Im 19 years old. Now my wisdom teeth or wateva start growing why? Why do i have wisdom teeth?

Does this mean im wiser? Those far back teeth are wisdom teeth right? Im 19 now i have wisdom teeth late bloomer?

No, it does not mean you are wiser. Back during the caveman days, the people had a really tough time finding food. The food was tough, however, so they used the very back of their wisdom teeth to tear into the food without any problems. They are the farthest teeth in the back of your mouth. Now since we have so much technological changes, we don’t have a need for wisdom teeth. It won’t do you any harm if you keep them, but it would be best to get them removed. When I got my wisdom teeth out, I got dry sockets. The dentist had to pack my gums with those strips and I had to change them out every two days. Just be sure that if you do end up getting them out not to suck on anything, especially straws, etc., and to be resting as well. My dad still has his wisdom teeth and he’s 46 yrs of age.

TMJ pain often occurs when someone’s jaw is misaligned or their bite is off. As a result any one or more of the nerves, muscles or ligaments in and around the temporomandibular joint become tight and strained. Over time this leads to inflammation of these tissues. This is what is known as TMJ disorder or syndrome which can lead to many painful TMJ symptoms. Dental TMJ treatment is widely considered to be a quick, easy and very effective way to get TMJ relief.

The question many patients ask is, “How did I get this problem in the first place?”

There are many possible ways TMJ Pain could have developed. At some point there was a trauma. It was either a macro trauma or a micro trauma.

Macro Trauma

A macro trauma is a major trauma which could be in the form of a fall of some sort. This may have happened either as an adult or it could have even happened as far back as childhood with an event like falling off of a bicycle. In either case the head may have been distorted in some way because of the trauma or bumps may have occurred around the jaw.

Another major source of trauma is being hit. A very common example of this is being involved in an auto accident. Again, this trauma may have happened many years ago but it is still causing pain today stemming from a TMJ problem. When you are hit from behind in an auto accident whiplash can occur. When this happens the head moves forward and backwards aggressively. The head accelerates and decelerates very quickly. As this happens, the muscles and ligaments of the neck can be stretched and start a process that leads to pain in any one of a number of locations throughout the head or body.

Wisdom teeth extraction is another example of a situation where muscles, ligaments or nerves related to the jaw and TMJ could be overly stretched and this can lead to TMJ related pain. This would have occurred when a patients’ jaw was stretched open while asleep.

Micro Trauma

A micro trauma is a minor trauma. Examples of this type of trauma is clenching or grinding your teeth. This can occur while awake or even during sleep. In both cases it is common for the person to not be aware they are even doing this. On the surface this seems to be a less severe type of trauma but the real power behind this type of trauma is that it can be constant or nearly constant. It can also occur over the course of many years, often without the person even realizing they are doing this.

As clenching and grinding of the teeth occurs over time, the jaw and body starts to reposition itself. As a result, the surrounding tissues such as nerves, ligaments and muscles become strained and get tighter.

In both types of trauma, as tissues become injured or strained and become tighter, inflammation sets in which in turn is responsible for the pain.

TMJ Symptoms

TMJ pain is felt because of a structural problem. And, it is important to clearly understand that the pain someone feels from a TMJ problem is not limited to only the jaw area. Chronic pain is often not felt at the site where the root cause of the problem is. TMJ problems can be the root cause of jaw pain and lock jaw but it can also be responsible for headaches or migraines, neck pain and even have effects much further away such as with tingling hands or hand numbness.

The opposite can happen too. A problem in the lower back can come all the way up to the TMJ area because when there is a structural problem many areas of the body are connected.

This confuses many patients as well as health care practitioners. As a result, many people needlessly suffer with TMJ pain for years or even a decade or more even though have been to five or ten or more doctors or specialists.

For most people, sometime in their early twenties, their dentist will say to them during a routine check-up: “Those wisdom teeth need to go! So, when would be a good time to come in and have them ripped out?”

The usual answer is: “Gosh, I’m pretty busy with work and all… maybe next year?”

Any dentist will tell you that the sooner you get them pulled, the less painful they’ll be. It’s much easier to get them out when you’re 21 than when you’re 31. There’s less pain and much less risk of problem which may mean another trip to the dentist!

What It’s Like Getting Wisdom Teeth Yanked Out Of Your Head

In modern dentistry, we’ve moved beyond the string-tied-to-a-doorknob and WHAMMO! Technique. Instead, the dental experts will open up your gums and extract the teeth and connecting bones. They may sew you back up with a few stitches, which will dissolve naturally.

