What are the wisdom teeth and where are they located?
The wisdom teeth are the third molars, which usually sprout at the age of 18-25, but may sprout later or not grow at all or may not appear at all. Wisdom teeth grow in both jaws, and most adults have four of them. The wisdom teeth are problematic due to the lack of space to grow. The jaws of most people simply do not have enough space for 32 teeth. Because there is not enough space for wisdom teeth to sprout properly, they end up crooked or incomplete. Crooked teeth damage the enamel of the surrounding teeth and irregular positioning makes interdental cleaning much more difficult. Underdeveloped wisdom teeth can be partially “overgrown” with gum tissue, which can also build up bacteria.
When is it necessary to have wisdom teeth removed
When dealing with wisdom teeth, it is important to not hesitate. After the third molars are fully formed, removal procedures become more difficult, and the recovery period is longer. If irregular positioning of teeth causes inflammation or damage to adjacent teeth, they should be removed.
Dental care after wisdom teeth removal
The patient should avoid eating for at least 3-4 hours after the procedure. Try to avoid hot food and drinks for the remainder of the day, do not touch the wound with fingers or tongue, and avoid physical exertion.
