Let Dr. Richard Adams, an oral surgeon in Fayetteville, relieve your wisdom tooth discomfort.
FAYETTEVILLE, NC, December 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- If you are in your late teens or early 20s, you may have noticed another set of teeth emerging behind your second molars. These four teeth are known as wisdom teeth. While it isn't always necessary to have them removed, issues such as overcrowding can cause a dentist to recommend oral surgery. If wisdom teeth are causing you pain and swelling, you may have impacted wisdom teeth, which will need to be removed. Dr. Richard Adams, oral surgeon in Fayetteville, is here to make your wisdom teeth extraction easy and painless.
"It's very common for patients in their late teens to begin noticing their wisdom teeth coming in. At this point, I will continue to monitor their progress with the use of x-ray and routine checkups to make sure that there is nothing unusual," says Dr. Adams, Fayetteville oral surgeon. " If I notice overcrowding, or the patient is experiencing significant pain and swelling, we will most certainly recommend that the wisdom teeth be removed. We want our patients to avoid future dental complications."
Wisdom teeth extraction is a simple procedure where the patient is put under anesthesia. The anesthesia varies by patient, but can range from just a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth to general anesthesia, in which the patient is completely asleep.
"The most important part of the procedure is making sure our patients are comfortable and pain-free," says Dr. Adams, oral surgeon in Fayetteville. "The type of anesthesia will depend on whether the patient is having the majority of their wisdom teeth out or just one."
Dr. Richard Adams will open up the gum tissue to remove the wisdom tooth. Once the tooth is extracted, the gum tissue is stitched back together. The stitches will usually dissolve over time; however, some stitches will need to be removed by the dentist.
"The procedure is really very simple and easy, and the recovery period is short," says Dr. Adams, Fayetteville oral surgeon. "For most patients, recovery is only a couple of days. After surgery, we recommend that the patient use ice packs to minimizing swelling, only eat soft foods, and limit physical activity."
