What To Expect During The Procedure


If you are looking to remove a wisdom tooth, then you are in the right place. At our clinic, we use the most advanced and safest techniques available to remove your tooth painlessly and quickly. Below, we will outline what to expect during the procedure and after it is complete.

Before surgery, you will need to make an appointment and bring some important documents with you. This includes your insurance card, driver's license, and proof of residency (e.g. utility bill). You will also need to provide a list of all the medications that you are taking (prescription or over-the-counter), as well as any metal objects that you may be carrying with you (such as a metal watch).

During surgery, our team will administer anesthesia using general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia. General anesthesia is the most common type of anesthesia used for wisdom tooth extraction and is considered safe for most patients. With spinal anesthesia, only minimal pain medication is administered via an IV in order to allow the patient more mobility during surgery. Both general and spinal anesthetics have side effects that should be discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery.

Once you are under anesthesia, our team will begin by making an incision on either side of your lower lip just below your nose. After making sure that all teeth are located correctly, our team will startRemove one tooth at a time using precision tools and proper technique so as not to damage surrounding natural teeth or gums . Pictures of each extraction are taken before, during, and after the procedure so that you can see exactly what happened. If any complications arise during the extraction process, such as bleeding or difficulty breathing, our team will immediately take appropriate measures. In rare cases where complications persist after surgery, oral surgery referral may be necessary .

Upon completion of the extraction procedure, it is importantto follow up with our post operative care center for instructions on how best care for your extraction site. Swelling, bleeding, dry sockets (a condition in which dead skin forms around inserted dental implants),and other complications may occur following wisdom tooth removal; it is importantto seek guidance from our staff if these symptoms develop. In addition, make sureto schedule regular follow-up visits with your dentist once home so they can ensurethat all healing has progressed as planned . Finally remember: always take pictures before, during*,and after surgeries*to document every step of this exciting journey!
