Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure: What You Can Expect

Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure: What You Can Expect

During the impacted wisdom teeth removal procedure, your dentist will:

  1. Make an incision in your gum tissue to expose the infected tooth and bone
  2. Remove the bone that is blocking access to the root
  3. Divide the tooth into sections so that it becomes easier to remove in pieces
  4. Remove the wisdom tooth
  5. Clean the area of the removed tooth
  6. Stitch the wound, if necessary
  7. Place gauze over the extraction area to stop bleeding and help a blood clot form

Wisdom teeth removal becomes essential to prevent dental complications and problems that might damage your other healthy teeth. At our Reign Dental offices located in the Shoreline, Seattle and Milton, WA, you can get your wisdom teeth removed with ease and comfort. The wisdom teeth removal process takes around 45 minutes or less. Your dentist or oral surgeon will use anesthesia either local, general or IV sedation so that you don't feel the pain during the removal process. An impacted wisdom tooth is usually very painful and the removal procedure has a few additional steps to treat the affected bone and gums.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost

The cost of removing a wisdom tooth depends on a number of factors such as the number of teeth affected, positioning of the teeth, the type of anesthesia used and the level of impaction that will be unique in each case. During the initial consultation, your dentist will review your X-rays, do a complete examination and determine which type of anesthesia to use, before giving you an exact estimate. Dental insurance coverage for a wisdom teeth removal varies by the insurance policy and provider.
