Wisdom Teeth Removal

Public Recommendation

  • Some people suffer from overcrowding of teeth within the mouth, often exacerbated when the wisdom teeth break through.
  • On many occasions, wisdom teeth are incorrectly positioned in the mouth, they can potentially cause tooth decay on the teeth next to them and cannot be easily corrected.
  • They can cause severe pain and inflammation of the gum. In these situations, the removal of the wisdom teeth may be the best alternative.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common surgical procedures carried out in the UK.

  • A wisdom tooth extraction will start with the administration of local anaesthetic and the wisdom teeth will be removed during the same dental appointment.

Tooth extraction

Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from your jaw bone.

  • Tooth extraction usually occurs when there is too much damage to a tooth and it simply cannot be repaired.
  • Decay, infection and crowding are other key triggers for tooth removal. For Regular extractions patients receive a local anaesthetic, which numbs the area around your tooth so you’ll feel only pressure, not pain, during the procedure.
  • The dentist then uses an instrument called an elevator to loosen the tooth and forceps to remove it. Tooth extraction is usually a quick procedure. When you have a damaged tooth, your dentist will aim to fix it and save the tooth by using dental treatments such as root canals, crowns or fillings.

If the tooth is too badly damaged then extraction is needed.

  • Excessive tooth decay, tooth infection, and crowding can also lead to tooth extractions.
  • Those who get braces may need one or two teeth removed to provide room for their other teeth as they shift into place.
  • Additionally, those who are undergoing chemotherapy or are about to have an organ transplant may need compromised teeth removed in order to keep their mouth healthy.

Sedation

  • Going to the dentist should not be an uncomfortable experience, but if fear or anxiety is keeping you from making an appointment, sedation treatment may be the right option for you.
  • We can provide the vast majority of dental treatments under conscious sedation to make the dental procedure easier and provide a better experience.
  • Often nervous patients or people who have had bad experiences at the dentist will prefer to have sedation for their treatments as opposed to having the treatment carried out by the administration of local anaesthetic alone.
  • These sedation techniques will help you to relax while at the chair and take your mind away of the procedure being carried out. It involves a sedative drug being administered before the dental treatment, helping the patient to forget the surrounding clinical environment, reducing the anxiety and to relax.
  • The sedation may also help to numb your mouth depending on the sedative agent being used.
  • The dental procedure is then carried out as normal, with minimal disruption and a very limited lasting memory of the treatment for the patient.
