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.

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.

Extremely happy with the service, and efficiencyPhil, South Africa, 13 10 22

TMJ assessment- found issues with Jaw alignment. First step is some exercises to try, to determine if this helps and if it is an answer to long term issues I have been experiencing with earache, ear 'fullness', extreme tinnitus, neck pain. Also discovered a previous tooth restoration had been rotting from the inside, so scheduled an immediate follow up to open it clean it and restore it. Extremely happy with the service, and efficiency and full explanations of what was going on, and what to do. Thanks team!!!
