When is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?

Sometimes, the wisdom teeth come in just like regular teeth and don’t cause any issues. However, this is fairly rare. Most of the time, they need to be extracted because they are:

  • Causing pain toward the back of the mouth
  • Pressing on the nearby teeth
  • Changing how the bite fits together
  • Creating a gum flap that is trapping food and bacteria
  • Developing frequent cavities
  • Developing infections or cysts

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Aftercare

A wisdom tooth extraction is minor oral surgery, so following the right aftercare protocols is very important. The day of the procedure, the patient needs to take the rest of it off and not move around too much. This will allow the treatment area(s) to clot and heal properly. To that end, spitting, drinking with a straw, and brushing the teeth should be avoided for the first 24 hours as well. A patient should stick to a soft food diet for a week or so, which is why we recommend stocking up on items like yogurt, pudding, soup, and similar ones before the procedure.
