Wisdom teeth are usually impacted and require removal. Our doctors are well versed in painless exodontia, including wisdom and other impacted teeth.

In addition, a spectrum of sedation, ranging from conscious sedation to general anesthesia is offered and depends on your level of anxiety.

Mild bleeding is expected for ~48 hours following oral surgery. If bleeding occurs, place a clean gauze pad, or a moist tea bag, directly over the bleeding site and apply biting pressure for 30 minutes. Avoid hot liquids, exercise, and lying flat for ~ 5 days. If bleeding persists, call the doctor immediately.

The area operated on will swell, reaching a maximum on day 3. This usually appears as puffy cheeks or lips. Swelling and discoloration around the eye may occur. Apply ice packs externally over the face over the operated area for the first 2 days. Keep your head elevated above your chest while sleeping for the first 5 days (use 2 or 3 pillows under your head when lying down).

For mild discomfort, take Advil/Motrin/Ibuprofen or Tylenol/Acetaminophen as instructed on the bottle. For severe pain, use the prescriptions given to you. If an antibiotic has been prescribed, finish your prescription regardless of your symptoms.

Do not rinse your mouth for the first day after surgery, or while there is bleeding. After the first day, use a warm salt-water rinse (1 tablespoon of salt in 1 cup of water) every four hours and after meals to flush out particles of food and debris that may lodge in the operated area. Vigorous spitting is prohibited; instead, lean over the sink and allow liquids to passively flow out of your mouth. It is expected that you brush your teeth gently, while avoiding the surgical areas, as of the first post-operative day.

Drink lots of clear fluids throughout the first 2 days after surgery. Restrict your diet to liquids and soft foods that are comfortable for you to eat. As the wounds heal, you will be able to advance the consistency of your diet; this usually takes 5 days.

If you have a high fever or uncontrollable pain, please contact the doctor directly. If you have difficulty breathing or swallowing, someone must accompany you to the emergency department of the nearest hospital or call 911. Your doctor must also be called.
