What You Need to Know About Wisdom Teeth Extractions

For people ages 17 to 24, wisdom teeth extraction is very commonly necessary. They grow in the back of the mouth, and often become impacted – meaning there is not adequate room in the rear of the mouth to function properly. Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth can include pain, swelling, and infection.

Healing Properly Is Important

After the extraction, it is very important that your wounds begin to clot, and heal. To allow the wounds to heal, you must be very careful around the affected area. Try not to rinse vigorously, smoke, consume alcohol, or use a drinking straw. Make certain that you take your pain medication as directed, and drink plenty of fluids.
