Surgical Wisdom Tooth Extraction

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-patient

Your wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are located in the very back of your mouth. They usually erupt in your late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth can cause a number of problems when they don’t grow in properly, including impaction inside the jaw, gum pain and swelling, tooth decay in neighboring teeth, infection, cysts, and crowding of other teeth. When they are impacted or cause harm, it may be best to remove them. A surgical wisdom tooth extraction can both correct existing problems and prevent future complications.

The Process of Wisdom Teeth Removal 



The procedure can generally be performed in a dentist’s or oral surgeon’s office. In complicated cases, it may require hospitalization. Before your surgeon begins, the incision area will be numbed with anesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain. If you’re having multiple teeth removed, you may receive general anesthesia instead. To remove the tooth, the surgeon will make an incision over the gum tissue that covers it. If the tooth is difficult to extract, it may be cut into several pieces before it is disconnected from your jawbone. Stitches are used to close the incision if necessary.

Self-Care After Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Recovery generally takes several days. You will receive prescription medication to control pain if needed. To help reduce post-surgical bleeding, bite gently on a piece of gauze. If you still have significant bleeding after 24 hours, inform your dentist or surgeon. While your mouth is still numb from the anesthetic, be careful to avoid biting your lips, tongue, or inner cheek. Take it easy for a day or so after your surgery. Activity can increase pain and bleeding. Eat soft foods like pudding or soup while you recover. Add solid foods as you can tolerate them. Do not smoke or use a straw for at least 24 hours after surgery. Possible long-term complications of wisdom tooth extraction include jaw pain, damage to existing dental work, and extended or permanent numbness in the mouth or lips. Report any unusual symptoms to your dentist or surgeon promptly.
