Where to Go for Wisdom Teeth Removal in Citrus Park, FL
At Tampa Surgical Arts, we provide wisdom teeth removal for clients of all ages in Citrus Park, Florida, and nearby areas. Your procedure will be expertly performed by our triple-board-certified oral surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, who always practices compassionate, individualized care. Dr. Bedi is one of the few dental specialists in the area who can provide a non-opioid oral surgery experience. We can offer opioid-free sedation as well as EXPAREL®, which is administered near the end of the wisdom teeth removal. This long-acting local anesthetic provides up to 72 hours of pain relief following a procedure and can reduce or even eliminate the need for narcotic pain meds.
Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth grow in the back of the mouth in each quadrant—upper right, upper left, lower right, and lower left. These teeth were needed by our ancestors for chewing hard food but are not as useful to us anymore. While not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed, you may want to consider extraction if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Any type of sensitivity or pain in the back of your mouth
- Jaw pain or stiffness
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- Difficulty opening your mouth
Wisdom Teeth Removal at Tampa Surgical Arts
You’ll have an initial consultation with Dr. Bedi where he will examine your wisdom teeth to determine the best course of action for your extraction. Wisdom teeth that are impacted require a much more specialized procedure than ones that have grown in normally. Dr. Bedi will explain the wisdom teeth removal procedure and encourage you to ask questions to ensure you feel as comfortable as possible. You’ll also receive detailed instructions on what to do before and after the extraction, and we’re always here to answer questions as they arise.
One part of the recovery period that you can look forward to is a post-operative smoothie! Our vegan-friendly smoothies are available in several fruity options, all designed to be tasty as well as aid in the recovery process.
