Wisdom Tooth Extraction in the Safest Way

Wisdom teeth are the last set of permanent teeth that erupt at the back of the mouth – two each on the upper and lower jaw. For some people, wisdom teeth encounter space deficit during the eruption process leading to partly erupted or irregularly positioned teeth. This is particularly common when the size of the teeth and jaw are not matching. Genetics can play a role here. Also, the time lag when the growth of the jaw ceases and the time of eruption of wisdom teeth can contribute to this.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The planning of extraction is based on a detailed clinical and radiographic evaluation. Usually, a 2D X-ray is only needed. But in the case of proximity to vital structures, a 3D x-ray might be required. Depending on the surgery procedure that will be needed, the oral surgeons will decide the type of anaesthesia to be administered. We will also ascertain your comfort levels before selecting the anaesthetic to be employed.

Local Anaesthesia: The oral surgeon or dentist will first numb the involved area with an anesthetic solution.

General Anaesthesia: For patients who are very apprehensive or who need multiple wisdom teeth extractions with or without other complex dental procedures we can even consider general anesthesia where the patient goes through the whole process with absolutely no stress.

A few things to look out for after the surgery:
  • Don’t drink through a straw as sucking may loosen the blood clots that are helping your socket heal
  • Avoid smoking as it can slow the healing process
  • Avoid frequent spitting and vigorous rinsing.
  • Do not brush too hard around the involved area
  • Taking painkillers containing acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) such as aspirin are not recommended since they can affect healing.
