Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Dentist in El Cajon, CA
What is the procedure like?
When a dentist performs a wisdom tooth extraction, he/she can choose from several different types of anesthesia. It is possible to use a local anesthetic, which only affects the affected area, an IV which completely suppresses consciousness during the procedure, or a general anesthetic that is inhaled through the nose and also renders the patient unconscious. Normally, during oral surgery, the dentist will give instructions that you must follow, which may include avoiding food and drink. You may also need to take prescriptions or prescription drugs, and the procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Patients may be severely sedated and have pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and other side effects.
Patients should prepare for transport to and from the appointment and drive home safely after the removal of the wisdom tooth. Patients should be driven home safely to have wisdom teeth removed and prepared for a transport appointment.
Wisdom teeth extraction differs from typical extractions in that it is more invasive and better than a normal extraction. Wisdom teeth that are located in the gums or embedded in the jawbone usually require more extensive treatment, usually under an IV anesthetic. Bones and tissues of the wisdom tooth must be removed while the patient is sedated so that the tooth can be removed and removed effectively. Dr. Dalia Jamma will ensure the highest level of patient comfort during the procedure.
Although it has become a common preventative practice, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. When deciding whether to remove a wisdom tooth, many factors must be taken into account, such as the age of the patient, the age at which the teeth are formed, and the age and condition of the teeth.
