The right time to have wisdom teeth removed is when they are causing pain, infection, damage to other teeth, or other oral health problems, as determined by a dentist or oral surgeon.
The surgery is typically performed by a dentist or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. It may involve cutting into the gum and removing the tooth either as a whole tooth or in pieces. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia, general anesthesia, or intravenous sedation. After the surgery, you’ll receive instructions on what to do before and after the procedure to ensure proper healing and recovery
To find a qualified wisdom teeth dentist in Melbourne, you can ask for referrals from your regular dentist, seek recommendations from friends or family, check online reviews, and ensure the dentist is registered with the Dental Board of Australia.
The recovery time after wisdom teeth treatment varies depending on the complexity of the extraction and individual healing factors, but it typically takes about 3-7 days for the initial recovery, with complete healing taking a few weeks.
After wisdom teeth removal, what you eat plays a big role in your recovery. Here's a general guideline: First 24 hours: Stick to liquids like broth, milkshakes, smoothies, and yogurt. Opt for cool or lukewarm temperatures to avoid irritation. Here are some additional tips:
  • Choose nutrient-rich options to support healing.
  • Focus on foods that are easy to chew and swallow.
  • Avoid anything hot, spicy, acidic, or crunchy that could irritate the extraction sites.
