Question No. 1: How many teeth will be removed?
Answer: The number of wisdom teeth being removed depends on how many wisdom teeth you have. Little did you know, some people have more or less than four wisdom teeth. Your dentist will typically remove all of your wisdom teeth to keep your oral health in tip-top shape. However, if your dentist thinks one or more teeth will not cause harm or complications, you might need to remove less teeth than necessary.

Question No. 2: What type of anesthesia will be used?
Answer: Your dentist will use either local or general anesthesia. Your dentist will decide which anesthesia is right for you based on your needs and health. It’s best to talk to her about the method that will be used.

Question No. 3: How long will the surgery take?
Answer: The surgery can take one to several hours, depending on how many teeth that are needing to be pulled.
