no choice but to give it up

●The patient has gum disease or have existing cavities – if dental floss

or a toothbrush cannot reach the wisdom teeth

So, after wisdom teeth removal there are things needed to do and avoid to

fasten the healing process.

The Do’s After Wisdom Teeth Removal

changes

●Eating soft foods like rice, soup, or pasta is recommended

●Take lots of fluids

●Do not brush the teeth against any blood clots

●Start brushing teeth the second day after wisdom teeth removal

●Make sure to take all medications prescribed by the surgeon to avoid

swelling and ease the pain

●If the swelling or pain does not subside or improve, make sure to give

the doctor a call

The Don’ts After Wisdom Teeth Removal

●Do not drink using a straw. Sucking could loosen blood clots that are

responsible for faster healing process

●Do not rinse the mouth harshly. Doctor may advise using salt water for

flushing

●Do not eat crunchy, sticky or hard foods that could scratch the wounds
