You’ll need to get your wisdom teeth removed if they do not have enough space to grow (impacted), causing pain, inflammation, or other dental issues. Ontario Dental Center is a reputable center that can take care of all your dental issues and tooth extraction is among our areas of expertise. Read on to understand what wisdom tooth extraction is and what to expect during and after the procedure.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical operation that involves the removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are the last molars in all four quadrants.
Even if the affected wisdom teeth aren’t causing problems now, some oral surgeons may recommend extraction to avoid future problems.
Characteristics of impacted wisdom teeth include:
During the process, the dental surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the troubled tooth, remove the bone blocking access, and remove the impacted tooth. He will then clean the extraction site and ensure it’s free of any debris, tooth pieces, or bone. He will then stitch or place a gauze over the area to control bleeding and promote healing. He will also provide instructions to follow, including how to manage pain, how to clean your mouth, the preferred diet, and things to avoid until healing is achieved.
