Wisdom Teeth 101
Wisdom teeth, your third set of molars, erupt in the very back of your jaw on the upper and lower arch. Wisdom teeth usually come in sometime between the ages of 15 to 25. Some people have enough room for their wisdom teeth and don’t experience any problems. However, it’s not uncommon for them to cause some complications.
What can you eat after you remove your wisdom teeth?
After your wisdom teeth removal procedure is complete, we recommend sticking to soft foods for the week after your appointment. Avoid any tough meats and hard foods that could injure the healing area. When it comes to drinks, don’t use straws while your mouth is healing. Straws can cause dry socket which will slow down your recovery process and potentially lead to infection.
Can you be sedated during wisdom teeth surgery?
Yes, many patients get some form of sedation during their extractions. We also completely numb the area around the tooth. We do everything we can to ensure that you feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process.
When do you need wisdom teeth removal?
Every patient is different, so this answer will vary on a case-by-case basis. However, these are some of the most common issues with wisdom teeth that lead to the need for removal:
- Crowding Other Teeth
- Erupting at Angle
- Not Enough Room in Jaw
