The Necessity of Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Extracting wisdom teeth often becomes a necessity because of their potential impact on surrounding teeth. Typically, the mouth does not have adequate space to accommodate the growth of wisdom teeth due to the presence of other teeth. Nevertheless, these teeth try to emerge, leading them to potentially grow in various directions within the jaw, including horizontally.

Reasons for Wisdom Tooth Removal
1. Injuries to Other Teeth
An extra molar might push other teeth out of their positions, leading to discomfort and potential jaw complications
2. Damage to the Jaw
Cysts can develop around an emerging wisdom tooth. If left untreated, these can hollow out the jaw and harm nerves. Extracting the tooth helps in averting these risks.
3. Sinus Issues
Complications from wisdom teeth can result in sinus pain, inflammation, and pressure. Therefore, removal becomes necessary
4. Gum Inflammation
The gum tissue around a wisdom tooth can become swollen, making it challenging to clean and maintain proper oral hygiene
Bacterial growth can flourish in pockets that form between teeth due to swollen gums, leading to cavities.
Impacted wisdom teeth can crowd the mouth, potentially requiring orthodontic interventions. This crowding can even impact the alignment of adjacent teeth

Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure and Recovery
Before initiating the wisdom teeth extraction, a thorough oral examination coupled with dental x-rays will be conducted. This helps in determining the location and positioning of the wisdom teeth. To ensure your comfort, your dental surgeon will guide you in choosing the most suitable sedation method. The extraction process may involve either general or local anesthesia, and the entire surgery typically spans 60-90 minutes. The duration of the procedure largely depends on the complexity of the extraction. Post-extraction, the incisions will be secured with dissolvable stitches. This minimizes potential bleeding and aids the healing process. Once the anesthesia wears off, it's normal to experience some level of discomfort.
The recovery phase post-wisdom teeth removal generally spans three to six days. Mild bleeding post-surgery is common. Once the anesthesia effect subsides, you might feel some stiffness when attempting to open your mouth. While the initial wound tends to heal in a few days, there remains a possibility of infections developing even weeks post-surgery. Hence, it's essential to monitor any signs indicating complications. Adhering strictly to the post-operative care instructions provided by your dentist or surgeon significantly enhances the recovery process and minimizes potential risks.
Cost of Wisdom Teeth Surgery
The cost of wisdom teeth extraction can vary widely based on several factors. Elements influencing the price include the materials and equipment used during the procedure, the specific requirements of the treatment, the duration of the procedure, and the choice of clinic and dentist. In Belgium, the cost of extracting a wisdom tooth is also influenced by the specific condition of the tooth and the patient's medical history
Aftercare Following Wisdom Tooth Extraction
- Apply ice to your cheeks or jaw if you notice swelling or changes in gum color.
- For a sore jaw, use moist heat and practice gently opening and closing your mouth.
- Opt for soft foods like soups, pasta, and rice.
- Stay hydrated by drinking ample fluids.
- Start brushing your teeth from the second-day post-surgery.
- Take medications as prescribed by your dentist to alleviate pain or swelling.
- If you encounter persistent pain, swelling, or develop a fever, reach out to your dentist promptly.
- Avoid using a straw. The suction can dislodge blood clots essential for healing.
- Don't rinse your mouth too vigorously. Stick to dentist-recommended mouthwashes.
- Steer clear of crunchy, hard, or sticky foods that might irritate your surgical site.
- Refrain from smoking, as it can impede the healing process.
- Ensure you don't disturb any blood clots while brushing.
Several factors come into play when determining the cost of the procedure. The primary factor is the state of your dental health. Following an initial evaluation, including X-rays, the dentist will discuss potential treatment options and associated costs with you.
