Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Frisco, TX
Keeping Your Smile Healthy
During the late teenage and early adult years, the third molars (commonly called wisdom teeth) can start coming in. Although our ancestors needed these extra teeth, many people nowadays don’t. In fact, these teeth can cause many problems, including pushing the other teeth out of alignment, erupting at an angle, or causing an infection. In these cases, Dr. Parmar will likely recommend extracting the wisdom teeth. We’ll take the time to explain the situation and honestly review the treatment options so that you feel confident moving forward.

After wisdom teeth are extracted, it is important to properly care for the site. Keep gauze in place until the bleeding stops, which should be within a couple of hours. Switch out the gauze as it becomes soaked, and apply a cold compress to your face to manage the swelling. Make sure that you allow a blood clot to form on the surgical site. This protects the vulnerable tissue underneath from bacteria. For a few days, you should eat softer foods and slowly build back up to your normal diet. Avoid using a straw because the clot can easily become dislodged with the sucking motion, likely leading to an infection called dry socket. If you follow these instructions, you should heal well and recover as quickly as possible.
