The Problem with Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth usually erupt during our high school or college years. While they can erupt without consequence in some cases, most cause crowding and discomfort. There are health issues involved as well; the development of wisdom teeth can not only affect the jawbone, neighboring molars, and nerves, but impacted cases can leave gum tissue vulnerable to infection. With all this in mind, it is best to contact our Castle Rock oral surgery practice to schedule removal to prevent the development of these dental concerns.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure
During your initial consultation, we take x-rays in order to outline an effective treatment plan. Wisdom teeth can be removed during the course of one appointment; as it is an extensive procedure, we offer IV sedation to help patients relax. Since we use absorbable sutures, no follow-ups with our surgeon will be necessary unless any special circumstances arise after treatment. Our Castle Rock oral surgeon and staff provide comfortable wisdom teeth extraction by discussing treatment in a detailed consultation, as well as providing sedation options to quell any fear or anxiety.
Dr. Bandrowsky advises patients of all necessary precautions to take during the days following the procedure. During the first week after surgery, it is recommended that any vigorous activity, including sports, should be avoided in order to guarantee proper healing. Each patient’s tolerance level towards food is different – you may feel well enough to enjoy a cheeseburger the next day - but in all cases, food should be served luke warm or cooler in order to avoid irritation. After eating, be sure to rinse thoroughly with water to ensure that food particles are not left in the socket.
If you are a smoker, it is imperative that you abstain for at least a week after the procedure. When the blood clot becomes dislodged, your tooth sockets will be vulnerable during the early stages of recovery.
