[00:00:02.408] Wisdom teeth are third molars. [00:00:03.950] Lots of times, third molars are not able to properly come out, [00:00:07.542] or when they do come out, they come out in an improper position [00:00:10.993] and they're difficult to clean. [00:00:12.708] Most of the time people that have third molars that need to be extracted, [00:00:16.133] either an infection, a discomfort, swelling, [00:00:18.892] they have a tendency to be emergency patients. [00:00:21.300] Wisdom teeth can be extracted as a simple extraction like any other tooth. [00:00:25.558] If they already have it come out. [00:00:28.583] If they're stuck in the jawbones and there's a little bit more [00:00:31.283] invasiveness to the procedure, [00:00:33.183] some people prefer to get all four wisdom teeth taken out [00:00:36.008] and be put under general anesthesia. [00:00:37.950] Some people only want to get the actual wisdom tooth that's bothering them out. [00:00:42.817] So we have to evaluate each on a case by case basis. [00:00:45.825] Recovery can vary a lot depending on the severity of the case. [00:00:49.092] Here in the office, we have techniques to help people [00:00:51.425] minimize any postop inflammation, [00:00:54.333] depending on how invasive a wisdom tooth extraction needs to be, [00:00:58.483] determines the recuperation.