Some dentists prefer to take them all out at once, and some choose instead to do one or two at a time. Age is usually a factor in this. Taking them all out at once can be a much bigger operation, and usually goes more smoothly with younger patients. Sometimes, getting them all out will require a hospital stay. It might sound a little scary, but most folks agree that it beats having to keep going back again and again for extraction.

This will also determine the anesthetic used. Your dental expert will have plenty of giggle gas to keep you high as a kite while they remove your wisdom teeth. Usually, they use local anesthetic, which just numbs the immediate area and fills your head with happy thoughts. When taking out all of them, or when it looks like it might be tricky, the dentist will give you a one-way ticket to a psychedelic paradise, and when you come back you’ll have a few less tooth than before.

Recovery Can Be A Breeze

During recovery it’s important to clean the area as directed by the expert, and take proper care to prevent “dry socket.” This is when the blood doesn’t clot completely, and leaves your bone exposed to air, food and other irritants. It only happens in about 5% of cases, but you should be careful. Developing dry socket means… more visits to the dental clinic!

Having your wisdom teeth pulled is no big deal. Just take a few days off work, and put yourself in the hands of a good dentist. Get it done as soon as possible, and it’ll be smooth and easy!

Suggestion for wisdom teeth pain?

I had 3 impacted wisdom teeth extracted this morning. Two were in the bone (halfway into my sinus) and one was in the bone right next to a nerve. The extraction took a while and was tough, and the pain now is unbearable. I have been taking percocet every four hours and icing it nonstop…. any suggestions?

stop icing it.. my sister did when hers were impacted, and it made her cheeks turn into softballs..(hers were also impacted) and when mine werent impacted, the ice also made my cheeks huge, and also made them hurt so much worse. second time around, i used one painkiller throughout the entire time and no ice.. instead i used warm washclothes for 20 mins.. and i had no swelling or anything(i had 2 out and then another 2 out). of course, i dont know what its like to have an impacted tooth… but try going to sleep if its possible.. the more you sleep, the quicker the time will pass!

A dry socket is a fairly common complication associated with tooth extractions. It happens when the blood clot is lost from the socket after bleeding has stopped but before the clot has organized into new tissue. The socket is now unable to heal* and bare bone is exposed at its base. This, as you can imagine, can be excruciatingly painful.

*Well, it probably would heal eventually if left untreated but you would have a lot of pain over a long time.

It is normal to experience some discomfort following a tooth extraction but if the pain begins to intensify after a few days, you need to see your dentist as this is typical of a dry socket.

Why do you get a dry socket?

There are a range of factors:

  • You did not follow your dentist’s post-operative instructions NOT to rinse out your mouth for the first 24 hours following an extraction. It is okay to eat and drink during this period but you must be careful not to disturb the blood clot. To this end, it might be wise not to brush your teeth until the next day.
  • It was a difficult extraction – there seems to be a correlation between the difficulty of extraction and the likelihood of getting a dry socket.
  • You are prone to getting dry sockets. Some people just seem to be. As yet, we don’t understand why.
  • You smoke. Tobacco smoke interferes with healing.
  • You are taking an oral contraceptive. Increased oestrogen levels seem to be connected with increased incidence of dry sockets. This may explain why women are on average 20% more likely to get dry sockets than men.
  • The effect of bacteria in the area – either from a dental abscess (probably why the tooth is coming out) and/or because you have poor oral hygiene. For this reason, it is sometimes considered advisable to have a course of antibiotics before an extraction.
  • Age. People below the age of 20 rarely get a dry socket. Probably, youngsters just heal better.
  • Location, location, location. There is a greater risk with lower teeth and the risk increases the farther back in the mouth you go.

Treatment:

As you can see from the list above, the best treatment is to avoid getting a dry socket in the first place. If you do get one, you must go back to your dentist for treatment.

The usual way to treat dry sockets is to clean them out and fill the socket with a medicated dressing. There are a variety of suitable dressings, some of which gradually dissolve in situ. Others need to be replaced by smaller dressings as healing progresses. Sometimes the dentist will numb the socket and make it bleed to establish a new blood clot. If the area appears infected, the dentist may also prescribe antibiotics.

The pain usually diminishes rapidly and dramatically in response to these measures.

The operation

Surgery is often done at your dentist’s practice rather than in a hospital. Your dentist will review the recommended procedure with you so that you will fully understand and be comfortable with the procedure before it is done. You will also be given information about eating, medication, rest, driving, and other considerations before surgery as well as after.

Many people have their wisdom teeth removed under local anesthesia by their dentist. This means that they are awake but the area around the wisdom teeth is completely numb. Sedative drugs can be given with local anesthesia to help people relax during the procedure.

