What to Expect During a Wisdom Tooth Extraction

After we have determined that someone’s wisdom teeth need to come out, the procedure will take the following steps:

  • We’ll start by numbing the treatment area using local anesthetic.
  • Any gum or bone tissue that is still encapsulating a tooth will be removed.
  • Once we can reach the tooth, it will be extracted, usually in pieces.
  • The treatment site will be closed with self-dissolving stitches.

Afterward, a patient will experience a little bleeding and swelling, but they should be able to resume their normal diet and daily routine in less than a week.
