Wisdom Tooth Removal FAQs

  • What exactly is a Wisdom Tooth?
    Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that typically emerge in our mouths between the ages of 17 and 30. They can erupt in functional positions and be used for chewing, but often, they need to be aligned (impacted) and may need to be removed if they cause problems.
  • What does "impacted wisdom tooth" mean?
    An impacted wisdom tooth is obstructed by gum, bone, or another tooth, either partially or entirely. A wisdom tooth is considered partially impacted when part of it has emerged through the gum.
  • What symptoms indicate a wisdom tooth infection (pericoronitis)?
    Common symptoms include:
    • Pain in the affected area, possibly extending to the lower jaw or neck.
    • Swelling and redness of the gum around the wisdom tooth.
    • Difficulty opening the mouth.
    • Pain when biting down near the impacted tooth.
    • A bad taste or odor in the mouth from the affected area.
    Untreated pericoronitis can lead to a severe infection.
  • Is an x-ray necessary for wisdom teeth removal?
    Most individuals require an OPG (Panoramic) X-ray, which we can perform at our clinic. This x-ray shows the impacted wisdom teeth and other critical structures. If the teeth's roots overlap with nerves, a more specialized cone beam CT scan, available at our clinic, may be needed.
  • What does the extraction procedure entail?
    The procedure may involve making an incision in your gum to expose the wisdom tooth and possibly removing a small amount of bone to facilitate the tooth's removal. The gum is then sutured with dissolvable stitches. During your initial consultation, your dentist will discuss the procedure, including risks and benefits.
  • Will the extraction be painful?
    The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so you'll be conscious but should not feel pain. If you do feel discomfort, signal the surgeon to stop; additional anesthesia will be administered. Sedation is an option for those who prefer it, often resulting in no memory of the procedure.
  • Can I have sedation during wisdom tooth extraction?
    Yes, sedation is available and considered very safe. A sedation assessment will be conducted before your procedure to explain everything.
  • How much time off work will I need after my wisdom teeth are removed?
    Recovery time varies, with many patients returning to work the next day. Typically, 1 to 5 days off work is sufficient for most people.
