This procedure is almost as much of rite of passage as getting braces is. Wisdom teeth removal is a sign of growing up. But it’s often associated with quite a bit of pain and discomfort. Of course any surgery will be uncomfortable, but you’ll find that wisdom teeth removal’s discomfort is largely overblown.

Today, we’re going to walk you through the wisdom teeth removal process. Hopefully this sets realistic expectations for your own surgery.

Do I need them out?
The first misconception to clear up is that not everyone will need to see a dentist for wisdom teeth removal. Impacted teeth, or teeth coming in at an angle that’d ruin your smile, will have to come out. Dr. Dhruva Patel will work with your dentist to determine if you need yours out.

It’s not always four
A lot of people will try and one-up wisdom tooth stories by talking about how many they had removed. The reality is that you may not always need four of them removed. Only the ones that may cause problems are removed, and you may not grow four anyways.

It’s not that painful
