When your impacted wisdom teeth discovered, the dentist investigates the entire issue and suggest solutions. Later, your dentist recommends you to consult an oral surgeon to carry out the extraction. Once it is decided your teeth undergo examination, and the x-ray is taken.
Before the surgery starts, your surgeon will give local anaesthesia to numb the area around the tooth to execute the extraction. If you are panic, sedative injection will be allowed to relax for the surgery. General anaesthesia is used occasionally in rare cases.
If the tooth comes out through gum, it is easy to remove or is broken and removed in pieces. If not, a short cut is performed on the gum to remove the tooth. Also, a small piece of bone wrapping the tooth is removed. It will take less than 30 minutes and less painful.
Your dental surgeon seal the gum with stitches and dissolve the stitch after 7 to 10 days. You will be adviced to give pressure on your jaw. It allows the socket to fill blood clot, that helps in the healing process. Once all done with the procedure, follow the advice of your dentist and back for the checkup.
