Removal of Wisdom Teeth

What is the removal of wisdom teeth?

Removal of wisdom teeth is the extraction of your third molars. These four teeth are the last teeth to develop at the back of your mouth, in each corner of your upper and lower jaws and can cause dental problems.

The removal of wisdom teeth is just that. It is usually a quick procedure to remove a wisdom tooth that is causing dental problems, taking up to 20 minutes.

It is typically, performed under a local anaesthetic to numb the area around your tooth. You can expect to feel some pressure just before your tooth is removed. This is your surgeon rocking your tooth back and forth to widen your tooth socket. They may make a small cut in your gum to uncover your tooth, and the tooth may need to be divided into smaller pieces before it is removed.