The operation will not start until the anesthetic has taken effect. It is often necessary to make a small cut in the gum over the wisdom tooth, and to remove some bone so that the tooth can be lifted out. Stitches are usually put in to help the gum heal.

Post operative healing

The healing process begins immediately after surgery as your body sends blood to nourish the tooth socket. Simple pressure from a piece of gause is usually all that is needed to control the bleeding and to help a blood clot to form in the socket, which promotes healing. Within a day or two, soft tissue begins to fill in the socket, aided by the blood clot. Eventually, the bone surrounding the socket begins to grow, filling in the socket completely.

As your mouth heals, you can promote faster healing and avoid complications by simply following the care instructions that your dentist will give you. While you may experience some discomfort as your mouth heals, following simple instructions will normally be all that is needed. However, you should call your dentist if you experience excessive bleeding or swelling, persistent and severe pain, fever, or any reaction to medications. A follow-up examination may also be scheduled to make sure that the socket is healing properly and that your mouth is returning to a normal, healthy state.

Post operative care

Following the removal of your wisdom teeth it is important that you call your dentist if any unusual bleeding, swelling or pain occurs. The first 6-8 hours after the extraction are typically the worst but are manageable.

At first, it may be possible to feel small fragments of bone with your tongue. These are the edges of the tooth socket and will soon disappear as the gum heals. Depending on the type of stitches used, they may need to be removed. Arrangements will be made for this to be done. If dissolvable stitches have been used, they will disappear 7 to 10 days after the operation.

Below are some tips to assist you after the operation.

1. Do not disturb the wound.

Disturbing the wound may invite irritation, infection and bleeding. Chew on the opposite side for the first 24 hours.

2. Do not smoke for 12 hours.

Smoking will promote bleeding and interfere with healing.

3. Do not spit or suck through a straw.

This will promote bleeding and may dislodge the blood clot which could result in a dry socket.

4. Control of bleeding.

If the area is not closed with stitches, a pressure pack made of folded sterile gauze pads will be placed over the socket. It is important that this pack stay in place to control bleeding and to encourage clot formation. The gauze is usually kept in place for 30 minutes. If the bleeding has not stopped once the original pack is removed, place a new gauze pad over the extraction site.

5. Control of swelling

After surgery, some swelling is to be expected. This can be controlled through the use of cold packs which slow the circulation. A cold pack is usually placed at the site of swelling during the first 24 hours in a cycle of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. After the first 24 hours, it is advisable to rinse with warm saltwater every two hours to promote healing (one teaspoon of salt to a glass of warm water). Do not rinse your mouth out during the first 24 hours because this disturbs the blood clots that are part of the healing process.

6. Medication for pain control

Anti-inflammatory medication is used to control minor discomfort following oral surgery. Stronger analgesics may be prescribed by the dentist if the patient is in extreme discomfort.

7. Diet and nutrition

A soft diet may be prescribed for the patient for a few days following surgery. You can gradually return to a normal diet once any jaw stiffness has settled. Very hot drinks and spicy food can increase pain and bleeding and should be avoided until the gum has healed. Also avoid alcohol as alcohol can increase bleeding and delay healing.

Most people do not experience any complications after having their wisdom teeth removed. Nonetheless, you should plan to see your dentist approximately one week later to ensure everything is healing well.

how do i go about wisdom teeth extraction?

i am still having problems with my wisdom teeth but i dont really know who to go to about it (obviously a dentist but what kind?) i want all 4 out at once and i want a general anasthetic. do i go to a local dentist or do i go to the dr for a transfer or to a hospital?? and how do i find out if they are good at wisdom teeth extraction.
i plan on going to hospital whether i need to or not.

My son (aged 19) recently had all 4 out at once under local anaesthetic at a dental surgery. It wasn’t a pleasant experience for him because they actually had to be cut out at the last minute. On the positive side, he recovered quickly, and was well looked after, all for $1200 AUS.

General anaesthetic in a hospital is more expensive since it must include the cost of the anaesthesitist. Surgery under a general anaesthetic also carries a greater risk and the recovery period is longer.

Not all dentists do extractions in hospitals so you should ring around and find one who does, or is willing to refer you to one who does.

Wisdom teeth extraction is a fairly common procedure (albeit painful) and dental surgeons are well-trained and experienced in this field.

Pick 6 dental surgeons from your phone book. Ring them and ask exactly what you’ve asked here. They’ll be very helpful.

Best of luck.

Can someone give me information about removing wisdom teeth?

a week from now im gettin all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. my brother got two removed and he said it constantly bleeds, is tht true?
will i be in pain for hours on end after the removal?
do they drug me durin the surgery?
do i realy have to clean out all the gunk that ends up in the holes by hand?

