Hello. R nWant to ask, I just finished wisdom tooth surgery. And according to the information I received from the doctor who treated me, I was sent back a week later to remove the stitches. What I want to ask, after removing the stitches, will my tooth be completely healed and can eat food as usual or is it still healing? Thank you

Hello Nurul,


Wisdom teeth or rear molars (3rd molar) surgery is performed if the wisdom tooth growth is disturbed, the teeth are buried or stuck in the gums, or are in an unfavorable position because they can cause various complaints or even tooth decay.


Wisdom tooth surgery itself is performed by removing wisdom teeth where the operation process will cause incisions that take time to heal. This wisdom tooth operation itself requires a longer healing time than other surgical wounds outside the mouth because the mouth is always wet so the healing will take a little longer. This operation will cause discomfort about 3-14 days after being performed during the healing process, can cause swelling around the cheeks, and also other complaints such as headaches.


For this reason, cold compresses can be used on the cheek area or those that are swollen, follow the dentist's instructions, avoid strenuous activities, choose foods that are easy to eat, avoid foods that are too hot or cold, avoid smoking and control regularly as recommended, one of which is to remove the stitches. . After removing the stitches it is still a stage in the healing process so keep the wound in good condition and eat and drink as recommended by the dentist.
