Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in your jaws and, for many people, they come through normally and do not cause any problems. However, often there won’t be enough space for them to erupt into the correct position like the other teeth in your mouth. This may cause these teeth erupt in abnormal position or be partially erupted or completely impacted under the bone or gums. In these conditions, in can get infected and the Dentist may recommend the wisdom tooth to be removed if you have the following:

  • Severe pain
  • Repeated infection of soft tissue behind the last tooth
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Decay

Preparing for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom tooth that is fully erupted normally in the mouth may be removed by a General Dentist. However, in many cases, these teeth are impacted or having curved roots and may be very close to the nerve. In these cases,  it is best to be removed by a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon. 

An X-ray or a scan will be taken before to assess the position of the impacted tooth and the complexity of the case. This will help your oral surgeon to choose the best way to remove the infected tooth. Usually, wisdom tooth removal is a simple procedure that your oral surgeon will be able to do at the dental clinic under local anaesthesia.

At Go Dental Clinic, our expert team of oral surgeons will discuss the treatment plan and being fully informed will help you feel more at ease during the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do wisdom teeth need to be removed?

If they are impacted and infected or cause crowding in your teeth, it is recommended that they be removed to avoid damaging the surrounding teeth. If they grow into the normal position and function properly, it is not necessary to have them removed.

What are impacted wisdom teeth?

A wisdom tooth is considered impacted if there is not enough room after the second molar for the tooth to emerge or develop normally.

What are some problems that can arise if I do not remove my wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, if it is not erupted properly, can cause further dental problems, including damage to surrounding teeth, jaw damage, infected gum tissues, cavities, alignment problems and sinus issues.

Why are wisdom teeth more difficult to remove than other teeth?

Being the last tooth to erupt in the mouth, very often there is not enough space and these teeth either do not erupt completely or erupt partially in the mouth. Moreover, these teeth have curved roots and it may be close to the nerve of the lower jaw. This makes it much more difficult to remove as compared to a normally erupted tooth.

How much will it cost to get my wisdom teeth removed?

The cost of the treatment depends on the complexity of the case.

I visited Go Dental Clinic about a week ago and then followed by my wisdom tooth extraction which was badly impacted. Doctor did an amazing job. The whole process was over within 30 minutes. He clearly explained about the whole procedure and post extraction care. It was a painless process and even after nearly three days l didn't experience any pain and the swelling has gone down. Post extraction he followed up to check if everything was under control. If you are going for the same, I highly recommend Go Dental Clinic. Thank you!

I am happy with the service provided at the clinic. Dr Shyam was brilliant, his 'chairside manner', if that's term was impeccable. He was engaged, kept me calm and constantly checking on my wellbeing. The manager of the clinic is very professional, friendly and helpful. I recommend the clinic to anyone, you will not be disappointed.
