Frequently Asked Questions
What can I eat after wisdom teeth removal?
We recommend sticking to soft foods that aren’t extremely hot. Soft foods are the easiest to eat while you heal and won’t cause harm to the surgical areas. When it comes to drinks, avoid straws as they can lead to painful dry socket and infection.
Can I be sedated during wisdom teeth surgery?
Yes. In addition to completely numbing the area around the wisdom teeth, we also provide relaxing sedation options for patients that need it. Please ask about sedation dentistry at your wisdom teeth consultation!
How long does it take to heal after wisdom teeth removal?
Every patient is different, so it varies on a case-by-case basis. On average, it can take 2 weeks to a month to completely heal after wisdom teeth removal. Following your at-home care instructions can help speed up the process and ensure that you have a quick, stress-free recovery.
Is wisdom teeth removal affordable?
The cost of wisdom teeth removal depends on a myriad of factors. However, we strive to make the procedure as affordable and accessible as possible for all of our patients. We accept a variety of payment options to help you find one that fits best with your budget!
