Oral Surgery For Wisdom Teeth
If you experience pain because of an impacted wisdom tooth or teeth, then they need to be extracted. Wisdom teeth extraction is a relatively simple procedure.
Step 1: At the start of the procedure, the mouth will be numbed a local anesthetic. If you are particularly anxious, a light sedative such as nitrous oxide(laughing gas), or an oral sedative may be used.
Step 2: In some wisdom teeth extractions, a small incision in the gum must be made to cut the tooth into smaller pieces in order for them to be removed. The duration of the procedure will vary from patient to patient.
Step 3: After they are extracted, swelling and discomfort may be experienced, which usually goes away after a few days.
