Wisdom Tooth Extraction:

At Dr. Sanjay Kalra Dental Clinic, we offer specialized care for wisdom tooth extraction, a crucial procedure for maintaining optimal oral health. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, often emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood and can lead to various issues such as pain, infection, and misalignment. Our clinic is equipped with advanced technology, including 3D cone beam CT scans, to accurately assess the position of the wisdom teeth and plan the extraction procedure. Wisdom tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of one or more third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth. These teeth often cause issues due to their late eruption and limited space in the jaw. Here’s a breakdown of the technical aspects and benefits of wisdom tooth extraction:

Preparation: Before the extraction, the dentist will assess the patient’s oral health and may take X-rays or 3D cone beam CT scans to determine the position of the wisdom teeth and the surrounding structures, such as nerves and sinuses.

Anesthesia: The dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. In some cases, especially for impacted teeth or anxious patients, sedation options like nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or IV sedation may be used.

Extraction Techniques:

Simple Extraction: This involves removing a fully erupted wisdom tooth. The dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator and then removes it with forceps.

Surgical Extraction: This is required for impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth. The dentist makes an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and may need to section the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.


Pain Relief: Extracting impacted or infected wisdom teeth can alleviate pain and discomfort.
Prevention of Complications: Removing wisdom teeth can prevent problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and damage to adjacent teeth.
Improved Oral Health: Extraction can improve overall oral health by eliminating the risk of future issues related to impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth.
Preventive Measure: Even if wisdom teeth are not currently causing issues, their removal can prevent potential problems in the future, as they are difficult to clean and more prone to decay and gum disease.
Recovery: After the extraction, patients are advised to follow post-operative instructions provided by the dentist. This typically includes resting, avoiding strenuous activities, and eating soft foods. Pain and swelling can be managed with prescribed medications and ice packs.

Follow-up: Patients are usually scheduled for a follow-up visit to monitor healing and ensure there are no complications.
