Emergency Wisdom Teeth Removal Los Angeles
Some people can happily coexist with their wisdom teeth. For others, dental specialists often recommend removal, especially when your wisdom teeth cause problems in your mouth. These issues can include excruciating pain and perhaps even prompt you to seek help from our expert in emergency wisdom teeth removal in Los Angeles. Emergency wisdom teeth removal is not all that different from ordinary wisdom teeth removal, a common procedure performed on millions of individuals each year.
If you experience pain and call our emergency clinic, our Los Angeles emergency wisdom teeth removal expert will first administer an anesthetic to your teeth and the surrounding area. This numbs the teeth so they can be extracted painlessly. Depending on the amount of teeth being removed at once, a general anesthetic may be applied, causing you to sleep during the procedure.
Los Angeles Emergency Wisdom Teeth Removal
While you are under anesthesia, our expert in emergency wisdom teeth removal in Los Angeles removes any bone covering your wisdom teeth. After disconnecting any tissue between the tooth and bone, our expert removes the tooth. Sometimes our dentist segments the tooth into pieces for smoother extraction. Following this procedure, you may need stitches to help the gums around the missing teeth heal. Most stiches placed in the mouth will dissolve in a few days, though some may require later in-office removal.
Following emergency wisdom teeth removal, our Los Angeles emergency wisdom teeth removal expert will recommend you take it easy for the few days following your procedure. Up to several hours beyond wisdom teeth removal, you may experience constant bleeding. Square-shaped cotton gauze pads can be folded and placed between upper and lower teeth arcs to soak up the blood. Biting down and applying slight pressure will help stop the bleeding sooner. Holding an ice pack to the side of your mouth can help alleviate jaw pain. Be sure to eat soft foods while you recover, and slowly work in more solid foods as you heal. Primarily, relaxation is key to recovering from emergency wisdom teeth removal and deterring further pain and infection.
