Wisdom Teeth Removal Summerfield

For wisdom teeth removal in Summerfield and the surrounding area, call on the expert dentists at Ocala Dental. Wisdom teeth derive their name as they typically are the last teeth to “erupt” in your mouth. This can occur when a patient is as old as 25. When wisdom teeth align properly and there are no issues with the gums, removal is not necessary. However, when they fail to erupt properly, grow in sideways, partially emerge or remain trapped below the gum, problems can arise which will necessitate their removal. The thought of having to have one or more of your teeth “pulled” is at the very least disconcerting to most people and having to have your wisdom teeth removed can be even more unsettling. However, at Ocala Dental Care our dentists are skilled in the techniques of wisdom teeth extraction, and this procedure is routinely done with minimal discomfort to the patient. Pain should never be a major issue with an extraction. With various local and other anesthetics, we can ensure your complete comfort through the entire process. Don’t suffer in pain or discomfort.  If you need wisdom teeth removal in Summerfield, call or contact us today to arrange for your free consultation.

What is the best time to have wisdom teeth removed?

Normally, when the patient is between 15 and 18 years old.  At this point, the roots are only about 2/3 formed so the extraction is easier.  Patients 35 or older may experience longer recovery times and the extraction may be more difficult.

Removal Process and Follow Up

Depending on the patient and the state of their wisdom teeth, the removal procedure is usually performed under a local anesthetic such as nitrous oxide, (laughing gas). In some cases, an oral sedative may also be used. Our dentists will explain all the options available to you as well as any possible complications or risks. When your wisdom teeth are removed the gum will be sutured and gauze placed over the area to absorb any bleeding. As with other procedures, patients will need a caregiver to bring them to and from our offices. A follow up appointment will be scheduled for about a week later for the removal of the sutures.

Following Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Unlike a simple extraction, most patients will feel some discomfort following wisdom tooth extraction. This will last several days. Depending on the severity of the extraction some patients may experience swelling in the area of tooth removal which can be addressed with ice packs. In the immediate days following the procedure, softer foods should be eaten, and spicy or hard chewy foods should be avoided. Your dentist will prescribe an appropriate post procedure pain medication for you based on the extent and difficulty of the extraction. In some cases, this may also include an antibiotic. Care should also be taken when brushing or flossing not to aggravate the area where the wisdom teeth were removed.

Dr. Hussein and Caylee were absolutely amazing I got a wisdom tooth removed and I was super scared. But they made it painless and fun. They talked me through it and consistently asked me if I was okay. Highly recommend.
