Dr. Mark D. Schenkman D.D.S.'s Expert Contributions
  • Will I need antibiotics for a tooth extraction?

    It depends upon the type of extraction, some do, some do not. If they make an incision to get the tooth out, then it is likely you will need an antibiotic and stitches. If not, neither is necessary. Hope this helps and good luck!! READ MORE

  • How to fix my wisdom tooth problems?

    Yes, it's very likely you will need to have them removed. Once they begin to cause discomfort, they are likely infected and this will only get worse in the future. Even if it resolves on it's own, the pain and infection is cyclical and will likely come and go for a while. At some point the infection may become so bad, your face can swell and you can have unbearable pain. I recommend you see your friendly oral surgeon as soon as possible! READ MORE

  • Can I drive after having a wisdom tooth pulled?

    Absolutely not, it would be driving under the influence. You must have an escort with you when being sedated or put to sleep for any procedure. READ MORE

  • How to recover after wisdom teeth removal?

    It really depends, the depth of impaction to a large degree determines the recovery period. If the teeth are fully impacted the recovery is about a week (5-7 days), if partially impacted 3-4 days and if erupted (visible fully in your mouth) then it's 2-3 days. Regardless, you can eat solid foods even day one and regular diet when tolerated. Hope that helps... READ MORE

  • How painful is a tooth extraction?

    This is hard to answer as there are many factors that determine this. Upper vs. lower tooth (lowers are tougher), back tooth vs. front tooth (molars are more difficult). Decay vs. gum disease as the reason for removal, fillings, amount of tooth structure remaining, general dentist vs. oral surgeon, etc. Best to find out from the dentist about to do the extraction and the experience level. READ MORE

  • How should I prepare for a tooth extraction?

    There is really nothing you need to do to prepare for an extraction. Just keep your mouth clean as it will decrease bacterial load and minimize your chance of infection. Definitely don't smoke following the extraction though, dry socket is a miserable experience! READ MORE

  • Do I need my wisdom teeth removed?

    They need to be evaluated at the very least. They may be erupted through the gum and sitting normally and naturally in your mouth, in which case they do not need to be removed. If they are partially exposed or impacted, yes, they should be removed even if they are not painful. There are many things that can go wrong with impacted teeth such as crowding, decay, infection, cyst or tumor development, damage to neighboring teeth to name a few. I recommend you consult an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for more info on your specific case. READ MORE

  • Pain after wisdom tooth removal?

    Thank you for asking this question, and yes it will pass. How long that takes depends upon a number of factors: upper or lower tooth, front tooth or molar tooth, difficulty of extraction, etc. I would recommend the ibuprofen as it would ease your discomfort and after two days it is unlikely you would even need the Vicodin. If your pain intensifies over the next 1-3 days, it could be a sign of dry socket (although it doesn't sound like it right now) and you should return to the doctor that did the extraction for dry socket treatment. Hope this helps! READ MORE

  • Can I smoke after oral surgery?

    Thanks for asking. It is not wise to smoke for a minimum of 3 days after oral surgery. Doing so can lead to dry socket which is a terribly painful situation that requires another doctor visit to treat it. It usually does not respond to pain medicine, even narcotics. There is no guarantee that postponing smoking for 3 days will prevent a dry socket, but every day you go beyond the 3 days decreases your chances of getting the dry socket. Hope this helps.
