Should I Remove all Four Wisdom Teeth at once?
A common question that we get asked here at Elk Grove Smile Center is "should I remove all 4 wisdom teeth at once?". Dr. Vishal Advani recommends removing all four wisdom teeth at one time, because the recovery is done all at one time. It's much easier to have to go through the numbing and procedure and healing period once, rather than doing it in multiple visits. The recovery period after an extraction or multiple extractions is typically 3-10 days. Most patient are back to school or work the next day or 2 days later. Removing more than one tooth at a time not only makes the procedure easier for you, but you also don't have to take as much time off.
