Reasons why wisdom teeth extraction causes a sore throat

What causes a sore throat when removing wisdom teeth? Tooth number 8 is the last tooth in the teeth, and is located near your throat, so it is understandable that wisdom tooth extraction directly affects the throat.

After having wisdom teeth extracted, you will experience symptoms such as high fever, swelling on one side of the face, sore throat, etc. And according to statistics, the most common rate of people having wisdom teeth extracted is sore throat, the cause is due to:

The soft tissues surrounding wisdom teeth are damaged

To be able to remove wisdom teeth, doctors must separate the gums, separate the bone and use a lot of force to remove the wisdom teeth from the gums. Because of these operations, the gums and soft tissues surrounding the wisdom teeth are strongly impacted, causing soft tissue damage.

This wound will cause the body to automatically produce new epidermal cells and pump blood to the damaged area due to external influences.

Therefore, the tissue in the area where the wisdom tooth has just been extracted will swell and be painful, and because the wisdom tooth is located very close to the throat, it will make you feel like you have a sore throat.

Local anesthesia leads to sore throat

One of the causes of sore throat after tooth extraction is because the dentist’s anesthesia process directly affects your throat to support breathing when wisdom teeth are extracted.

The oxygen tube is placed directly into the throat, touching the throat. This will make you feel a little sore throat and uncomfortable.

All bacteria have not been eliminated before wisdom tooth extraction

Some bacteria can exist hidden deep under the gums or between teeth. If the dentist does not completely remove the bacteria before extraction, bacteria will easily enter the wound, causing sore throat and swelling. inflammation, infection, etc.

To avoid this situation, you need to seek dental specialists for safe assistance and have your teeth cleaned to effectively prevent the growth of bacteria.

Sore throat symptoms are sometimes due to the wisdom tooth extraction process not being completely sterilized or sterilized at the dental office.

During the wisdom tooth extraction process, you can become infected with bacteria from dental instruments or from the surrounding environment.

For this reason, you need to choose a reputable dental system to ensure that you do not get infected during your wisdom tooth extraction surgery.

Wound care is not done properly

In addition to the reasons mentioned above, part of the reason is that the way you care for the wound after surgery is not correct and according to the doctor’s instructions, creating conditions for bacteria to grow, causing infection and gingivitis at the site. The location of wisdom tooth extraction spreads to surrounding locations such as tooth number 7 and the throat, etc. Therefore, wisdom tooth extraction causes sore throat.

When you have a sore throat, should you have your tooth pulled or not?

Wisdom tooth extraction causes symptoms of a sore throat, so when you have a sore throat or sore throat, whether you should have your wisdom teeth removed or not is also an issue that many people wonder about.

According to dentists, people who intend to have their teeth extracted and are suffering from sore throat or sore throat can have their wisdom teeth removed normally, which will not cause any effects or dangers.

Because pain or sore throat is caused by daily activities or weather changes, etc. and is completely unrelated to wisdom tooth extraction.

But in case you have a sore throat leading to a high fever, doctors recommend that you should not have your wisdom teeth extracted at that time. Because at this time your resistance is very weak, it will affect the wisdom tooth extraction process and the wound heals very slowly compared to the normal body.

How to relieve sore throat after wisdom tooth extraction

After wisdom tooth extraction, experiencing a sore throat is not a rare case, because this is a normal reaction of the human body. However, you can reduce pain with some tips as follows:

Apply ice to the swollen cheek

Applying ice is one of the effective temporary pain relief methods and is used by many people. Applying ice will temporarily numb the sensory nerves, helping to reduce internal pain immediately.

You will do this method by using a plastic bag or a thin piece of cloth, add a little ice and apply it directly to the sore and swollen area. Rest for 10 minutes and then repeat the above steps.

Gargle with salt water every day

Bacteria accumulate and grow rapidly, affecting the throat, leading to a sore throat. That’s why you should use salt water to rinse your mouth every day to kill bacteria and germs that stick to the surface of your teeth, and at the same time help your throat have better immunity.

The ingredients in salt water have very effective immune-boosting effects, helping to quickly reduce the feeling of discomfort in the throat.

A small note is that you should only rinse your mouth with salt water 24 hours after your wisdom teeth have been removed to avoid affecting the wound healing process.

Have a scientific eating plan

You should only eat and drink 3-4 hours after wisdom tooth extraction, especially do not chew food in the wound area, as it will make the wound worse.

Eat soft, liquid foods that are easy to swallow and don’t require much chewing. Because at this time you have a sore throat and chewing and swallowing becomes difficult, so in the beginning you should prioritize foods that are soft and easy to swallow.

Some dental experts believe that eating soft foods will help you limit sore throat and jaw pain, effectively reducing sore throat symptoms. At the same time, it helps the digestive system absorb nutrients more easily during this time.

In your daily diet, you should add yogurt containing Acidobacillus compounds to increase resistance after wisdom tooth extraction and safely fight tooth infections.

Provide more Vitamin A in vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots, papaya, etc. to help wounds heal faster and avoid infection.
