Wisdom Teeth Removal
Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Have you been putting off their removal? If so, Dr. LoVerdi and the team at LoVerdi Dental can help. At some point in life, most everyone requires that their wisdom teeth be extracted as a measure of preventive dentistry. A number of painful and lasting problems can occur due to the arrival of wisdom teeth. But, 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. LoVerdi will administer a local or general anesthetic, based on your own needs and on your patient history. Then, he will open-up the gum tissue over the tooth and will remove any bone covering the tooth. Next, he will separate any connective tissue and will then remove the tooth itself. If necessary, Dr. LoVerdi will use stitches to close-up the surgical wound.
In most cases, your recovery from wisdom tooth extraction will only last a few days. Your LoVerdi Dental team will provide with 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 will have peace of mind knowing that you are no longer at risk for the many problems wisdom teeth can present.
For those who suffer from extreme anxiety, our office offers sedation dentistry as a safe and reliable way for you to feel relaxed.