You may be sedated, or you may just have freezing. The sedation should relax you (or put you completely under, if it’s a general anesthetic). If you are getting something stronger than just laughing gas, you should have an empty stomach. The sedatives used can really do a number on your stomach, and an empty stomach means much less risk of vomiting.

Unless you’re completely asleep, you will also be well-frozen with Novocaine. There are several strengths of it, and your dentist will probably use one of the more potent ones. It may take quite a while for it to fully freeze you, or it could work very quickly, it all depends on your own nerve structure.

Your dentist will use small pliers to grip the tooth, in order to work it loose from the bone. You will feel a bit of pressure, as the dentist rocks & twists each tooth, and you’ll hear some cracking. It sounds really freaky, but it’s just noise. Listening to music on an MP3 player, & closing your eyes will help take your mind off it.

Afterwards, your dentist will have you bite down on gauze, to stop the bleeding. The bleeding will continue for an hour or so afterwards. If you really can’t make it stop, biting down on a cool, wet teabag will help. NEVER pull out the clots (the “gunk” in the holes). It’s necessary for the healing process. Leave it there, and it will become incorporated with the gum tissue that grows in. If you remove the clots, you’ll get dry sockets, which won’t heal properly.

You should take a couple of ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, or generic) before you leave the dentist’s office. That way, it’ll already be working when the freezing wears off. Ibuprofen is the BEST painkiller for dental pain, because it reduces the swelling, and that swelling is what causes the pain. You don’t need super-strong painkillers (Vicodan, Oxycontin). They cost a lot more, aren’t as effective as ibuprofen, and are extremely dangerous. They can also cause nausea & vomiting, which will make your mouth hurt even more.

Take another couple of ibuprofen, every few hours, to keep on top of the pain. You should also use ice packs, and eat a popsicle (just don’t suck it) or smooth ice cream, to reduce the swelling & bruising.

There will be a lot of swelling, due to the accumulation of fluid in the hinges of your jaws. The fluid is the body’s natural response to a major injury, and is part of the healing process. That swelling will greatly limit how far you can open your mouth, and whenever you move your jaw to speak or swallow or yawn, it will hurt.

The pain & swelling will reach their peak on the 3rd day, and will gradually decrease after that. During the first few days, eat only soft foods that are cold, cool, or warm. Avoid hard or hot foods, since your mouth will be very tender, and you don’t want to carve it up or burn it.

Do not smoke, spit, or use a straw until at least the 4th day. If you do, you’ll create suction, which could suck the clots out of the extraction sites, and give you dry sockets. If this happens, they won’t heal properly.

For the next couple of weeks, do not work out or exert yourself. If you do, you’ll increase blood flow, which will add to the swelling. You probably won’t feel much like exerting yourself anyway, because your body will be concentrating all its energy on healing the extraction sites.

How many days after wisdom teeth extraction can I start to eat regulalry?

How many days after wisdom teeth extraction can I start to eat regularly?
A week or 2 weeks?
Also when can I start exercising?

I also started getting an infection, but its better. When can I return to normal activities and eating hard food?
My right side cant open fully…

I have no flippin’ clue. Some people are able to eat semi-normally the same day they have their teeth extracted. I had all 4 removed last Tuesday and I’m still having some difficulty with eating normally. I’m still mostly sticking to mushy foods that don’t require much chewing and are easy to swallow.

Two weeks since wisdom teeth extraction, can I have soda now?

I had my upper and lower left wisdom teeth extracted about 2 weeks ago. Can i have soda now or is there still a risk of dislodging the blood clot.

It is healing ok btw. No pain after 3 days of extraction and it only bled for 30 mins post extraction.

You got along great after your extractions. You could have safely started drinking soda a few days ago.

Is it normal to have a tightness and tenderness in the mouth after a bony impacted wisdom tooth extraction?

I got my wisdom teeth removed almost two weeks ago. My two bottom ones were bony impacted, meaning they were sideways and encased by jaw bone. Apparently the doctor had to cut through the bone to break the tooth and take it out piece by piece. Anyway, the wounds have since healed, but now I am feeling a tightness in my mouth, mostly on the lower part of the inside of my cheek running all the way down to my lower jaw. The site of the wisdom tooth extraction is also still a bit swollen and sore when I press on the outside of my cheek or when my toothbrush accidentally jabs the area. Is this normal for two weeks post-surgery?
Thanks guys! :) I understand how you must feel sick of eating soft foods by now; it made me literally nauseous after a while! Don’t worry, in about a few days or so you’ll be able to eat normal foods again, and it will taste delicious!

