Surgical Extraction (Wisdom Tooth Or Any Other)

Surgical Extraction (Wisdom Tooth Or Any Other)

When a wisdom tooth is impacted, infected, or creating other dental problems, a dentist may perform a surgical extraction to remove it. In contrast to a simple extraction, which entails removing a tooth that is visible, a surgical extraction can call for making incisions in the gums and removing bone tissue to reach the impacted wisdom teeth. 

The treatment is normally carried out under local anesthesia, and the patient might be given pain medication as well as advice on how to care for themselves afterward in order to promote healing and lower the chance of complications like infection or dry socket.

What is the cost of Surgical Extraction for wisdom or any other tooth?

Surgical Extraction surgery costs in Pakistan can range from around 10,000– 30,000 PKR.

  • Using specialized tools, the tooth is delicately extracted.
