When planning to have wisdom teeth removed at a clinic such as Capital Oral & Facial Surgery Center, the patient naturally wonders what to expect and how to prepare. The patient’s family dentist and the oral surgeon provide instructions on how to get ready for the big day. They also can answer questions about concerns the person has.
Since this type of procedure is relatively common, patients often have friends or relatives who have already had one or more wisdom teeth removed. Usually the extraction only needs to be done by an oral surgeon if any of the teeth are impacted or growing in at a very crooked angle.
