Wisdom Teeth Surgery: Why Consider It?

Dentist Blog

When you get your wisdom teeth removed, it's wise to consider wisdom teeth surgery over other types of removal efforts. Wisdom teeth removal surgery involves general anesthesia that will make the experience less memorable and uncomfortable for you. Even if you are alert for your procedure, wisdom teeth removal can still be considered surgery because of what goes into the extraction process.

You should only have wisdom teeth removal surgery done by a specialist in oral surgeon work and your dentist can refer you to a specialist if you have to have intensive work done on your teeth. Here are reasons to consider wisdom teeth surgery if you need multiple teeth taken out.

You get the procedure done faster

Wisdom teeth surgery can be completed faster than traditional wisdom teeth extractions can because your teeth are removed while you are under general anesthesia. There is no wait time to see if you are comfortable for the procedure because you are comfortably asleep and unconscious during the wisdom teeth removal surgery, allowing you to get your wisdom teeth taken out in nearly no time at all.

Consider wisdom teeth surgery if you need multiple teeth taken out, such as all four of your wisdom teeth or the ones that are very impacted.

You get the procedure done with less stress and anxiety

Getting your wisdom teeth taken out can feel like a daunting experience and can be fearsome for those who are uncomfortable going to the dentist or for those who have had a negative experience at the dentist before. You can get rid of a lot of that stress, fear, and anxiety by having wisdom teeth removal surgery done. This surgery is performed while you are put under or under heavy medical intervention to allow you to have ideal pain management while you are having an intensive surgery done.

Wisdom teeth removal surgery should not be taken lightly and you should only have the surgery done if you have heavily impacted teeth or other dental woes related to your wisdom teeth. If you do not do well under general anesthesia, then your dentist may recommend other forms of dental treatment for you to get your wisdom teeth out, such as oral sedation and other methods of care. With wisdom teeth surgery, you can get your teeth removed quickly and effectively; call your dentist to schedule an appointment and see if you are a candidate for wisdom teeth surgery.

Getting Your Toddler to the Dentist Once and For All

Toddlers should see a dentist for the first time by the age of twelve months or by the time their first tooth comes in. But if you are a parent with toddlers anything like mine, the prospect of going to the dentist (let alone anywhere!) can be pretty intimidating. My kids were a handful growing up. They had tantrums any time we would have to sit in a waiting room, and they refused to get in the dentist's chair during their first few visits. So, I had to employ a professional to help me make the transition to finally getting them in that dental chair without all the screaming and crying. I know I'm not the only parent in this situation, so I decided to share the information I've learned with others who can use a little help. You can find all my advice right here on these pages!
