A 31yr old female patient from the Maldives reported to our Dept. Of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at Richardsons Dental and Craniofacial Hospital with a complaint of radiating pain in the left-back region of her face. The pain was around her left ear and the area surrounding it. Her pain began after undergoing an extraction one year back in Male, Maldives. Upon examination we found an impacted lower and upper wisdom tooth with only partial cusps visible through the gums. A Cone Beam CT scan was done to ascertain the exact location of the impacted teeth with the nerves and the other structures. The surgery of wisdom tooth removal was performed under local anesthesia in the operation theatre with the help of laser and cautery under all vitals monitoring for patients safety. This reduces wisdom tooth removal postoperative pain and discomfort and also reduces the healing period.
