Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Third molars are located at the back of the mouth (top and bottom) and are usually the last four of 32 teeth to erupt. They are often referred to as wisdom teeth. Insufficient space in the mouth often prevents the wisdom teeth from erupting properly. When this occurs, the tooth can become stuck which can contribute to pain, infection or damage to other teeth. Wisdom teeth extractions are often performed to stop or prevent pain, swelling, decay or infection.
Wisdom teeth extraction is a common procedure that does not require an overnight stay. After the surgery, the extraction site may bleed for a little while. If bleeding lasts longer than 24 hours, please call your dentist.
It is advisable to eat only soft foods for a few days after your surgery, do not use a straw when drinking and do not smoke. This is because chewing, sucking and dragging motion can loosen your sutures
