Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The wisdom teeth come in after permanent, adult teeth have grown in your mouth. The average age they appear is 20 years old and they are the teeth in the mouth found in the back corners. Some people may never have problems with their wisdom teeth. For others, they may need to be removed as a preventative measure.
Why have it done?
Getting your wisdom teeth taken out is often more complicated than a normal tooth extraction. This is because it is usually a preventative measure to circumvent problems with these teeth growing in at a wrong angle, overcrowding if the mouth doesn’t have enough room, and to ensure that the teeth don’t become impacted. Dentists ensure your wisdom teeth extraction was a smooth procedure.
What happens during a wisdom teeth extraction?
If our dentist must remove more than one wisdom tooth at a time, you’ll most likely receive regular freezing. Teeth extractions are outpatient procedures so you’ll go home the same day of surgery. However, you’ll be expected to rest for the remainder of the day. You’ll also have gauze covering the extraction sites which will need to refresh every few hours.
