Wisdom tooth removal treatment is a routine procedure that’s performed at Richardsons dental and Craniofacial team. For simple impactions, we do the procedure under local anesthesia in the dental surgery cubicle, while for the major ones – especially all fours removal, we do it safely in the operating theater under general anesthesia or under sedation. This makes it very comfortable for the patient. The difficult for removing these third molars varies… for example – it could take from 10 minutes to 1 hour. Various classifications are there in literature and based on the individual case, the Wisdom tooth removal treatment plan is instituted for the patients’ safety and comfort. To get your wisdom tooth removed or to consult with Dr. Sunil Richardson and his team directly, visit the hospital in Nagercoil, TamilNadu, India.
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in the back of your mouth, which usually comes in between the ages of 17 and 25. They are spotted on X-rays.
Most people have them removed for one of these reasons:
- They are impacted – because they’re so far back in your mouth, where wisdom teeth may not come in normally. They can be trapped in your jawbone or gums, which can be painful.
- The tooth comes in at the wrong angle – They may press against your other teeth.
- Your mouth isn’t big enough – Your jaw has no room for an extra set of molars.
- You have cavities or gum disease – You may not be able to reach your wisdom teeth with your toothbrush or dental floss.
