Wisdom teeth most commonly become an issue from the late teen years into your early 20s, though they can erupt at any time after that. Contrary to what most people believe, they don’t always have to be removed. When they do, however, count on us, your specialists here at Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Surgery Center. We will make sure that the process is comfortable for you, and alleviate the pain that wisdom teeth can be responsible for.
You will need our oral surgery in Canton when your wisdom teeth grow in crooked, only partially, and/or become impacted from bacteria. Swelling typically occurs. In cases of bad infections, you may need to be put on antibiotics before your teeth are removed. When it is time for our oral surgery in Canton, you will be given local anesthesia to make certain that you don’t suffer any undue pain. Generally speaking, you will feel pressure as the teeth are being separated from the gums and bone tissue, but you will be virtually free of pain. Of course, if you are nervous or fearful, we can provide expertly administered and monitored general anesthesia so that you can sleep through the entire procedure. The actual extraction begins with an incision made in the gums. Any bone that is in the way of the tooth will need to be taken out. Sometimes, your teeth will have to be removed in pieces. There is no need for worry, though. This is perfectly normal. Full recovery typically takes up to a few days, but with the help of over-the-counter pain relievers and an ice pack, you should find that you are not in any unmanageable discomfort.
Our oral surgery in Canton is essential when you are suffering with the pain of wisdom teeth. Contact our office and we will have you seen as soon as possible.
