What diagnosis leads to Simple Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

The following are some common reasons for a simple wisdom tooth extraction:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

  • Crowding

  • Decay or infection

  • Gum disease 

In rare cases, wisdom teeth can form cysts or tumors that can cause damage to the jawbone or surrounding teeth. 

What is the procedure for Simple Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

The procedure for a simple wisdom tooth extraction typically involves the following steps:

  • The dentist or oral surgeon will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth to be extracted. In some cases, general anesthesia or sedation may be used to help the patient relax during the procedure.

  • Once the area is numb, the dentist or oral surgeon will use specialized instruments to loosen the tooth from its socket and carefully remove it. Depending on the position of the tooth, the dentist may need to make a small incision in the gum tissue to access it.

  • After the tooth is removed, the dentist will clean the socket and remove any remaining debris or fragments of the tooth.

  • The dentist may need to place stitches to help the gum tissue heal properly. These stitches are usually dissolvable and will not need to be removed.

  • The dentist will provide the patient with instructions on how to care for the extraction site to promote healing and prevent infection.

The length of the procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the extraction, but in most cases, a simple wisdom tooth extraction can be completed within an hour.
