Chances are, you know someone who’s had their wisdom teeth removed. You’ve probably even seen those funny viral videos of people acting silly after their procedures. But unless you’ve had this extraction done yourself, you might not know what exactly it entails.
While it may seem scary, wisdom teeth removal is an incredibly common and routine procedure. If your wisdom teeth did not properly erupt into your mouth, they can cause overcrowding, cramming, and other issues for your teeth and gums.
Many folks experience this and that’s why wisdom teeth removal is so frequent.
If you’re worried about your upcoming wisdom teeth removal, try to remind yourself just how routine this procedure is. Your oral surgeon probably performs this very removal multiple times a day. You can rest assured knowing you are in capable, experienced hands.
You should also know that there are many pain relief options during and after your surgery. You don’t have to suffer! Talk with your dentist or oral surgeon prior to the procedure to discuss your pain management plan. This will also ease your fears going into the surgery.
