One of the most common dental procedures is the removal, or "extraction," of the human third molar—the "wisdom" tooth. While, in theory, wisdom teeth were once necessary for chewing fibrous vegetables, the human diet has changed over the years, and as a result, people today have generally smaller jaws.

He then numbs the areas to be operated on with a local anesthetic.

The teeth are then loosened using special dental tools, and then gently removed. Finally, the dental surgeon will suture the area if necessary.

Usually, recovery from a wisdom tooth removal surgery is only a few days, and will
