Ways to Battle Your Wisdom Teeth Concerns By SEO Admin on July 16, 2012

The wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to grow in the back of the mouth. They usually come in during the late teens or early 20s. Most people eventually end up having to get their wisdom teeth cut out or extracted. Sometimes, the teeth are impacted and cannot break through the gums while some people may even experience severe pain. Dentists usually do not opt for wisdom teeth removal unless the patient is having problems. People who suspect that they need their wisdom teeth removed should consult with our South Charlotte Dentist.

A dentist will perform a thorough examination to see if it is best to remove the wisdom teeth. If wisdom teeth removal is the only option, the dentist will recommend that the patient schedule an appointment with a sedation dentistry Charlotte as soon as possible.

If a patient is just getting one or tooth teeth removed, the sedation dentistry will usually just give the patient a local anesthetic. Patients who are getting all of their wisdom teeth cut out will need to be put under general anesthesia. The dentist will cut the gums open, remove the teeth and insert the stitches.

It is very important for patients to make sure that they follow all of their dentists orders so that the recovery process will go smoother. Patients should eat soft foods for a few days and rest. They should also make sure that they rinse their mouths out with salt water after every meal. The stitches will be removed after a few days.

Patients who cannot get to a dentist right away should apply ice to the infected tooth. It may also be beneficial to take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Aspirin.

If you have any questions or would like more information about wisdom teeth removal or extraction, please contact ourCharlotte dentist office at 704-543-1102 or by using our convenient online appointment request form.
