Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal by Dr. Matt Merfeld at Rochester Dental Clinic

Comprehensive Care with I.V. Conscious Sedation and Platelet-Rich Fibrin

At Rochester Dental Clinic, Dr. Matt Merfeld provides expert care in the removal of impacted wisdom teeth, utilizing advanced techniques to ensure a comfortable and efficient procedure. With the option of I.V. Conscious Sedation and the use of Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) to accelerate healing, our goal is to make your experience as smooth and stress-free as possible. 

Why Remove Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a range of dental issues if not addressed promptly, including:

  • Pain and Discomfort: Impacted teeth can cause significant pain and swelling.
  • Infection: Trapped food and bacteria around impacted teeth can lead to infections and gum disease.
  • Crowding: Wisdom teeth can push adjacent teeth out of alignment, causing crowding and bite issues.
  • Cysts and Tumors: Impacted teeth can sometimes form cysts or tumors, which can damage the jawbone and surrounding teeth. 

The Ideal Time for Evaluation

Evaluating wisdom teeth around the age of 16 is highly recommended. At this stage, the roots of the wisdom teeth are not fully developed, making removal simpler and reducing the risk of complications. Early evaluation and removal can prevent many of the issues associated with impacted wisdom teeth. 

The Removal Procedure

  1. Consultation and Assessment: Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Matt Merfeld. During this visit, we will assess your wisdom teeth through X-rays and discuss the best course of action.
  2. I.V. Conscious Sedation: Dr. Merfeld is licensed in I.V. Conscious Sedation and ACLS Certified, ensuring you are in safe hands. This sedation option helps manage anxiety and discomfort, allowing for a more relaxed experience during the procedure.
  3. Extraction: Dr. Merfeld will carefully remove the impacted teeth using advanced surgical techniques. The use of Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) during the procedure helps to accelerate healing and reduce post-operative complications.
  4. Post-Operative Care: After the extraction, we provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. PRF aids in faster healing, reducing swelling, and minimizing the risk of infection. 

Enhancing Wound Healing with Bio PRF at Rochester Dental Clinic

  • At Rochester Dental Clinic, we are committed to utilizing the latest advancements in dental technology to improve patient outcomes. One such advancement is the use of Bio Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) in our procedures, particularly in the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. Bio PRF is a cutting-edge technology that significantly accelerates healing and reduces post-operative complications.
  • Bio PRF is derived from the patient’s own blood, which is processed to concentrate platelets and growth factors into a fibrin matrix. This matrix is then applied to the surgical site, where it promotes faster tissue regeneration, reduces swelling and pain, and minimizes the risk of infection. By incorporating Bio PRF into our practice, we ensure a quicker and smoother recovery for our patients undergoing wisdom teeth extractions. This advanced technique, combined with our expertise and the use of I.V. Conscious Sedation, ensures a comfortable and efficient treatment experience.

The Proof is in Our Patients

“I highly recommend this dental clinic as one of the best around. I chose them for my veneers and the entire process was smooth and pain-free. Recently, when I experienced severe tooth pain on their day off, Dr. Tate went out of his way to open the office after hours and address my discomfort which speaks volumes about his dedication. Both he and Jenna provided exceptional care that went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you two and everyone in that office.”

“My experience at Rochester Dental Clinic was the best dental experience I have ever had! Everyone from the front desk staff to Jenna, my hygienist, was amazing! Dr. Matt was outstanding - professional, knowledgeable and very personable. My dental assistant, Tammy, was warm and compassionate. Jenna did an outstanding job as my hygienist. She was thorough and kind. I highly recommend this office. They were absolutely amazing!”

- Lindsey S.

“In the past, I havee had anxiety seeing the dentist and I can tell you that this was by far the best dental experience I've had. Had a crown done and it was all done in a single visit. They 3d modeled my crown instead of having to have a mold made. Was the best ever! Front office and the assistants were the most positive too. I'm sold on them!”

- Wade B.

“Dr Tate and staff are top notch! They provide excellent patient care, are very thorough and provide a pleasant atmosphere each visit. Exceptional dental health is no doubt their goal. I would not hesitate to recommend my family or friends to call Rochester Dental Clinic for an appointment.”
