Wisdom Tooth Extraction in San Antonio

Your Wisdom teeth include the four permanent adult teeth at the back top and bottom corners of your mouth. Wisdom tooth extraction is required if a wisdom tooth doesn’t have enough space to grow into. If this issue is not taken care of, it can result in pain, infection, or other dental problems. Even if you don’t have a current problem, we recommend wisdom tooth extraction in order to prevent potential future problems. More often than not wisdom teeth coming in can cause problems, damaging other teeth or pushing teeth out of alignment. We are experts in Sedation Dentistry and strive to put your needs first and make you as comfortable as possible at Rolling Oaks Dental. Our in-house Oral Surgeon Dr. Nitin Raju is proud to offer the best in Oral Surgery practices and techniques.

About The Procedure

Wisdom tooth extraction procedures are performed in our office. We use local anesthetic to numb the area. In addition, your surgeon may suggestion sedation in order for you to be more comfortable during the procedure. This type of oral surgery almost always allows you to go home the same day, often called an outpatient procedure. We will give you detailed instructions that outline what to do before the surgery and the day of your scheduled surgery. This includes making arrangements for someone to drive you home after the procedure and making sure to avoid eating or drinking for several hours before the surgery. Our oral surgeon will explain three types of anesthesia that are typically used in this procedure: local anesthesia, sedation anesthesia, and general anesthesia. You will be able to discuss with our oral surgeon which option might be right for you during this process. We will provide all the information you need to have a smooth procedure and a quick recovery! Your dentist will give you clear directions to follow as you heal from the surgery to make it as painless as possible.
