What is meant by wisdom tooth extraction?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars that are found on each side of the upper and lower jaw. They are the last teeth to erupt and often do not erupt but remain below the gumline. Impacted, or crowded, teeth that have not erupted cause pain and swelling. The dentist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon will extract the tooth for the patients' comfort. The extraction of a wisdom tooth takes from ten minutes to one hour.

Are wisdom teeth extractions painful?

Local anaesthesia is injected before a wisdom tooth is extracted. Patients will not feel pain during the procedure. Anxious patients are given a sedative before the procedure.

What is the recovery time after wisdom teeth extractions?

It takes up to three weeks to completely recover from a wisdom tooth extraction.

When can I travel by air after having wisdom teeth extracted?

Patients can travel by air two days after having wisdom teeth extracted, after consulting with their dentist or surgeon.

What care is required after having wisdom teeth extracted?

Patients should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should gently rinse their mouth with salt water frequently. They should not rinse their mouths or brush their teeth vigorously for a few days. Patients should sleep with their head elevated. They should avoid vigorous exercise and lifting heavy objects for at least a week. They should use ice packs to reduce any swelling. They should not eat very hot or very cold food for a few days.

Rating from 2 Reviews Really looks so naturalMaria, Australia, 04 Jan 16

I had veneers that really look so natural. So happy with the result! More than what I expected. And the cost is very minimal for the above average service of the dentist and the whole staff. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. The clinic is maintained well. I like how they organized everything in the premise. Very clean, neat and modern. The equipment and other materials are obviously sterilized. Thumbs up to the cleanliness and great appointment!

Wisdom Tooth Extraction  
The gum tissue around the wisdom tooth is cut open to reveal the tooth. The tooth is loosened by gripping it tightly and wiggling it back and forth until it can be lifted out of the gums. Sometimes a tooth may be impacted so tightly that it cannot be simply lifted out of the gums. In cases like this the tooth will be broken up into pieces first before being removed. Depending on the incision and extraction site, sutures may be needed to close the area. Soluble sutures are the best option, which will dissolve on their own.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction  
When there is not enough space the wisdom teeth become trapped and often push into the neighbouring teeth which can cause discomfort or pain. They can also partially erupt from the gum which can cause a pocket in the gum, prone to bacterial infections. It is recommended that wisdom teeth be removed as early as possible to avoid infection and crowding or pushing teeth out of alignment. The removal of the wisdom teeth can be completed in-chair using a local anaesthetic or under general anaesthetic in a hospital. For more severe cases you may be required to see a specialist in which case you will be provided with a referral.
