Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect when you need wisdom teeth removal at Sarasota Dental Arts.

Why should wisdom teeth be removed?
Wisdom teeth often need to be removed if they are impacted, cause pain, lead to infection, or crowd other teeth. Removal helps to prevent these issues and maintain overall oral health.
What is the process for wisdom teeth removal?
The process typically involves an initial consultation with X-rays, followed by the surgical removal of the wisdom teeth under local anesthesia or sedation. The specifics of the procedure depend on the position and development of your wisdom teeth.
Is the procedure painful?
We use local anesthesia and offer sedation options to ensure your comfort during the procedure. You may experience some discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, but this can generally be managed with prescribed pain medication.
How long is the recovery after having wisdom teeth removed?
Recovery varies by individual but typically takes a few days. We recommend resting for at least 48 hours and following specific aftercare instructions to minimize swelling and discomfort.
What are the risks of wisdom teeth removal?
As with any surgery, there are risks, including infection, dry socket, nerve damage, or sinus complications. However, these risks are rare and can be minimized with proper care and technique.
How do I prepare for wisdom teeth removal?
Avoid eating, drinking, or smoking before surgery as instructed, arrange for someone to drive you home afterward, and prepare a recovery area at home where you can rest comfortably.
What should I eat after the surgery?
Stick to soft, easy-to-chew foods for the first few days, such as yogurt, smoothies, soups, and mashed potatoes. Avoid hard, spicy, or hot foods that might irritate the extraction site.
Will I need to follow up after the procedure?
Yes, we typically schedule a follow-up visit to monitor your healing and remove any stitches if necessary.

Many dental insurance plans cover part or all of the cost of wisdom teeth removal. We will help you understand your coverage and assist with the necessary paperwork.
Does dental insurance cover wisdom teeth removal?
