Wisdom tooth Questions
Dr Prateek Jain answers some of the common questions that we receive related to wisdom tooth extraction are :
Is it a painful procedure ?
A slight discomfort after the extraction is expected and normal and though anxious and scared initially but in last 10 years I have seen patients cope up very very well with the discomfort and all of them say the same thing “It’s not at all the way we were scared of it”
Why should the extraction be done,Can’t you prescribe some medicine for it?
An impacted or half erupted wisdom tooth can lead to a lot of problems.Some of them being not able to maintain the hygiene properly,recurrent pain in the wisdom tooth area,difficulty in chewing and swallowing.
All these symptoms will subside once you take some antibiotics but they will surely come back again in 3-4 months as the half erupted tooth is still there.
The only solution to these recurrent problems is to get the wisdom tooth extracted.
Q3. My dentist has told me that if I do not get the wisdom tooth removed it will spoil the teeth in front of it.Is it true?
Yes this is a very real possibility,as wisdom tooth being half erupted does not allow proper cleanliness and hygiene maintenance,this can lead to caries in the tooth in front of it and that can lead to a painful condition.Hence your dentist has rightly advised you about it.
Q4. Will there be stitches ?
In case we are removing the upper wisdom tooth,there is no need for stitches,however in case of lower wisdom tooth two or three stitches are needed to close the gums.
Q5. Will i need rest after wisdom tooth extraction?
No you do not require any bedrest of leave of absence from your work.
Q6. What are the charges of wisdom tooth surgery?
The charges vary from Rs 3500 to Rs 7000 depending on the complexity of the procedure,the amount of time that will be needed to remove it and from which Jaw the tooth is to be removed.
