1. Pre-Surgery – before your extraction you will visit your oral surgeon to speak to them about the process ahead and options regarding surgery
2. Plan of action – once you have agreed a plan of action for your procedure you will then have x-rays on the teeth that are being removed
3. Payment plan – For those unable to pay all fees upfront Wisdom Dental can provide a payment plan to help stager the costs of the extraction.
4. Choice of sleep dentistry – Yourself and the oral surgeon will decide which method is best for extraction, depending on the level that your wisdom teeth are erupted, the pain you are experiencing, the anxiety you may have towards dentistry and how deep they are into the gum and jaw.
5. The surgery – prior to the surgery you will discuss in depth what will happen and how to look after yourself post surgery including what to eat and how to bathe the teeth
6. Arrange a person to collect you – The surgery can leave people feeling woozy and you will be unable to drive after the surgery, it is therefore best to arrange for someone to drop you off and collect you. This person should also be in any meeting you may have with your dentist that discusses medication and after care
7. Rest and warmth – This is incredibly important for a speedy recovery time as well as applying a warm towel to your face to help reduce swelling.
8. Reduce discomfort – There are many ways to reduce discomfort. Avoiding alcohol and smoking is recommended along with maintaining oral hygiene, taking pain killers and a soft diet.
