Today on Holistic Dentistry we’re talking about a topic that I receive questions about a lot: wisdom teeth! In this episode, Dr. Sanda details wisdom teeth beyond extraction. This includes specific ways to clean wisdom teeth, why wisdom teeth may be sore, and tips on how to take care of wisdom teeth in the mouth.
Then, we share why and when a dentist will recommend the removal of wisdom teeth and strategies for ensuring wisdom teeth removal is the safest option for you. Plus, for those of you curious about how to ease the wisdom teeth removal healing process, we cover that too!
