Wisdom teeth, or “third molars,” generally erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. For most patients, wisdom teeth will not erupt properly and will need extraction. Commonly, we remove wisdom teeth because they are impacted and causing pain, infection, or are at risk for damaging adjacent teeth. While a surgical procedure, wisdom teeth extractions are safe and uncomplicated in the hands of an expert. Our oral surgeon has received extensive training specifically in wisdom teeth extractions, is certified to administer IV sedation, and is
experienced in handling complex cases and dental emergencies. The scope of his education and training is focused solely on dental surgical procedures, including wisdom teeth extractions. Our wisdom teeth appointments in Miami Beach, FL always put your comfort and safety first and we are here to answer all your questions about the wisdom teeth extractions process and recovery. Knowing what to expect during every step of your treatment can help you and your loved ones feel informed and confident when preparing for and attending your appointment.
Wisdom teeth extractions are the first major surgery that many of our patients undergo, and we are considerate of their concerns and needs. To ensure your comfort during your appointment, we provide multiple levels of sedation as well as a relaxing and calming environment. We perform wisdom teeth extractions in the comfort of our Miami Beach, FL office and you will be able to return home the day of surgery. At your appointment, we use local anesthetic to numb the treatment site, then administer sedation to block sensations of pain and help you relax. During your procedure, our oral surgeon will skillfully remove your wisdom teeth, then suture the area. It is normal to experience some bleeding, pain, and swelling after your appointment, but many patients find they can return to normal activities within a few days and are completely healed about six weeks after surgery!
