What is a wisdom tooth extraction?

A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more of the four adult molars that grow in the top and bottom corners of your mouth.

These molars are the last of your permanent teeth to erupt in your mouth, appearing in your late teens or early 20s.

In some cases, wisdom teeth come through without causing any problems. However, if there isn’t enough room to ensure teeth can develop properly, you may need an extraction surgery.


"Dr. Harouni made everything very simple and smooth. I had 4 wisdom teeth extracted, 2 impacted. The sedation made the procedure painless, as I don't remember a thing. Recovery was great as well due to his use of PRP. Office staff are extremely friendly and make you feel at ease. Highly recommended!"

Why do I need my wisdom teeth removed?

After a thorough dental evaluation, Dr. Harouni may recommend an extraction of your wisdom teeth if there isn’t enough room in your mouth to allow the molars to grow normally. He may suggest surgery for impacted molars that:


  • Grow at angle
  • Stay below your gumline
  • Crowd your other adult teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and increase your risk of developing a tooth infection. Food and bacteria can get trapped behind the impacted molar, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

To prevent these dental complications, Dr. Harouni can surgically extract any of the impacted wisdom teeth.

What can I expect during wisdom tooth extraction surgery?

To keep you comfortable throughout the procedure, Dr. Harouni uses intravenous (IV) sedation. He also uses a local anesthetic to numb your gums, so you won’t feel any pain during surgery. IV sedation keeps you awake but very relaxed.

Dr. Harouni removes the wisdom teeth and their roots, meticulously cleaning out the extraction site before suturing the wound. To control bleeding, Dr. Harouni places clean gauze in surgical areas.

If you have IV sedation, you must recover briefly before going home.

How long does it take to heal from a wisdom tooth extraction?

Extraction surgery affects everyone differently. You may need over-the-counter or prescription medications to keep you comfortable. Ice packs can also help manage postsurgical swelling.

Dr. Harouni provides an aftercare plan to ensure you heal properly. You need to avoid activities immediately after surgery and should eat only soft foods for the first 24 hours. To prevent infection, rinse your mouth after eating to remove food and bacteria from the surgical site.

You need to schedule a follow-up appointment so Dr. Harouni can check how your gums are healing and to remove the sutures.
