Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems like swelling, pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth. Impacted means they have been caught in the bone without fully emerging, leaving them prone to infection. If they do erupt from the bone, they are frequently covered in deep grooves and pits that catch food & plaque.
We always recommend wisdom teeth removal at a younger age to avoid future problems, and to help speed healing.
We Offer Pain-Free Extraction
In order to provide a painless experience, we provide local anesthesia for all extractions. We also offer conscious sedation as an alternative option for patients undergoing multiple extractions.
After an extraction, it is important to rest and avoid exercise, and you may need to return to the office to have sutures removed for proper healing. A soft food diet is advised for 2-3 days after surgery to avoid irritation, along with avoidance of spitting, smoking, and drinking through a straw.
With IV sedation, we bring in an anesthesiologist to ensure our patients are completely at ease. We have a sound-dampened and fully-private specialized surgery room for your extra comfort.
If you have any questions about your extraction you can always reach our office at 614-799-9140 to talk about your concerns.
