Yes, in most cases. The vast majority of wisdom tooth extraction cases are done under intravenous sedation. This provides a safe and comfortable state to remove wisdom teeth while the patient has little or no memory of the surgery. In our pittsburgh based office, we make sure to thoroughly evaluate each person in a presurgical appointment to determine if sedation is the best choice.

If you're being treated by a well-trained oral surgeon, you'll be deeply sedated and very comfortable throughout the procedure and for several hours thereafter. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause all sorts of problems and in most cases should be surgically removed. Your postoperative discomfort should be readily manageable with appropriate medication.
