The best thing about wisdom tooth removal is that you only have to do it once. After your wisdom teeth are extracted, you can enjoy relief from discomfort and other symptoms caused by problematic wisdom teeth.
As with any surgery, wisdom tooth removal does carry some risks. We may give you antibiotics to reduce your risk of infection, but you should contact our office if you experience symptoms such as:
- Pain lasting longer than a few days
- Swelling that gets worse with time
- Excessive bleeding
- Numbness in the treatment area
- Pain or bleeding when blowing your nose
- A persistent bad taste
Following a surgical procedure, every patient at our practice is given Dr. Edwards’s cell phone number. We encourage you to call him or our surgical staff immediately if you notice any concerning symptoms.
