Why Should Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted? 

Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are the final teeth to develop and erupt in the mouth, usually during the teen years or early twenties. Typically, wisdom teeth are removed because the jaw cannot accommodate more than 28 teeth rather than 32 if the patient has all 4 wisdom teeth. Allowing the wisdom teeth to remain in place can cause a variety of oral and dental health problems, including overcrowding, bone and gum infections, cyst development, and even tumors around infected teeth. 

Fortunately, wisdom teeth extraction is straightforward for a trained oral-maxillofacial surgeon, and Johnson Oral Facial Surgery is prepared to help you through either a simple or complex extraction process, including the removal of multiple impacted wisdom teeth. 

Wisdom Teeth Removal Process

The process of getting your wisdom teeth removed from our oral surgeon in Dallas typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: You will first meet with the oral surgeon to discuss the procedure and any concerns you may have. They will examine your mouth and take X-rays to assess the positioning of your wisdom teeth.
  • Preparation: Prior to the procedure, the surgeon will give you instructions on what to eat or drink and what medications to take. You will also receive anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.
  • Extraction: The surgeon will then make an incision in your gums and remove the wisdom teeth. If necessary, the surgeon may need to break the teeth into smaller pieces to facilitate their removal.
  • Closure: Once the teeth are removed, the surgeon will stitch the incision closed and place gauze over the extraction site to help control bleeding.
  • Recovery: You will be monitored by our team for a period of time following the procedure. You will be given post-operative instructions on how to care for the extraction site and manage any discomfort or swelling.
  • Follow-up: You will typically have a follow-up appointment with the surgeon to ensure that the extraction site is healing properly and to address any concerns you may have.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Recovery time varies from person to person, but it generally takes about a week to 10 days. Initially, you may experience swelling, bruising, and difficulty opening your mouth. These symptoms should gradually improve. During recovery it is important to eat soft foods, avoid straws, and maintain good oral hygiene to promote healing.

Overall, getting your wisdom teeth removed from our Dallas oral surgeon involves a relatively straightforward procedure. By following the surgeon's instructions and working closely with their team, you can ensure a successful and comfortable recovery.

What Causes Dry Sockets? 

Dry sockets, known as alveolar osteitis, occur when the blood clot that forms after a tooth extraction becomes dislodged or dissolves prematurely, exposing the underlying nerves and bone to air, food, and fluids. This exposure can lead to intense pain and discomfort. Various factors contribute to the development of dry sockets, including smoking, poor oral hygiene, traumatic extractions, and the use of oral contraceptives. Additionally, underlying infections, inadequate blood supply to the extraction site, and certain medical conditions can increase the risk of developing dry sockets following wisdom tooth removal.

How to Prevent Dry Sockets? 

To prevent dry sockets after wisdom tooth removal, follow these steps:

  • Avoid smoking and using straws.
  • Practice gentle oral hygiene, being careful around the extraction site.
  • Follow post-operative instructions provided by our Dallas dentist, including any recommended pain management and dietary guidelines. 

How to Treat Dry Sockets

At Johnson Oral Facial Surgery, we prioritize patient comfort and well-being, especially in the event of complications like dry sockets following wisdom tooth removal. Our experienced team employs gentle and effective techniques to alleviate discomfort associated with dry sockets, including thorough cleaning of the affected area and application of medicated dressings. With compassionate care and prompt intervention, we ensure swift relief and promote optimal healing for our patients.

As a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Chris Johnson is the among most qualified practitioner to seek out when you need wisdom teeth extraction in Dallas.
