What Are Third Molars?
Third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. They typically appear between the ages of 17 and 25. While some people have no problems with their wisdom teeth and they erupt normally, others may experience pain, crowding, or other problems that require treatment.
There are a number of reasons why you may need to have your wisdom teeth removed. Some of the most common reasons include:
Crowding: When wisdom teeth come in, they can crowd other teeth and cause problems with alignment.
Infection: Wisdom teeth that are partially erupted are difficult to clean, which can lead to infection.
Cysts: Cysts can form around wisdom teeth, causing damage to the nearby teeth and bone.
Tumors: Tumors can form on or around wisdom teeth.
What Is the Procedure for Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom tooth extraction is a fairly simple procedure that can be performed in our office. The first step is to numb the area around the tooth so that you will not feel any pain during the procedure. Next, we will make a small incision in the gum tissue and gently remove the tooth. In some cases, the tooth may need to be divided into pieces before it can be removed. Once the tooth has been removed, we will clean the area and close the incision with sutures.
You will be given specific instructions on how to care for your mouth after the procedure, and it is important that you follow these instructions carefully. Most people experience some soreness and swelling after the procedure, but this can be controlled with pain medication. It is also important to eat soft foods and avoid using straws for the first few days after the procedure.
