Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Howick

Wisdom teeth (third molars) may cause pain and infection if there is inadequate space for them to grow properly. When this happens, they often become impacted inside the bone or under neighbouring healthy teeth. To eliminate your pain and risk of recurring complications, wisdom tooth removal is usually recommended.

Dr Pulkit Kinra takes added measures to ensure your safety and relaxation during every procedure, especially wisdom tooth extractions. In most cases, he performs the surgery under intravenous (IV) or oral sedation for added comfort. Since you’ll be drowsy for a few hours, it’s important to have someone accompany you to and from the appointment.

Any time sedation is used, it’s important not to eat or drink anything other than water within the four hours prior to your surgery. We also ask that you wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Recovering After Wisdom Tooth Removal

We recommend stocking up on soft, cool foods, such as yogurt, smoothies and ice cream. For the first few days, do your best to eat a soft diet and remain hydrated. Dr Pulkit will also provide you with special care instructions to improve your recovery and reduce the risk of swelling or bleeding after your extractions.

To ease your recovery time, we will also prescribe medications to help manage inflammation and post-operative discomfort. Always be sure to take your medicine as directed. You can contact us at any time if you are experiencing significant discomfort or signs of an infection (such as a dry socket).
