People who are born with both perfectly placed wisdom teeth and a large mouth find that having wisdom teeth is a great asset, but for everyone else they seem to cause more trouble than they are worth. That’s why the majority of people remove their wisdom teeth. Should you remove your wisdom teeth or not is a question best asked to your Tijuana dentist. Here is a list of things you should expect when going to the dentist.
• Expect there to be bleeding, both during and after the procedure. So many people are alarmed with all the bleeding for the days to come afterwards. It’s really simple to handle, just fold a fresh piece of gauze and place it over the empty tooth socket or incision and bite down. It’s that simple. After approximately forty five minutes the bleeding should stop.
• Expect there to be pain. With tooth removal or any form of minor surgery, there will be pain and expect to deal with it. Before the procedure make sure to have ibuprofen and Tylenol at the house to help you. In some cases the dentist will prescribe something much stronger for the first few day. Make sure to slowly reduce your intake of pain killers over a course of few days.
• Understand that you will be on a liquid diet for the first day or so, or at least until the anesthesia wears off. When you are finally able to handle normal eating, avoid all hard and crunchy foods. Don’t worry it won’t be forever, but for the time period burgers are off the table.
• Finally, make sure to brush your teeth. Make sure that the bleeding stops before you begin. The first 24 hours are sensitive, so be sure to avoid the teeth that is adjacent to your former wisdom teeth. After that, go back to brushing normally, just be really gentle where the wisdom teeth where.
