What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery entails the removal of teeth that are embedded inside the jawbone, the removal of intraoral tumors and cysts, dental implant placement, and bone grafting procedures. Wisdom teeth removal is considered the cornerstone of oral surgery procedures, and has been recommended to prevent adjacent tooth damage, and potential infections and complications as an individual ages through his or her life.
Sedation Dentistry Options
At the Wisdom Teeth Factory we offer a myriad of sedation dentistry options that will help you with your wisdom teeth removal. The majority of our patients undergo IV Sedation during their procedure to help them sleep and relax during their surgery. The involves the insertion of a catheter inside of your arm that is used to help apply liquid medications into your system to help you sleep through your procedure.
Other sedation options can include laughing gas (nitrous oxide) and oral conscious sedation. The latter entails taking sedation tablets an hour before your wisdom teeth removal procedure.
The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process
Removing impacted wisdom teeth is an art that only a select few of dentists possess. The majority of trained dentists who remove wisdom teeth are oral surgeons, and a select number of periodontists and general dentists.
The removal process for wisdom teeth involves a series of steps that are coordinated with the surgery team. The steps include:
- The numbing of the wisdom teeth to be removed with local anesthesia. These days 2% Lidocaine (not Novocaine) is typically used as the anesthetic of choice for the extraction of wisdom teeth.
- After anesthesia, a blade is used to help reflect the gum tissue to gain access to the impacted wisdom tooth.
- A surgical drill is then used to remove bone tissue, and help split the tooth into smaller pieces so it has room to be removed from your mouth.
- After the entire tooth is removed (crown and roots) then the area is copiously irrigated with normal saline (salt water) to help cleanser and clean the area.
- Dis solvable stitches are normally placed afterwards to place the gum tissue back together. Sutures are not placed if your wisdom teeth have infections associated with them.

What can I do if my bleeding won’t stop after my wisdom teeth removal procedure? There are a few steps you can take to stop bleeding after wisdom teeth surgery. First, bite down very hard on gauze that is given to you by your doctor for 30 minutes. If that does not stop the bleeding, contact your dentist or your surgeon. If it’s after hours, you may have to go to your local emergency room. As most physicians don’t know how to handle a bleeding tooth socket, see if they have a liquid medication called Amicar. This is a gel that can help stop your tooth socket from bleeding. Apply the liquid to the gauze and bite down on it for another 30 minutes. Make sure you follow up with the surgery team the following day.
