Painless Wisdom Tooth Extraction(Removal)

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth. At Dr. Khullar’s Dental Clinic, our main goal is to preserve and keep your natural teeth strong and healthy for life.. Our team has specialized Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons who perform all procedures in dealing with conditions related to wisdom tooth extraction and other jaw-related disorders.

Painless Wisdom Tooth Extraction

At Dr. Khullar’s Dental Clinic, we do not advise wisdom tooth extraction if they are correctly positioned and do not cause any discomfort. However, if there is impaction or crowding, our dentist may recommend a wisdom tooth extraction. Tooth Extraction Surgery is a mostly single sitting session that is carried out under local anesthesia to ensure painless treatment. At Dr. Khullar’s dental clinic, Prof. Dr. Kapil Khullar, having worked at AIIMS & with 35 years of post graduate clinical experience, ensures that your wisdom tooth removal is absolutely painless. We follow the best of sterilization and asepsis protocol to ensure that your wisdom tooth removal is absolutely painless and atraumatic. The dentist will guide you through the post-treatment care instructions to ensure a speedy recovery.

What Causes an Impacted Wisdom Tooth?

Mostly, wisdom teeth become impacted because it is the last tooth to enter the oral cavity and by then your jaw doesn’t have enough space for it to emerge. Sometimes, partial impaction is seen when the tooth grows in the wrong direction.

How is an Impacted Wisdom Tooth Diagnosed?

We have an in-house OPG and CT scan machine with which X-ray images are taken and a thorough examination of your mouth is done before making a treatment plan. An X-ray shows whether your teeth are impacted and if it has damaged other teeth and bone. If your teeth are impacted, our dentist is going to discuss with you the benefits and risks of surgical extraction.

What are the Symptoms?

Impacted teeth won’t cause any problems for some patients, while others might show obvious symptoms. Keeping a partially impacted wisdom tooth clean is difficult, they can also cause food to become trapped which can lead to tooth decay. For some people, a partially impacted tooth is very painful. If the tooth becomes infected or causes other issues, you may have symptoms such as:

  • Pain or swelling around the jaw
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • An unpleasant taste in your mouth
  • Problems opening your mouth

In other cases, the affected tooth may never break through the gums. This is known as a fully impacted wisdom tooth.

How are Impacted Wisdom Teeth Treated?

  • If your impacted wisdom teeth cause symptoms or dental problems, your dentist may suggest a surgical extraction. As part of the procedure, your doctor will use local anesthesia to numb that area and relieve you of all the pain and discmofort.

  • The entire surgery usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes. Sometimes the procedure may take longer time if the tooth is completely impacted and buried within your gums or jawbone. Occasionally after the procedure, a suture is placed that helps in healing. An ice pack is then provided by the clinic to help with faster healing and decrease any mild discomfort if any.

Frequently Asked Questions​

No, depending on the complexity of the extraction different aesthetic options can be administered during the procedure which will minimize the pain and discomfort during the extraction.

The average recovery time is about 1-2 days and even during this time, your daily routine will not be affected.

After your tooth is removed, well ask you to stick to soft foods and liquids for about a day. Avoid chewy, crunchy, sharp, and sticky foods until youre fully healed.

No, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed – its very subjective and based on the dental situation of each individual patient. Typically, wisdom teeth do NOT need to be removed if theyre healthy, have fully erupted, are positioned correctly and bite properly with the opposing teeth, and are able to be properly cleaned and flossed in a patients daily hygiene practices.

Every case varies because the treatment is dependent on the position and complexity of each tooth. For more information on wisdom teeth costs, please contact our front desk.
