Reasons to Get Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is only necessary if your wisdom teeth look like they’re going to cause some trouble. By trouble we mean things like pain, infection, crowding, and damage to nearby teeth. It’s in your best interest to remove problematic wisdom teeth before they lead to other dental problems, which will require more of your time and money to fix in the future.
The Extraction Procedure
Just like before any restorative dentistry procedure, we’ll first take images of your teeth to plan out exactly how we’ll be extracting your wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure, but we’ll want to get a close look at where and how they’re positioned in order to remove them effectively. When it comes time for the extraction, we’ll apply local anesthetic to numb the area. How long wisdom teeth removal takes depends on how many teeth you’re getting taken out and how complex the extraction is, but in general it does not take long.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Aftercare
After getting your wisdom teeth removed, it’s important that you follow the aftercare instructions we give you to ensure you have a smooth, speedy recovery. Don’t worry, it’s nothing too complicated! For example, you may be wondering what you can eat after wisdom teeth removal. We recommend sticking to soft foods after your procedure, like mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, and soups, since these are easy to chew and lessen the likelihood of irritating the treatment area. If you’re prescribed pain medication or antibiotics, you should take them as the directions state.
