Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Oral and Maxillofacial Treatments

Wisdom teeth are the last four teeth to erupt in a person’s mouth during their lifetime. During its eruption, the majority of people experience excruciating pain. The main causes of pain are decay caused by complexity while brushing or smaller spaces during the eruption. The impacted tooth is either removed or treated, depending on the situation.

Why Wisdom tooth removal?

  • Wisdom teeth may not come in normally because they are so far back in the mouth. They can become stuck in the jawbone or gums, causing pain.
  • If they approach from the wrong direction. It's possible that they'll brush up against the other teeth.
  • You don't have enough space in your mouth. An extra set of molars would be impossible to accommodate in the jaw.
  • Your toothbrush or dental floss may not be able to reach your wisdom teeth, resulting in cavities or gum disease.

Wisdom tooth removal process

1. You will be given an infusion of anesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding area before having your wisdom teeth removed. If you are particularly nervous about the procedure, our dentist or specialist may administer a narcotic to help you relax. For the most part, this will be an infusion into your arm. Shrewdness tooth extraction rarely requires the use of a general sedative.

2. The wisdom tooth will be extracted when you experience numbness in your jaw and cheek area. You will not feel any discomfort while the tooth is being extracted. However, you may feel a small amount of pulling pressure. To stop the bleeding, the dentist will apply medicated gauze to the extracted wound.

The numbness may last 30 minutes to 2 hours after the extraction. Following the extraction, you may experience little or no discomfort. Our doctor may advise you to stop chewing on that side of your mouth. Apart from that, you can go about your daily routine.

Things to follow after wisdom tooth removal
