Wisdom Teeth: How Do I Know if I Have? There are some permanent teeth in our mouth that emerges at the end of our mouth. If you are 18 years old or above, wisdom teeth have evolved in your mouth, but there are also chances that they can remain inactive and never appear. Wisdom teeth can grow perfectly fine in some cases, adding four more molars to complete the adult teeth.

Yet, it can also lead to some dental problems under gumline infections or other health-related issues. In these cases, wisdom teeth removal is usually essential. But, you must be thinking about how to find whether the wisdom teeth are emerging or if it needs extraction. 

Why Do We Have Wisdom Teeth?

In general, wisdom teeth are parafunctional, other than being an additional pair of molars on each side of the mouth to aid in crushing food. Though due to their late eruption, these four additional teeth can become challenging in case they don’t have enough room to develop.

What to eat after wisdom teeth removal?

Our expert dentists recommend a specific diet plan for after wisdom teeth removal for 3 to 5 Days. The patients need to understand that wisdom teeth extraction requires top care so that the gum and bone healing at a faster pace. You have to consume liquids and soft, mushy foods for 3 to 5 days, including:

  • Blended soups 
  • Broths 
  • Yogurt
  • Pudding
  • Smoothies
  • Potatoes (mashed, sweet, or regular)
  • Apple sauce
  • Seedless, pureed fruit
  • Pureed or mashed vegetables 
  • Banana ice cream or regular ice cream

As the healing process starts, slowly include more regular, semi-soft foods such as:

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Instant oatmeal
  • Toast

Remember to cool every hot food before eating. Our expert dentists suggest keeping the area clean and following the prescriptions as directed.

When does it grow?

Wisdom teeth can develop at different ages mainly around your late teens or early adult years, between the ages of 17 and 21. Though some people get their wisdom teeth prior, and some people get them later.

If you are younger then wisdom teeth removal is easier. Not that you can’t plan surgery later in life. When a person is young, the bones around the gums are flexible and the nerve roots in your mouth haven’t entirely shaped.

As a consequence, it’s easier to eliminate these teeth. If you wait till the future, removal can be more problematic and more painful.
