In most cases, the removal of wisdom teeth is performed under anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. The anesthesia may range from local anesthesia to a general anesthetic. These options, as well as the surgical risks (i.e., sensory nerve damage, sinus complications), will be discussed with you before the procedure is performed. Once the teeth are removed, the gum is sutured. To help control bleeding bite down on the gauze placed in your mouth. You will rest under our supervision in the office until you are ready to be taken home.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation: IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation and or treatment visit.
