If you have advanced tooth decay or an impacted wisdom tooth, you may require oral surgery to have them safely extracted.
It is important you always to get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own teeth out at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you.
Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment in which to perform this type of procedure with the utmost care, and your recovery can be relatively quick. In the case of wisdom teeth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over the counter painkillers.
