In some rare situations where a dentist feels there’s an increased risk of injury to the inferior dental nerve near the wisdom tooth – a coronectomy may be the preferred treatment choice. This involves extracting part of the tooth (the crown) and leaving the roots in place.
Recovery time following a wisdom tooth extraction can vary depending on the complexity of the surgery and individual patient factors. Generally, upper wisdom teeth extractions heal much quicker than lower wisdom teeth – as little as a few days post-surgery.
Many people recover from wisdom teeth surgery in three to four days. Recovering from impacted wisdom teeth removal usually takes longer – about one to two weeks.
