What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of molars to emerge in the back of the mouth. They typically appear in late adolescence or early adulthood and may cause issues if there isn't enough space for them to fully erupt.

Why might I need wisdom teeth removal?
Wisdom teeth may need to be removed if they are impacted (unable to fully emerge), causing pain, swelling, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth. Removal may also be necessary to prevent overcrowding, misalignment, or cyst formation.

How is wisdom teeth removal performed?
Wisdom teeth removal is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia. The oral surgeon makes an incision in the gum tissue, removes the tooth or teeth, and closes the surgical site with stitches as needed.

What can I expect during the recovery process?
After wisdom teeth removal, you may experience swelling, discomfort, and minor bleeding at the surgical site. Your oral surgeon will provide you with post-operative instructions, including guidelines for pain management, diet, oral hygiene, and activity restrictions to promote healing.

Is wisdom teeth removal painful?
While you may experience some discomfort during and after the procedure, wisdom teeth removal is generally not painful due to the use of local anesthesia and sedation. Your oral surgeon will take steps to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Are there any risks associated with wisdom teeth removal?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with wisdom teeth removal, including infection, nerve damage, dry socket (loss of blood clot), and complications from anesthesia. However, these risks are rare, and your oral surgeon will take precautions to minimize them.
