A general anaesthetic may also be inhaled through the nose or given through an IV line in your arm to induce sleep during the procedure, especially if several or all wisdom teeth are removed at the same time.

The bone that blocks access to the tooth root would be removed subsequently.

Your dentist would clean the extraction site thoroughly before putting gauze over the extraction site to control bleeding and help a blood clot form. In some cases, your dentist may also stitch the wound to promote the healing process; however, this is not always necessary.
