The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process
Most of the time, wisdom tooth removal is a routine procedure that usually takes about an hour to complete. A local anesthetic is given to numb the tooth, surrounding gum tissue and bone. When possible, the dentist uses forceps to extract the whole tooth. If the tooth is especially large or impacted, then it may need to be sectioned before removal. In this case, a small incision is made in gum tissue and the wisdom tooth is surgically extracted.At the conclusion, sutures are placed over the surgery site and you’re given time to relax and recover.
