Wisdom tooth surgery is more comfortable than ever. Using IV sedation and local anesthetics make the experience memory-free and painless. An incision is made in the numb gums so they can be gently pushed aside. The wisdom tooth is exposed and extracted. Often the tooth is removed in one whole piece. Sometimes the tooth is removed in two pieces to limit risk to the underlying nerve or because smaller pieces are easier to remove. After the wisdom tooth is extracted, the gums are closed with stitches to aid in quick healing.

The surgery procedure itself is painless. With IV sedation you’ll be relaxed, comfortable, and unaware of the passage of time. In addition to sedation, local anesthetics numb the mouth to anything that would be painful. Most people experience some soreness during the healing period following surgery. Ice packs and prescription pain medication help limit any pain during the healing period. After the sore period, the gums will close and fully heal in three weeks.
