What is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Wondering about Wisdom Tooth Extraction? Find out what it involves and why it’s necessary.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine dental procedure designed to remove the third set of molars located at the back of the mouth. These teeth often become impacted or cause crowding issues, leading to discomfort, infection, and other dental complications. The process typically begins with the administration of local anesthesia to numb the area, with the option of sedation for increased comfort during the surgery. The dentist or oral surgeon then carefully extracts the wisdom teeth by making an incision in the gum tissue, removing any obstructing bone, and extracting the tooth itself.

Following the extraction, patients receive post-operative care instructions to facilitate healing and manage any discomfort. This typically includes taking prescribed pain medication, getting plenty of rest, and adhering to a soft-food diet for a few days. Patients are advised to maintain good oral hygiene practices and to avoid strenuous activities that could disrupt the healing process. While some swelling and discomfort are normal during the recovery period, most individuals can resume their regular activities within a few days.

The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

Learn about the Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process
step-1
Consultation
You'll meet with Dr. Sinha at PS Dental in either Glastonbury or Bristol to discuss your dental history and the need for wisdom tooth extraction. X-rays may be taken to assess the position of your wisdom teeth.
step-2
Anesthesia
When undergoing extraction, local anesthesia is administered to numb the surrounding area, ensuring a pain-free procedure. This anesthesia provides comfort and alleviates discomfort during the extraction process, ensuring a smooth and efficient dental experience.
step-3
Extraction
Using specialized instruments, Dr. Sinha will carefully remove the wisdom tooth from its socket in your jawbone. The tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces for easier removal, especially if it's impacted or not fully erupted.
step-4
Closure
Once the tooth is extracted, Dr. Sinha will clean the extraction site and may place stitches to aid in healing. These stitches are typically dissolvable and will not need to be removed.
step-5

You'll be given instructions on how to care for the extraction site to promote healing and prevent infection. This may include avoiding certain foods, taking pain medication as prescribed, and using ice packs to reduce swelling.
step-6
Follow-up
Dr. Sinha and the team at PS Dental will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing progress and ensure everything is healing properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to your wisdom tooth extraction FAQs. Learn about the procedure, recovery time, potential risks, and aftercare tips to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties. Due to limited space in the jaw, they often become impacted, causing pain and oral health issues.
Extraction may be necessary if your wisdom teeth are impacted, causing pain, infection, or crowding. We recommend early evaluation to determine if extraction is needed to prevent complications.
At PS Dental, we prioritize patient comfort. We utilize anesthesia and sedation techniques to ensure a pain-free experience during the procedure. Post-operative discomfort can be managed with prescribed medication and proper aftercare instructions.
The duration of the procedure varies depending on the complexity of the case. On average, wisdom teeth extraction can take between 30 minutes to an hour per tooth. Our experienced team at PS Dental works efficiently to minimize time while prioritizing your safety.
After the procedure, some swelling and discomfort are normal. We advise patients to rest and avoid strenuous activities for a few days. Following our post-operative care instructions, including proper oral hygiene and diet modifications, promotes faster healing.
While complications are rare, as with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks. These may include infection, nerve damage, or dry socket. Our skilled team at PS Dental takes every precaution to minimize these risks and ensure your safety.
The cost of wisdom teeth extraction can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the extraction and insurance coverage. At PS Dental, we offer transparent pricing and work with patients to explore financing options to make treatment affordable.
Due to the effects of anesthesia and sedation, we advise patients to arrange for transportation home after the procedure. It’s essential to have a responsible adult accompany you to ensure your safety.
Following extraction, we recommend a soft diet consisting of foods like smoothies, soups, yogurt, and mashed potatoes. Avoiding hard, crunchy, or spicy foods helps prevent irritation to the surgical site and promotes healing.
While recovery time varies for each individual, most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. However, it’s crucial to avoid strenuous exercise and follow our post-operative instructions for optimal healing.

Had my cleaning done with Amanda who was incredibly thorough and such a pleasure to chat with. Had my cleaning done about 20 minutes after being shook by the little earthquake so my anxiety level was a little high. Amanda was gentle and very informative throughout the cleaning. She made me feel calm and relaxed in her care. Dr. Sinha then came in to check my X-rays and my teeth. I love that he takes his time and doesn’t rush through. He offers great explanation into his decision making process and I think he’s one the most honest dentists I have encountered. The energy in this practice is so positive and it was all around a great experience. They stay up to date with the newest advances in dental care and the office is super clean. I am happy to be a patient here. 💯 recommend to anyone who cares about their teeth and is looking for a great dentist. Thank you guys for being so awesome!❤️

I was in search of a new dentist after relocating to the area. Came across PS Dental and was very pleased with the overall service, quant office and service team. Amanda (hygienist) was very professional and her cleaning was painless. Morgan (front office) response time was beyond expectations and she was able to answer my many inquiries. 10/10 experience overall and I will be having my wife come over as a new patient hopefully soon!
