When a wisdom tooth starts spurting out of your mouth

During the procedure, your dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering it, to remove the wisdom tooth. You may need stitches, after the tooth is removed. In most cases, stitches dissolve over time. Some stitches do not dissolve; however, and will need to be removed after a few days but this technique is used less often. Cotton gauze pad is generally used to stop any bleeding from the surgery. Wisdom tooth extraction involves the usual surgical extraction used on any other teeth. A local anesthesia is used to make the patient calm and unwary of the physical pain brought by the procedure. General anesthesia is highly recommended for extraction procedures that involve more than a single tooth. More often, dentists split the wisdom tooth into several pieces in order to remove them easily since it is quite hard to get to them. But generally, the chances of it happening are high if (a) the teeth extracted is the lower third molar teeth (another name for wisdom teeth) and (b) the wisdom tooth is impacted and it was removed surgically. Broadly speaking, there are two types of peope who can extract your teeth - general dentist and oral surgeon. If money is no problem, go for the oral surgeon because wisdom tooth extraction is more involved than extracting other teeth. That is why to minimise complications later on it is best to opt for oral surgeons, although some general dentists are equally skilled to handle the job professionally. One of the most common complications experienced after wisdom tooth extractions is a 'dry socket'. Technically this is alveolar osteitis. The longstanding belief is that dry sockets happen for one of two reasons: either an adequate blood clot did not form in the socket of the extracted tooth or the blood clot that did form has come out. The blood clot is a critical part of healing, so losing the blood clot can sometimes delay the healing process.
