Summer is here, which means you’re probably soaking in the sun and enjoying the outdoors. However, if you’re one of the millions who need their wisdom teeth removed each year, now is the perfect time! Wisdom teeth removal is nothing to put off because these 3rd molars can cause serious issues and pain. No worries – you can take advantage of the warmer months by completing this procedure. Read on to learn why the summer is the best time to get your wisdom teeth removed.

More Free Time!

Whether you’re on summer break, off from work, or don’t have any back-and-forth to school with your kids, this is typically the time of the year when people are less busy. This will give you a lot more time to relax and recover. Wisdom teeth extraction does require anesthesia and a short healing period. During the summer, you won’t have to worry about missing out on important classes or events for your surgery. Plus, if you have built-in vacation for work, this may be the perfect time to take a few days to rest after your procedure.

Easier Scheduling

Have you ever noticed that there are simply less people on the road in the summer? That’s because everyone is vacationing, camping, or just getting out of town. This not only frees up your own schedule, but it makes it easier to book your wisdom teeth removal at your preferred time – dentists are usually much more available during the summer.  

Recover & Relax at Your Own Pace

While the wisdom tooth procedure is painless, you will experience some slight discomfort during your recovery. Your dentist will always give you instructions and medication to manage your soreness. That’s another reason why many dentists recommend extraction in the summer. You can relax by the pool, or in a nice, air-conditioned room with all the time you need to heal. If you still have a busy schedule, or have limited time off, try booking your procedure on a Thursday or Friday so you can take the weekend to rest. The most important step you can take is to give yourself enough time to fully recover and you might as well do it while the weather is warm!

Does Your Teen Need Their Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Your son or daughter is the most important person in the world to you but face it – they may not be the most responsible. If you have a teen who needs their wisdom teeth removed, the summer will give you an opportunity to keep a watchful eye and help your loved one when needed.

Now that you know about the secret to a summer of smiles, what are you waiting for? Contact your dentist to take advantage of the beautiful weather and your free calendar.
