Often referred to as the third molar, wisdom tooth can be quite painful. They usually appear between the ages of 17-25 but can happen later too. These occur because the final set of molars appears in the late teens. Some molar teeth can be quite harmless but others are painful. In such cases the wisdom tooth removal treatment is imperative. In such cases a dentist would examine your teeth and check for the signs of other teeth too. Procedures like x-ray are implemented to check the precise location and also the depth of the teeth. The dentist conducts a pre-extraction exam to ensure that the procedure is done with ease. The wisdom tooth extraction process duration usually ranges from 30-45 minutes. The dentist would apply a local anaesthesia here to manage the pain. He would then extract the tooth in small sections rather than just one tooth together. This helps to reduce the bleeding. In case the tooth has deeper roots a minor dental surgery may be required, which takes about an hour. You will be released the same day. The Wisdom Tooth Removal recovery time is about 2-3 days. After the treatment has been done you will feel no pain in the area where the tooth was. Some antibiotic or gel maybe prescribed for post recovery healing.
