Wisdom teeth and dental extractions
Wisdom teeth can cause problems during eruption due to the fact there is not a lot of space for them to come through. As a consequence of this, they may remain partially or completely below the line of the gum (also called impaction). This can lead to an infection around the wisdom tooth and possibly problems to adjacent teeth.
We have in-practice most technological advanced digital 3D scan which enables us to carry out comprehensive diagnostics prior to any teeth extractions.
Sedation is offered for teeth extractions if required.
There are specific guidelines for the removal of these impacted wisdom teeth which the dentist will advise you on. The procedure requires the gum around the tooth to be lifted back and the bone around the tooth to be selectively removed to allow the wisdom tooth to be removed.
