So what is the specific process of extracting the impacted wisdom teeth? After going to the dentist for a check-up, the doctor will let you take a blood test. Then the doctor will make a extraction plan according to the position of wisdom teeth, and explain to you the basic process of extraction and the possible risks. When everything is ready, it's the whole extraction process. First, local anesthesia is performed, then the gingiva of the wisdom teeth is incised with a scalpel, and the alveolar bone covering the wisdom teeth is removed with a dental drill or ultrasonic bone knife. The wisdom teeth are divided into two or several pieces with a dental drill according to the need, and then the wounds are washed out. For example, there are many bone defects in the extraction site, which affect the use of the front molar. The doctor may also advise you to extract the wisdom teeth. Some artificial bone powder was implanted into the wound to help restore the height of the alveolar bone. Finally, the wound was sutured with sutures. Therefore, the extraction process of impacted wisdom teeth is not simple, and in order to reduce the pain during and after extraction, doctors often use minimally invasive instruments such as ultrasound bone knife to extract teeth, which makes the price of extraction of impacted wisdom teeth rise.
