Wisdom tooth removal can help you have the top-notch oral health you need. If you have questions about this treatment, then you might feel a little nervous or unprepared for your appointment. Our doctors, Dr. Mark Ryser and Dr. Richard Shamo, would like to help you find the answers you’re looking for. To do so, they are happy to provide the answers to these commonly asked questions:
Q: Why is wisdom tooth removal necessary?
A: It’s necessary because wisdom teeth can cause more harm to your smile and oral health than good. In fact, they can become impacted and cause infections in the gums. They could even promote dental issues, like cavities, if they erupt from the gums because they are tough to clean.
Q: Will I be under sedation during the treatment?
A: Your dentist will make sure you are comfortable during your appointment by giving you a dental sedative. The type of sedative used will depend on the complexity of the treatment.
Q: How long is the recovery?
A: Recovery should last three to four days. However, it can last longer if you don’t properly rest and care for the surgical site.
