In short, the answer is yes. But there are some conditions you should be aware of before vaping after wisdom teeth removal.
Wisdom teeth usually appear in the late teens or early twenties. They're the last molars to come in and they take up space that would otherwise be occupied by other teeth. This can lead to crowding and misalignment of other teeth, which can cause pain and problems in the mouth.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure that many people have done as adults. But wisdom teeth don't just disappear; they have to be removed by a dentist or oral surgeon. This is an invasive surgery that involves cutting through gums, pulling out the tooth, and stitching up the wound afterward.
When Wisdom Teeth Are Impacted
If your wisdom tooth has not yet erupted through the gum tissue and there's no room for it to grow normally, it's called impacted wisdom teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause infections, cysts, and inflammation inside your mouth because there's nowhere else for them to go except forward into your cheek or back into your jawbone (which would require more invasive procedures). There are also cases where impacted wisdom teeth can damage nerves in your face or jaw.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to appear in your mouth and are often the last teeth to come in. Usually, these teeth emerge between the ages of 17 and 25 years old.
The four wisdom teeth vary in placement and appearance, but they typically erupt at the back corners of your mouth. The most common wisdom tooth eruption pattern is:
Bottom left wisdom tooth → bottom right wisdom tooth → top left wisdom tooth → top right wisdom tooth.
Wisdom teeth can become impacted (impacted wisdom teeth) if they do not properly erupt into the mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infection, swelling and other problems. The American Association of Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) recommends that you have your wisdom teeth evaluated by a dentist or oral surgeon if you have any signs or symptoms of an impacted tooth.
The risk of developing serious complications from the extraction of wisdom teeth
The risk of developing serious complications from the extraction of wisdom teeth is very low. However, you should follow your doctor’s instructions regarding when to resume your regular activities after wisdom teeth removal.
Wisdom teeth can be removed at any age, but most often they are extracted from teens and young adults between the ages of 17 and 25 years old. This is because wisdom teeth typically erupt between the ages of 16 and 21 years old.
If you are younger than 18 years old, your dentist or orthodontist may recommend that you wait until you are older before having your wisdom teeth removed. This is because it may be difficult for them to remove all of your wisdom teeth at once without causing damage to other permanent teeth that have not erupted yet. If this happens, you will likely need to have another surgery later in life to remove any remaining impacted wisdom teeth that are still present in your mouth.
