Do you have a college student coming home for spring break? Maybe you and your high-schooler are planning a “staycation” during the school holiday because of the pandemic. Whatever your spring break plans are, it’s also a great time to fit in those extra “to-dos” your family has had to put off for a while. In this case, wisdom tooth removal.
Scheduling a spring break wisdom tooth extraction — or one just before the holiday — can give your student enough time to recover and get back to school the following week.
Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Ask your son or daughter if they’ve been struggling with:
- Sore gums in the back of their mouth
- Swelling or stiffness near their jaw
- Irritation behind their back teeth
- Getting food caught in the back of their mouth
- Trouble brushing and flossing
Since partially-erupted and impacted wisdom teeth are at high risk for complications, it’s best to remove them before neighboring teeth are compromised as well.
Fit Your Consultation in Now
Schedule a brief exam and consultation with our Midlothian oral surgeon to find out if a wisdom tooth procedure is necessary. You can ask your current dentist for a referral or contact us directly! We serve families in Ellis, Dallas, and surrounding counties. Be sure to bring a copy of your insurance card (if you have access to it) so that we may provide you with a detailed treatment plan that will include an estimate of your out of pocket costs.
If your teen or college student does need their wisdom teeth removed, we can reserve an appointment time that fits their busy schedule. Whether it’s spring break, a Friday just before a long weekend, or even at the beginning of the summer, we’ll make sure that there’s plenty of time for R&R after their procedure.
Contact Texas Institute of Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery today to reserve your family’s appointment.
