Wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure that is often necessary when the wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, cause pain, infection, or other oral health problems. Wisdom teeth typically appear in the late teens or early twenties and may need to be surgically removed if they are impacted, or have no space to emerge properly. The procedure is typically performed under local or general anesthesia and involves carefully extracting the tooth from the jawbone. Patients may experience some discomfort and swelling after the procedure, but following the dentist's aftercare instructions can help to manage these symptoms and promote healing.
