If you’ve ever experienced what it’s like to have impacted wisdom teeth, then you understand how uncomfortable and painful it can be.
Wisdom teeth become impacted when there isn’t enough room in the mouth for the teeth to come through or develop properly.
Typically, they become trapped in the gums or jawbone, which makes for excruciating pain.
In the video above, you’ll see what it looks like when a dentist extracts an impacted wisdom tooth. Dr. Amik Maytesyan is forced to cut through the patient’s gums to reach the tooth.
It’s amazing to see the tooth come out in one piece!
