What Age Should I Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed
Wisdom teeth don’t begin to grow until your early teen years, which means that the connective tissue is soft and can be easily removed with little allotted recovery time needed. People age 17-25 have the most potential of fast recover (case depending), but adults 26 and older can have smooth recovery periods as long as they follow proper post-surgery care.
It’s pretty convenient that wisdom tooth removal gets harder at age 26 and up, the same age most people lose their parental insurance, but Ross Dental New Berlin has the means to combat that.
No Insurance is No problem for us
Patients can apply for CareCredit, which is health insurance that can be used for dental care like teeth whitening, dental implants, and tooth extractions. Contact a Ross Dental associate today for more questions on how to set up your CareCredit account.
Why Should I Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Though many of our extraction cases are related to immediate relief of tooth, gum, or jaw aches, we recommend that patients remove their wisdom teeth to prevent possible costly damages in the future, due to:
- Impacted Teeth
- And Crowding
These preventative issues can be solved with wisdom tooth removal early in your adulthood—if pain begins to occur late into adulthood then further surgery may be required, with hospitalization as a guaranteed path.
Get your wisdom teeth removed today with the trusted dentists at Ross Dental New Berlin, to prevent further costly damage down the road.
Extraction Recovery Tips
Our wisdom tooth extraction recovery tips will be given at the time of surgery, but here’s a quick, comprehensive list of the techniques to make your recovery smooth:
- Relax: take time off school or work to recover
- Avoid straws or sucking on bottles/mouthpieces
- Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling
- Eat soft foods
- Gently brush your teeth over sore areas
- DO NOT SMOKE until fully recovered—could cause serious infection, dry sockets, and costly repair surgery
