Case dependent: What is to expect is really case dependent. The amount of work and steps required to to remove a wisdom tooth varies depending on the configuration of the tooth in the bone, the density of the bone, age of the patient, number of roots, and many other factors. It is best to have a consultation with your dentist to discuss your individual situation
