Sometimes, wisdom teeth aren’t able to develop properly. This can put you at risk for a number of oral health problems including decay, infection, damage to neighboring teeth and crowding. To avoid these potential problems form developing, you may elect to have your wisdom teeth removed. Before your surgery, you will have a series of dental x –rays taken to properly plan the extraction. The position of your wisdom teeth will be examined in order to avoid disturbing certain nerves in your jaw. On the day of your surgery, you will receive anesthetic to completely numb the area. In some situation, it may be recommended that you receive a general anesthetic so that you are asleep for the procedure. If the tooth has not fully broken through, small incisions are made and a portion of the gums are pulled back to access the tooth. If required, any bone that is covering the tooth is removed to make space for the extraction. In many cases, a wisdom tooth will first need to be separated into smaller section and then removed in pieces. Then, the area will be stitched to seal the gums and the healing process will begin.
