When to be Removed

If teeth are impacted, swelling & tenderness/ pain many occur in the area of 3rd molar/back of the teeth.

Treatment

During wisdom tooth extraction, your dentist will be given an injection of Local Anesthesia to numb the tooth , surrounding area & makes an incision/cut in gum tissue to expose the tooth & bone. A small piece of the bone covering the teeth may also need to be removed & tooth may be cut into smaller parts to make it easier to remove through the opening.
