Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Friendswood
Our Friendswood dentists are dedicated to providing comfortable wisdom tooth extraction procedures to our patients. You don’t have to experience the pain, crowding, and infection that so often accompanies wisdom teeth. We can protect you from these wisdom teeth woes with a worry-free wisdom teeth removal at our Friendswood or Pearland dentist offices.
Why Should I Undergo Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that erupt in young adulthood. Unfortunately, the majority of us do not have sufficient space in our small jaws to accommodate our wisdom teeth. These third molars crowd the smile and increase the likelihood of decay, impaction, infection, and pain.
Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Painful?
Our Friendswood dentists have been performing successful wisdom teeth removal procedures for years. They know how to make your wisdom tooth extraction comfortable and relaxing with the proper use of a numbing local anesthetic.
If you still feel nervous about your wisdom tooth extraction, ask Dr. Montz about our safe sedation dentistry options. Nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV sedation can give you a customizable procedure that is pleasant and peaceful.
Post Procedure Care
After your wisdom teeth removal, you may experience some bleeding and tenderness. In most cases, complete comfort will return to the patient just 24 hours after the wisdom tooth extraction. In the meantime, you can reduce your swelling with gentle saltwater rinses.
We also suggest a soft foods diet for a few days until your bite regains its strength. Avoid straws, hard candy, and anything that may loosen the blood clot.
If you have any questions or concerns after your wisdom teeth removal, feel free to give Dr. Montz a call or come into our office. We will assist and guide you through the healing process.
After your wisdom tooth extraction, you will enjoy a permanently healthier smile. And don’t worry — we will use advanced technology and sedation dentistry to give you a high-comfort experience.
