What to Expect with Tooth Extractions
Dr. Nail may perform either a simple or surgical tooth extraction to perform the wisdom teeth removal procedure successfully. We usually perform this procedure under local anesthesia and numb the area well enough to eliminate any pain or discomfort. We will provide specific post-op instructions to ensure proper healing after the tooth has been removed from its socket.
Healing After The Wisdom Teeth Procedure
Complete healing after a wisdom teeth removal procedure
does not occur for several weeks or even a few months after the teeth have been removed. Most patients feel more comfortable and can eat and drink their favorite foods without any problems approximately two weeks after their procedure. You will be advised to limit your diet to soft foods and avoid drinking through a straw for several days after a tooth extraction to support a healthy recovery.
