What to expect for wisdom teeth removal
Even the thought of wisdom teeth removal can bring on anxiety for some people and we are aware of these reactions and are sensitive to your emotional well-being and concerns.
In order to feel more comfortable about your wisdom teeth options, we believe it’s imperative to understand what’s involved. Before any recommendations can be made you or any dental work carried out, you will need a dental appointment with a wisdom teeth dentist. Hawthorn East Dental has a highly experienced wisdom teeth dentist who can assess your situation and provide you with the right advice.
The process for wisdom teeth removal generally requires two dental visits with us and then a post-op consultation. It is also recommended you book in for a regular check-up to ensure your oral health is optimal and you can continue to smile openly and with confidence.
As part of your consultation, your oral health will be assessed and scans taken so we can get a better idea of how many wisdom teeth you have, how many are erupting and what your wisdom teeth are behaving. We can then advise more about the procedure which will involve either local anesthetic or general anesthetic. This is also the best time to let us know about any other health issues you have.
As with any surgery, there are risks and we can discuss this with you in your initial appointment with our wisdom teeth dentist. This is the best time to ask any questions and our friendly dental team and wisdom teeth dentist at Hawthorn East Dental will be glad to assist. We want you to come in to your next appointment feeling confident and informed.
After your individual assessment, we can advise you on exactly what is required. Remember, we are a highly qualified and experienced team and wisdom teeth extraction is a procedure we have provided for many clients.
Recovery from wisdom teeth removal is relatively quick provided you take care of yourself and we will provide post-op care guidance to ensure you go home feeling sure about what to do and what not to do to ensure fast healing. You can expect 3 to 4 days to fully recover.
If you experience symptoms such as high fever, bleeding that won’t stop, you have difficulty swallowing or breathing or swelling that doesn’t subside after 3 days, then contact us.
