Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Bankstown

If a wisdom tooth extraction is required to relieve a patient of pain it is also very important for them to understand how the procedure works. An oral surgeon or a facial surgeon can extract impacted or painful wisdom teeth.

If you are considering having all of your wisdom teeth removed at one sitting that you may also increase the risk of further complications. It is not uncommon that oral surgeons recommend the use of IV Sedation to lower the amount of stress on the patient during this type of procedure.

There are so many clinics that provide tooth extraction in Bankstown.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure

The night before a tooth extraction it is important to not eat or drink anything after midnight. This can prepare you in case the anesthetic used is one that can cause nausea and vomiting.

Unless IV Sedation is being used before beginning the procedure the dentist will apply a local anesthetic to the area directly around the tooth that is to be removed. As noted above if multiple extractions are planned it is quite possible that a form of general anesthetic may be used. This type of anesthesia will allow the patient to sleep through the procedure and make the surgeon's job a bit easier as well.

Removing a wisdom tooth requires the dental professional to open up the tissue around the gum and remove any bone that may be covering the tooth itself. Often the dentist may even have to cut or break the tooth into smaller fragments to make the removal process easier.
