Wisdom tooth extraction

The following symptoms may indicate that the wisdom teeth have erupted and surfaced, and should be removed before they become impacted -- meaning, the teeth have surfaced and have no room in the mouth to grow.

However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include pain, infection in the mouth, facial swelling and swelling of the gum line in the back of the mouth.

Most oral health specialists will recommend an immediate removal of the wisdom teeth, as early removal will help to eliminate problems, such as an impacted tooth that destroys the second molar.

According to the Australian Dental Association, third molar impaction is the most prevalent medical developmental disorder.

Wisdom tooth extraction surgery involves removing the gum tissue that presides over the tooth, gently detaching the connective tissue between the tooth and the bone, removing the tooth, and suturing the opening in the gum line.
