Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Hialeah, FL

There are various reasons behind the extraction of wisdom teeth, primarily because as modern individuals, we no longer require them for immediate use. While occasionally a wisdom tooth may erupt without causing harm, oftentimes removal is necessary for the following reasons:


  • Impaction: When the jaw lacks sufficient space for the tooth to emerge properly, leading to it being unable to break through the gums.
  • Partial Emergence: Sometimes, the tooth only partially emerges from the gums, leaving it vulnerable to infections due to improper sealing with the gums, posing risks to the patient’s health.
  • Angled Growth: Wisdom teeth can grow in at awkward angles, potentially causing discomfort or damaging neighboring teeth.

The Procedure of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Simple extractions can be carried out in a dental office by a dentist. However, if the tooth is impacted or requires surgical intervention, it will necessitate referral to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.


Recovery after Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Immediately post-procedure, the patient will be advised to apply pressure on the extraction site with gauze to facilitate blood clot formation. During the subsequent days, it’s crucial to avoid activities that may disrupt the clot formation, promoting proper healing. These include:

  • Refraining from smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Avoiding the use of straws
  • Abstaining from hard foods or candies
  • Minimizing excessive chewing
  • Not picking at the sore area

A follow-up appointment will be scheduled by the doctor to monitor the healing progress and ensure proper recovery.
