After Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that requires some post-operative care to reduce the chance of infection or other complications. Immediately after surgery, a gauze pad will be placed over the extraction site, which should not be removed for at least 45 minutes, and then discarded after that. Refrain from drinking from a straw or rinsing the mouth to ensure that you do not dislodge the blood clot that has formed. Limit your activities that day. You can resume your regular activities the following day. Take the pain medication as prescribed to reduce the amount of discomfort you feel after the local anesthetic wears off. As with any oral surgery, refrain from drinking through a straw as doing so creates suction and may disrupt the sutures.

    Trusted the Dr and fit me in when I was in need of a emergency! I would recommend him to anyone! Pleasant experience and he's a dr who actual cares about the patient!! He's very professional and explains things well and recommends the most needed treatment/prevention to help you with your teeth ! By far most favorite dentist I've EVER been to.

    Doc Strief knows NERVES! No pain while he administers anesthetic before surgery. Believe me, "NO WORRIES --- each and every time!" GOD BLESS HIM! {He sure BLESSES his patients!}

    I went Dr. Strief for an emergency visit and have nothing but great things to say! I've never been one who enjoys the dentist but after leaving their office I felt great! They made me feel comfortable the whole time and communicate everything that's going on! Amie at the front desk was awesome! She helped me out in any possible way she could. Great place with even better people! 5 starts is selling them short! Highly recommend this office to anyone
