Safe and Effective extraction of impacted wisdom teeth. Contact your Orange Park, FL dentist today!
Wisdom teeth typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. A vast majority of people’s mouths cannot fit all 32 teeth due to limited space, rendering the wisdom teeth unable to fully emerge. This could become a cause of gum infections, tooth decay, pain and misalignment of teeth. The teeth adjacent to your wisdom teeth may also be at a risk for these issues, depending upon the position and orientation of the wisdom teeth.
Eliminating Pain Caused By Wisdom Teeth
Though extracting your wisdom teeth may sound scary to you at first, the procedure is actually quite fast, effective and safe. When you come to our Orange Park, FL office for wisdom tooth extraction, Dr.Strout will explain every step of the procedure in detail and will also finalize your pick up and drop off arrangements, the anesthesia that will be administered and post-surgical care.
The procedure begins with application of sedation or anesthesia. The gum tissue surrounding the tooth is opened and any bone over the tooth is removed. The tooth is then extracted and the area is cleaned. The whole procedure takes about two hours of time.
It is advised that someone picks you up and drives you home after the procedure since you would be under the effect of anesthesia or sedation.
