    What Are The Indications For Wisdom Teeth Extraction

    Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically appear around the ages of 17 to 21. At this stage, most people have fully developed jaws with insufficient room for these teeth. As a result, your wisdom teeth may remain impacted beneath the gum line or within the jaw bones. This can cause painful symptoms, including:

    • Intense pain in the back of your mouth
    • Pain that radiates to your head, ear, and neck area
    • Tender or inflamed gums
    • Difficulty in eating food
    • Difficulty in opening or closing the mouth
    • Oral or facial swelling
    • Increased pressure in the sinus cavities

    Poorly erupted third molars can also exert pressure on the adjacent teeth, possibly increasing the risk of teeth crowding. That’s why our team in Troy, MI, recommends getting early wisdom teeth extraction to avoid several complications.

    Question About Wisdom Teeth Extraction

    What Does The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process Entail

    The process of wisdom teeth extraction in Troy starts with a consultation. Our dentist will assess your symptoms and examine your teeth to determine if your teeth need to be extracted. If your third molars are easily accessible, we will opt for simple tooth extraction. It is an easy and less invasive approach. After anesthetizing your teeth, our dentist will carefully loosen them and remove them from the socket.

    In most cases, however, wisdom teeth are partially or completely impacted. To access the tooth, we will place a small incision over your gums and remove a thin portion of the bone. Once we safely remove the tooth, we will close the incision with one or more sutures. Our team will schedule a follow-up appointment to remove the sutures and monitor your recovery.

    Treatment Aftercare

    After completing the procedure of wisdom teeth extraction in Troy, MI, our dental team will provide a complete set of instructions for recovery. You should rest for 1 to 2 days after extraction and avoid strenuous activities to achieve proper healing. Start with a soft diet, avoiding hard, hot, and spicy foods that may irritate the surgical wound. With proper care, you will likely achieve complete recovery within 3 to 4 weeks.
