Wisdom Tooth

The Stages of Wisdom Tooth Development, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options

Wisdom teeth are the third molars that grow in the back of your mouth. They usually come up between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth are often called “third molars” because they are the last teeth to grow in, which is why they’re also known as “wisdom teeth.” Some people have them, some don’t. The wisdom teeth can be impacted or impacted and erupting, which means that they didn’t fully come up through your gums when you were a child. If this is the case, then you should talk to your dentist about what treatment options are available for you.

Stage One: The Root Canal & Post-Surgery Stage

There are three stages of wisdom tooth extraction. The first stage is the root canal and post-surgery stage. This is where the dentist will numb the area with a local anesthesia and then remove the tooth. The second stage is the healing process, which can take up to six weeks to heal completely. The last stage is preventing future problems, which means taking care of your mouth and teeth by eating healthy foods, brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and getting regular dental checkups.

Stage Two: Post-Op & Re-Occurrence

The post-op pain management is usually the same as the pre-op pain management. This means that there are no specific guidelines for post-op pain relief after a wisdom tooth extraction.
