The wisdom tooth removal process in 2019

Feb 24, 2019

Wisdom teeth are extraneous molars that grow out of the place and do not provide any functional utility to the set of teeth you have for your mouth. Instead of any possible use, wisdom teeth can cause excessive problems by exerting pain and inducing an unnatural chewing rhythm.

If you plan to get your wisdom teeth removed in 2019, you should consider getting it done by a set of experts like the ones at Pinnacle Dental. Here is a comprehensive guide to help you navigate through the wisdom teeth removal process:

When You Might Need Surgery

Wisdom teeth in themselves can be a very painful experience for people. They cause you to change the rhythm of chewing and also cause irritation because of pain. Hence, you might need a surgery if the wisdom tooth has started causing excess pain.

If you have cavities to any other oral health problems, the wisdom teeth will only add to those issues. Hence it is recommended that you get the wisdom teeth removed as soon as you start facing these problems.

The Right Time for Wisdom Teeth Removal

People tend to grow their wisdom teeth somewhere between the ages of 17 and 24 years. So, if you sit between this age bracket, it is very likely that you have faced problems with wisdom teeth or are facing problems wisdom teeth.

The only critical thing to be remembered here is that the wisdom tooth extraction process should be halted or postponed unnecessarily. The more you wait to get the tooth removed, the added issues you will face because of the wisdom tooth.

What to Expect During Healing?

When you go for wisdom tooth extraction, you should expect:

  1. A thorough cleaning of your entire mouth to ensure there are no additional bacteria.
  2. Usage to local anaesthesia to ensure there is no added pain induced during the extraction process.
  3. A surgical process under which the extraneous tooth or teeth are removed.
  4. A small degree of residual pain or swelling in the gums or mouth, which will be gone after a specific period of time.
