The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

We’ll begin by taking a look at the wisdom teeth in question. In some cases, we may determine that the wisdom teeth aren’t causing any problems and can be kept. In the event that they do pose a threat to your oral health, it is best to have them taken out of your mouth as soon as possible.

If your wisdom teeth have managed to partially emerge from beneath your gums, we may be able to extract them with forceps as well as an instrument known as a dental elevator. For this type of extraction, the tooth or teeth in question will be gently rocked back and forth until they are loosened to the point where they can be taken out of the socket.

Impacted wisdom teeth will need to be removed via surgery. Rest assured that your mouth will be numbed for the sake of your comfort. Incisions will have to be made in your gum tissue, and it may be necessary for us to take the teeth out in sections.
