Wisdom Teeth Removal
Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Have you been putting off their removal? If so, The Tooth Doc can help. A number of painful and lasting problems can occur due to the arrival of wisdom teeth, so at some point in life, most everyone requires that their wisdom teeth be extracted as a measure of preventative dentistry. Luckily, with today’s dental technology, this procedure has been improved to maximize your comfort and speed along your recovery time.
Before extracting your wisdom teeth, your dentist will administer an anesthetic based on your own needs and patient history. Then, he or she will open up the gum tissue over the tooth, remove any bone covering the tooth, separate any connective tissue, and remove the tooth itself. Stitches will be used to close up the surgical wound, if necessary.
In most cases, your recovery from wisdom tooth extraction will only last a few days. The Tooth Doc dental team will provide with you with detailed information on the do’s and don’ts of recovery, and you will be prescribed medication to manage any pain. Finally, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re no longer at risk for the many problems wisdom teeth can present.
I love Dr. May. She is gentle, patient and very helpful. While my previous dentist tried to charge me for everything and suggested unnecessary dental work, Dr. May explained to me what she could do, what she thought would be the best option and asked what I would like to do. The front desk people are also friendly and helpful. They will work with you to find out the best payment option, with or without insurance. I will recommend Dr. May and The Tooth Doc to anyone who is looking for a great dentist!
