Sometimes, the “wisdom teeth,” large molars (back teeth) that usually start coming in around age 17-25, require removal because they cannot fully come into the mouth or they cause infection, pain or other problems.
At Love Your Smile Today our dentists are very experienced with tooth extraction procedures and will make sure your process is as comfortable as possible.
It is normal to feel some soreness for a few days after a tooth is removed. Any discomfort can usually be relieved by taking an over-the-counter pain medication, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. You should also hold an ice pack on the outside of the cheek: place it on for 5 minutes, then take it off for 5 minutes, and repeat as needed for one hour to reduce the potential for swelling in the first 24 hours.
