Wisdom Teeth Removal from a Highly Trained Oral Surgeon in the Tampa Bay Area

Wisdom Teeth RemovalTampa Surgical Arts provides wisdom teeth removal for patients in Tampa Bay, Florida, and throughout the Tampa Bay area. Our oral surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, is highly skilled and triple board certified, including a certification with the American Board of Maxillofacial Surgery, and he goes the extra mile to ensure his patients are comfortable during this procedure. Whether it’s time for your teenager to get his or her wisdom teeth out, or you’re an older individual who is finally ready for the surgery, we’ll provide the expert services you seek.

Defining Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the final teeth to come in, usually during the mid-to-late teen years. Often, they need to be removed because the jaw isn’t big enough to accommodate them, which can cause an array of problems, including gum disease, infection, cysts, tooth decay, and bone damage. Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure for teenagers, and Dr. Bedi performs it under general anesthesia for the comfort of his patients.

How Wisdom Teeth Removal Is Performed

  • A small opening over the tooth is created and excess bone is removed.
  • Tissues connecting the tooth and the bone are separated to make the extraction as seamless as possible.
  • The tooth is extracted. In certain cases, the tooth may need to be cut into smaller pieces to remove it.
  • The opening is closed using dissolvable sutures.

The Benefits of Removing Wisdom Teeth

Removing wisdom teeth is important for many of the reasons mentioned above, such as warding off infection, tooth decay, gum disease, and more. It can also prevent overcrowding in your jaw, helping to preserve the alignment of your teeth. Even better, your teeth will be easier to clean because wisdom teeth are located in a hard-to-reach space, making brushing and flossing a difficult process and leading to plaque buildup and cavities.

Treatment Considerations for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth RemovalWhile wisdom teeth removal is a fairly straightforward procedure, complications can arise if your teeth are impacted. Since there often isn’t room for wisdom teeth to grow in the jaw, they can sometimes grow in at odd angles – or not at all. A wisdom tooth that cannot grow in due to the severity of the angle is said to be impacted. There are three levels of impaction:

  • Soft tissue – A tooth has emerged from the gum line, but is not at its full length.
  • Partial bony – The tooth has emerged from the gum line, but the deepest part of the tooth remains firmly below the jawbone.
  • Complete bony – There is no space for the wisdom tooth to emerge from and it is completely implanted into the jawbone.

Soft tissue impactions are the easiest type of impacted tooth to remove while complete bony impactions are the most difficult. It’s important to get regular dental checkups to evaluate the growth of the wisdom teeth and the potential for impaction.

Before and After Wisdom Teeth Removal

You’ll be given a thorough information packet that will tell you what to do before surgery and what to expect afterward. Since wisdom teeth removal involves sedation, you’ll need to stop eating or drinking eight hours before the surgery. It’s also important that a responsible adult (in the case of minors, a parent or legal guardian) accompany you to the appointment. This adult will need to drive you home after the surgery and be with you for at least six hours following the removal.

Recovering from this surgery is different for everyone, but most people experience pain and swelling around the affected area. You can take the prescribed pain medication, as well as place ice packs around your jaw to reduce the swelling. Avoid vigorously rinsing your mouth or touching the affected area in the hours following the surgery.

The day after the removal, it will be important to start gently rinsing your mouth at least five times a day. New tissue will begin to grow into the cavity where the tooth was removed, and while this process occurs, it’s vital to keep the area clean using salt water rinses.

Count on Tampa Surgical Arts

Wisdom teeth removal is a procedure that should only be performed by an experienced oral surgeon, which is why you should consult with Dr. Bedi at Tampa Surgical Arts for it. Contact our office today to schedule a no-obligation consult with our team.

CORRECTIVE CASES

A corrective case is one that involves reducing irregularities from a previous procedure.

Most of the procedures we do are revisions, meaning the primary surgery was done by another provider.

In the procedure detail, at the end of the caption, you will get most of the information that you need about the case.

This beautiful client came to see us for a revision after having lipo elsewhere.

Her results are a perfect example of how maintaining a healthy lifestyle will get you next level results!

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they do corrective cases.

ULTRASOUND GUIDED BBL

Using an ultrasound helps the surgeon see important structures during fat transfer and is a tool that can increase client safety.

There are no major downsides to using an ultrasound.

There is an added cost to the facility and a slight learning curve to using an ultrasound.

Some surgeons do not use ultrasound and obtain great results, which is fine for them.

Most experienced BBL surgeons would agree that ultrasound definitely adds safety and certainly does not cause harm.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they perform ultrasound guided fat transfer to the buttocks.

