Are you looking to get your wisdom teeth removed in Austin, Texas?
Wisdom tooth extraction is a common procedure that millions of Americans undergo each year. Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to come in and each adult has four wisdom teeth: two on the top and two on the bottom. The removal of these teeth is often necessary due to array of possible complications that come with these teeth coming in. If the teeth impact there is a risk of pain and a high risk of infection. Other teeth can also become damaged if wisdom teeth break the surface and can cause many other dental issues. Removing these teeth before or after impact is usually the solution to these problems.
When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?
Wisdom teeth should be removed early to avoid surgical complications and decrease the risk of potential problems during surgery. It is encouraged to have wisdom teeth extracted prior to breaking the surface, due to the risk of infection. If the teeth do impact gum surface, the surgery will be more difficult to perform. The longer one waits, the longer the recovery time will be and there is a much higher risk of procedure complication. The typical recovery time is two to three days of resting and avoiding any strenuous activity, accompanied by a soft food diet for three to seven days.
