The Wisdom teeth removal Sydney is a standard procedure and you don’t have to worry about it. It is usually done by a dentist who is specialised in removing wisdom teeth. If your dentist recommends removing your wisdom teeth, he or she will take an x-ray of your mouth to help plan the procedure.

The cost of wisdom teeth extraction may vary from one person to another and it depends on several factors, including the impaction of the teeth, anaesthesia, number of teeth, and the complexity of the case.

Anaesthesia 

Before getting your wisdom teeth out, you will be administered anaesthesia to numb the tooth and its surrounding area. If you are too anxious about the procedure, you can opt for dental sedation such as laughing gas, IV, and general anaesthesia. These types of sedations can help you stay calm and comfortable throughout the procedure. But, you will need someone to drop you at home. Often, local anaesthesia is administered to remove the wisdom teeth Sydney by blocking the pain. You will feel little pressure but not the pain. The Wisdom teeth removal in Sydney is an in-office procedure and you will be able to go home on the same day as the procedure.

Extraction of wisdom teeth 

If the tooth is submerged, the dentist will make a small incision on the gum to access it. Even a small piece of the bone that is blocking the way will also be removed. Then, the tooth will be cut into smaller parts to make it easier to remove so that there is less need to make an incision if the tooth has broken through the gum. You will feel the pressure while doing the procedure as the dentist will rock the tooth front and forth to get it removed.

Since the area is numb you won’t feel any pain. However, if you experience any pain during the procedure, tell your dentist to give another shot of sedation. Sometimes it happens if the person is too anxiety. The time taken to remove the tooth may vary from one patient to another. Usually, it doesn’t take longer than 20 minutes if it is not complicated.

After extraction 

If incision is made, stitches that can be dissolved on its own are used to seal the gum. The dentist will tell you how long the stitches take to dissolve. The dentist will place the gauze over the surgical site and ask you to bite it down for an hour. This allows the blood clot to form in the surgical site. The blood clot helps to heal so try not dissolving it.  Stick to fluids on the first day of the surgery and take rest.
