Wisdom Teeth Removal
Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Have you been putting off their removal? If so, Dr. Bradley can help. At some point in your life, most everyone requires the extraction of their wisdom teeth as a measure of preventative dentistry. A number of painful and lasting problems can occur due to the arrival of wisdom teeth. However, with today’s dental technology, this procedure has been improved to maximize your comfort and to speed along your recovery time.
Before extracting your wisdom teeth, Dr. Bradley will administer a local or general anesthetic, based on your own needs and on your patient history. She will then open up the gum tissue over the tooth, removing any bone covering the tooth. Next, she will separate any connective tissue, and will remove the tooth itself. If necessary, Dr. Bradley will use stitches to close up the surgical wound.
In most cases, your recovery from wisdom tooth extraction will only last a few days. Dr. Bradley and her team will provide you with detailed information on the do’s and don’ts of recovery, and you will be prescribed medication to manage any pain. Finally, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re no longer at risk for the many problems wisdom teeth can present!
