WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION
Don’t worry, we’ll take care of it.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in our jaw and they come through at the back of the mouth behind the last standing teeth.
If you’re told that your wisdom teeth are “impacted”, it means that there is not enough space for them to grow into the jaw in a normal position or when they erupt at an angle or in an unexpected location. The Dental Roots is a Speciality Centre when it comes to tooth extraction in Gurgaon and South Delhi.

What are the symptoms?
Impacted teeth won’t cause any problem to some patients, while others might show obvious symptoms. Keeping a partially impacted wisdom tooth clean is difficult, they can also cause food to become trapped which can lead to tooth decay. For some people, a partially impacted tooth is very painful. If the tooth becomes infected or causes other issues, you may have symptoms such as:
- pain or swelling around the jaw
- red, swollen, or bleeding gums
- bad breath
- an unpleasant taste in your mouth
- problems opening your mouth
In other cases, the affected tooth may never break through the gums. This is known as a fully impacted wisdom tooth.

How are impacted wisdom teeth treated?
If your impacted wisdom teeth cause symptoms or dental problems, your dentist may suggest a surgical extraction which is usually an outpatient procedure. You can go home the same day. As part of the procedure, your doctor may use anesthetic drugs to induce a type of anesthesia, such as:
- local anesthesia to numb your mouth
- sedation anesthesia to relax you and block pain
- general anesthesia to make you sleep and not feeling anything during the procedure
The entire surgery usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes. Sometimes the procedure may take longer time if the tooth is completely impacted and buried within your gums or jawbone.
Occasionally after the procedure a suture is placed that helps in healing. An ice pack is been provided by the clinic for decreasing the post extraction swelling.
Recovering from wisdom tooth extraction
Most people can get back to their normal activities a few days after surgery. It takes up to six weeks for your mouth to completely heal.For about a 4 to 5 days, soft food will be suggested by the dentist.
After surgery, you may experience some pain, bleeding, and swelling. Your doctor will give you specific instructions for managing discomfort, such as taking pain medications and using cold compresses.
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.

A blood clot forms in that area to protect the bone and nerves underneath. If that clot becomes dislodged or aggravated, it will cause the bone and nerve to be exposed to air, fluids and food, causing an infection – or a dry socket.
Dry socket can happen three to four days after your wisdom teeth are pulled. It causes pain and bad breath. It is important to flush the area and discuss any symptoms with your dentist.
