Wisdom Teeth Removal
Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Have you been putting off their removal? If so, Dr. Horton can help. At some point in life, most everyone requires that his or her wisdom teeth be extracted as a measure of preventative dentistry. Several painful and lasting problems can occur due to the arrival of wisdom teeth. But with today’s dental technology, this procedure has been improved to maximize your comfort and speed your recovery time.
Before extracting your wisdom teeth, Dr. Horton will administer an anesthetic, based on your own needs and patient history. Then he will open up the gum tissue over the tooth, remove any bone covering the tooth, separate any connective tissue, and remove the tooth itself. If necessary, Dr. Horton will use stitches to close up the surgical wound.
In most cases, your recovery from wisdom tooth extraction will only last a few days. Sebring DDS Dr. Horton’s dental team will provide with you with detailed information on the do’s and don’ts of recovery, and you will be prescribed medication to manage any pain. Finally, you will have peace of mind knowing you’re no longer at risk for the many problems wisdom teeth can present!
While this routine procedure has a frightful reputation, there’s no need to be scared. Dr. Horton uses advanced technology and modern techniques to ensure a fast and painless process for root canals.
