Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth removal at Wicker Park Dental Studio is a routine procedure performed with care and precision, helping patients in Chicago maintain their oral health and avoid potential complications.

Why Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Often Necessary?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are often removed because:

  • They can become impacted, leading to pain and infection.
  • There's insufficient space in the mouth, causing crowding and alignment issues.
  • They are difficult to clean, increasing the risk of decay and gum disease.

What Can You Expect During the Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure?

The procedure involves:

  • Anesthesia or Sedation: To ensure comfort and alleviate anxiety.
  • Extraction: Gently removing the wisdom teeth, including any that are impacted.
  • Post-Procedure Care: Providing instructions and necessary prescriptions for recovery.

How to Prepare for Your Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Preparation includes:

  • Arranging for someone to drive you home post-procedure.
  • Following pre-operative fasting instructions if sedation is used.
  • Preparing a comfortable recovery area at home with necessary supplies.

What Are the Keys to a Smooth Recovery After Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Recovery tips include:

  • Adhering to dietary restrictions like soft foods.
  • Following oral hygiene instructions to prevent infection.
  • Applying ice to reduce swelling and taking prescribed medications as directed.
