Because wisdom teeth are often the last to develop, there might not be enough space in the jaw to accommodate them. If your wisdom teeth erupt without compromising any adjacent teeth or preventing you from maintaining proper oral hygiene, then extraction can be avoided.
However, if your wisdom teeth must in fact be removed, the extraction is performed as gently and carefully as possible.
Depending on your comfort level, there are three options for the procedure:
- You’re fully awake and aware of everything that’s happening to you. While you feel pressure, there is no pain during the operation.
Local Anesthesia & Oral Sedation
- In addition to a lack of pain, we provide you with an anti-anxiety pill that relaxes you and causes significant drowsiness.
Local Anesthesia & IV Sedation
- We administer the medications intravenously and you enter into a deeper sedated state. This procedure is performed by a certified dentist or dental specialist.
