Wisdom Tooth removal

Removing a wisdom tooth may seem scary or complicated, but the procedure is actually pain-free and performed with precision. As we age, our teeth can change, including the appearance of wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are your third molars that typically appear when you’re between 17 and 21 years old. These teeth can help you chew food better, but sometimes they cause unbearable pain, which is a sign that you should visit a dentist to remove impacted wisdom teeth.

Our specialist dentists and oral surgeons at Micris Dental Clinic are highly trained in performing surgical wisdom tooth extractions with precision and care, ensuring a safe and painless experience. We strive to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for our patients, prioritizing their well-being and satisfaction.

Step-by-Step Process of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Step 1: Planning

Your dentist will first evaluate your condition through an X-ray to determine the best approach for the extraction. They will also discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Step 2: Anaesthesia

To ensure that the procedure is pain-free and comfortable, your dentist will administer local anaesthesia to numb the affected area. This will help keep you relaxed throughout the process.

Step 3: Wisdom Tooth Removal

Your dentist or oral surgeon will make a small incision in the gum to access the wisdom tooth. In some cases, the tooth may need to be cut into smaller pieces for easier removal. Your dentist will then widen the tooth socket and remove the tooth. The length of the procedure varies depending on the complexity of the case and will be discussed with you beforehand.

Step 4: Closure

After the wisdom tooth has been removed, your dentist will close the gum using dissolvable stitches. The stitches will typically dissolve on their own within 7 to 10 days. To prevent wisdom tooth pain and any potential infections, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics or recommend pain relief medication. They will also provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing.

Why Should You Have Your Wisdom Tooth Removed?

If your wisdom teeth are not erupting normally, your dentist will examine them through X-ray. An abnormally growing wisdom tooth could lead to an infection called pericoronitis if not treated or extracted immediately. Here are the most common causes why wisdom tooth extraction is recommended:

Impacted teeth

When your teeth are stuck in your jawbone or gums, it can cause a lot of pain.

Wrong angle

Your teeth may become crowded if there is not enough space in your mouth. In such cases, your wisdom teeth may grow and press against your other teeth, causing discomfort and pain. This is a sign that your wisdom teeth need to be removed to prevent damage to your other teeth.

Small mouth

Your jaw may not have enough space to accommodate new teeth that need to come out.

Cavities/gum disease

Cavities or gum diseases may develop around your wisdom teeth due to difficulty in cleaning that area. Since it's located at the back of your mouth, it may be hard to reach with a toothbrush or floss, causing build-up of bacteria and food debris.

What Happens When A Wisdom Tooth is Not Removed?

Here are some other reasons why wisdom tooth extraction is necessary for certain cases, aside from alleviating the pain caused by impacted wisdom teeth:

Can cause damage to other teeth

When your extra set of molars, also known as wisdom teeth, grow and press against your other teeth, it can cause damage or problems with your bite. In such cases, wisdom tooth extraction is necessary to prevent further damage and alleviate the discomfort.

Jaw damage

If you don't have your wisdom tooth removed, it can lead to cyst formation around the new teeth which may damage your nerves and hollow out your jawbone.

Swollen gums

Inflamed gums may lead to the formation of pockets between teeth, which can become a breeding ground for bacteria. This bacterial growth can cause cavities, swelling, and stiffness in your jaw.

Alignment issues

If your wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning they don't have enough room to grow normally, it can cause your other teeth to become crowded. In some cases, removing the wisdom teeth is necessary to alleviate this problem and make room for orthodontic treatments.

Sinus Problems

Wisdom teeth problems can be associated with sinus pain and congestion.

Most frequent questions and answers

People who have healthy wisdom teeth may still choose to have them removed as a preventive measure against potential risks. Wisdom teeth growth can pose a risk to adjacent teeth, even without any pain or discomfort.

Another reason to remove wisdom teeth at a younger age is that the bones in your mouth get harder over time, making teeth removal more difficult in the future. Removal of wisdom teeth at a younger age can lead to faster healing.

If you notice your wisdom teeth erupting, it is best to consult with a specialist dentist as soon as possible. This allows for prompt dental recommendations and addressing any issues early on.

Whether you want to have all your teeth extracted in one appointment is your personal choice. Many patients prefer to extract all their wisdom teeth at once to avoid multiple anesthetic administrations. However, extracting multiple teeth takes longer to recover than a single-tooth extraction.

Preparing for your wisdom teeth procedure is an important step in ensuring a successful and comfortable experience. Here are some things you can do to prepare:

Firstly, plan your schedule ahead of time. Make sure you have enough rest and avoid any kind of stress before the procedure.

Secondly, before the actual wisdom teeth removal, your oral surgeon will speak with you about the procedure and ask about the condition of your tooth/teeth, your health history, existing medications or food supplements, the type of anesthesia that will be applied, and your personal feeling about the procedure. Be sure to discuss any concerns or questions you may have with your dentist during this time.

Lastly, make sure to follow any pre-operative instructions given to you by your dentist. These may include fasting for a certain period of time before the procedure, avoiding smoking, or refraining from certain medications.

By following these steps, you can help ensure that you are well-prepared and comfortable during your wisdom teeth procedure.

After your wisdom tooth removal, if you were given local anesthesia by your dentist, you can go back to your usual activities immediately. But if you were given general anesthesia or IV sedation, you may need someone to drive you home.

It is normal to experience mild swelling and discomfort for a few days, and it may take weeks for your mouth to fully heal from the wisdom tooth extraction.

During the healing period, it is important to follow your dentist’s instructions, avoid smoking and drinking through a straw, eat soft foods, and keep the extraction site clean to prevent infection.

After wisdom tooth extraction, it’s important to take good care of your mouth as it heals. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Don’t brush your teeth on the day of the surgery. If you do brush, be careful to avoid the blood clots. Rinse your mouth gently with salt water.
  • Eat soft foods to avoid putting too much strain on your jaw and teeth. Crunchy or hard foods should be avoided.
  • Drink plenty of water, but don’t use a straw as it could disrupt the blood clots.
  • Take any prescribed medications and use an ice pack to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Don’t smoke, as it can interfere with healing.
  • If you have a fever or your pain and swelling don’t improve, contact your dentist for advice.
