What is Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Wisdom teeth removal is a surgical procedure to extract the third set of molars located at the back of your mouth. These teeth often emerge during late teens or early adulthood and can cause various dental problems due to lack of space. Removing wisdom teeth can prevent issues like overcrowding, misalignment, and infection. The procedure is typically performed under local or general anesthesia by an oral surgeon or dentist.

What to Expect


The wisdom tooth removal process begins with a consultation where X-rays are taken to assess the position and condition of the wisdom teeth. Before the procedure, local or general anesthesia is administered to ensure comfort during the surgery. The oral surgeon or dentist then makes an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and removes the wisdom tooth carefully. After extraction, the area is cleaned, and stitches may be placed to promote healing.
