Oral surgeon office. In our pittsburgh based oral surgery office, most of our patients come from referrals from general dentists. Although some general dentists have the training and experience to extract wisdom teeth, oral surgeons are required to have a minimum of 4 years of hospital based surgical training. In general oral surgoens have more experience and expertise in the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth.
Usually in office. Wisdom teeth that are impacted should generally be removed before they cause problems. Impacted just means that they're buried under the gums in the bone and can't be seen except on an x-ray. Generally speaking this is an office procedure performed under intravenous and local anesthesia by an oral surgeon on an outpatient basis. It's a very common and safe procedure. Hospitalization isn't required.
