Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the 4 teeth at the back of the adult mouth. These may be surgically extracted if a tooth is decayed, damaged, crowded or beyond repair. X-rays may be required before the extraction process has begun. Wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to erupt in the mouth. These teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25.
Your wisdom tooth may also be coming out from a wrong angle and press against other teeth which cause problems in your jaw. Finally, it may be difficult to reach the back of your mouth with your toothbrush or dental floss resulting in cavities or gum disease.
Simple and Surgical Extraction
An anaesthetic will be delivered to numb the area of your tooth so that you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. In addition to making the area numb with local anesthetic, your surgeon may suggest sedation to allow you to be more comfortable during the procedure. A small incision will be made into the area for the dentist or oral surgeon. The bone around the tooth may also be removed before the extraction.
