Although trying to save our natural teeth is always the first option, sometimes it is necessary to remove teeth. For example, the baby teeth that have not erupted yet or wisdom teeth that are impacted. If you get anxiety or nervousness from the idea of extractions, sedation might be the right option for you. Sedation allows you the freedom to take a nap while your treatment is being completed.

Post-op instructions for extractions are very simple. A soft diet for at least the first week is recommended along with no little seeds or grains. These small particles of food can get trapped in the sockets and cause future complications. Pain medications are prescribed and should be taken as recommended.  If swelling occurs using an ice pack and sleeping with your head elevated should help alleviate the swelling.  Finally, warm salt water rinses are strongly advised to be used twice a day to clean out any debris that could be stuck in the sockets.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth Washington DC

Do you have pain in the back of your mouth? Have you been told you need your wisdom teeth removed? Wisdom teeth are an extra set of usually 4 or fewer teeth that grow between the ages of 13-18. Wisdom teeth can become very painful when they are trying to grow in and cause oral health problems due to the complexity of being able to brush them. Getting your wisdom teeth removed at a young age is imperative, due to the fact as we age complications increase. For example, as we age our bone gets more dense or hard, increasing the difficulty to remove these teeth. This difficulty in turn causes your recovery to be a lot more painful due to swelling and jaw tightness.

 

Wisdom teeth cost is the most common question we get asked. Wisdom teeth cost is very dependent on the level of impaction. The level of impaction means how close to the nerve, jaw, or artery it may be. The more impacted or complicated your tooth may be to remove increases the risk as well as the price. Price is also affected by if you have insurance or not. If you have dental insurance, then your insurance decides the set fees at which you have to pay and how much they will pay of those fees. So, giving the exact cost of wisdom teeth extractions can be very difficult. However, it usually ranges from $1,000-$2,500 for all four wisdom teeth with sedation. Sedation is the most comfortable way to get your wisdom teeth removed, you take a nap while your treatment is being completed. Wisdom teeth can be very complicated which is why it is very important to choose a dental specialist who has years of experience removing wisdom teeth.
