What You Should Know About Wisdom Teeth?


With proper aftercare, recovery usually takes around 2 weeks.
Sometimes, a person may develop an infection and will require antibiotics.
Symptoms of an infection include pain, swelling, yellow or white pus around the wound, and a high temperature.
There is a small risk of developing a condition called dry socket. This can happen if a blood clot does not form or gets knocked away from the wound. Dry socket causes an intense, throbbing pain. A dentist will usually need to cover the wound with a dressing.
Complications are unlikely after wisdom tooth surgery with proper aftercare. If someone has severe pain, a lot of bleeding, a fever, or any other unexpected symptoms, they may wish to see a doctor or dentist.
