How do I know my wisdom teeth are coming in?

Wisdom teeth get their name from the time frame in which they usually grow. These four teeth commonly grow in between the ages of 16 to 20. While these teeth won’t make you smarter with wisdom, they will be obvious when they grow. When wisdom teeth grow through the gums, you may experience pain such as throbbing, swelling, bleeding, or earaches. After the growth happens, these symptoms usually subside, but if they continue, that may be an indicator something else in your mouth has happened.

When should I get my wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth are removed if they don’t fully emerge or when they grow improperly. It is easier and more effective to remove wisdom teeth when the roots and bone are not yet fully formed. Getting wisdom teeth removed before problems like impacted teeth, cavities, damage to other teeth will help maintain your oral health. Wisdom teeth can grow sideways, emerge partway, or remain trapped. While they may grow correctly, many dentists recommend getting them taken out as a precaution to prevent dental issues down the road.

What is recovery like after wisdom teeth extraction?

Recovery after wisdom teeth extraction is critical to prevent infection and to return to daily activities. Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine procedure, and the area in the mouth will get numbed with a local anesthetic. Some pain and swelling are likely to occur but will go away after a few days. During this time, rinse gently with a saltwater solution, avoid using a straw, eat soft foods, and continue your oral hygiene routine.

Please call our office if, after following post-op instructions, you have prolonged or severe pain, swelling, bleeding, or fever.