I just had mine out last week…all 4 PLUS an extra molar. I STILL have lots of soreness and tightness in my jaw. If I don’t take my pain meds then I have LOTS of stiffness. I have been living off of mashed potatoes and pudding and jello…ugh, I can’t wait to eat a big huge steak! I hope you feel better soon! I feel your pain!

impacted wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are removed as preventive measures as well as to correct current problems. If the dentist sees that the tooth is already impacted or it might be problematic in the future, he will most likely recommend for it to be extracted. Even wisdom teeth that have grown in properly are subject to issues such as an infection from bacteria trapped between the tooth and jaw where it is very difficult to brush. If infections become frequent, it is generally a good idea to have the tooth removed as it can cause medical danger. If the wisdom tooth interferes with the tongue, it will need to be removed as the pain will numb the tongue. Also, anyone who has been orthodontic ally treated is recommended to have the teeth removed as the addition could disrupt the alignment.

Wisdom teeth should only be removed by experienced dental professionals. A panoramic x-ray is the best technology the industry currently has for viewing wisdom teeth and diagnosing problems.

There are several problems which can occur after the removal of wisdom teeth. Some are natural and cannot be avoided, and others the patient has control over. The patient should follow all instructions given by the surgeon diligently. Failure to do so could result in problems ranging from a dry socket to a life-threatening infection.

The wounds will bleed and ooze for up to three days after the surgery. One should refrain from rinsing their mouth as blood clots need to form and rinsing could dislodge the clots. After 24 hours past the surgery, it is good to rinse with lukewarm saltwater. This is to be done every 2 hours until the swelling reduces. The rinse should be applied every 4-6 hours for a week after. Gauze should be placed over the wounds to help stop the bleeding. The bleeding should decrease gradually. If it does not noticeably decline within a day, the surgeon should be contacted. In place of the gauze, a wet tea bag can be used as tannic acid will help to minimize the bleeding. An offensive smell can result from the blood clot along with a foul tasting fluid from the wounds. These will diminish after a week or two.

Dry sockets are caused by a blood clot falling out or failing to form. The surgeon will give advice as to how to avoid these. Painful swelling is to be expected, and is a sign that the body is healing naturally. However, the swelling should begin to reduce after it peaks. If this does not occur, the surgeon needs to be contacted.

One of the sad aspects of cancer is that friends and loved ones sometimes are reluctant to wish the patient a speedy recovery. There can be a good reason for this reluctance. Get well cards for someone who has had their hip operated on or their wisdom teeth removed, almost always don’t apply to a patient with cancer. So rather than offend, many of us choose to say little or nothing. But there’s no need to hold back. There are greeting cards and get well cards with appropriate messages. It’s just a matter of finding the right one.

So not only can you send a card but it can be one with a powerful and positive message. When the card says special things, you can send a card with confidence.

I know you can make it

Take care as we are all thinking of you

Our love for you will always be there

Hope is the best cure of all

With faith anything is possible

Imagine you are a patient in hospital and thinking all sorts of things about your illness and your future and suddenly in comes an envelope or three. You open them and read kind and encouraging thoughts. They may come from loved ones, work colleagues, neighbors, even folk you hardly know. But the card and its message takes you out of your world of looking inward. Your spirits get a real boost, you may even laugh or shed a tear. You feel grateful and touched. And all this happens because someone has sent an appropriate get well card.

There are many professionally produced get well cards suitable for cancer patients but don’t neglect the idea of making your own. If it’s from a child, it will be precious and tug at your heart strings. But making a simple card or even using your computer to run up something unique is a possibility worth considering. The personal touch certainly still counts today.

Remember too that cancer for many patients is a long drawn out process. The fight can last for many years. Knowing when a friend or loved one first discovered they were ill or had their first surgery means that anniversaries come into view. It might be appropriate to send a congratulatory card when a patient reaches a certain milestone. Remember people are living with cancer every day. Any small thought, such as a card, can take their mind away from the mundane and even give them a smile. Humor is often a real fillip to one’s spirits. There are professional anniversary cards for cancer survivors as well.

And there are many positive things you can tell someone with cancer. Don’t be timid, don’t be afraid that you may offend. Be bold in your thoughts and show how you care. Choose the appropriate card but whatever you do, send it.

Every new day is a time to celebrate life

I’m so glad I met you

You are my inspiration

As isolated as you may feel right now, you are not alone. Cancer diagnosis is no longer the end of the story. Cancer survivors prove every day that this can be the beginning of a whole new positive chapter in your life. Visit my site to access a series of interviews with CANCER SURVIVORS, people like you, who managed to fight cancer and win their battle. It’s absolutely FREE, no strings attached.
