Wisdom Teeth Extractions - Key Largo, FL

Relief from Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Come for Worry-Free Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, can frequently cause problems including severe pain. They are natural teeth, but their timing and location aren’t always ideal. Wisdom teeth are generally the last teeth to erupt through the gums, and since they don’t grow together with the other teeth, they can cause a host of oral health problems. When they don’t come in fully or correctly, impacted wisdom teeth often end up crowding existing teeth, causing those adjacent teeth to become crooked, and eventually to become decayed. Due to their position, wisdom teeth may be difficult to brush and floss, increasing their potential for decay.

The best way of treating impacted or problematic wisdom teeth is usually to remove them. If wisdom teeth extractions become necessary, rely on the experienced and skilled team here at Overseas Dental to perform the procedure with the utmost care and concern for your comfort. With an oral surgeon and other proven specialists affiliated with our practice, plus multiple successful wisdom teeth extractions every week—more than 700 total tooth extractions each year—you’ll never need to go anywhere else for your dental care.

The Best Ways to Make a Full Recovery

After your wisdom teeth extractions are complete, it may take you a few days to completely recover. You may experience some swelling; in this case, an ice pack can be very soothing. Plan to miss at least one day of work, school or other regular activities in addition to the day of the procedure. For the first 24 hours you should avoid rinsing your mouth, as this can cause dry sockets, a painful condition that slows your healing process. Avoid hard foods, hot foods, and any foods that are likely to cause slivers to get stuck between your teeth, such as popcorn. Take all medications as directed. It’s also important to “take it easy” for a few days following your procedure, as exercise can raise your heart rate and boost your chances of experiencing bleeding, swelling, and bruising.

Once your wisdom teeth extractions have been completed, you’ll be given detailed instructions before you leave our Key Largo, FL office. Please follow them carefully to ensure as smooth and painless a recovery as possible!
