Wisdom tooth typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 24. They usually grow and become impacted because there is not enough room for them causing a variety of painful symptoms, including pain, swelling, infection, damage to adjacent teeth, and jaw stiffness. To prevent future problems, we highly recommend that teenagers visit our office for a dental exam to examine their wisdom teeth and decide on the appropriate course of treatment.
Wisdom tooth extraction at Dr. Andrea Diamond’s office is comfortable, relaxing and a safe procedure. We perform clinical examinations and radiographs prior to the removal of any teeth and depending on the nature of your case, wisdom tooth extractions are performed under local or general anesthesia.

Tips for a speedy recovery after Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Try using an ice pack on the outside of your cheek for the first 24 hours.
Relax after surgery. Physical activity may increase bleeding.
For the first few days eat soft foods, such as gelatin, pudding, or a thin soup.
Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times a day to reduce swelling and relieve pain.
Call Dr. Diamond or oral surgeon if you still have bleeding 24 hours after your surgery.
While your mouth is numb, be careful not to bite the inside of your cheek or lip, or your tongue.
Continue to brush your teeth and tongue carefully.
