The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

There are two different types of wisdom tooth removal – simple and surgical. The only way to know which one you will need is to allow one of our dentists to perform a thorough examination. Once we determine if your wisdom teeth have partially erupted or are impacted, we will determine which method to use.

For simple extractions, our team will use a dental elevator and dental forceps to remove each tooth. Once it is lifted from its socket, the tooth will be moved back and forth until it releases from the ligaments. For surgical extractions, we will need to make a small opening in the gums so that the impacted tooth is exposed. Careful to avoid much of the bone, we will separate the tooth into pieces and carefully extract each one.
