When you're growing up, losing your teeth feels like a rite of passage into adulthood. However, as an adult, experiencing tooth loss can be a distressing and costly experience that can affect your confidence and general health.
The good news is, the most difficult part is over! You've booked in your surgery, turned up on the day, are on the other side of the anesthetic and surgery, and you're ready to be picked up and taken home.
Here's the part where a lot of people go wrong - oral surgery doesn't end once you leave the clinic. To make sure you get the best results, and give your body the best chance at recovering without any further complications, you've got to have an aftercare recovery plan in place.
Formally known as third molars, their common name or what they’re notoriously known by is ‘wisdom teeth’ as they present themselves a lot later than your other teeth, therefore coming across as more ‘wise’ than your earlier teeth.

Missing teeth can cause self-confidence issues, feeling embarrassed about the condition of your teeth and you may find yourself not smiling as much as you used to.
