Wisdom teeth are usually taken out between the ages of 16 and 22 or after orthodontic treatment.
The reason for the extraction is a lack of space in the back of the mouth. Very often wisdom teeth are impacted and cannot erupt normally.
Wisdom teeth are taken out under local anesthesia. An oral sedative is also given for comfort and anxiety control. Resorbable sutures are placed after the extraction. Pain medication, antibiotics and anti swelling medication are given.
