Omaha, NE Oral Surgeons Relieve Impacted Wisdom Tooth Pain

This is important nowadays because we have a narcotic crisis. Anything we can do to lower the suffering of our patients, and possibly and probably avoid the use of narcotics is very well advised.

The renowned oral surgeons at Midwest Oral Surgery & Dental Implants in Omaha, NE offer patients experiencing wisdom tooth pain an option to receive gentle, effective wisdom teeth extractions. Trained in a hospital setting for up to six years beyond dental school, Drs. Jerome Wees, John Wewel, and Benjamin Anderson possess medical knowledge and surgical skills that are rare to dentistry. These oral surgeons use that experience to provide the most comprehensive and compassionate treatment for their patients with impacted wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. Since most people don’t have room for wisdom teeth, at some point along the eruption pathway, the wisdom teeth inevitably get stuck. This makes the timing of removing impacted wisdom teeth extremely significant. Because wisdom teeth develop during the late teenage and early adolescent years, an impacted wisdom tooth can easily be removed when a patient is still young. Youth increases the likelihood that a wisdom tooth is still in the proper location and the root hasn’t fully formed yet. The longer a wisdom tooth remains in the mouth, the more time the roots have to fully form, and the greater the chance that the teeth will become solidly impacted.

The doctors of Midwest Oral Surgery & Dental Implants highly recommend that patients receive a wisdom tooth extraction at the first sign of wisdom tooth pain. This will decrease the risk of complications and will provide quick relief from the corresponding pain.

Because wisdom tooth extraction is a treatment usually associated with pain and swelling, Drs. Wees, Wewel, and Anderson work carefully to ensure that patients experience the least amount of pain possible throughout the process. These oral surgeons offer patients EXPAREL®, an opioid-free pain relief option. EXPAREL allows patients to remain numb up to three days after extraction, giving them a nearly pain-free experience.

“This is important nowadays because we have a narcotic crisis,” Dr. Wees explains describing EXPAREL. “Anything we can do to lower the suffering of our patients, and possibly and probably avoid the use of narcotics is very well advised.”
