Hi, I am a homemaker. From last few days, I am suffering from tooth pain. When I examined I found that it is my wisdom teeth erupting. When I checked myself I found that, the wisdom teeth do not have sufficient space to erupt. It seems that it is damaging the other teeth. Its creating ear pain also. My husband suggested that it is better to remove that wisdom teeth else the intensity of pain will increase.  Is there any complication involved in removing this wisdom teeth before 30 years? Is this removal surgery complicated? Is it necessary to remove the wisdom tooth? Is this removal procedure take more than one visit? Are there any things to be done before taking the surgery for removing the wisdom teeth? Please give some genuine replies.

I have had all four of my wisdom teeth removed for exactly the same reasons. Before I started removal procedure I have waited almost too long and suffered the pain - almost too long because now my other teeth are no longer straight and properly aligned because the wisdom teeth pushed them, and also many have cracked so I needed to repair them. If I removed my wisdom teeth in time none of that would happen. That put aside, removal requires one or two visits, depending if you need stitches or don't (if you do, and if they put the kind of stitches that need to be removed, then you need to come in for removal. It is possible to have stitches which don't have to be removed but decompose by themselves, ask your oral surgeon performing the procedure). The length of the procedure depends on how much your tooth is out already, if it is already exposed (that is, it is sticking out of the skin, even by little bit) then it is very short and easy, they just insert the instrument and it is out. If it is still under the skin, then it is more complicated since it requires cutting of the skin. And if it is even under the bone, than some hitting of the bone is necessary in order to get to the teeth. After the procedure you will probably need some light painkillers for a couple of days. The removal is operation like any other, and it is possible to have complications. I had three without any complications and one with serious complication - the bleeding wouldn't stop for four days, they broke a blood vessel during removal and didn't notice it. And after they repaired that, I had another complication, since they forgot to remove the gaze and it stayed in for two months, you can imagine the inflammation that caused... But there is no escaping it, if it's too big for your mouth, it needs out and it will only get worse. For preparation, you need to make X-ray image, and at home have sufficient ice, since it is recommended to cool the wound for a day (cooling is done externally, of course - you wrap the ice in a rag or something and then put it to your cheek next to the wound). To avoid complication, choose a good oral surgeon with good record. And good luck.

I forgot to mention - the procedure is done under local anesthetic, that is they give you an injection in the skin next to the tooth in question. Also, if you need to remove more than one wisdom tooth it is good to wait minimum 4 weeks between the procedures since it gives organism time to recover and minimises the risk of complications. Also, it is easier to eat when one wound is already healed before you make another...
