Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth often develop between your late teens and mid-twenties. Because of lack of space in the mouth, a majority of wisdom teeth grow in at a crooked angle toward the front of the mouth and never emerge through the gums. When this occurs, these teeth tend to be problematic and painful.

Wisdom Teeth often develop between your late teens and mid-twenties. Because of lack of space in the mouth, a majority of wisdom teeth grow in at a crooked angle toward the front of the mouth and never emerge through the gums. When this occurs, these teeth tend to be problematic and painful.

To solve this problem, we surgically extract the teeth. Before the extraction, we take X-rays and examine your mouth thoroughly. Next we will make sure to properly anesthetize the area with either local anesthetic or IV sedation. Once you are numb, the procedure will occur. Depending on your specific case, the tooth may be able to be loosen and come out, or a small incision will be made on your gum and the Frankel Dentistry team will delicately remove the tooth.

After your wisdom teeth have been removed, a blood clot will form at the site. Do not jeopardize this area. Therefore, it is important that for the first 24 hours you make due with a liquid diet. Additionally, you should avoid potentially damaging actions like drinking through a straw, rinsing, spitting, consuming hot food, smoking, or drinking alcohol. If you experience bleeding or swelling, you may pack the area with gauze and use ice. After the initial 24 hours, you will want to rinse your mouth with salt water and begin brushing and flossing again. However, be sure to avoid that area. Within two weeks, you should feel much better.

Finally, it is important that if you have concerns or questions after the process Frankel Dentistry is a quick phone call away. After your procedure, Dr. Frankel will give you his personal cell phone number and will be available day or night to assist your needs.
