Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Austin, TX

Wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are trying to protrude through the gums. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, the tooth is coming in at an angle and not straight through the gum line. This can cause pain, the tooth can come in unevenly, or the tooth may only emerge partially. Impacted wisdom teeth can also lead to infection, crowding, and damage to other teeth.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure that involves the removal of the impacted or damaged tooth from its socket. 

Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

  • Improved oral health
  • Improved smile aesthetics
  • Better chewing efficiency
  • Better quality of life
  • Reduced risk of infection

Procedure for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Your dentist will administer anesthesia to numb the area around your tooth. This will prevent any discomfort during the procedure.

They will use a pair of forceps to rock the tooth back and forth until it breaks free. The tooth may need to be broken into smaller pieces before it can be removed. If the tooth is impacted, the dentist will make a small incision on the gums. Using a dental tool, the tooth is removed from the socket. 

Aftercare for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

After your wisdom teeth are extracted, you can expect some bleeding, some swelling, and a lot of pain. 

You should eat soft foods and drink lots of water. Avoid hot foods or drinks, alcohol, and hard, crunchy foods. Ask your dentist for a recommendation for pain medication. Rinse your mouth with salt water regularly. And use an ice pack intermittently to relieve any pain, swelling, and bleeding.

Take steps to maintain good oral health. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. See your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. Schedule an appointment right away if you experience any complications like pain or bleeding.

Wisdom teeth don’t usually cause pain, so you may not realize they’re impacted. If your dentist recommends removing your wisdom teeth, it’s because these teeth can cause dental complications.
