Wisdom teeth removal is recommended when the wisdom teeth become impacted or fail to erupt properly. By undergoing wisdom teeth removal, you’re preventing the possibility of a painful infection from impacted wisdom teeth. Your dentist will give you pre-operative instructions, which you should follow carefully. You’ll need to take some time off from work or school. Although you’ll return home on the same day, you’ll need a day or perhaps two or three to recover. Be sure to arrange to have someone else drive you home after the surgery.
Before the extraction, inform the dentist if you’re taking any prescribed medications, over-the-counter drugs, or herbal supplements. You may be asked to temporarily discontinue drugs that inhibit blood clot formation.
