Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The wisdom teeth grow at the back of the mouth, and are the last teeth to come through. Often, there isn’t enough space for the wisdom teeth to come through, and because of the lack of space they can sometimes emerge at an angle, or only part way through and get stuck. Wisdom teeth that grow like this are often referred to as ‘impacted’
Impacted wisdom teeth can sometimes cause pain, swelling and infection. Having impacted impacted wisdom teeth removed surgically by a specialist oral surgeon can help to stop these problems.
The procedure is done under local anaesthesia which numbs the whole area so you won’t feel any pain during it, but you will still be awake.
The technique used to remove the tooth will depend on the position of the tooth, this will be discussed with you beforehand. Usually you will feel some pressure on the tooth as the oral surgeon will need to widen the socket and loosen the tooth by using special instruments, then rocking it back and slightly to remove it.
If the tooth is underneath the gums and embedded within the jawbone it may require a small cut in the gum, and removing a bit of bone or cutting the tooth into smaller pieces to help remove the tooth. After the tooth is removed, the oral surgeon may then need to use stitches to close the wound, if required.
We use the latest technology for tooth removal including the minimally invasive technique, the Benex system.
