What is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom Tooth Extraction is the removal of 1 to 4 of your permanent adult teeth, which are found at the back corners of your mouth, on the top and bottom. These teeth tend to come through much later than your other permanent teeth -- usually during late adolescence or early adulthood. Problems can arise if there isn't enough room in your mouth for them, and you may experience infection and/or discomfort.
Who is Wisdom Tooth Extraction for?
Wisdom Tooth Extraction for people with skew or stunted wisdom teeth growth, from growing at an uncomfortable angle, showing up late, or even not coming through at all.
What are the benefits?
You’ll eliminate any current or future pain caused by an ‘erupted’ wisdom tooth; this will help avoid pericoronitis (swollen, irritated or infected gum tissue).
And because wisdom teeth can grow into areas that make them very difficult to clean, you’ll also reduce your risk of gum disease and decay.
What happens During Surgery?
Wisdom Tooth Extraction takes 10-60 minutes, depending on how many wisdom teeth are giving you trouble. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic.
How long will I stay in hospital?
You should go home the same day.
What is my recovery time?
You should avoid solid food for 24 hours, and keeping your head elevated for 3 days will speed up your recovery.
