Frequently Asked Questions

Wisdom teeth may need to be removed for several reasons, including impaction (when the teeth cannot fully emerge through the gums), overcrowding (which can affect the alignment of other teeth), pain, infection, or cyst formation around the tooth. Removal is recommended to prevent potential complications and maintain oral health.

Some common signs that your wisdom teeth may need to be removed include pain at the back of the mouth, swelling, difficulty opening your jaw, gum inflammation, and recurrent infections. However, not all problems with wisdom teeth are symptomatic, so regular dental check-ups are essential for monitoring their development.

Recovery time varies among individuals but generally, most patients start to feel better within a few days after the procedure. Complete healing of the gums may take a few weeks. Following your dentist’s aftercare instructions can help speed up the recovery process.

The procedure itself is performed under anaesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the extraction. After the procedure, some discomfort, swelling, and bruising are normal, but these can be managed with pain relief medications and aftercare instructions provided by your dentist.

Immediately following your surgery, it’s best to stick to a soft or liquid diet to avoid disturbing the healing process. Foods like soups, yogurts, and smoothies are recommended. Gradually, as you heal, you can reintroduce more solid foods according to your comfort level and your dentist’s advice.

The duration of the procedure depends on the number of teeth being removed and the complexity of the case (e.g., if the teeth are impacted). Generally, the removal of a single wisdom tooth can take just a few minutes, while extracting all four might require 20-60 minutes. Your dental surgeon will give you a more precise estimate based on your specific situation.
