How are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?
The unique complexities of each patient’s case determine much about the techniques Dr. Samadian uses to extract your wisdom teeth. He begins with a 3D cone beam CT Scan for a complete picture of your wisdom teeth in relation to the lower jaw nerve (inferior alveolar nerve). This provides him the information he needs to plan your extraction, including the type of anesthesia required to complete the procedure. Once you’re numb, Dr. Samadian makes an incision in your gums, exposing the wisdom tooth to disconnect it from any connecting tissues and the underlying bone. Next, he’ll remove the tooth with a minimally-invasive ultrasonic device, followed by a thorough cleaning of the surgical site. Stitches close the incision, and you’ll have gauze covering the area to facilitate a proper blood clot forms. Finally, LASER technology disinfects the area to reduce the risk of infection or further complication so your healing is as smooth as it can be.
What Recovery Can I Expect?
We’ve all heard about how difficult recovery from wisdom tooth extraction can be. You won’t feel anything during the procedure itself, but your pain will be thoroughly managed by Dr. Samadian. You’ll also receive a comprehensive aftercare plan to follow to improve your recovery while at home.
Patients who have their wisdom teeth removed before the roots and bone have fully formed (in the late teens or early 20) often fare better with recovery, so the sooner your consultation with Dr. Samadian, the better.
