The procedure for dis- impaction is slightly more elaborate than a regular tooth removal as it may involve trimming of the bone to expose the submerged tooth. As all removal procedures are done under Local Anesthesia (Numbing of the jaw) there is no pain during the procedure. After the procedure, stiches are placed. Complete recovery may take upto a week to ten days after the procedure. A swelling in the jaw is also common for 2-5 days due to the surgery.
