Step-by-Step Process of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

  • Step 1: Planning - An X-ray will be used to evaluate and determine the exact steps required
  • Step 2: Anaesthesia - local anaesthetics are injected to ensure a pain-free procedure and keep the patient relaxed
  • Step 3: Wisdom Tooth Removal - a small incision will be made in the gum, possibly cutting the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal. Your doctor or oral surgeon will widen the tooth socket before the wisdom tooth extraction. The time of the procedure varies on patients, which will be discussed with your dentist to explain procedures. If it is a complicated case, the removal would take more than 20 minutes.
  • Step 4: Closure - dissolving stitches will close the gum which would last 7-10 days. To prevent wisdom tooth pain, antibiotics may be prescribed to also avoid any infections.

Why Should You Have Your Wisdom Tooth Removed?

Your dentist will examine through X-ray if your wisdom teeth are not erupting normally. If not treated or extracted immediately, an abnormally growing wisdom tooth could lead to an infection called pericoronitis. Here are the most common cases why wisdom tooth extraction is recommended:

  • Impacted teeth – Your teeth are trapped in your jawbone or gums which could cause a lot of pain.
  • Wrong angle – Your teeth are pressing against your other teeth.
  • Small mouth – Your jaw does not have any room for new teeth to come out.
  • Cavities/gum disease – Your wisdom teeth acquired cavities or the gum around caught some disease because the area is not reached with toothbrush or dental floss.

What Happens When A Wisdom Tooth is Not Removed?

More than just alleviating the wisdom tooth pain, here are the other reasons why wisdom tooth extraction for some certain cases is necessary:

  • Can cause damage to other teeth – If your extra set of molars are pushing against your other teeth, it can cause further damage or bite problems.
  • Jaw damage – If wisdom tooth is not extracted, cysts can form around the new teeth which can damage your nerves and hollow out your jawbone.
  • Swollen gums – If your gums are inflamed, this could create pockets between teeth that would be an area for bacteria to grow and lead to cavities, swelling, and stiffness of your jaw.
  • Alignment issues – If your wisdom teeth are impacted, your other teeth may become crowded. To fix this and apply orthodontic treatments, wisdom teeth may need to be removed.
  • Sinus Problems – There is a link with wisdom teeth problems to sinus pain and congestion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Even without feeling any pain, some people opt to have wisdom tooth extraction as a precautionary measure to avoid the potential damage since the growth of wisdom teeth can pose risk to adjacent teeth.

In addition, one of the reasons why even healthy third molars are removed early on is because the bones in your mouth get harder and the teeth become harder to remove in the future. Healing is also faster when you have your wisdom teeth removal at a younger age. You should consult with your specialist dentist as soon as you find your wisdom teeth erupting, so certain dental recommendations can be addressed immediately.

It is your personal decision whether or not you want to have all teeth extracted in one appointment. Many patients prefer to have all their wisdom teeth extracted so they only pay for one anesthetic administration. Removal surgeries with multiple teeth, however, would require more time to recover than the extraction of a single tooth.

Plan your schedule days before the procedure itself. Make sure you are well-rested and free from any kind of stress. Before your actual wisdom teeth removal in Dubai, your oral surgeon will speak with you about the procedure itself and discuss the following concerns:

  • Condition of tooth/teeth (impacted, wrong angle, overcrowded, etc.)
  • Your health history
  • Existing medications or food supplements you take on a regular basis
  • Type of anesthesia that will be applied
  • Your personal feeling about the procedure

Make sure to ask your dentist all the questions you need to know before the day of your appointment.

If a local anesthetic has been applied by your dentist, it is easy for you to go back to your usual activities immediately after the wisdom tooth removal. However, if general anesthesia or IV sedation was applied, you may need to have someone to drive you home. Mild swelling and discomfort is normal for a few days, as your mouth would need weeks to completely heal from the wisdom tooth extraction.

  • Do not brush your teeth on the same surgery. If you must brush, remember to avoid brushing over the blood clots. Rinse your mouth gently, preferably with salt water.
  • Eat soft foods so you don’t overwork your jaw and teeth. Avoid crunchy
  • Drink plenty of water. Don’t drink using straw as it may force the blood clots to open.
  • Take prescribed medications and use an ice pack to ease the pain and curb the swelling.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • If you feel feverish or if your pain and swelling does not subside, contact your dentist.
