Steps of wisdom tooth removal
The digital 3d x-ray provides the surgical operator with all the information unseen with the naked eye.
Before any surgery, the patient is first prepared both psychologically and physically for the procedure. A strong anesthetic is administered to keep the patient numb and the procedure pain free.
Erupted wisdom teeth are the easiest to be removed because the crown is fully invisible which provides a good grip for their removal.
Partially erupted wisdom teeth demands a small gum opening to provide visibility for the crown and to facilitate its removal.
Impacted or completely unerupted wisdom teeth demand a small opening in the gum and slight bone removal to make the tooth visible.
The digital 3d x-ray is a powerful tool as it shows the impacted wisdom state in the bone regarding its curvature, number of roots and approximation to vital structures. The gum opening is then sutured back into place and left to heal.
