... wisdom tooth removal. Many times that's a rite of passage for teenagers. I know I went through it, my kids went through it and as it is, when we do it here, we have the ability to sedate the patient. Obviously, we like to see them ahead of time so we can determine and discuss with them as well as the parent, what the procedure is going to be, how we're going to do it, and obviously, what the fee is as well.
When we do, do sedation, we have the youngster come in and we sedate them. We anesthetize them with a very long lasting anesthetic so that when they go home and they have their medications, the anesthesia is going to last for six, seven, eight hours. So they can get over that initial hump. And one thing I always like to make sure that the youngsters that we do see for wisdom teeth can get ice cream at least four times a day for the next week, because if they're going to go through something like this, I really feel they should get something good out of it.
And also the removal of wisdom teeth, especially for youngsters that have had orthodontics, it helps prevent much of the collapse of the orthodontics that has occurred. The teeth can build up a lot of pressure in the back and we can contribute to the complexity of the situation later on in life. And finally, by having wisdom teeth taken out as a youngster, teenage years, when the bone is relatively soft and relatively easy than say somebody who's in their mid fifties or sixties and we have gum disease around that tooth, adjacent to it and it has descended down and is involved the wisdom tooth, as a procedure is a lot more difficult and a lot more uncomfortable at that time.
