Wisdom tooth surgery: buried completely in bone and impacted


Wisdom tooth x-ray for #38
Buried completely in one and impacted wisdom tooth #38

The patient came in with discomfort and swelling, seeking relief. After careful examination and a pre-operative CBCT scan, it was clear that tooth #38 (Buried completely in bone and impacted) needed to be removed. The patient, understanding the situation, requested the extraction.


Before proceeding, we discussed the procedure, risks, and costs involved.



Despite the potential risks, the patient was agreeable and ready to move forward.


With the patient's consent secured, we began the operation. Local anesthesia was administered to ensure the patient's comfort throughout the procedure. Once numb, we proceeded with the extraction, carefully raising the buccal flap and sectioning the tooth into manageable pieces.


It was a meticulous process, but our skilled team managed to remove tooth #38 in seven pieces. Following extraction, we performed curettage, irrigated the area with saline, and placed BSS for primary closure. Hemostasis was achieved, and the patient was reassured throughout the process.
