  • What should I eat after wisdom teeth removal?

    After wisdom teeth removal, it’s important to stick to a soft or liquid diet to avoid irritating the surgical site. Here are some recommended foods:

    • Soft fruits: Applesauce, banana, or mashed avocado
    • Smooth soups and broths
    • Yogurt and puddings
    • Smoothies
    • Mashed potatoes

    Avoid hard, crunchy, spicy, or very hot foods, as they might irritate your gums or disrupt the healing sockets.

  • How much does wisdom teeth removal cost?

    The cost of wisdom teeth removal at DeFuniak Springs Family Dental can vary depending on the case’s complexity, including whether the teeth are impacted or the type of anesthesia used.

    Generally, prices can range from:

    • Simple Extraction: Cost-effective for teeth that have fully emerged
    • Surgical Extraction: Higher cost for impacted teeth or those requiring more complex surgical techniques

    We strive to provide transparent pricing and discuss all available payment and financing options during your consultation. Our team is committed to ensuring you receive care without financial stress.

  • Do you have to get your wisdom teeth removed?

    Not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed. The decision depends on several factors:

    • Pain and Discomfort: If wisdom teeth are causing pain or discomfort
    • Overcrowding: If there’s not enough room in your mouth, leading to misalignment
    • Impaction: Wisdom teeth that haven’t fully emerged or are misaligned may need removal to prevent infection or damage to adjacent teeth
    • Gum Disease and Cavities: Difficulty cleaning wisdom teeth can lead to decay or gum disease

    During your dental checkup at DeFuniak Springs Family Dental, we’ll evaluate your wisdom teeth’s position and health to recommend whether removal is necessary for your overall oral health.
