Do you offer wisdom teeth removals?

Wisdom teeth come in several years after your adult teeth—typically, during the late teens or early twenties. These teeth are not necessary aesthetically, and they do not play a role in bite function.

In some cases, these teeth—located at the back of the mouth—come in without any trouble. Other times, they do not have the necessary space to erupt properly, or they encroach on neighboring teeth. These issues leave you vulnerable to infection and pain.

Fortunately, your dentist in Birmingham, AL provides gentle wisdom teeth extraction right here in our dental office.

If you need wisdom teeth extracted in Birmingham, our dentist numbs the area and gently pulls the teeth. Sometimes, you need only a single extraction. Other times, it is better to remove all your wisdom teeth.

Following extraction, we provide you with specific instructions for aftercare. Typically, we recommend not smoking or drinking through a straw for the first twenty-four hours following your procedure.

When the anesthesia wears off, you may experience mild soreness at the extraction sites. Your dentist recommends an over-the-counter pain reliever approved by your general practitioner.
