Wisdom Tooth Removal Questions

I had oral surgery for extraction of lower impacted wisdom tooth last week. Doctor also extracted upper wisdom tooth of that teeth. Today my stitches are removed. They said that you can start eating normal foods. But I can't open my mouth fully. When can I start eating hard foods? They said healing was proper. How many days it will take to disappear the wound which is formed due to incision.

Advise wide mouth opening exercise 100 times per day & side to side movement for the jaw muscles. Bundling ice cream sticks & thrusting the bundle between your upper & lower back tooth region. Increase ice cream stick 1 by 1 every day to increase mouth opening. 1 month for complete open wound healing.

Hi lybrate-user, wisdom tooth removal is a minor surgery and sometimes it can cause temporary damage to any nerve. Continue taking neurobion and follow up with your doctor to assess the improvement.

Dearzaid, please take some vitamin supplements for a month. Most of the parasthesia get to normal in few days and some times it takes longer. You will start feeling normal slowly as the nerve heals depending on the damage caused by the wisdom tooth or infection in the area. Sometimes unavoidable damage occurs during surgery. Do not worry. It's necessary to take lot of liquids while you're on supplements. Sometimes it takes 6 months to recover. Do go for electrical stimulation of nerve in physiotherapy if you're skeptical.

Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your "third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it. Kindly get it extracted as soon as possible.

Hi it's not common to have pain after 2 weeks. Do rinses with warm salt water 2-3 times a day and consult your dentist if the pain persists.

Get the tooth removed. Once your food is digested, chemicals that cause odour can be absorbed into your bloodstream and from there into your lungs; these chemicals then are exhaled. Diets high in protein and sugar also have been associated with bad breath. Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the build-up of plaque on teeth.), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, you may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.
