Wisdom tooth extraction is a standard procedure in dental offices. The difference lies in how gentle the dentist is and how they maximize their tools for the patient’s maximum comfort. Our seasoned dentists have conducted various wisdom tooth extractions over the years. We know how to make you feel at ease.
The most important thing is walking you through the entire process. Here’s what you can expect from a typical extraction session with our Cary dentists:
- The patient is given local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth that will be extracted
- We might administer conscious sedation for patients who want to feel more relaxed
- The dentist carefully removes the wisdom tooth, paying attention to your comfort level
The length of the procedure depends on how problematic your wisdom tooth is. Partially erupted wisdom teeth are fairly easy to extract. We have to be more careful with impacted teeth and teeth that are growing sideways.
