Our entire team takes pride in delivering excellent dental care.
Removing your wisdom teeth is a smart decision that could prevent serious dental issues down the road.
What to Expect During Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Having your wisdom teeth removed is a routine procedure. Depending on your situation, the dentist will recommend general anesthesia for your appointment, or he/she may numb the area in your mouth with a local anesthetic. If you have impacted wisdom teeth, the dentist will remove them in sections. This involves using small incisions in your gums to reduce how much bone needs to be removed.
What to Expect After Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Everyone will experience surgery differently depending on how many teeth were removed and their position. Some amount of swelling and tenderness is normal, as well as bruises. Ice packs can prove useful, along with simple foods that are easy to swallow. We will provide full instructions to patients at the clinic on how to best recover from wisdom tooth extraction.
