After confirming the location of your wisdom teeth, we’ll determine which method would be most appropriate for your unique case. If the tooth is clearly visible, we’ll use an elevator to rock the tooth back and forth until it’s released from the periodontal ligament. Then, we’ll use a pair of dental forceps to remove the tooth from your jaw. If the tooth is buried underneath another tooth or gum tissue, we’ll make a small incision in order to access the tooth. This is usually followed by breaking the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.
