So sit back, relax, and let’s dive into the world of wisdom teeth removal!

Wisdom Teeth Removal at FRESH Dental

Our mouth changes throughout our lives. During the early twenties, almost everybody grows a set of the third set of molars at the back of the mouth. There is a set on the top as well as on the bottom.

There is an interesting theory behind the reason for us developing wisdom teeth. Anthropologists and Scholars believe that our ancestors, who had this extra set to chew raw foods like roots, meats, vegetables, etc., handed them down to us.

Because of the space that they develop in, wisdom teeth mostly grow crooked and impacted. Due to this, they cause pain and discomfort in the mouth.

Since they crowd the mouth and serve no purpose, people opt for their removal. Most of the patients scheduling wisdom tooth removal sessions at our FRESH Dental offices in Gastonia, Park Road, and Indian Trail complain of these issues:

  • Pain and irritation in the gums.
  • Swelling in the mouth.
  • Difficulty in eating
  • Problems in swallowing food.
  • Formation and discharge of pus around the wisdom teeth.
  • Formation of cyst around the tooth.
  • Cavities.
  • Inflammation of the gums.
  • Sinus discomfort

The doctors at FRESH Dental believe in extending the best possible preventive consultancy and information to all our patients. Therefore, we advise our patients to undergo wisdom tooth removal, even if none of the above symptoms are present.

This is to save you later from pain and other symptoms like fractured teeth, loss of movement in the jaw, tooth decay due to cavities, etc. Failing to remove these teeth also subjects you to longer treatments and excessive financial burdens.

What to expect when receiving Wisdom tooth removal surgery?

Wisdom tooth removal might seem intimidating and leads to anxiety among patients. However, it is a fairly simple procedure performed routinely by the doctors at FRESH Dental offices. It is roughly a 45 minutes procedure.

Your doctor will numb your mouth with a shot of local anesthesia to help you relax during the surgery.

The doctor may have to cut your gums or some bones to extract the teeth. The stitches dissolve after a few days.

Everybody responds differently to anesthesia. Some people might feel drowsy for a day or two. While others just get up and go about their routines almost immediately.

We provide guidance for pre and post-operative care and take all your questions so that you completely understand the procedure and are able to take good care of yourself during the healing process. You can call us or visit our dentistry in North Carolina at Hickory, Huntersville, and Concord.

Some Do’s and Don’ts prescribed by FRESH Dental are:


  • Don’t eat hard or sticky foods. This may scratch your wounds.
  • Don’t smoke. This slows down the healing process.
  • Don’t brush too harshly. You should rinse your mouth gently with warm salted water.


  • Use an ice pack to reduce swelling.
  • Eat soft foods like rice, soup, etc.
  • Take your medications regularly
  • Follow good hygiene procedures
  • Call your doctor in case you suffer from any pain, swelling, or discomfort.


In conclusion, getting your wisdom teeth out can be a daunting experience, but with the right preparation and care, it can be a smooth process. Remember to follow your dentist’s instructions carefully and take the necessary precautions to ensure a speedy recovery. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your dentist if you have any concerns or questions. At FRESH Dental, we strive to provide the best care for our patients in North Carolina and beyond.
