Wisdom Tooth Removal
When you come in for your extraction appointment, you can expect to have some sort of anesthesia applied, so you don’t feel pain during the procedure. In some cases, we only need to apply local anesthesia. For more severe cases, we may recommend general anesthesia. We offer sedation anesthesia, which helps calm you and allows you to not remember much about the procedure.
During the extraction process, the dentist will make an incision in your gums to expose the wisdom tooth. If there is any bone in the way, we will remove that part of the bone. Sometimes, it is easier for us to remove the wisdom tooth in pieces, so we may carefully divide it and remove the pieces. Once the entire tooth has been extracted, we will thoroughly clean out the extraction area and stitch up the incision. Gauze will be placed over the surgical site to control bleeding.
