Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood. While these teeth can serve a valuable purpose, they often cause oral health issues that necessitate their removal. This comprehensive guide provides essential information about wisdom teeth removal, empowering you to make informed decisions about your oral health.
Understanding Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars located at the back of your mouth. They can become problematic when they do not have enough space to properly erupt or grow at an angle, leading to various dental complications.
Indications for Wisdom Teeth Removal
- Impaction: Wisdom teeth may become impacted, meaning they do not fully emerge from the gum line, which can lead to pain and infection.
- Crowding: These teeth can cause overcrowding and misalignment of adjacent teeth.
- Infection: Partially erupted wisdom teeth are susceptible to infection and gum disease.
The Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure
Dr. Valay Desai and Dr. Prashant Amin, both skilled dentists at DNTL Studio, perform wisdom teeth removal with precision and care. The procedure involves local or general anesthesia, followed by the extraction of one or more wisdom teeth.
Recovery and Aftercare
After the procedure, patients are provided with detailed post-operative instructions. Recovery typically takes a few days, during which you should follow proper oral hygiene practices and adhere to dietary restrictions.
