Do you live in the Marble Falls area and need to have your wisdom teeth extracted?
Wisdom teeth removal is an extremely common surgery that thousands of American citizens undergo each year. Wisdom teeth are the final adult teeth to come in and they have been known to cause problems for other teeth. Since each adult has two top wisdom teeth and two bottom wisdom teeth, the other teeth can shift around or become damaged in this growing process. These teeth need to be extracted because if they break the gum surface before removal, there is a high risk of infection and/or pain, as well as surgical complications.
Wisdom Teeth Should Be Removed ASAP
Wisdom teeth should be extracted ASAP due to the occurrence of complications if the patient decides to wait. Oral health care professionals recommend that wisdom be removed as early as possible to avoid any complications, whether they be surgical or nonsurgical. It is recommended to have these teeth extracted prior to them breaking the gum surface, due to the high risk of infection. If the teeth impact the gum surface, surgery becomes more difficult to perform.The longer a patient waits, the longer the recovery time from the surgery will be. There is also an increased risk of procedure complication. The typical recovery time is 2-3 days after the surgery for resting and avoiding any strenuous activities. Recovery is also accompanied by a diet of mostly soft foods for 3-7 days after the surgery, depending on how one is feeling.
