Wisdom Teeth Removal In Tampa, Lakeland, Plant City, Winter Haven, Bartow, Sun City Center & Across Tampa Bay Communities
Wisdom teeth removal or the removal of the third molars in the back of your mouth, is a common dental procedure for adults and young adults. Wisdom teeth removal surgery is only done under certain circumstances, and for some, this procedure may never become necessary.
The removal of your wisdom teeth can be a welcome relief if you are experiencing:
- pain or headaches related to the eruption of the wisdom teeth
- frequent infections or the threat of infections
- crowding of the teeth
- tooth decay around the wisdom teeth
Local anesthetic is used to numb the area around the tooth, and in some cases, general anesthetic is used to put the patient to sleep during the surgery. The procedure involves dentist the cutting through gum and bone to reach the tooth or teeth targeted for removal.
The recovery process over a tooth extraction can take up to two months. Shortly after the surgery, you may experience some bleeding and swelling. In the initial days after the surgery, you must take steps to avoid breaking through the blood clot or stitches in the mouth. No solid foods may be eaten in the days directly after surgery. As the healing process continues, you’ll resume normal life.
