Preparing for Your Wisdom Teeth Extraction with Yanich Oral Surgery

At Yanich Oral Surgery, we make the teeth extraction process as smooth and comfortable as possible. This preparation begins from the initial consultation until you are fully prepared for the surgery.

What to Expect at the Initial Consultation

Initial consultations allow Dr. Jason Yanich to understand your unique oral health needs and assess the state of your wisdom teeth. Using state-of-the-art technology, he will conduct a comprehensive examination of your mouth, including 3D dental imaging, to fully visualize your wisdom teeth’ position. Dr. Yanich will also explain the findings to you, ensuring you understand the procedure’s necessity and what it entails.

Based on the assessment, a tailored treatment plan will be developed. This plan will include details about the procedure, anticipated recovery time, and an outline of potential risks and benefits. 

How to Prepare for the Surgery

Fasting guidelines: To ensure the safe administration of anesthesia, you may be required to fast for several hours before the procedure.

Medication adjustments: Adjustments might be necessary if you're on any medication. Dr. Yanich will review this with you.

Arranging transportation: Since you'll be under anesthesia, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home post-procedure.

The Day of Your Wisdom Teeth Removal: What to Expect

Understanding what to expect on the day of your wisdom teeth removal can help alleviate any anxiety or uncertainty. At Yanich Oral Surgery, we walk you through each step, ensuring you feel confident and prepared for the procedure.

The Procedure

Your wisdom teeth removal procedure begins with administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Jason Yanich will discuss the most suitable option for you, which could range from local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or IV sedation, depending on the complexity of your case and your comfort level.

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Yanich will make a small incision in your gum to access the impacted wisdom tooth. The tooth is then removed carefully, and the area is cleaned to make sure no debris is left behind. If necessary, sutures are applied to aid healing.

Rest assured, Dr. Yanich’s expertise and gentle approach aim to make this procedure as efficient and pain-free as possible.

Post-Operative Care for a Smooth Recovery

To facilitate your recovery after wisdom teeth removal, observe these aftercare surgical instructions provided by Dr. Jason Yanich at Yanich Oral Surgery:

Pain Management: Mild discomfort and swelling are normal after surgery. Manage this with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication as directed by Dr. Yanich.

Use Ice Packs: Apply an ice pack to the affected area in 15-minute intervals to help reduce swelling.

Rest and Hydrate: Get plenty of rest and stay hydrated. Avoid strenuous activity for the first few days after surgery.

Eat Soft Foods: Start with a diet of soft foods such as yogurt, smoothies, and soups. Gradually introduce harder foods as your comfort allows.

Oral Hygiene: Maintain oral hygiene by gently brushing your teeth, and avoiding the surgical area initially. After a few days, you can start gently rinsing your mouth with warm salt water several times a day to help keep the area clean.

Avoid Certain Activities: Don't smoke or use a straw as these actions can dislodge the blood clot that aids in healing, leading to a painful condition known as "dry socket".

Follow-Up Visit: Attend the scheduled follow-up appointment with Dr. Yanich to ensure proper healing and address any concerns.

After-Care Tips for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Here are a few after-care tips to keep in mind following your wisdom tooth removal:


Apply a cold compress to your face for 20 minutes to reduce swelling. Do this as often as possible for the first 24 - 48 hours after surgery.


If you experience bruising, allow it to dissipate on its own. Avoid using makeup or other products that could irritate the area.


It’s essential to take it easy for at least 24 hours after your procedure. Avoid strenuous activity and exercise, as this can cause bleeding and swelling.

Oral Hygiene

Be sure to brush and floss your teeth carefully avoiding the extraction site. Dr. Yanich may recommend a prescription strength mouth wash or salt water rinse to be used twice per day. Over rinsing will cause dry socket.


Stick to soft foods for the first few days. Gradually add solid foods back into your diet once you feel comfortable. Avoid hot drinks, alcohol, and smoking.

Pain Medication

We may give you a prescription for pain medication, but over-the-counter options can also be effective. Be sure to take the medication as directed.

The cost of wisdom teeth removal can vary widely, depending on several factors, such as the complexity of the extraction, the type of anesthesia used, and your insurance coverage. It’s best to discuss this with Dr. Jason Yanich during your consultation at Yanich Oral Surgery, where a detailed cost estimate can be provided based on your case.

The initial recovery period after wisdom teeth removal typically lasts up to two weeks, during which you might experience swelling and discomfort. However, complete healing of the area where the tooth was removed may take several weeks. The recovery period can vary depending on the complexity of the extraction and individual healing rates.

At Yanich Oral Surgery, we use effective anesthesia methods to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible during extraction. While you might experience discomfort after the procedure, pain medication can effectively manage this. 

There isn’t a ‘best’ age for wisdom teeth removal, as it depends on individual circumstances. Generally, wisdom teeth tend to erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, and it is often recommended to have them removed around this time, as the roots may not be fully formed and the bone is less dense, making extraction easier. 

However, a comprehensive examination by Dr. Yanich will determine the appropriate timing for you.
