Wisdom tooth extraction is necessary to provide permanent pain relief due to an impacted tooth and also to stop the spread of infection to other parts of the mouth and to the surrounding teeth.
The wisdom tooth is any one of the four third molars found in the back portion of our mouth. Wisdom teeth problems arise when the affected tooth does not grow out completely from under the gum line.
This is called an impacted tooth and will have the tendency to grow sideways or push against the surrounding teeth. This pushing motion then causes extreme pain and affect adjacent teeth making it necessary to remove the impacted tooth through a wisdom extraction procedure.

The first step in a wisdom tooth extraction is numbing of the area where the affected tooth is located. This is done by injecting the area with a local anesthetic, to make sure you will feel no pain during the extraction procedure. In cases when two or more wisdom teeth will be extracted in one appointment, general anesthesia may be considered as a pain control method.
