Your wisdom teeth are the third set of molars at the back of the mouth and are usually the last teeth to come through.

Unfortunately, in some people, wisdom teeth have the tendency to misbehave. We may need to remove them if they become infected or decayed, as this can lead to the emergence of painful symptoms and problems that could compromise your oral health.

Wisdom tooth removal: the process

Your wisdom teeth are removed under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel anything during the procedure. The time it takes will depend on how your wisdom teeth sit in your mouth. Whilst straightforward cases can take as little as 20 minutes, it may take longer if your wisdom teeth are sitting in a particularly awkward position. We’ll go through what to expect with you prior to treatment so that you’re fully informed and comfortable.


When is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth don’t grow like other teeth and when they become impacted, they sit in a more angular position. In many people, wisdom teeth can become stuck under the gum or only partially able to come through the gum. This can cause unpleasant symptoms like swelling, tenderness and abscesses, which can go on to affect neighbouring teeth.

At what age do people develop wisdom teeth?

Most people will have their wisdom teeth come through in their late teens, though it’s not unusual to develop them as a pre-teen or an adult.

However, not all people have their wisdom teeth come through; some people don’t develop any wisdom teeth.

Can I have my wisdom teeth removed under sedation?

We can offer IV sedation to patients who are feeling nervous about having their wisdom teeth removed.