SITTING AFTER BBL

The skin on the laterals/hip dip area is typically the tightest in the buttock area.

For those who want this area "filled," sometimes a round 2 BBL is required.

Even in the best hands, a round 2 fat transfer might not fully add enough volume to the hip dip.

This beautiful client is over 6 months out and had great fat uptake in the laterals after one BBL.

She has been using her BBL pillow the entire time!

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how to long to use your BBL pillow.

FINESSE SCULPTING

Most providers would agree; the thinner the client/ tissue the more challenging the case.

The best results are consistently in those who have a positive mindset and strive to live their best life everyday.

A balanced body emulates the qualities of elegance, class, luxury, and of course a natural appearance.

BBL SWELLING

The journey of body sculpting is typically filled with the `ups and downs` of panicking about butt size.

The most common thing we hear on day 1 is "my butt is way too big!"

Most often, it settles in a few weeks, and then we commonly hear at a few months, "I wish it was bigger, can I get a round 2"

This beautiful client wanted a natural appearance and is now at her final buttock contour.

BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION

The trend of unnatural/ overdone BBL`s is rarely requested by clients.

Instead, clients want a natural and proportionate look, which also happens to be a timeless appearance.

This beautiful client came to see me to fill her hip dips for a more athletic appearance overall.

A select few can have multiple procedures done at the same time.

This beautiful client came to see us for a smaller waist and to fill her hip dips.

@dr.tolomeo did her tummy tuck and I performed the BBL.

Who is excited to see how this one turns out?

LASER FOCUSED

We are fortunate enough to be a destination center for body sculpting.

More specifically, we focus on butt enhancements/ultrasound guided fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) and related procedures (4D body contouring/lipo 360).

This allows the team to optimize outcomes, improve client experience, and most importantly, keep safety paramount.

This beautiful woman had a round 2 BBL to achieve this look.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

SKIN QUALITY

The best candidates for liposculpture will have tight skin with no stretch marks.

If you have loose skin with stretch marks, you will require a skin removal procedure (tummy tuck).

Some are blessed to have tight skin after multiple pregnancies.

Others will have loose skin and no history of pregnancy.

This beautiful client had 4 previous pregnancies and was a candidate for liposculpture with skin tightening.

MEASURING WAIST TO HIP RATIO

A balanced/proportionate fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) is a popular trend now.

This has been our philosophy from the beginning.

A common misconception is that a round 2 BBL will look fake.

This beautiful client had a round 2 to fill her hip dips and accentuate her curves.

She now has an improvement in her W::H ratio.

This ratio is just one tool that might be used to track your progress.

Can you guess her waist to hip ratio?

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if measuring your W::H ratio is useful.

CONTOURING

Body sculpting focuses on highlighting your underlying anatomy and curves.

Not all clients require a fat transfer to achieve a natural look.

As always, doing this procedure with hidden entry points requires the combination of artistic judgment and technical surgical skill.

All of this is done to limit the chance of visible scars.

LATERALS

Fat transfer to the laterals typically has the least amount of uptake.

This area can sometimes need a round 2 fat transfer to achieve the desired look.

Some clients have great underlying bone structure, skin elasticity, fat quality, genetics, blessed by fat transfer magicians, etc... and will have great uptake after 1 round.

This beautiful client had a round 1 BBL only.

IRRELEVANT NOISE

Body sculpting is best for those who want to be the best version of themselves.

It is not for those looking for quick fix weight loss; instead, for those who are trying to achieve fine tuning, balance, and curves.

The same noise directed at those who get elective procedures done is found towards physique enthusiasts who take gear, HRT, etc..

If you think competitive a bodybuilder obtains their physique with only supplements you don`t understand the amount of dedication it takes to train your body.

Similarly, body contouring requires a dedicated commitment to the process.

This beautiful woman came to see me for corrective lipo and to fill her hip dips.

SKIN TIGHTENING

Internal plus external skin tightening is the latest technology we have been providing to our clients.

The best candidate for this type of tightening is someone with minimal to no stretch marks.

This beautiful client had lipo elsewhere and was left with multiple contour irregularities in the belly region.

She came to see us for a natural and balanced appearance.

We used internal radiofrequency plus external radiofrequency tightening to help achieve this look.

SCULPTING FOR SECONDARY CURVES

Creating a natural look is sculpting that highlights your underlying foundation.

Some are blessed with starting bone and muscular structure that allows for a very curvy body.

The secondary curve is when the waist area is contoured to create the optical illusion of larger buttocks.

The primary curve is typically from adding volume (fat transfer) to the hips/laterals/buttocks.
