What happens during your Wisdom tooth extraction?
Prior to the surgery your dentist will discuss with you the procedure and will let you know what to expect during and after the procedure. A local anaesthetic will be given to numb the area around the wisdom tooth so you do not feel any pain. To remove the wisdom tooth, your dentist will remove the gum tissue or bone over your tooth. The wisdom tooth is either extracted or cut in to small pieces to make way for easier removal. Stitches may be required after the extraction. The dentist will advise if all of the wisdom teeth can be removed in a single or multiple sitting.
