Is wisdom tooth removal always necessary?

Not necessarily. If there is sufficient space for the tooth, they will usually come through without causing any problems. 

There may be some slight discomfort as they come through, however this is temporary and will disappear once the tooth is fully in position.

As long as the wisdom teeth are healthy, fully in position and easy to keep clean, they do not need to be removed.

What are the signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth?

The warning signs of impacted wisdom teeth are:

  • Pain and tenderness close to the gums in the back of your mouth

  • Swelling around the jaw

  • Swollen, tender, red or bleeding gums

  • Headaches

There are varying degrees of impacted wisdom teeth: some are partially impacted with just the crown showing, while others never break through the gums and become fully impacted. In some cases impacted wisdom teeth may not manifest any symptoms.

If you start to experience pain or any of the above symptoms, do visit a dentist experienced in wisdom teeth removal and have it checked out immediately.

FAQs for wisdom teeth removal in Dubai

Yes, you do not need to have your wisdom tooth removed if you do not have any pain or infection. Wisdom teeth removal are only indicated in cases where there is infection, crowding or impacted teeth.

For the first 24 to 48 hours, it is recommended to avoid solid foods and instead have semi-liquid and soft foods like yogurt, soups, avocado, scrambled eggs, oatmeal etc. Other options for comfort and nutrition include broth, vegetable juice and pureed fruits. Consuming cold things will also help soothe the pain, especially on the first day of the surgery. 

For the first 2 days following your wisdom tooth removal, it is recommended to apply ice packs against the outer cheek of your extraction area. Keep the ice pack on hold for 15 minutes at a time throughout the day. The cold compress will reduce the swelling by decreasing circulation. By the third day, it is better to switch to a warm compress to increase blood circulation. Also, keep the head elevated when lying down or before you go to sleep.

Following your wisdom tooth surgery, your body will naturally develop a blood clot over the extraction site to promote healing. However, drinking through a straw on the day of the procedure creates a lot of negative pressure in the mouth which can loosen the blood clot and dislodge it. The absence of the clot exposes the bone at the extraction site to bacterial contamination from food, and can lead to severe pain and infection. 

A simple extraction involving a fully erupted wisdom tooth can have a recovery time of 3 to 4 days. However, if your teeth were impacted, it could take about a week to 10 days to heal.

The cost will depend on the position of the wisdom teeth and their proximity to nerves and sinuses. We welcome you to contact us on 04 3987075 to discuss treatment costs.
