Removal of wisdom teeth can be performed under local anesthesia, laughing gas (nitrous oxide), or IV sedation. Local anesthetic options can be discussed at the time of the initial consultation.
Once the teeth are removed, the gum is sutured, to help control bleeding the patient will be asked to bite down on a piece of gauze placed in the mouth.
Upon discharge you will receive, prescriptions for pain medication, antibiotics, and follow up appointment in one week for suture removal.
Absolutely no sipping from a straw.
