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.

Dr Sibda creates a calm and happy environment which is so great especially if you (like me) suffer with anxiety going to any doctor. Removed 2 wisdoms at the same time and it was swift and careful. Also Dr Sibda checks in with you after your extraction to make sure you’re doing fine.

Overall it was a very good experienceDianne, South Africa, 22 10 22

We went to get partial dentures for my son. First week the dentist took the measurements. The second week we went to collect the dentures. They fitted well and we will see in the next 2 weeks how they go. So far so good. The staff are friendly and professional and the dentist knows her job very well and was very helpful and answered all our questions. Overall it was a very good experience.

He did such a great and painless job that I wanted to cry tears of joy after he was donePhillia, South Africa, 27 08 21

This was probably my best dental experience to date. The receptionist, Yoneli, was patient and helpful throughout the process and both Dr Sayed + Dr Ismail were so considerate. I was in safe hands with Dr Ismail for the wisdom tooth extraction. He did such a great and painless job that I wanted to cry tears of joy after he was done. 10/10 would recommend. Was also lucky to stumble on them during women's month because I got a 20% discount on the consultation 😉

They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortableRobert, US, 03 10 22

4 years and Satisfied! Dr. Hartshorne is one in a Million.The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team was outstanding. Undoubtedly the best dental-related experience I’ve ever had. From the first day I visited this office I’ve felt as though I’ve been cared for and treated in the best possible way. I had 5 Implants. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The result from my dental implants was great.. about 8 months later, one tooth seemed to be a bit lose, but he had warned me that it rarely ever happens, but if it does, feel free to come in, we'll take care of it, and he did. Also note that the office and operating rooms are incredibly clean. I also found it nice that they do everything from the consultation to the procedure at the same place. Modern Equipment in a nice facility with a doctor that knows his job was a game changer for me. The Money, was worth my Smile. Every visit was like visiting friends
