It's Wise To Handle Wisdom Teeth Early
Problems with wisdom teeth are the most common complaint treated at Dr. Puckett's office. Wisdom teeth, also known a third molars, can be painful not to mention problematic. If there is not enough space in the mouth for the third molars or a less than 100% eruption can lead to an infection, crowding of other teeth, or loss of bone and gum and possibly other health problems. Patients are encouraged to have their wisdom teeth examined by Dr. Puckett with a current x-ray before problems arise.

Wisdom tooth extraction is an outpatient procedure normally performed in the office under general anesthesia.  In order to proceed with this procedure, an updated health history will be required.  We will provide you other instructions including withholding foods and liquids before the procedure as well as transportation home after the procedure.
