Pain from Impaction
When you have an impacted third molar, you can experience extreme pain, but fortunately, there is a Naperville emergency dentist available to help you. Most people don’t have enough space in their mouths for wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have a tooth extraction quickly. The fast removal of third molars can prevent complications from an infection in the gums or alveolar bones. Our dentist will examine your mouth along with collecting medical images to determine exactly where the third molar is located, and you are sedated for the extraction.
Preventing Dry Socket
A Naperville emergency dentist can make a tiny incision in your gum tissue to reach the wisdom tooth, and it is pulled from your mouth. You may need stitches to close the incision, but these stitches are absorbed within a few days. After this surgery, you may feel groggy, so you should have a friend drive you home, and it is important to have someone care for you for a few days. It is important to follow our dentist’s instructions during your recovery, including sipping beverages without using a straw because this will prevent a painful dry socket in your gums.

The extraction site will bleed for approximately one day, but you will pack the area with gauze pads. You should change these gauze pads several times to prevent an infection and to feel more comfortable. Our Naperville emergency dentist will also provide a special elastic strap that will hold ice packs against your facial cheeks to reduce your discomfort. Within a few days, you can switch from a soft food diet to a regular diet, and you won’t feel any more pain.
