Necessary removal to eliminate pain and infection

The guidelines for extraction of wisdom teeth differ depending on the country. Generally it is considered acceptable to carry out wisdom teeth removal if you are suffering from recurrent pain and infection, the wisdom tooth or adjacent tooth is decayed or you have lost bone around the wisdom tooth and this bone loss is compromising the tooth next door.

Removal of a wisdom tooth can be very straightforward and often takes far less time than placing a filling, especially for upper wisdom teeth. Lower wisdom teeth can increase the difficulty, especially if the location makes them difficult to access or they are impacted, or partially buried in the gum. The difficulty of the removal of your wisdom tooth will be assessed at your emergency consultation or initial examination. For wisdom teeth considered beyond the scope of our general dentists we have a specialist oral surgeon working at the practice.
