Wisdom Teeth Extraction Orléans

Are you or your loved ones experiencing discomfort or pain in the back of your jaw?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, could be the culprit. These teeth typically emerge in your late teens or early twenties, and if they don't have enough room to grow, they can become impacted, leading to various oral health issues. At Tenth Line Family Dentistry, we specialize in safe and efficient wisdom teeth extraction to ensure your comfort and well-being.

The Importance of Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Tenth Line Family Dentistry

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to develop in your mouth. When they emerge correctly and your gum tissue remains healthy, they might not require extraction. However, many individuals experience issues with their wisdom teeth, including impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to:

  • Pain: Discomfort caused by the tooth itself or due to infection.
  • Infection: Bacteria can enter the gum tissue, resulting in painful infections, swelling, stiffness, and overall illness.
  • Gum Disease: The infection can worsen, potentially leading to gum disease.
  • Disruption of Alignment: The pressure from erupting wisdom teeth can affect the alignment of your other teeth, which is of concern to orthodontic treatment.

The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure

On the day of your wisdom teeth extraction, you'll be provided with sedation and numbing to ensure your comfort. A small rubber cushion is gently placed between your teeth to keep your mouth open. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, our skilled surgeons will carefully remove them, taking into account your unique circumstances.

Post-Extraction Care

After your wisdom teeth removal, it's normal to experience some swelling. We recommend using cold packs during the initial 24 hours to manage this. You should also rinse with warm saltwater every two hours to promote healing.

To ensure a smooth recovery, follow these guidelines:

  • Do not disturb the wound.
  • Avoid smoking for at least 12 hours.
  • Refrain from spitting or using a straw.
  • Chew on the opposite side for the first 24 hours.
  • Use aspirin and Ibuprofen to control minor discomfort.
  • Stick to a soft diet for the first few days after surgery.

About Dry Sockets

In some cases, a "dry socket" may occur if the blood clot is lost prematurely. While they can be painful, they are typically harmless and easily treated by our oral surgeons. To minimize the risk of dry sockets, follow our after-care instructions closely.
