The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

When meeting with your dentist to discuss wisdom tooth extractions, diagnostic imaging will help to produce high-resolution images for clearer, more accurate treatment planning. Once it is decided that you will move forward with treatment, we will determine if you require a simple or surgical procedure.

Simple procedures are recommended when wisdom teeth have partially erupted and can be completed using specialized tools that are designed to elevate the tooth from its socket so it can easily be removed. A surgical procedure requires a more invasive approach that involves making an incision in the gums to expose the impacted wisdom tooth. With careful movement, the tooth is then removed in pieces to ensure a safer and more comfortable process.

When finished, the sockets are closed, and clean gauze is used to stop any bleeding. You will receive detailed instructions that are to be used to avoid dry sockets and ensure effective healing.
