Q: Why is wisdom tooth removal necessary?
A: It is usually necessary because wisdom teeth tend to cause more harm than good. This is because they can become impacted and can cause problems like infections in the gums. If they do erupt, they could also cause dental issues because they are tough to clean.
Q: Will I be under sedation during the treatment?
A: Yes, you will be under a dental sedative during the treatment. However, the type of sedative used will be determined by the complexity of the situation.
Q: How long is the recovery?
A: The recovery process is about three to four days, but it could be longer if you don’t take advantage of the healing period. You need to rest and take good care of your mouth.
