How long does wisdom teeth removal take?

A single wisdom tooth removal may take 20-30 minutes depending on the complexity and position of the tooth within the jawbone.

Usually, all four wisdom teeth can be removed within 60-90 minutes once the surgical field has been prepared (antiseptics and anaesthetics).

If you had a local anaesthetic for the procedure, you could go home soon after the procedure ends but it is best to have a family member or friend to accompany you.

If the wisdom teeth procedure is planned to be done under general anaesthetic, you may take longer to recover, and you may be asked to stay overnight.
