Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are generally the last teeth moving into position in the jaw line. Predominantly they erupt without and complications however problems can occur when they don’t erupt into the correct position or only partially erupt. These complications are often painful, requiring and efficient response to resolve the issue.

When there is not enough space in the jaw for the wisdom teeth to erupt they can grow into other teeth. This is known as impacted wisdom teeth the pressure caused can not only be painful but also force other teeth out of their correct alignment. If the teeth do not fully erupt they can leave pockets of gum tissue partially exposed which can result in painful, recurrent infection.

The recommended treatment option for these problems is the removal of one or all the wisdom teeth. Often this may be completed at the practice n a single visit; however for more severe cases it can be done under general anaesthetic at the local hospital.
