Wisdom teeth often cause a number of problems including pain, and for this reason they are usually extracted via surgery. Extractions can range from a single tooth to removing all four wisdom teeth at once. You can choose to remain awake during the procedure by using a local anesthetic, or you may select to go under a general anesthetic and be sedated during the procedure.
After the surgery, you will need to rest and it is recommended that a friend or family member drives you home. If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain or irritation, it is most likely time to have them removed. Contact us today if you have any further questions or to schedule your appointment.
