DO I HAVE TO EXTRACT WISDOM TEETH?

If it is properly formed or fully embedded in a bone, and does not interfere with nearby teeth or nerves, it doesn’t need to be extracted. However, if it is in the bone, it is recommended to be extracted, because there is a possibility that it will develop into a cyst later.

DO I HAVE TO EXTRACT WISDOM TEETH?

If the lower wisdom tooth falls towards the 2nd molar, a lot of food gets caught between the 2nd molar and wisdom teeth. It may cause the 2nd molar to rot. The decay will cause pain and damage the neighboring teeth.

When wisdom teeth are severely rotten and left untreated, the inflammation will cause the face to swell, and forbid the mouth to open well. In severe cases, it may even lead to death.

PRECAUTIONS AFTER WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION

  • Once the anesthetic wears off, you may feel minor pain. Until the anesthetic completely wears off, try not to eat solid food to prevent chewing your tongue and cheek.
  • Keep biting on the gauze for at least 2 hours, do not spit out the saliva.
    If the bleeding persists, please get in touch with us.
  • Do not smoke until you remove the stitches.
  • You may experience swelling for 3~4 days. Vitamin C (Juice) intake may help with the swelling.
  • You should regularly brush your teeth even after the extraction. If it is too hard to brush your teeth, gargle with clean water or mouth wash.
