Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are your third molars present in the upper and lower jaw. They are four in number and present next to second molars. If you have wisdom teeth and they are not able to erupt in proper position or are impacted inside the bone, we recommend you come in to see us at Lucknow Dental for an examination to determine whether they will cause problems.

Wisdom teeth can become impacted when they emerge and there is little to no space for them. If they become impacted then they may cause you problems or pain especially if you are run down or if you are stressed.

Problems with your wisdom teeth can be dormant for a long period of time; these may or may not be noticeable.

Pain caused by wisdom teeth may lead to infection. Wisdom Tooth Infection symptoms include the following:

Symptoms of Impacted teeth

1. Reddened, inflamed gum alongside the wisdom tooth

2. Swelling

3. Soreness

4. Pain

5. Pus from the gum line

6. Difficulties with opening your mouth and swallowing

7. radiating pain in ear or temple region

8. Fever

Upon attending an appointment, it is important you tell your dentist at Lucknow Dental your entire medical history and inform them as to whether you are taking any kind of medication.

What to expect from wisdom teeth removal?

The wisdom tooth extraction is done under Local anaesthesia by specialist oral surgeons. It may involve bone cutting and placement of sutures to close the flap.

It will take about a week or two to recover from a wisdom tooth extraction procedure. Your dentist or oral surgeon will advise you on the best ways to care for yourself during this time, but there are a few tips that most people can use, regardless of your circumstances.

Precautions after wisdom tooth removal?

You may want to apply ice packs to your jaw, as this can help to reduce any swelling. Over-the-counter pain medication is usually enough to reduce discomfort, but your dentist may prescribe antibiotics if you have had a complicated surgery.

Some bleeding is to be expected for the first few hours (your dentist will supply you with spare cotton gauze), but if it continues for 24 hours or more you should talk to your dentist/surgeon.

It’s a good idea to prepare some soft meals for the following few days, and to stock up on nutritious items such as smoothie ingredients – you may not be able to chew on the site of the wisdom tooth removal until it’s begun to heal.


And since the incision area is easily irritated, you should also avoid exercise, drinking through a straw and smoking for the first day or two. Salt water washes are also helpful for encouraging the wound to heal and lowering your risk of infection.

No use of negative pressure like spitting or coughing should be avoided . Use of straws, tea, coffee and fizzy drinks should be avoided.

Our experienced dentists will also advise you on any post-procedure care for your specific situation. Talk to our Lucknow dental team if you have any further questions or concerns about wisdom tooth removal.


Why do wisdom teeth come out?

Wisdom teeth grow in behind your back teeth but not everyone has space for them. They can also erupt in ways that cause other problems for your teeth or gums.

For example, some people’s mouths simply don’t have enough room for these teeth. For others, they will grow in at an angle that pushes other teeth out of the way, causing crowding, overlapping and pain.

In some cases, you may not need any teeth out at all but, in others, anywhere from one to all four will need to be removed to maintain good oral health.

It could be your dentist who first mentions that the teeth will need to be extracted after spotting a future issue during an examination or an x-ray. However, your first indication may be pain in the back of your mouth, as some teeth will become infected and impacted as they start to erupt.


What happens during a wisdom tooth extraction?

The first step may be a local anaesthetic to numb the areas of extraction (similar to the process of a standard filling or tooth removal).

Once your oral surgeon or dentist has ensured you can’t feel anything around the site, they will start the wisdom tooth removal. If the tooth hasn’t yet erupted from the gum, they will have to create a cut to access it. They will then pull out the tooth, sometimes breaking it into smaller pieces to make the extraction easier.

Afterwards, they will place stitches in the hole left behind. Most dentists these days use dissolvable thread, which naturally disappears after a few days so that you don’t have to make a return visit to have them removed once the wound has healed. They will place cotton pads over the wounds to minimise any bleeding, which you will keep in your mouth for an hour or so after the procedure.
