Dental extractions

Surgical and non-surgical

Wisdom tooth extractions

Wisdom teeth usually grow through the gums in your late teens or early twenties. These teeth may require extraction due to crowding, pain, infection, or decay. A complete x-ray of the mouth is used to determine whether the extraction will be surgical or non-surgical. In most cases, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia.
Your attending dentist may usually need to perform general wisdom tooth extractions, otherwise if needed, they may perform specialized oral surgery.

Simple extraction

Tooth extraction can be performed easily if the location and direction of the imputation and the shape of the tooth root are relatively simple.

Complex extraction

Extraction of teeth can be difficult if the location of the tooth is not suitable or if the shape of the root is difficult during treatment.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are molars that often grow and develop between the ages of 17 to 25. We usually have four wisdom teeth – two upper and two lower. However, some people may only grow two and others may not have wisdom teeth at all.

What can wisdom teeth cause?

If the wisdom teeth are healthy and aligned, you can keep them. If they are impacted or misaligned, they can cause internal damage to your other existing teeth as they grow. If wisdom teeth are not properly cleaned, they can build up tartar and even rot.

How do I know if I need an extraction?

Wisdom teeth require extraction if they are decayed, infected, affected, or causing severe pain. If you experience pain in your jaw, gums, or even suffer from a headache, wisdom teeth may be the cause. A thorough examination and consultation helps determine if an extraction is necessary.

Wisdom teeth and orthodontics

Wisdom teeth can be removed to avoid crowding the teeth as part of orthodontic treatment. Wisdom teeth may need to be removed to make room for other teeth to straighten or stay straight.

What to expect after having a wisdom tooth removed?

Most often, the recovery period lasts about 2 to 4 days. Your dental doctors will prescribe pain relievers to help you cope with the side effects. The following tips will help you recover quickly:

  • Apply pressure to your teeth with a gauze pad at regular intervals as it becomes soaked in blood. If the bleeding persists after 24 hours, it is important that you call your dentist here at the Dental Clinic.
  • Avoid lying down horizontally as this can make you bleed more regularly.
  • Use an ice pack around the outside of your mouth to reduce swelling and pain.
  • Do not participate in any strenuous physical activity for at least 2 days;
  • Eat soft foods.
  • Rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times a day
