In most cases, wisdom teeth are removed under local anesthesia, laughing gas, or general anesthesia to maximize patient comfort. We offer various types of anesthesia and will work with you to select the best option for your individual case. Our oral surgeons will discuss these options with you prior to the procedure. Our services are provided in an environment of optimal safety, with up-to-date equipment operated by a staff that is experienced in anesthesia techniques.
Once your wisdom teeth are removed, the gum is sutured and gauze will be placed in your mouth to help control bleeding. You’ll remain in the office under the supervision of our staff until you are ready to be taken home. We’ll provide you with a post-operative kit including instructions for care once you are home, a prescription for pain medication and antibiotics, and a return appointment for the following week to have your sutures removed.
