Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Miami:

Are you in need of wisdom teeth removal in Miami? Does the cost of wisdom teeth removal in Miami concern you? Looking for wisdom teeth removal specialist in Miami? If wisdom teeth are not removed, they can hurt a lot and inflammation of the gums and surrounding areas can occur. That’s when you need an emergency wisdom teeth extraction in South Florida. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth and are the teeth least needed for good oral health. Most people have four wisdom teeth that come in through the gums in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes wisdom teeth remain trapped in the jawbone under the gums because there is insufficient room for them to erupt.

 

Advantages:

  • Wisdom teeth removal will make access to adjacent teeth easier
  • Wisdom teeth removal will also usually eliminate chewing interferences

Disadvantages:

  • Wisdom teeth removal may require a surgical procedure
  • Removal of impacted wisdom teeth may cause pain and swelling for 3-5 days

Impacted Wisdom Teeth are a Concern:

An erupting wisdom tooth can become stuck underneath the gums or bone. This is referred to as an impaction. There are different types of impacted wisdom teeth.   Horizontal impaction is a severe condition that always requires wisdom teeth extraction. Vertically impacted teeth may erupt in time. Distal impaction means that the wisdom tooth is angled back, towards the rear of the mouth. Finally, mesial impaction is the most common condition requiring wisdom teeth extraction in Miami.

Wisdom Teeth Recovery:

The recovery following wisdom teeth removal could take a few days. The severity of the symptoms depends on the difficulty of the extractions. If wisdom teeth have already come into the mouth, the extractions are simple and the recovery is minor with little pain or swelling. However, when the wisdom teeth are impacted, recovery will take longer. Pain can last 1-2 days and swelling can last 3-5 days. You can avoid complications like wisdom teeth dry socket by following the doctors post treatment recommendations very strictly. We recommend:

  • No rinsing or spitting
  • Keep head elevated
  • Put ice over area on and off for the first few days
  • Eat soft foods
  • Take prescription medications as indicated
  • Get lots of rest
