The wisdom teeth, which are also called the third molars, usually grow when a person is in their late teens or early 20s. Nearly 85% of adults ultimately have their wisdom teeth removed. These teeth often grow at a severe angle, and there is usually very little space available for them. The wisdom teeth can very seriously crowd other teeth and cause major dental problems. For these reasons, wisdom teeth extractions are extremely important.
Alice Dental Associates takes great pride in providing effective wisdom teeth extractions in Alice, Texas. We make sure that the process is safe and that the patient is kept comfortable. Our dentists work with great precision and care so that the patient faces the easiest recovery possible.
The average patient can expect it to take about a week to recover from a wisdom teeth extraction. Some patients will recover faster, while others will take a little more time.
This usually depends on how severely the teeth were impacted and how the patient spends their recovery. The best way to promote a quick recovery is to get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids and make sure to get enough nutrients.
The patient will want to avoid any tough foods, as chewing will most likely be very difficult. They should only consume soft foods and gradually work their way back up to a regular diet as they begin to feel better. But keep in mind that the patient must also be sure to get enough nutrients to encourage an easy recovery. Additional instructions will be provided to help the patient avoid any unwanted complications. If the patient suffers any further complications, such as dry sockets, they should contact our office for further support.

Best dental staff ever! I have been going here since the 90s and i will never use or trust any dentist with my teeth except Dr. Garza! Thanks for everything! P.s. they make you feel like family here!
Dr. Roel Garza is a skilled dentist who did an excellent job extracting a broken molar. He is thorough and communicates well with his patients. The front office staff and hygienists/assistants are good too. I recommend this dental practice.
