Food stuck in my wisdom teeth extraction
I got my wisdom teeth removed about two weeks ago and the thing is I got food stuck in one of the holes. I have tried every thing to get the food out to no avail. Is it okay will the healing process push the food out or should I go back to the dentist to get them to remove it?
Though not comen some people never get their wisdom teeth in. I however, would not really call that a birth defect. Just one lucky person that does not have to worry about getting them removed.
If your friend is very lucky nothing will happen for a few people they have the room for them to come in with out any issue. However that is for just a few.
So of the things that may happen can be:
1) Sometimes wisdom teeth can be painful when they are erupting through the soft tissue and can become swollen and or infected.
2) If there is no room for them to come in straight they can push or move your other teeth.
3) Making it so that not only will you still need to remove the wisdoms teeth causing the problems but she/he may need to get braces to correct the remaining teeth.
No your wisdom teeth do not go back in once they come out. I am guessing that the person you spoke to meant that your wisdom teeth can grow in side ways. The problem with wisdom teeth is that there is normally not enough room for them to grow out like your other teeth. Therefore when that happen they can come in crooked pushing into your other teeth and cause damage. The is way people will have them removed before that start to happen.
For your bleeding you may have after the surgery you can apply a gauze pad or moisture rolled bandage you can use a tea bag as alternative since this will taste better. However I have not seen anything about it stopping the bleeding any faster the the others choices.
Here is some information I found on wisdom teeth.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to come in the back of the jaw bone, know most commonly as the third molars.
When do wisdom teeth come in? Most people get their wisdom teeth between the ages of 15 – 25 years old.
How do I know if I have wisdom teeth? If you cannot see them toward the rear of your mouth, wisdom teeth can be detected by an x-ray given by your dentist.
What are the problems associated with wisdom teeth? Sometimes wisdom teeth can cause crowding of the teeth, infections, cysts, tumors, jaw and gum disease.
What is an impacted wisdom tooth? An impacted wisdom tooth is one that is entrapped completely or partially by soft tissue which can also be a cause of bacterial infections.
Are wisdom teeth painful? Sometimes wisdom teeth can be painful when they are erupting through the soft tissue and can become swollen and or infected.
Should I have my wisdom teeth removed? It depends on a lot of variables such as whether they are impacted and causing pain, they are growing in and moving your good teeth. It is best to contact a dentist. Keep in mind some people never have their wisdom teeth removed.
Does dental insurance cover wisdom teeth extraction? Some dental insurance plans and dental discount plans cover a portion of the cost for wisdom teeth extraction.
These are all good questions that you should ask your dentist that did the extractions. People can give you advise based on what they or someone they know went though. But unless they are a license dentist their experiences may not be the same for you. So call your dentist they should be able to answer your questions over the phone.
If your orthodontist is advising you to get them pulled asap, maybe it is because they are currently doing damage to your other teeth (making them crooked) or they will do damage to your teeth.
If you are not 100% clear on why your orthodontist is saying to have them pulled. Then asked them. Getting them out may not make anything faster but will prevent problems with your teeth while you are in braces and after they are removed.
Hope this has helped
