Wisdom teeth, also called as the third molars are the last teeth to erupt on both sides in upper and lower jaws. They usually erupt during teenage or early twenties.

When do need a wisdom tooth extraction?
In addition to the problems mentioned above, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to more grave complications and diseases. While there are many opinions for the benefits of wisdom tooth extraction, here are the top reasons to help you make an informed choice.
Consult with an Oral Surgeon
The decision to remove the third molar is not always clear. Without extraction, there can be recurrent infection and pain that will require extensive treatment, medications and more. A tooth extraction is a routine dental practice. The oral surgeon in dental hospital will recommend you an anesthesia for the entire procedure. This can include local anesthesia, general anesthesia and others.
Post treatment procedure
After surgery, you may be asked to bite down softly on a piece of gauze for 30 to 45 minutes after you leave the office, to limit any bleeding that may occur. Swelling and tenderness in the face and neck are common, as is bruising. Ice packs and pain medications prescribed by the dentist or oral surgeon will help. You should call your dentist if you have prolonged or severe pain, swelling, bleeding or fever. If you have any concerns before or after the procedure, contact your oral surgeon.
Complications of wisdom tooth extraction
Although rare, you may develop a painful dry socket. This happens when the blood clot that’s supposed to form after surgery doesn’t form properly or becomes dislodged from the socket and exposes bone. In such cases you are advised to visit your dentist as soon as possible.
