How does the removal process work?
Dental Care of Morrisville will assess your wisdom teeth situation and determine the best way to accomplish the wisdom teeth removal process. Depending on the stage of your wisdom teeth development, your wisdom teeth will either be removed in pieces or as one whole tooth.
If the dentist determines that your wisdom teeth need extraction, the process is very simple and only requires you to take a few hours out of your day for the removal surgery and for you to rest while the anesthesia wears off.
Once the teeth are extracted, you will need to be very careful on the type of food you eat for a few days. If possible, try to eat soft food only. Also, it is recommended not to brush for at least a day after the surgery. Total recovery time is about 3-4 days to let the swelling go down and the extraction site to start the healing process.
