Comfort and Precision: Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. While some people may have sufficient space for these teeth to erupt normally, others may experience complications due to various factors such as lack of space, improper alignment, or impaction. When wisdom teeth do not have enough room, they cause issues including severe pain, gum infection, gum disease, tooth decay, and even damage to nearby teeth.

If you're experiencing symptoms such as severe pain, swelling, or a bad taste in your mouth, it may indicate wisdom tooth problems. Don't hesitate to contact Innova Dental for a thorough evaluation our team will guide you through every step of the process. Trust us to restore your oral health and alleviate any discomfort caused by problematic wisdom teeth. Whether it's upper or lower wisdom teeth, impacted or partially erupted, our team is equipped to handle all cases with precision and care.

Welcome to Innova Dental, where we believe in proactive solutions for optimal oral health. Our approach to wisdom teeth extraction combines innovation and expertise to address a range of conditions and ensure the well-being of our patients.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

When wisdom teeth fail to fully emerge or grow in at an angle, they can become impacted, leading to pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. Our extraction procedures effectively remove impacted wisdom teeth, preventing further complications and promoting oral health.

Wisdom teeth can exert pressure on surrounding teeth as they attempt to erupt, causing crowding and misalignment. By removing impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth, we can alleviate crowding and create space for proper alignment, reducing the risk of orthodontic issues.

Impacted wisdom teeth can trap food particles and bacteria, leading to infection and inflammation known as pericoronitis. Extraction removes the source of infection, preventing its spread and restoring oral health.

Wisdom teeth can sometimes develop cysts or tumors, which can cause damage to surrounding teeth and tissues if left untreated. Extraction of affected wisdom teeth is often necessary to remove these abnormal growths and prevent further complications.

Damage to Adjacent Teeth

Impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth can exert pressure on adjacent teeth, increasing the risk of damage such as decay, fractures, or root resorption. By removing problematic wisdom teeth, we can protect the integrity of surrounding teeth and preserve oral health.

The Benefits of Wisdom Tooth removal

Group 543.png (22) (1)

Wisdom teeth often cause discomfort, especially when they become impacted or infected. Extraction provides relief from pain and discomfort, allowing you to enjoy improved oral health and overall well-being.

By removing problematic wisdom teeth, you can prevent a range of dental issues such as overcrowding, misalignment, decay, and damage to adjacent teeth. This proactive approach helps maintain the integrity of your smile and reduces the need for future dental interventions.

Impacted wisdom teeth can trap food particles and bacteria, leading to infection and inflammation. Extraction removes the source of infection, preventing its spread and reducing the risk of complications such as abscesses and gum disease.

Wisdom teeth that do not properly erupt may grow at an angle, exerting pressure on nearby teeth and causing them to shift out of alignment. This can result in bite problems, difficulty chewing, and an increased risk of dental issues. By removing wisdom teeth that pose a threat to surrounding teeth, patients can protect the alignment and integrity of their existing dentition.

After wisdom teeth extraction, many patients experience improved comfort and function when eating, speaking, and smiling. By eliminating the discomfort caused by problematic wisdom teeth, you can enjoy a higher quality of life and greater confidence in your smile.

Understanding Risks and Complications of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Before undergoing wisdom tooth extraction, it's essential to be aware of the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure. While it is generally safe, complications can occur in some cases. At Innova Dental, we prioritize patient safety and ensure that you are fully informed about the potential risks before proceeding with extraction.



One of the most common complications of wisdom tooth extraction is infection. Bacteria can enter the extraction site, leading to inflammation, pain, and swelling. 


Dry Socket

Dry socket occurs when the blood clot that forms in the extraction site becomes dislodged or dissolves prematurely. This can expose the underlying bone and nerves, causing intense pain and delaying the healing process. 



Some patients may experience excessive bleeding after wisdom tooth extraction, especially if they have a bleeding disorder or are taking blood-thinning medications.

Jaw Stiffness and Swelling

After wisdom tooth extraction, some patients may experience temporary jaw stiffness and swelling, which can affect eating, speaking, and overall comfort. 

Aftercare Instructions


To ensure a smooth healing process and avoid any discomfort, it's essential to follow these care instructions diligently.

Post-Operative Care

  • Consume soft foods during the initial days to ease chewing and prevent irritation.
  • Apply an ice pack to the outside of your jaw to reduce swelling. Use it intermittently for 20 minutes at a time.
  • Take prescribed pain medication as directed to manage any post-operative discomfort effectively.
  • Rinse mouth gently with warm salt water after meals to keep the extraction site clean and promote healing.
  • Refrain from using straws as the suction can dislodge blood clots and delay the healing process.

What to Avoid

  • Avoid hard and crunchy foods that may irritate the extraction site or cause discomfort.
  • Refrain from smoking or using tobacco products as they can increase the risk of complications.
  • Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages during the initial days of recovery
  • Refrain from touching the extraction site with your fingers or tongue to avoid introducing bacteria and causing infection.
  • Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments at Innova Dental to ensure proper healing and address any concerns promptly.

Navigating the Process

Before the extraction procedure, meet our dentists for an initial consultation. A thorough examination of wisdom teeth using advanced imaging technology to assess their position, size, and any potential complications is conducted. 

Treatment Planning

The plan will outline the details of the extraction procedure, including the anaesthesia or sedation options available to ensure comfort during the procedure. Instructions on pre-operative preparations and what to expect on the day of extraction is provided.

Anaesthesia Administration

On the day of extraction, our team will administer ensure you remain comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. Depending on preference and the complexity of the extraction, options may include local anaesthesia to numb the extraction site, intravenous sedation for relaxation, or general anaesthesia for complete unconsciousness.

Extraction Procedure

Once comfortably sedated, our skilled dentists will begin the extraction process. Using precision instruments and techniques, the wisdom teeth from their sockets in the jawbone will be carefully removed. Our goal is to minimize trauma to surrounding tissues while ensuring the complete removal of the tooth to prevent future complications.

Post-Operative Care

After the extraction is complete, we'll provide with detailed instructions on post-operative care to promote optimal healing and minimize discomfort. This may include guidelines for managing swelling and pain, as well as recommendations for diet and oral hygiene during the recovery period.

Recovery and Follow-Up

The recovery period following wisdom tooth extraction typically lasts several days to a week. It's essential to follow post-operative instructions closely and avoid activities that may interfere with healing, such as smoking or strenuous physical exertion. We'll be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore common queries about Teeth Extraction.

Wisdom teeth extraction is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort during the procedure. While some discomfort and swelling may occur after the extraction, it can be managed with pain medication and proper post-operative care instructions provided by your dentist.

The recovery process after wisdom teeth extraction can vary depending on factors such as the number of teeth removed, the complexity of the extraction, and individual healing abilities. Most patients experience mild discomfort and swelling for a few days after the procedure, but symptoms typically subside within a week or two.

Like any surgical procedure, wisdom teeth extraction carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, dry socket, nerve damage, and complications related to anesthesia. However, these risks are relatively rare and can be minimized by following your dentist's pre-operative and post-operative instructions carefully.

Temporary bad breath or a foul taste in the mouth is normal during the initial days following extraction. Maintaining proper oral hygiene, including gentle brushing and rinsing with salt water, can help alleviate this issue as the healing process progresses.
