When searching for an excellent family dentist in Santa Ana and surrounding areas, you won’t have to look far. Crystal Dental is a comprehensive, affordable dentistry practice offering all ranges of family dentistry, from adult dentistry to dentistry for children. One of our most popular procedures is wisdom teeth extraction.
These days, many people find their wisdom teeth to be distracting, and sometimes even painful. If wisdom teeth are too crowded and left in a patient’s mouth for too long, they can cause a large amount of damage to neighboring teeth. Wisdom teeth usually appear in people between the ages of 17 and 25. That means that your favorite pediatric dentist can be rather helpful in prepping you and your children for this appointment.
After you have been cleared for wisdom teeth extraction and on into the procedure, the doctor may choose to use one of three types of anesthesia before the extraction. Your dentist will choose from sedation anesthesia, local anesthesia, or general anesthesia.
After anesthesia, the dentist will make an incision, remove bones blocking access to the tooth, extract the tooth, clean the site of the tooth (including any debris), stitch the wound, and place gauze over the extraction site to control bleeding.
Following the procedure, one of our experienced dentist, will provide you with information about how to heal properly. This may involve resting for several days, drinking lots of water, eating soft foods, managing pain with either a prescription or over-the-counter pain medication, replacing gauze often, cleaning your mouth often (usually with a salt-water solution), and not using tobacco for at least 24 hours after the procedure. You can expect some bleeding, swelling, and bruising for several days, and you may need to have your stitches removed if they do not dissolve naturally.
