Dr. Grellner, a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon who rose to national prominence as a television personality and leading authority on wisdom teeth removal, now provides unique and highly effective pain-reducing techniques that allow patients to comfortably resume their routine activities almost immediately.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are four teeth that emerge from the back of each jaw corner. It is conventionally assumed that most people’s third molars begin to mature between the ages of 17 and 25. They’re believed to crowd out other teeth or cause dental decay, so many dentists and oral surgeons believe it’s better to treat them early and remove them as a preventative step: patients who choose to have them removed have more time to plan their lives and any “downtime” around the procedure. Furthermore, the risk for complications – infection, pain, and bleeding – increases as people get older.
However, Dr. Grellner points to an earlier and narrower time frame as the “sweet spot” for intervention – the brief period between the ages of 15 and 20 before the wisdom teeth roots finish growing. This window of opportunity – the precise timing of which varies considerably – allows for the least difficult and risky procedure and the swiftest recovery, due to the greater number of stem cells for healing in teens.
Furthermore, Dr. Grellner emphasizes that preventative treatment enables the surgeon to operate in a sterile environment, sealed by gum tissue – as opposed to one that is contaminated by the millions of bacteria in the saliva that can bathe a newly exposed wisdom tooth.
At Tampa Wisdom Teeth, wisdom teeth removal is performed under a special anesthetic technique, developed by Dr. Grellner, called QuickRecover. By employing specialized pumps, he can provide continuous microdoses of anesthetic throughout treatment rather than distinct intermittent doses – thereby customizing the dosage as the situation warrants. This approach minimizes post-anesthetic recovery time because the amount of anesthesia is adjusted to meet the individual’s needs. Rather than waiting many hours for the symptoms to wear off, patients can usually recover in as little as 10 to 20 minutes. Patients can avoid dizziness and nausea for longer periods of time with QuickRecover.
One patient commented about Dr. Grellner: “His skills are amazing. I had no post-op discomfort the three times he operated on me. Between him and his staff, you feel like you’re the only thing that matters to them.”
