Wisdom tooth extraction is just one of the many essential services we offer.
One of the most common types of dental surgery is wisdom tooth extraction. This type of procedure is necessary when the wisdom teeth crowd the rest of the teeth, come in crooked, or cause pain or discomfort to the individual. If you think you might be in need of wisdom tooth extraction, our team at Northside Family Dental is ready to help.
Our experienced dental staff are proud to serve the community of Gibsonia, Florida to help people of all ages with issues they’re experiencing with their wisdom teeth. When you choose our dental office for wisdom tooth extraction, you can expect friendly service and the latest technology to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
During a standard tooth removal procedure, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area or a sedative so you don’t have to remain awake during the surgery. In either case, you shouldn’t feel any pain when the wisdom teeth are being removed. The dentist will make an incision to fully expose each wisdom tooth, break the tooth into segments if it makes it easier to extract, and then remove the tooth completely. After cleaning out each hole left behind, they might stitch up the gums if needed and place gauze in the mouth to help control the bleeding.
After wisdom tooth extraction, you can expect some swelling and soreness, and you’ll want to avoid tough and chewy foods for several days. It’s a good idea to stock up on some ice cream before your procedure!
