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.

I will definitely recommend themAndrea, South Africa, 07 11 16

I went for a second opinion on getting my wisdom teeth removed. 2 impacted and 2 regular. Check-in was very friendly, I didn't wait longer than the appointment scheduled time and the dentist were also very friendly. They explained in an easy to follow manner and gave me all the options I had to move forward along with booklets to read at home. I will definitely recommend them.

From the moment I entered, to the moment I left, everything was smoothCarole, South Africa, 18 06 18

I visited this dentist after my front tooth had broken off. By the time of my appointment, my teeth were in quite a bad shape due to grinding and the dentist provided me with information on what to do. He made a clip that could fit over my teeth (both upper and lower). This felt like the best clinic to help me with my problem. I didn’t need any aftercare, but I will be going back to them for further treatment as soon as I’m ready. From the moment I entered, to the moment I left, everything was smooth. They made good on their promises and delivered superb service. There’s nothing I can fault them on and I’ll definitely be using them in the future. As soon as I have the money, I’ll be getting some implants done. I’m very happy with the clip - I feel it was an investment. I’ve always had a fear of the dentist, but I trust them completely. Dr. Khan was fantastic. I’ll go back for drilling, fillings and full implants. I have faith in these people.

I’d definitely visit them againAnonymous, Malmesbury, 17 04 18

I saw Dr Johan on a tv programme for the first time. He looked like a nice guy, so I thought I’d approach him. The doctor made me a set of excellent dentures. No aftercare or follow-ups were needed. The staff were highly professional, and the service, top class. I’d definitely visit them again. The doctor sent me a quote before the appointment. The dentures were worth the money.

Dr Roy is a very humble man and I can confirm that creating a beautiful smile is his passion. Together with his dental nurse Christine, who is also a very humble person, they make you feel so important. I travelled from a remote area to restore my front teeth. After one consultation and assessment, this was done in one day! The technology, knowledge and expertise are top of the range. Thank you, Dr Roy, to you and your team! You are the best dentist ever!
