An oral surgeon or qualified dentist will perform wisdom teeth extraction surgery. First, anesthesia (usually IV anesthesia) is provided for the patient’s comfort.
Once the patient is under, the bone and tissue around the wisdom teeth are removed. This removal ensures the wisdom teeth around these areas can be clearly and effectively extracted. Next, the gums are sutured together with stitches, which generally aids in a faster recovery time and less bleeding.
Finally, the surgeon places gauze over the wound so a blood clot can form to control bleeding. Once the procedure is over, the patient will rest in the recovery room.
