Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge in the back of your mouth, typically in your late teens or early twenties. For some people, these teeth grow in without any issues. However, many people experience complications such as pain, infection, or crowding of surrounding teeth, making wisdom tooth extraction necessary.
The Extraction Process
Our skilled dental team will begin by examining your mouth and taking x-rays to determine the best approach for your extraction. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, meaning you will be awake but won’t feel any pain.
During the procedure, your dentist will create a small incision in your gum tissue and remove the tooth. In some cases, the tooth may need to be broken into smaller pieces for easier removal. Once the tooth has been removed, the area will be thoroughly cleaned, and a gauze pad will be placed over the socket to control any bleeding.
After your wisdom tooth extraction, it’s normal to experience some swelling, pain, and bleeding. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site to promote healing and prevent infection. You may need to avoid certain foods and activities for a few days while the area heals.
It’s essential to follow your dentist’s aftercare instructions closely to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery. You may need to schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure the extraction site is healing properly.
