Wisdom teeth extraction, also known as third molar extraction, is a common dental procedure that is performed to remove one or more of the third molars, which are the last set of teeth to develop in the back of the mouth. Wisdom teeth extraction is usually recommended when the teeth do not have enough room to properly emerge or develop within the mouth, this can cause various issues such as impaction, infection, pain, or damage to adjacent teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Recovery

After wisdom teeth extraction, patients can expect some level of discomfort, swelling, and bleeding. It’s important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by your Crescent dentist to manage these symptoms and promote healing.

  • Pain and swelling: Pain and swelling are normal after wisdom teeth extraction. The pain can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication as prescribed by the dentist. Applying an ice pack to the affected area for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day can also help to reduce swelling.
  • Diet: It’s important to stick to a soft diet for the first couple of days following the extraction. This might include soup, yogurt, ice cream, pudding, and mashed potatoes. It’s also important to avoid straws, as the suction can cause dry sockets, which can be very painful.
  • Oral hygiene: It’s important to maintain proper oral hygiene to avoid infection and promote healing. The dentist or surgeon will provide instructions on how to brush and floss the teeth around the extraction site.
  • Recovery time: Recovery time varies from person to person, but most patients are able to return to normal activities within a week. The healing process can take several weeks, and the dentist or surgeon will schedule follow-up appointments as needed to ensure proper healing.
