Dr. Hanna Mansoor is IV sedation certified to perform wisdom teeth removals efficiently while ensuring the patient remains calm and at ease.
Sure, having a tooth taken out may sound like a very big deal. But these troublemakers are usually better out than in. The procedure doesn’t take long. Healing can be simple. The drama-free process makes removal the obvious choice.
Fun Fact: Keeping these chompers won’t make you any wiser. Wisdom teeth get their name from appearing by the time you’ve wised up and matured. Most permanent teeth emerge around the tween years, while wisdom teeth make their entrance years later.
Molars are used to grind down food before swallowing. The third set of molars is considered wisdom teeth. While others are useful, these teeth aren’t needed. Left to their own devices, these extra teeth can get out of line.
This tooth surfaces above the gum line. Removing these calls for a simple extraction.
This situation can be much more complicated. The tooth becomes trapped and needs a complex extraction. There are four main types:
It may sound strange to get something natural removed. A common theory revolves around evolution. Our early ancestors needed these extra molars to rip up chunks of wild beasts and roots they ate.
Primitive humans had larger jaws to accommodate wisdom teeth. Silverware wasn’t available to cut food into bitesize morsels. Our diet and lifestyles changed dramatically over the years making these molars useless.

IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation, allowing patients to remain calm and comfortable throughout the wisdom teeth removal procedure.
It effectively reduces anxiety and fear associated with dental procedures, particularly for those who may be apprehensive about surgery.
IV sedation provides effective pain control during and after the surgery, ensuring that patients experience minimal discomfort.
We can precisely control the level of sedation to meet the individual needs of the patient, ensuring a safe and effective experience.
Patients are more likely to cooperate during the procedure, as they are in a relaxed state and less likely to move involuntarily.
IV sedation helps suppress the gag reflex, hugely beneficial during wisdom teeth removal.
Continuous monitoring of vital signs during IV sedation ensures the patient's safety throughout the entire wisdom teeth removal process.
The effects of IV sedation wear off relatively quickly after the procedure, so you often recover faster and experience fewer postoperative side effects compared to other forms of sedation.

It’s time you stop putting off your next dental visit. Whether it’s a general check-up or a complex restorative or cosmetic procedure, the time to book your appointment is now!
The answer to this question varies, but generally no. The average person needs anywhere from 48 to 72 hours of recovery time. That’s not to say you can’t get back to work in a limited capacity if you work from home. If your line of work requires physical labor, taking off several days may be in order.
Hot showers are not recommended for 48 hours after surgery. Opt for a relaxing bath instead.
Dr. Mansoor can give you a comprehensive exam and review your X-rays to determine which type of removal you’ll need. Although there can be some overlapping, third molar extractions tend to fall into two categories:
NO! Don’t fall victim to circulating rumors. The jaw remains completely intact during a normal wisdom tooth removal.
The time it takes to heal can be dependent on how well aftercare instructions are followed. Recovery can go like clockwork if you stick to recommendations such as:
Arnica Montana 200C can help with bruising. Place three tablets under your tongue three times a day for a week.
Hypericum 200C can assist with nerve regeneration. Place three tablets under your tongue three times a day for a week. Begin this medication seven days prior to surgery. Do NOT take if you are taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or mood stabilizing medications.
The above homeopathic medications may be purchased at markets specializing in healthy and organic products.
This answer is different for everyone. A third molar can cause pain from the way it emerges. If the tooth comes in at a strange angle, gets stuck or juts up against other teeth, it becomes impacted. This condition can cause anything from a mild irritation to severe pain.
An abscess can cause extreme amounts of pain. This situation happens when food particles get trapped around a partially exposed wisdom tooth.
Long-term discomfort can come from headaches, TMJ, your neck and other areas. Let Smiles by Hanna help. Dr. Mansoor can give you a thorough exam to determine how to get you living that pain-free life you deserve!

Typical patients can expect to resume normal daily activities (within reason) 48 to 72 hours after surgery. These two to three days should be spent resting and relaxing while keeping your head elevated.
If there are complications, prepare to rest for several days. Even if you feel alright, you need this time to recover.
Although this type of surgery is common, planning ahead can make all the difference.
Weeks and Days Leading up to Surgery:
Ideally, you should have third molars removed as soon as your X-rays indicate trouble on the horizon. For most people, waiting until the age 30 may cause complications. Delaying surgery can lengthen your recovery time. A wisdom tooth tends to wear out its welcome when most patients are between 17 and 25.
Virtually any type of surgical procedure poses somewhat of a risk. While uncommon, having your third molars taken out could potentially result in:

Address this situation before it gets out of hand. Related complications include:
No mouth is exactly the same. Most people get wisdom teeth by the time they reach their mid-20s. A select few never get a set of third molars. And 94-year-old Robert Gray set the record in 2017 for the world’s oldest person who had a wisdom tooth erupt.
Many dental professionals will agree that an impacted wisdom tooth can be tough to remove. Third molars are located about as far back as possible, so they’re difficult to access. Any of these teeth that come in at odd angles, have a curve and/or include abnormally shaped roots can be especially difficult to extract.
An oral surgeon or specially trained dentist can remove wisdom teeth. There may be instances where a patient is referred to a hospital if specific complications are present.
Most insurance plans cover a portion of removal costs. The percentage the provider pays varies based on your particular plan and the exact procedure you’ll be having done. Get specific policy information by contacting your insurance company directly.
No! If you only need a simple extraction, then a local anesthetic may be used. You remain aware and awake during the procedure. You’ll be able to hear and see everything. You may feel pressure as work is done but it shouldn’t hurt at all.
