Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom tooth removal is a dental procedure that involves the extraction of one or more of the third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. These teeth are the last to develop and often cause problems due to their size, position, and alignment.
Wisdom teeth may become impacted, meaning they are unable to emerge from the gums properly, causing pain, swelling, and infection. They can also cause overcrowding of the other teeth, leading to misalignment and the need for orthodontic treatment. Additionally, wisdom teeth can be difficult to clean and maintain, making them more susceptible to decay and gum disease.
Wisdom tooth removal is typically performed by a dental surgeon, and involves the use of local anesthesia or sedation to ensure a comfortable and pain-free procedure. The tooth is carefully removed using specialized instruments, and the socket is cleaned and dressed with gauze to promote healing.
After wisdom tooth removal, patients may experience some swelling, discomfort, and bleeding, but these symptoms can be managed with pain relievers and ice packs. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the dentist, including eating soft foods, avoiding smoking and alcohol, and practicing good oral hygiene.
