As the wisdom teeth are the last four teeth to form in the mouth, they often present a problem when there is inadequate space for them to grow in properly. In these cases, they may become trapped in the jawbone or grow in at a troublesome angle, causing a host of complications.
The longer wisdom teeth are allowed to grow in the mouth, the greater the chance of complications – including infection, pain and damage to the surrounding teeth. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth that are trapped in the jawbone may cause decay and gum disease if left untreated for a prolonged period of time. For these reasons, Dr. Mizrahi advises her patients to seek early wisdom teeth removal to reduce their risk and ensure a swift recovery.
Although it is a very common procedure, wisdom teeth removal is still a significant surgery. As such, it requires the skill of a leading oral and maxillofacial surgeon with experience safely resolving complex wisdom teeth cases. With years of experience and countless successful procedures, Dr. Mizrahi is widely recognized for delivering among the best wisdom teeth removal Los Angeles has to offer. You are always more than welcome to call her and ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
An Overview of wisdom teeth removal
Guided by her extensive training and exceptional technical skill, Dr. Mizrahi in Beverly Hills has provided countless patients with safe, effective and comfortable wisdom teeth removal.
Depending on the expected complexity of the surgery, Dr. Mizrahi will use one of the following anesthesia options to ensure a painless procedure:
- Local anesthesia. After numbing the gums, Dr. Mizrahi will inject local anesthesia near the site of the extractions. Although the patient will be awake during the procedure, they will not feel any pain.
- Sedation anesthesia. In many cases, Dr. Mizrahi will administer intravenous sedation anesthesia in conjunction with local anesthesia. This approach ensures the patient doesn’t experience any pain and results in a very limited memory of the procedure.
- General anesthesia. In very rare and complex cases, Dr. Mizrahi may administer general anesthesia, causing the patient to temporarily lose consciousness. With this approach, the patient will have no memory of the extractions after the surgery.
Once the anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Mizrahi will begin the procedure by making a precise incision in the gum tissue to expose the wisdom tooth and underlying bone. She will then remove any bone covering the tooth and separate the connecting tissue. From there, Dr. Mizrahi in Los Angeles will perform the wisdom tooth extraction , either removing the entire tooth at once or cutting it into smaller pieces.
Once the wisdom teeth have been removed, Dr. Mizrahi will clean the site of debris, close the incisions with stiches and insert gauze to stop the bleeding and promote the formation of a healing blood clot.
An Overview of Wisdom Teeth Recovery
Recovery after wisdom teeth removal varies and is largely dependent on the complexity of the procedure. However, provided the patient adheres to Dr. Mizrahi’s post-operative guidelines, most recovery periods will only last a few days.
Immediately following the procedure, some temporary pain and swelling is to be expected and will be proportional to the surgery involved. For example, a simple wisdom tooth extraction will yield less pain and swelling than the complex removal of impacted wisdom teeth. Committed to your safety and comfort, Dr. Mizrahi will prescribe medication to help you manage the pain, and instruct you to ice the area to reduce swelling. To ensure proper healing, you will be advised to avoid rinsing the mouth vigorously, using straws, drinking alcohol and brushing the teeth next to the extraction site during the initial recovery period.
In addition to these general guidelines, Dr. Mizrahi in Beverly Hills will advise on your individualized post-operative care during your initial consultation.Learn more
