Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Friendswood
Our Friendswood dentists strive to provide comfortable wisdom tooth extraction for our patients. We will ensure that your procedure is as painless as possible. Once your wisdom teeth are out, you’ll no longer have to deal with the pain, crowding, and infection that so often accompanies the eruption of wisdom teeth.
Why Should I Undergo Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that erupt during young adulthood. Unfortunately, the majority of us do not have sufficient space in our jaws to accommodate wisdom teeth. These third molars crowd your teeth, increasing the likelihood of decay, impaction, infection, and pain. With wisdom teeth extraction, you won’t have to deal with any of those painful symptoms!
Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Painful?
Our Friendswood dentists have been performing successful wisdom teeth removal procedures for years. They’ll make your wisdom tooth extraction comfortable and relaxing, using a special numbing local anesthetic.
If you still feel nervous about your wisdom tooth extraction, ask Dr. Montz about our safe sedation dentistry options. Laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation can help ease your anxiety and nerves during your procedure. Sedation dentistry can make your appointment 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 using straws, hard candy, and anything that may loosen the blood clot.
