Experience tells us that patients equipped with the right information have a better experience when it comes to wisdom teeth removal. It is therefore important for you to find out as much as you can about what to expect from the procedure in order to ensure that you prepare for the surgery as well as the healing process.

Some basics to start you off

The following are the three things that every oral surgeon would like patients to know.

  1. 1.Cost of wisdom teeth removal

The cost of removal of wisdom teeth is much higher than for normal extraction of teeth. This however depends on the level of complexity of the work involved in the removal of the tooth. The cost of extraction will also depend on the type of insurance coverage you have as well as the financial policies of the oral surgeon carrying out the procedure. It is good to get all the information beforehand and be prepared.

  1. 2.Pain prevention

Many people are afraid of experiencing pain when they go for tooth extraction. It is good to discuss this with your dental surgeon. The dentist will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure through various methods including general anesthesia, local anesthesia and sedation. Talking to your dentist about your concerns will help them to determine the best type of treatment to provide.

  1. 3.Age

Many people keep putting off tooth extraction until they cannot bear the pain anymore. You should know that the older you are, the more difficult it becomes to extract wisdom teeth. You don’t have to have studied dentistry to know that dental procedures are much easier when you are younger and the tissue surrounding the bone is much softer. There is less chance of nerve damage. In addition to this, the roots of your teeth grow longer as your grow older making it more painful and complicated to extract teeth.

Ask your dentist questions in order to get more information. This will ensure that you are better equipped to deal with any situation involving your wisdom teeth.
