Stop living with tooth aches and jaw pain because of painful wisdom teeth. Turn to our experienced team for tooth extractions that will ease your pain and restore your oral health. Dr. Muddasar Tukdi uses a simple and effective wisdom teeth removal technique to remove the tooth quickly from the root with minimal damage or pain.
If the larger teeth in the back of your mouth do not erupt through the gums properly, or are causing your other teeth to shift, Dr. Tukdi may recommend having your wisdom teeth removed. These teeth can be very difficult to clean, leaving them prone to tooth decay and infection. You may need to have these teeth extracted if you:
We perform tooth extractions in-house and offer conscious sedation and local anesthetic to help you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the treatment. Wisdom teeth extraction is often completed in one visit, depending on the number of teeth that need to be removed, and, with a companion driving, you can return home shortly after the procedure. During the extraction process, the teeth are removed and the gums are sutured to promote healing and prevent infection. Gauze may also be used to control any bleeding. We will provide you with postoperative instructions and are encouraged to call us with any questions or concerns.
Healing times after a tooth extraction vary by patient, but most people feel back to normal within about two weeks. It can take several months for complete healing to occur, but following our team’s instructions can help expedite your comfort. We urge patients not to drink through a straw or smoke during the initial healing process to eliminate the risk of dry sockets and infection.
