Wisdom tooth extraction is one of the most common procedures performed by dentists across the globe. However, most patients are still unaware about the how the procedure is, why it needs to be carried out, what are some of the common concerns associated with a wisdom tooth extraction, etc.

It is important for anybody to be aware of all the intricacies and details involved in the extraction procedure when asked to undergo a wisdom tooth extraction procedure. When your dental surgeon or dentists confirms that you need to undergo a wisdom tooth extraction, you can ask for a consultation to understand the complications or concerns involved in the procedure and if you are at any risk. More often than not dentists will be willing to clear any doubts you may have about the wisdom tooth extraction.

Here are some of the most common concerns associated with a wisdom tooth extraction:

1. Pain: The biggest concern associated with a dental procedure is the amount of pain involved. Most patients are concerned about how painful the wisdom tooth extraction will be.

2. Complications: Another concern involved with wisdom tooth extraction is the chances of developing complications during or post the surgery. The risk is higher in patients with poor oral health or patients who have medical conditions that may cause delay in the recovery process.

3. Recovery: Another concern is the recovery period. How long is the recovery period post the wisdom tooth extraction and what special care needs to be taken during this time?

4. Wisdom teeth removal cost: Cost is a big concern for patients opting for a wisdom tooth extraction. Most people hope to get a cheap wisdom teeth removal procedure. However, whether you will get a cheap wisdom teeth removal procedure is determined by the condition of each individuals tooth.

5. Overall health: The patients overall well being is also equally important. Complications are likely to arise if the patient has some medical conditions like blood sugar, blood pressure, etc. The dentist may not be able to administer certain drugs if the patient has a medical condition. Thus, it is important to understand if the procedure may alter or have any effect on the patients overall well being.

6. Regular life & diet: Another concern associated with wisdom tooth extraction is if the patient can resume his/her routine life and diet immediately. This is greatly dependent on the complications involved in the surgery. If it was a simple wisdom tooth extraction, the patient can resume his normal routine two days after the surgery and can start eating his/her regular foods after the stitches have dissolved.

These are some of the most common concerns associated with a wisdom tooth extraction. You can freely discuss these or any other concerns you may have with your dental surgeon.
