Can wisdom tooth extraction make the face smaller?

The answer is: No

The size of the face is mainly determined by the jawbone, cheekbones, muscles attached to the jawbone, and outer fat, while wisdom teeth are located on the inner side of the jawbone and do not affect the size of the face, nor can they change the size of the face.

The reason for the illusion of wisdom tooth extraction and facial slimming is that during a period of time after tooth extraction, the surgical area will “enlarge” due to swelling. After the facial swelling subsides, it will return to the original size of the face, which can cause many people to have visual errors such as a smaller face.

In addition, after removing wisdom teeth, it can temporarily weaken chewing function, leading to muscle atrophy and a smaller face. In this situation, once normal eating and drinking are restored, the face will “enlarge” again.

Is it still necessary to extract wisdom teeth?

It depends on the situation. Generally speaking, wisdom teeth that are well proportioned, free from caries, aligned up and down, will not cause inflammation, and do not require extraction in their normal position.

Which situation requires wisdom tooth extraction?

The following types of wisdom teeth need to be extracted, otherwise you will ultimately suffer.

① Impacted wisdom teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth generally refer to wisdom teeth that are crooked or grow horizontally, and some impacted wisdom teeth are even deeply embedded in the alveolar bone.

Impacted wisdom teeth can push against healthy large teeth, causing irreparable damage and may also lead to acute periodontitis. If your wisdom teeth are also impacted, Xiaojie suggests that you go to a regular hospital as soon as possible to have them removed.

② Wisdom tooth decay

If wisdom teeth are decayed, we also recommend everyone to have them removed~

Because wisdom teeth are located at the innermost part of the oral cavity, the space available for operation is too small, making it difficult to perform oral treatment. Moreover, even after the treatment of decayed wisdom teeth, they are prone to recurrence, so it is best to remove them to prevent future complications.

③ Upper and lower wisdom teeth without occlusion

Related studies have shown that 70% of people will have wisdom teeth, some will have all four wisdom teeth, while others will only sprout a portion of wisdom teeth. For asymmetric wisdom teeth sprouting on one side, Xiaojie suggests that short pain is better than long pain, and pulling them out early will solve the problem!

Because if only one wisdom tooth sprouts from one side of the wisdom tooth, it is very likely that the wisdom tooth will excessively sprout and elongate, which will affect bite and even cause traumatic ulcers in severe cases.

If your wisdom teeth are not the same as the above, but rather normal wisdom teeth, then it is still possible not to pull them out. However, it is important to pay great attention to the cleanliness of wisdom teeth in daily life! Otherwise, if one accidentally gets decayed, they will still be unable to escape wisdom tooth extraction!

Regarding this, I suggests that you use the “JIEYANG bigsmile water flosser + Toothbrush + Mouthwash” combination for deep cleaning on a daily basis, to maintain good hygiene habits for comprehensive oral hygiene. Brush your teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste in the morning and evening, and clean the gaps between teeth with a JIEYANG bigsmile water flosser and mouthwash after meals. Take good care of every tooth to reduce oral health problems and live a good life!
