In brief: Depends

Depends on the tooth position.
If fully erupted in the mouth - simple extraction. If impacted, may need a gum flap, removal of bone, and sectioning of the tooth.

In brief: Skill and Training

Removal of wisdom teeth will depend upon whether or not the teeth are erupted, impacted (classification of the impacted teeth), as well as the person performing the surgery.
Dentists and surgeons may use different techniques for removal of teeth, as well as different types of anesthesia and/or sedation. Ask your dentist or surgeon what will be involved with your particular surgery.

There is great variation in how wisdom teeth present and the skill level of the surgeon. Once you find a qualified surgeon. Ask them what you can expect

In brief: Extractions

The dentist will numb you up with local anesthesia.
Some patients also opt for sweet air or IV sedation. The dentist uses forceps and\or elevators to remove the teeth, either in one piece or in sections depending upon the position of the tooth and the difficulty of the extraction. This is what dentists\oral surgeons spend years training for and for them it's routine.
