The most common problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth are the following:
When x-rays reveal that a tooth has become impacted, the best course of action is to surgically remove it, or the problems listed above may develop. It’s also possible that problems will develop in the future when x-rays show signs of overcrowding or other issues.
You will brought out of sedation after surgery, and the dentist will provide you with gauze to bite down on in the affected area, so as to stop the bleeding. You may feel some after-effects from the sedation, so you’ll be taken to a recovery room where you can be monitored. You can expect that the level of pain will gradually increase as the anesthetic wears off, so you may need to use medication to manage whatever pain or discomfort you feel.
