Getting your, or your child’s, wisdom teeth removed can be a frightening experience.
- Will it be painful?
- Will your face swell?
- Should a dentist or an oral surgeon take the teeth out?
These are all great questions. Questions about swelling and discomfort after wisdom tooth removal are hard to answer. Much of that depends on how well the actual surgery goes.
