Possible Side Effects and Complications

Wisdom tooth extraction is a highly safe and routine procedure, but there are some hazards involved in specific circumstances. Most people will recover in a few days. The usual recuperation time ranges from 1 to 5 days. Some blood, discomfort, swelling, bruising, and jaw stiffness are to be expected. Over the first few days, a semi-solid food will be required. Some people may need to take time off from work.

A dry socket is a problem that occurs when the socket does not heal normally. Your dentist will treat it by cleaning and treating the affected area with appropriate medicines. At this point, you should contact your dentist/oral surgeon. Painkillers can assist to alleviate the discomfort. If you smoke, you are more likely to develop dry socket. Two nerves are located around the roots of your lower wisdom teeth. These nerves provide sensation to your lower lip, chin, and tongue. When a wisdom tooth is extracted, these nerves can be injured. This is related to the operation's difficulty. This can result in tingling or numbness in your lip, chin, or tongue. This is usually transient, although it can be permanent in exceptional situations. Sometimes damaged tips of bent roots are left inside because removing them might cause nerve injury. When an X-ray is available, this can be explored in greater depth with the surgeon. Other teeth may be harmed in some situations if they are substantially filled with amalgam or crowned.

To prevent additional infection, the root is cleaned and filled.

When the pulp within your tooth becomes infected due to tooth decay or injured due to an accident to your mouth, root canal therapy (also known as Endodontics) is required. This infection could progress through the root canal system, resulting in an abscess and a considerable lot of suffering. If root canal therapy is not performed, the tooth may need to be extracted.
