Your SurgeryWisdom teeth are typically removed by out-patient surgery. The surgery itself last about an hour, depending on the circumstances.
Erupted: It is possible to extract teeth with forceps and other instruments used for this specific technique.
Below gums: An incision will be made to expose the tooth/teeth. After extraction, stitches will be used to close the opening, and aid the healing process. If bone is covering the teeth, the bone will have to be removed first.
After the surgery, you will spend some time in recovery to allow the anesthesia to wear off, and ensure you're in good enough condition to leave.
