Wisdom Teeth Extractions
At Implant & Periodontic Specialists, we provide premier services for patients that need wisdom teeth removed. Our Bellevue periodontists strongly recommend removing wisdom teeth sooner rather than later. By following this recommendation, you can ensure that teeth can be removed easier and safer, causing minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.
Here are some things to remember when having wisdom teeth removed:
Problems with wisdom teeth are a common occurrence
Diagnosing is done with an x-ray
Removing them sooner is better
Your case will be different than other patients’ cases
Impacted teeth can leave a lot of damage and infection
Healing times vary greatly
Our dedicated team is here for you every step of the way. Whether you need us to hold your hand or provide you with one of our sedation options, we’re happy to help.
We use digital x-rays to determine if a tooth extraction is necessary. Every case is unique so our doctors will take time to explain their diagnosis.
If an extraction is needed then we’ll gently prepare your tooth by numbing the area, keeping it clean, and preparing it for extraction.
When you are ready, our skilled dentist exposes the tooth and rocks it away from the gums. We immediately tend to the vacated area to keep it clean and healthy.
Dr. Raval will provide you with instructions to keep the area clean and present a series of replacement options including dental implants if applicable.
The doctor made sure that I was comfortable before she started. I had no pain during the extraction. I was given written instructions for the next 24-72 hours. That was very helpful when I got home.
