Wisdom teethAurora Wisdom Teeth Removal

The surgery for Aurora wisdom teeth removal can require time off work, and cause pain and suffering for the patient during the recovery period. A slight pain in the extraction area, swelling, and discomfort are all normal to experience during the healing time.

Every person experiences different recovery times after their wisdom tooth removal. Some people may be ok after a couple days, other patients may need a couple weeks of rest and relaxation. This depends greatly on the patient and whether they had impacted or unimpacted wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are also known as the third molars, and these are typically the last to erupt in your mouth. Not having them removed can be harmful if they do not emerge properly, leading to oral health problems like infections and pain. 

In addition, many people do not have the space necessary to keep their third molars without causing crowding in the mouth. They have a tendency to emerge on an angle, causing teeth to overlap and crowd in the mouth.

While it is possible to experience no issues with keeping these molars, most patients suffer one or more related complications.

Effects of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

An impacted tooth is one that gets blocked by the gums while it is trying to push through because of the lack of space in the mouth. 

When an impacted tooth tries to come in it may damage existing teeth in the mouth, or the gum in that region may become infected and swollen. Some patients complain of pain in the surrounding area of the mouth, or in the ear on the same side of the face.

Impacted teeth can push on neighbouring ones, leading to tooth movement, decay, or disease. Some people even suffer from cysts or growths in their mouths from impacted teeth.

You may have an impacted wisdom tooth and not even know it. Dentists suggest that patients between the ages of 16-19 come in for a radiograph to determine if their wisdom teeth are impacted because they can be painless and go unnoticed.

The symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include

  • Difficulty opening your jaw
  • Bad breath
  • Swelling of the gums
  • Bad taste in mouth
  • Pain during biting or chewing

Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Removal

Having your wisdom teeth removed can help prevent inflammation and infection, due to the limited space in your mouth. When inflammation sets in, it is easy for infections to spread to other areas in the mouth.  

If you elect to have your third molars removed, you can keep your beautiful smile aligned. Overcrowding is a huge risk factor and can be avoided with removal. When teeth press on each other, it can cause damage to surrounding ones, and contribute to tooth decay and cavities.
