Wisdom Teeth

With over 35 years experience in complex wisdom tooth extractions, the dentists in our clinic can make an otherwise unpleasant experience so much more comfortable and pain free.

We appreciate and understand the associated anxiety which comes with people requiring to have their wisdom teeth removed. That’s why we have made sure that our patients have all options available to help them feel more comfortable. 

Our patients are given the choice of having these procedures under:

  • IV Sedation (‘put to sleep’) to help anxious patients
  • Local Anaesthetic.

Our aim is that the tooth extraction is done in the most conservative way to ensure that your recovery is quicker and easier so that you can return back to your regular life!

Our dentists will be able to discuss with you further as to how this procedure can be done to suit your individual needs.

Common Questions.

We have compiled a few general questions relating to Wisdom Teeth, if you have a question of your own please don’t hesitate to contact our team.

How many appointments are involved?

Two appointments, the first being to take a CBCT (3D X-ray) to assess the exact position of the teeth in relation to important anatomical structures. The second being the removal of the wisdom teeth.

When is the best time to remove?

This depends on variety of factors:

  • Current location of wisdom teeth
  • How developed the teeth are i.e root formation
  • Does the current space allow for the wisdom teeth to come through in the mouth normally

Fun Fact:

Generally foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid are harmful to tooth enamel. Acidic foods and drinks (soft drinks, citric juices, sports drinks) can cause tooth erosion while high sugar content is more likely to contribute to tooth decay (cavities).
