Wisdom Teeth Removal in Fredericksburg

Surgical procedure to recovery

Wisdom tooth removal is sometimes required due to the impacted teeth causing you pain, swelling, or a bad taste in your mouth.

In these cases, we offer comfortable wisdom tooth extraction for teenagers and adults. If you or a family member is experiencing symptoms related to painful or impacted wisdom teeth, we can guide you through the extraction process and your sedation options.

In-house dental sedation

From the surgical procedure to recovery, we provide support at every stage. We offer in-house dental sedation for all oral surgeries. With sedation, you’ll experience a more relaxed state and may not remember much, if anything, about the actual treatment.

Post extraction recovery

Most patients experience minor soreness for a few days after wisdom teeth removal. We recommend following all medication instructions and taking a few days off work or school. Applying a cold compress to each side of your mouth for up to 20 minutes at a time within the first 24 hours can help with inflammation. You can also rinse with warm salt water to reduce swelling or facilitate food removal. While it’s okay to brush your teeth, avoid brushing around the extraction sites during the first week.

Since most wisdom tooth extractions involve sedation, you will need to bring a friend or family member to drive you home after the appointment.

Opt for soft, easy-to-eat foods like mashed potatoes, yogurt, or smoothies to aid in healing without irritating the surgical sites.
