Using dental imaging technology, Dr. Schof is able to determine if you or your child will need wisdom tooth removal. A qualified specialist may be contacted for more complex cases. With proper care and attention at home and by your dentist, your experience with wisdom tooth extraction can be calm, painless, and fast-healing.
A tooth extraction is a relatively painless experience! Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic that will ensure you are comfortable throughout the process. You may feel some slight pressure as the tooth is removed, other than that you'll be pain free!
For an impacted tooth that is embedded in the gums, an incision will be made and a portion of the bone over the tooth will be removed. Often, the tooth will be extracted in pieces in order to mitigate the need to remove any more bone than necessary.
After your tooth extraction, your dentist will give you instructions for aftercare that are easy to follow. In the days after your extraction, you will need to eat mostly soft foods and avoid brushing the treatment area. After about a week, your mouth should be back to normal!
