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 was a person, was always treated with kindness, respect, and friendshipAlan, UK, 04 05 18

On my first visit to the SmileLux office at Milton Keynes, I was greeted by smiling faces, offered a drink, and guided to the comfortable waiting area. I knew I was somewhere special when I found magazines on the table that were all current and even better, one was about food. I relaxed immediately. I was about to embark on a two-year journey wearing Invisalign retainers for 22hrs every day. I must admit that it felt like an impossible task as I was sure that I either ate or drank for much longer than that every day. Also, I was initially concerned how it might affect my speech. However, it soon became routine and I got so used to having them in that my speech was unaffected and they became part of the daily routine rather than something to be endured. They were just a part of life. My appointments with Sunil Hirani were unlike any previous visit to the dentists or the doctors or, as I will shortly come to, the hospital. I never once felt like anything less than a complete person while at SmileLux. I wasn’t a set of teeth or a problem to be fixed. I was a person and was always treated with kindness, respect, and friendship. It sounds obvious but it isn’t always the case. So, weeks passed and road marks were crossed as I completed six months, then 9, then a full year. Each set of aligners is numbered, so I counted them off month by month seeing the numbers rise. I was getting close to the end, number 42 out of 50, when things changed. I found that I had cancer. Actually, I had two – both apparently unrelated yet both in close proximity. One in a tonsil (Left) and one in the thyroid (also the left node). Two at once – wow, I was special at last. Clearly, with radio and chemotherapy on the horizon I would not be able to keep wearing the retainers full time so, after consultation with Sunil, it was decided that things could go on hold and I would keep wearing the current aligner overnight three or four times a week to keep things in position. Interesting times followed, during which I learned a number of interesting things about my treatments and a few more interesting things about myself. I could cope. In fact, I coped exceptionally well and went through my treatments with barely any concern. Chemotherapy, which I approached with some misgivings, having heard ‘stories’, turned out to be fine. I didn’t react badly to the chemicals used and actually felt better after a day’s treatment than I did at the start. Radiology gave my neck a suntan you wouldn’t believe! I can only assume that I was just very lucky. Things were detected in time, removed and the area treated. I had a session of Radio-iodine treatment as a ‘mopping-up’ measure, which involved me taking a tablet brought to me on a trolley and encased in a very heavy lead container. This is one of the ‘interesting times’ I mentioned. Cool, maybe I would glow in the dark. Apparently, some people thought they did but it was just the LED on the fire detector in the bathroom that caused that eerie effect when the light was turned off. Oh well, no superpowers then. After over a year of treatments and with nothing further, apart from check-ups, on the horizon, we decided it was time to go back to the aligners and I finally moved on to number 43. As always, appointments at SmileLux, were something to be looked forward to rather than something to feel trepidation about. It meant getting the next set in the number sequence. Once again, I was a person and treated almost as a family member. It was never anywhere to be afraid of going. Aligner numbers started to rise again and today I finally handed in number 50 along with much smiling and, a real surprise, a bottle of champagne and a congratulations card presented to me by the SmileLux team. I was always a bit self-conscious about my teeth, particularly the front ones at the top as they were quite V-shaped. As a child I recall my mother telling me that I had ‘gravestone’ teeth, as they tilted over in every direction. It was a bit of a joke and treatments of the type I had just completed simply weren’t available or just not an option. I lived with my teeth for 65 years, a time I thought to be far too long to do anything about it, but I was proven to be wrong. Two years, 50 aligners, with a bit of a gap for interesting things to happen, and I couldn’t be happier. Was it worth it? Yes! Undoubtedly. And cancer? Well, I have my regular check-ups and the ‘C’ word (Cured) won’t officially be used for a few more years, but it all looks very good. Just like my teeth. Thank you, guys. The best!

The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeingBill, Belfast, 13 06 18

Jessica at Cavehill has looked after my teeth since 2014. I have had fillings, crowns, bridges, root canal work and implants. She is highly competent, conscientious, skilful and empathic. I trust her completely to deliver the best treatment possible, to avoid unnecessary interventions and above all to cause minimum pain - she is particularly good at anaesthesia. I have recommended her to my friends. She will discuss the options available in detail and gives excellent value for money. I originally chose Cavehill in 1999 because I live nearby and friends recommended it. It was good even before Marty McAllister took over. Since then it has developed special expertise in implants and preventative hygiene. The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeing. When I have had a dental emergency, they have seen me within 24 hours.

Surgical Extractions  
Wisdom tooth may be extracted because it is causing you problems or perhaps to prevent problems that may arise in the future. Problems with wisdom teeth can arise because your jaw may not be large enough to accommodate them, and they may become impacted and unable to break through the gum properly. Any unerupted tooth that has formed but failed to emerge into the mouth can damage surrounding teeth, gums and supporting bone. Because of this risk, unerupted teeth are often surgically extracted. As already mentioned, this is often the case with wisdom teeth. However, it is common to find unerupted canine teeth sitting in the palate (roof of mouth). We can pull these teeth slowly into position with the use of orthodontic appliances after surgically exposing them.

Efficient and clearly explained treatmentBethan, UK, 15 12 17

I had booked an appointment at Cathedral Dental Clinic after waiting months to have my wisdom tooth removed on the NHS and with increasing pain in the tooth. Dr. Lesti was able to see me within a few days and after the initial appointment, I returned the next day to have my tooth removed. Everything was explained clearly and the extraction only took a few minutes. I recommend the clinic for efficient and clearly explained treatment! The clinic is welcoming and professional. Waiting time for appointments is days (rather than weeks as I have experienced in the past). I have had three appointments so far and each has been on time. Dr. Lesti clearly explained every stage of the treatment I required and set out a plan for future treatment that I can book when it suits me. I will be moving the whole family over to this clinic!

Dr Omar did a very good jobPete, UK, 24 12 19

My partner had to have most of her bottom teeth removed due to an inherited gum problem, she also had to have dentures fitted. Dr Omar did a very good job. He did a liitle work at a time as my partner was worried about the process. Although she would rather have natural teeth she is far happier with the look she has now than the one she had before so I would recommend this dental practice.
