Best dentist I've ever been to easy. I'm an extremely rough patient who is petrified of needles and has panic attacks. Dr. Casey AND HIS STAFF (can't stress this enough, many reviews speak of Dr. Casey but his staff is equally unbelievable and exceptional) have never judged me and have always been nothing but understanding.If you want the highest level of care possible, this is the place to go.

Positive experience, warmly greeted. I am beyond thrilled with the experience(s) so far. This practice has dealt with my lifelong issues of a paralysing phobia of dentists and begun rectifying the problems this past week. I have many medical issues that make a trip to the dentist an ordeal, yet Dr. Casey took me on without hesitation. Other dentists were leary of my medical issues and have put me off for years. If you have serious issues and have put them off, here is your solution.

What to Expect during Treatment

Day of Procedure

Anesthesia

Your dentist administers local anesthesia to numb the teeth and gums. If you have chosen a sedation method, it is administered during this time.

Incisions

Your dentist creates a small incision in the gums near the affected tooth, acting as an access point.

Removal

Once the tooth is accessed, your dentist carefully removes it. In some cases, the tooth is divided into separate parts for easier extraction.

Sutures

After the molar has been removed, your dentist closes the incision with surgical sutures. These will typically dissolve within a few days.

Gauze 

Once the procedure is complete, a small piece of gauze is placed over the surgical site to slow bleeding.

Recovery

Healing from wisdom teeth removal typically takes around two weeks. Most patients can return to non-strenuous activities after two or three days.

What to Expect during Recovery

Our staff will provide you with a detailed list of instructions to follow after surgery. To ensure a comfortable, successful recovery, these guidelines must be followed precisely:

Medication

It is normal to experience some pain and discomfort after surgery. Wisdom tooth pain can be managed with ibuprofen, naproxen, or other over-the-counter pain relievers.

Blood Clots

Blood clots will form in the surgical site. It is crucial not to use a straw or make a sucking motion with your mouth, as this could dislodge the blood clot and cause a painful condition called dry socket.

Swelling

To reduce inflammation and swelling, patients can apply a cold compress to the jaw area. This should be done in 20-minute increments for the first 24 hours after surgery.

Activity

During the first few days of recovery, it is important to avoid strenuous activity. An elevation in heart rate can increase the risk of post-operative bleeding and swelling.

Food

Patients should eat a soft-food diet such as yogurt, pudding, applesauce, pasta, eggs, or smoothies. After a few days, you may incorporate more solid foods at your discretion.
