How We Perform Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedures

Posted .

If you have wisdom teeth to be taken out, you may have them extricated in our office or be referred to a dental surgeon for surgery. Where you head will depend on the type and intensity of treatment you need to have completed. Here are a few things you can expect from your treatment:

When the wisdom tooth removal service begins, our dentist will review sedation decisions with you to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. (Typically, you will have this info told to you beforehand in case there is anything you need to do to get ready for it.)

Once the anesthetic and/or numbing agents have been used, the doctor will make an incision in your gums if the tooth is impacted. They will then delicately break apart and get rid of the wisdom tooth piece by piece. If there is any bone in the way of the wisdom tooth’s roots, it may need to be taken out too.

Once the tooth is completely removed, the doctor or surgeon and their team will clean out the spot, stitch it up and place gauze on it to promote recovery and clot production.
