wisdom Tooth Extraction
Sometimes, impacted wisdom teeth may cause intense pain to patients. This pain is due to infection or pressure on adjoining teeth. This pain is alleviated by the surgical extraction of the impacted tooth.
Surgical extraction of impacted teeth:
- Before the procedure, we do an X-ray of your teeth.
- After treatment planning and any required investigation, we give local anesthesia.
- To avoid post-procedure infection, we keep our dental operatory completely clean and sterile.
- In the case of after surgery, some patients have some swelling on their faces. That will ease with treatment. Sometimes we prescribe antibiotics for that. With wisdom tooth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and some discomfort that can be eased with over-the-counter painkillers. When gum disease or periodontitis has progressed to a serious stage, antibiotics are given to lower the risk of infection spreading.
