Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Most people get their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early 20s. While some people will ultimately keep their wisdom teeth for the remainder of their lives, others will undergo a wisdom teeth extraction. Since wisdom teeth often grow at a severe angle, become impacted or crowd other teeth, it is very common for these teeth to be removed. This routine procedure is incredibly safe, and typically little-to-no pain is felt during the process.

Before removing wisdom teeth, we will discuss the best anesthesia for your needs and comfort. Following surgery, if necessary, we will prescribe a painkiller.

The recovery process for wisdom teeth removal varies from a few days to more than a week depending upon how badly the teeth were impacted prior to removal. While most normal activities can be resumed during the recovery process, the patient must be careful not to disturb the blood clot that will have formed over the extraction site.

During recovery, it is recommended that the patient only consume soft foods. In some cases, it might take an entire week before hard foods can be comfortably chewed. Patients are also advised to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid using a straw. Patients who experience additional complications such as dry sockets are advised to contact our office immediately for necessary treatment.

Our Happy Patients

"I shopped implants for my missing two teeth for a while, and can't afford other offices' quotes. One my relative, who is a patient of Cozy Family, recommended Dr. Li to me. The price is affordable. A few months ago I got the implant placement, and last week I did the restorations. Done! Love my new teeth! Highly recommended! It's worth me driving 70 miles to the office."
