Preparing for wisdom tooth extraction

Wisdom tooth extraction in Miami is performed at Advanced Family Dentistry. Our oral surgeon will prepare you for the extraction by applying a local anesthetic. You may also receive a sedation to make you more comfortable throughout the procedure.

While preparing for the procedure, always feel free to ask our dentists questions that you think may be of help to you. We are always ready to answer you.

Extraction of the wisdom tooth is usually done as an outpatient procedure. This means that you can go back to your home on the same day. Our dentists will instruct you on what to do prior to and on the day of the surgery.

During the procedure…

The dentist at Advanced Family Dental will give any of three types of sedation – local anesthesia, sedation anesthesia, or general anesthesia.

The following will take place during the extraction:

  • The dentist will expose the affected tooth and bone by making an incision in your gum.
  • After the incision is made, he or she will remove the bone that obstructs the root of the affected tooth.
  • The tooth is then divided into sections (if the dentist prefers to remove it in pieces)
  • The tooth is removed
  • The dentist then cleans the site of extraction, removing any debris that may have been left behind.
  • A gauze is placed over the site of extraction to control the bleeding and promote the formation of a blood clot.

At Advanced Family Dental, we take great care to ensure that you have the best dental health possible. Please reach out to us without delay if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
