The Process of Extracting a Wisdom Tooth
The process will start with a consultation, which involves an examination from our expert Dr. Omid Barkhordar and necessary x-rays to determine the placement of your wisdom teeth. Dr. Barkhordar will assess your specific needs in order to develop a customized treatment plan that will guarantee your comfort and reduce your recovery time.
On your appointment day, we will first properly administer your preferred method of sedation. This will provide you with a painless and comfortable wisdom tooth extraction procedure. Dr. Barkhordar will next carefully and skillfully create an incision in your gum in order to remove the tissue connecting the wisdom tooth to the bone. He will then extract the tooth itself. We will apply self-dissolving sutures and gauze in order to close off the extraction site from bacteria and debris, and to decrease bleeding. At the conclusion of your appointment, we'll give you any necessary medication prescriptions and specific care instructions to make sure your recovery is quick and comfortable.
