Tooth And Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that removes a tooth from the mouth. Wisdom teeth are the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom. They are the last teeth to erupt, and they often do not have enough room to grow in properly. This can cause problems such as pain, infection, and crowding.

Wisdom teeth extraction is usually performed by a dentist or oral surgeon. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, which means that you will be awake but your mouth will be numb. The dentist or oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth. Then, they will use a variety of tools to remove the tooth.

After the tooth is removed, the dentist or oral surgeon will stitch the gum tissue closed. You may experience some pain and swelling after the procedure. Your dentist or oral surgeon will give you instructions on how to care for your extraction site and manage any pain or swelling.
