Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom tooth surgery is a procedure whereby the dentist performs a minor surgery to safely remove a wisdom tooth that is not growing out straight. In general, wisdom teeth will grow out of the gums between the age of 18 to 21. When they do not erupt properly, wisdom teeth can cause problems like pain and infection.
Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Removal
- Prevention of decay
When wisdom teeth do not grow out straight, food traps will occur between the wisdom tooth and the tooth next to it. With food traps, decay and gum disease can affect the tooth next to the wisdom tooth. Early removal of the wisdom tooth can prevent the loss of the tooth next to the wisdom tooth.
- Prevention of pain and swelling
Food traps between the wisdom tooth and the next tooth can lead to infection. With infection, patients often experience severe pain and swelling.
- Prevention of decay
- How long is the recovery period after wisdom tooth surgery?
In general, you will be able to eat normally after 2-3 days. You may experience mild pain and swelling of the face for a few days.
