Wisdom tooth extraction requires an oral surgeon when the wisdom tooth is compacted, or when the area around the tooth is infected.

A surgical extraction of a wisdom tooth (or teeth) is common with most young adults. During this type of extraction, an oral surgeon will cut into the gum line to expose the tooth, from which point the extraction is performed much in the same way as a simple tooth extraction. Prior to wisdom tooth extraction, the dental office will take a panoramic x-ray to give the dental surgeon a focused and clear view of how the wisdom teeth are situated and an indication of the difficulty of extraction.

The 2nd day after your wisdom tooth extraction, you are restricted to soft foods such as jello.

the tooth extraction was done by an oral surgeon. (:

The extraction of a tooth is classified as oral surgery.

Depends on if you have dental insurance and how much it can cover. Mine was only $172 Answer A wisdom tooth extraction in the United States can cost anywhere between $150 and $650 per tooth.. The average cost for wisdom tooth extraction is roughly $400 to $450. Cost will depend on the location of the tooth, surrounding nerves, and the difficulty of removal.

The second day after a wisdom tooth extraction, the wounds are still healing. Drinking alcohol is not recommended until the mouth has completely healed from the wisdom teeth extractions.

Keep an ice pack on your face on the side where your tooth was extracted

because the oral surgeon did not remove the "entire" tooth during the extraction.

A sinus infection is normally located in the maxillary sinus cavity, which would, in the ordinary course of things, not be related to having a wisdom tooth pulled. You would have to consult your oral surgeon to see whether he or she would decide upon an extraction of your wisdom tooth. I doubt that it would be a problem. You (and your oral surgeon) would only be concerned about the parietal and/or maxillary nerves close to your wisdom tooth --- and your sinus cavity is not. Regards, Jim.

After a wisdom tooth extraction, slight bleeding is very common. However if it continues after a long period of time (10 minutes-1 hour) see your dentist or a healthcare professional because you may require dissolvable stitches. Good Luck!

One of the common complications are pain and delayed healing. This wisdom tooth extraction is what dentist call as minor oral surgey. Read the article here http://www.intelligentdental.com/2010/05/24/management-of-pain-and-promotion-of-healing-after-a-tooth-extraction/

This depends on what tooth was extracted. Molars require the most time to heal, with the "wisdom teeth" being the longest. The gums can hurt for a week after a molar extraction.

Extraction is numbing your area and pulling your tooth. Surgery is having incisions and usually be put out to get teeth out.

No. You shouldn't but you should double check with the dentist.

If you had a lower molar or wisdom tooth removed you can experience radiating pain to the ear on that particular side. If the pain is severe it can signal the beginning of an infection or what is referred to as a dry socket. You should go see your dentist or oral surgeon.

If you are stupid enough to take it at all.

I just had my wisdom teeth removed and the teeth next to the wound were very sore for about a week and a half.

When a wisdom tooth is extracted, the anesthesia may take time to wear out. This is why someone may feel drowsy hours after the extraction. It is a good idea to just take a short nap.

After tooth extraction (wisdom teeth removed)

Schedule an appointment with your dentist. Your dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon to perform a wisdom tooth extraction. This procedure is relatively common and typically does not result in a lot of down time for the patient.
