If you’re an adult in New Orleans, wisdom teeth removal might not be at the top of your to-do list. However, impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, lead to infection or gum disease, trigger tooth decay or damage surrounding teeth or bone structures. The best thing to do when experiencing wisdom tooth pain is to call a competent dentist and schedule a simple outpatient operation procedure — luckily, Southern Dental Care has the experience and the know-how to make the entire process as quick and easy as possible.
We will sit down with you at a consultation and decide on every aspect of the procedure, down to the color that you want your bib to be! Typically we offer three different types of anesthesia: local, which is simply an injection near the site of each tooth extraction; sedation, which is an IV sedative that suppresses your consciousness through the procedure; or general, which causes you to lose consciousness entirely and allows patients to have no memory of the procedure. Your dentist and you will decide together which of these options is best for you!
We strive to simplify the surgery as much as we possibly can, and will explain each aspect of it to you in detail if you so desire. Our dentists simply make incisions in the gum, extract pieces of bone and the molar in question, clean the site and gently stitch the gum up so that it can make a full recovery. We are highly trained in wisdom teeth matters and have years of experience performing extractions on all different types of people — with all different types of mouths!
Although patients are not expected to experience any side effects or negative symptoms besides swelling, bruising and moderate pain, our office is set up to take your calls and emails at all times. Our doctors and assistants are fully prepared to book you for an emergency meeting or recommend quick fixes over the phone. As dentists, we are experts in all things mouth-related, and we’ll be happy to help you after the procedure in any way we can. Far from yanking your teeth and booting you out of the office, we believe in a familial relationship with our clients and promise to serve you in any way we can.
Anyone in the market for New Orleans wisdom teeth removal owes it to themselves to pay a visit to Southern Dental for a friendly meeting and consultation. Our dentists and staff are sure to make a wonderful impression on you as they prepare you for the excitement of a life free of wisdom tooth pain!
