Removal of the tooth can take not more than 30 minutes. Sometimes if it is just one tooth, it could be done in 10 minutes. Before the wisdom teeth Melbourne procedure, you will be given anaesthesia to numb the gums. The dentist then gently moves the tooth from side to side to loosen it. This may create some discomfort, but it will be mild. Once the tooth is loose, it is pulled out.
Sometimes it may be necessary for the dentist to cut the gums and remove part of the jaw bone to be able to remove the tooth. After such a procedure, the gum will need to be stitched.
Dr Pinho will advise you not to operate heavy machinery including a car for some hours as the anaesthesia wears off. You may not be able to eat solid foods for some days and you must take care of your oral hygiene. It may take a week for the wound to close up. Your gum may also be swollen just after the procedure but that should be no cause for alarm.
