It is very unusual to have two sets of wisdom teeth - are you sure? Removal is only required if problems occur and the teeth do not erupt normally. After surgery, there is commonly pain, swelling, bruising and rarely tingling or numbness in lip, chin, tongue which us usually transient. The difficulty of the surgery depends on the position of the teeth, best assessed in the clinic and by radiography (X-Ray). Most importantly, don't worry. Wisdom tooth removal is the most common surgical procedure carried out, which means surgeons are very good at even the more difficult cases. Dr Nicholas Manning BDS Glasg MFDS (RCSEng) If you have an extra set of wisdom teeth, there are good chances that your mouth has more room for the dentist of the surgeon to work and remove them. As Dr Nicholas said, you will experience a few days of discomfort, and you will have pain killers and maybe antibiotics to take. You will have some swelling, but after a week, you will feel the discomfort much less.

Extraction of a wisdom tooth will involve several codes. You will probably need a brief exam to determine how bad the tooth/teeth are, anesthesia/medication and the actual surgery. You can find a list of dental codes at the Related Link. The ones you are specifically asking about are as follows: D7220 removal of impacted tooth - soft tissue D7230 removal of impacted tooth - partially bony D7240 removal of impacted tooth - completely bony D7241 removal of impacted tooth - completely bony, with unusual surgical complications

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal is minimally invasive surgery. This is the use of robotics to perform surgery. However, gallbladder removal can also be done through a surgical incision. This would be considered invasive surgery.
