Wisdom Teeth Removal

Do you feel pain in the back of your jaw? Have you noticed swelling or bleeding? You may need wisdom teeth removal. As stressful as this sounds, Dr. Donald B. Cork can guide you through treatment.

Don't delay—visit our Merritt Island, FL, office quickly, as this condition is best treated sooner rather than later.

Common Signs to Look for

While not all of our Merritt Island, FL, wisdom tooth patients will experience unpleasant signs of impaction, some may notice:

  • Swelling
  • Foul Breath
  • Oral Pain
  • Bleeding or Pus

Enjoy a More Comfortable Approach to Wisdom Tooth Extractions

If your wisdom teeth are impacted, you can trust our dentist to comfortably and safely remove them. Our Merritt Island, FL, dental office has two methods to keep you at ease as we treat your teeth and improve your oral wellness:

Local Anesthesia

This is a type of anesthesia, or pain-blocking medication, applied directly to a certain area before a dental procedure. In this case, that would be your jaw and gums where your wisdom tooth or teeth are present. The anesthesia will keep you comfortable and numb as our dentist removes your tooth.

Sedation Dentistry

Whether we're removing wisdom teeth or performing a routine procedure, our patients sometimes need a little extra help staying calm. We're happy to provide nitrous oxide. It's entirely adjustable, and once we're done treating your mouth, it will quickly leave your system, allowing you to drive yourself home.

How Our Oral Surgeon  Helped This Merritt Island Wisdom Tooth Patient

"I had a wisdom tooth pulled last week. I was so nervous all for nothing. Dr. Cork was AMAZING. I barely felt the numbing. And had very little swelling after. His bedside manner had me so comfortable I was surprised when he said we were done. 10/10 would recommend this place to everyone." Anna Conners

Is Wisdom Tooth Removal

Covered by Insurance?

Wisdom tooth removal is often covered by insurance. The degree of coverage will depend on your provider and plan. We can confirm if we take your insurance ahead of time for your peace of mind.

Remember: The reason why the extraction of wisdom teeth is covered is because it's crucial for your oral function and overall health. Without prompt wisdom tooth treatment from our Merritt Island, FL, team, you could struggle with additional pain, tooth misalignment, gum disease, and infection. Do your part to protect your smile and visit our understanding dentists for removal.

Dental Consultation

Dr. Cork will examine your teeth, gums, and jaw. We may also take X-rays or use 3D cone beam computed tomography to better assess the condition and location of your teeth and oral structures.

Anesthetic & Sedation

We want all our patients to be comfortable and at ease during their dental visits. To make that possible, we can apply a local anesthetic and administer nitrous oxide before we begin the removal process.

Accessing the Tooth

Our Merritt Island, FL, oral surgeon will ensure that your mouth is sterile. Then, he may loosen your tooth or make an opening in your gums around your affected teeth.

Removing the Tooth

Next, our dentist will remove your tooth and all its roots.

Closing the Area

Once each tooth has been taken out, our dentist will clean the area. He may also close your gums using sutures.


As a final touch, Dr. Cork might lay gauze over your treatment sites and ask you to bite down on it. This can slow and eventually halt any bleeding you may experience.
