Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Does your office do wisdom teeth extractions?

In our office we provide wisdom teeth extractions under sedation. In this form of sedation we provide the patient with a sedative drug through his/her vein that causes forgetfulness. Patients are not fully asleep so the dangers of full sedation are avoided but the patient will not remember the procedure at all. This method is accompanied by local anesthetic so the patient would not feel any pain.

We also provide wisdom teeth extractions under local anesthetic with or without nitrous oxide sedation (“laughing gas”). Like the previous method, the patient doesn’t feel any pain. On your consultation appointment, we can go through the details of each option and pick what suits your treatment needs the best.

Do I need to take my wisdom teeth out?

Like any other dental treatment there are indications for wisdom teeth extractions. For example; pain, infection, dental crowding, deep decay, periodontal disease, etc. In the consultation appointment, we assess the reasons and provide you with our recommendation.

How many days do I need to take off school or work?

Most patients take the weekends off. We normally do our surgeries on Fridays, which allows for our patients to recover during the weekend.

How much do they cost?

We suggest our patients to come for a consultation appointment. In this appointment, we make sure the appropriate x-ray is taken. We will send the appropriate codes to your insurance company as pre determination so you will know the exact cost. Most dental insurance companies cover wisdom teeth extractions.
