A Dentist for Wisdom Teeth Removal Shares Tips for Post-surgery Care

Wisdom teeth are the last set to erupt in your mouth. Since they are common for persons aged between 17 and 21, wisdom teeth are likely to cause problems because there isn’t enough room for them. These latecomers may pressure other healthy teeth, resulting in pain and shifting. Although you can live a healthy life with wisdom teeth, removing them is always an excellent idea because you never know when they will brew trouble.

Tips for a speedy recovery after wisdom teeth removal

If you are young or lucky enough not to have been troubled by wisdom teeth, you may not know what an impacted wisdom tooth entails. Impaction occurs when your wisdom tooth becomes trapped underneath the gum line. Instead of growing upwards like other teeth, the wisdom tooth grows at an extreme angle or fails to erupt completely. When this happens, you need surgery to remove the impacted wisdom tooth. 

While careful planning is vital during wisdom tooth surgery, post-surgery care is critical to ensure a speedy, complication-free recovery. Dr. Kotecha shares handy tips to ensure an event-free recovery after wisdom tooth removal.

  • Medication: Like any other surgery, you may experience pain, bruising, and swelling after wisdom tooth extraction, but they are manageable with medication. We usually recommend pain relievers and antibiotics to manage your symptoms. Always take your medication as instructed
  • Rest: Avoid strenuous activities for about five days after surgery to avoid disturbing the surgical site
  • Eat soft foods: When hunger pangs strike, we recommend foods that don’t require much chewing. Consider soup, broth, smoothies, yogurt, etc., to avoid interfering with the clots and stitches
  • Optimal dental care: Observe diligent dental care to avoid infections at the surgical site. However, be careful to avoid dislodging the clots at the surgical site. Brush your teeth as you usually do, but be careful around the wound. Always rinse your mouth with warm, salty water
  • Recognize signs of trouble: Watch out for undesirable symptoms, such as increased pain, fever, continuous bleeding, pus, and increased swelling. If you notice any of these symptoms, don’t hesitate to contact our dental team
