Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth may not always cause problems but while they’re breaking out through the gum, they often do. If a wisdom tooth shows any potential for causing pain, discomfort, misalignment or damage, then an early extraction is wiser than waiting for it to come out.

As the name suggests, this procedure is the removal or extraction of wisdom teeth that are problematic or could potentially cause problems. The wisdom tooth removal process is as follows:

  • A special x-ray is done at our clinic to assess the position of your wisdom teeth, their roots and their proximity to certain nerves in your jaw.
  • To ensure you are comfortable, we will provide a local anaesthetic to numb the tooth and its surroundings. A general anaesthetic is rarely needed but can be provided to those with severe dental anxiety, for instance.
  • Next, we perform the extraction. If the tooth hasn’t come out of the gum yet, we will make a slight incision to reach it. In some cases, the tooth can be removed hole by rocking it back and forth in the tooth socket, but in other cases, it may need to be broken into multiple pieces. This process can take anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
  • We will stitch the gum and place gauze over the area, ensuring you keep it pressed in place to allow a blood clot to form.

After this, we will provide you with any aftercare instructions and let you know when and if you should get in touch with us in case of any complications, though these are rare.

At Liberty Dental, we ensure the best standards of treatment, working with highly qualified oral and dental surgeons. Our in house specialist is able to deal with even the most complex cases.

So, if you believe you may need wisdom tooth extraction, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We understand that it’s not a walk in the park, so we do what we can to prioritise your comfort, minimise pain, and ensure a safe and smooth recovery.
