What is wisdom tooth extraction
Upper wisdom teeth are generally very easy to extract with minimal postoperative complications. It is more common to have complications with the removal of the lower wisdom teeth. An x-ray called an “OPG / OPT” (orthopantomogram) is taken to assess the position of the wisdom teeth before the procedure is performed.
