This is by far one of the best and most professional dentists office I've ever been to... The procedure was quick, easy, and painless. I was in and out of the office in about 1 hour for 3 wisdom teeth extractions. Great service, exceptional staff, I definitely recommend this office.

Wisdom Tooth Removal What To Expect During Your Procedure

The first step is to contact our Orland Park practice and request your wisdom tooth removal consultation. Our oral surgeon will examine your teeth to confirm the cause of your symptoms and suggest wisdom tooth extraction if necessary. 
"Our Orland Park practice offers sedation for patients who feel anxious about wisdom tooth removal."

Day of Procedure

"Our Orland Park practice offers sedation for patients who feel anxious about wisdom tooth removal."

X-rays

Scans and x-rays are taken to determine the exact location of the problematic teeth. These also help your oral surgeon identify sinus and nerve placement.

Anesthesia

To begin, local anesthesia is administered to numb the affected areas. Any sedative medications are delivered at this point as well.

Access

If the teeth are impacted, your oral surgeon creates a small incision in the gums to carefully access the bone.

Tooth Removal

Using specialized dental instruments, your dentist loosens the tooth and lifts it from the socket. If necessary, the tooth may be divided into sections for easier extraction.

Cleaning the Socket

Once the tooth has been removed, the socket is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This ensures that all residual infection is eliminated.

Closing the Incisions

Finally, the gum tissue is repositioned and the incisions are closed with surgical sutures. A gauze pack is placed over the site to control bleeding and help boost blood clot formation.

During the Procedure

Excess gum tissue may need to be removed to allow access to the wisdom tooth. Specialized tools allow the dentist to reach the tooth. If the wisdom tooth erupts at an angle, it can damage surrounding teeth & cause cascading misalignment.

Anxious To Receive Treatment? We Offer Three Forms of Sedation

Our Orland Park, IL, dentists offer sedation options during wisdom teeth removal for optimal comfort. Patients can choose from nitrous oxide, oral sedatives, or IV sedation. We also work alongside a board-certified anesthesiologist when necessary. Dental visits do not have to be stressful. Ask your doctor which option is right for you.

Preventing Dry Sockets How To Avoid This Painful Side Effect

/

A dry socket occurs when the blood clot covering the treatment area is either dislodged or dissolves too soon, exposing the underlying bone and nerves. This exposure causes intense pain for the patient. You can prevent this painful side effect by following your dentist's aftercare instructions and avoiding actions like drinking through a straw, brushing the extraction site, and eating crunchy foods for the first 24-48 hours following the extraction.

The Side Effects Of Wisdom Teeth Removal

Discomfort

You may feel minor discomfort following your procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Any pain post-operation should diminish within a few days.

Swelling

Swelling and bruising are common side effects for the first few days following the extraction. Over-the-counter medication and a cold compress should help reduce any swelling or bruising.

Bleeding

We will give you gauze to take home following your extraction. Switch out this gauze regularly to help aid in blood clot formation. 

Bad Taste

A bad taste in your mouth could be a sign of a dry socket. Contact our practice right away if you notice a bad taste or intense pain near the extraction site.

Complications

Contact our dental practice right away if you develop a fever, have intense pain, or you have difficulty swallowing. These side effects could be warning signs of complications. You should also contact us if you have severe pain that does not subside with medication or swelling that worsens after the third or fourth day.

The Cost Of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Pricing for wisdom teeth removal varies depending on the level of impaction. You will first come in for a consult that includes an $80 panoramic X-ray and a $20 exam fee. Based on this information, our dentist can estimate the cost of your procedure. Keep in mind that sedation will increase the cost of treatment. Our dental practice accepts most insurance plans, and we also offer CareCredit® financing to help break your cost into manageable, monthly payments.
