Wisdom Teeth Removal

Our third molars, known as ‘wisdom teeth’ are prone to problems since they are the last to erupt (come through) and usually there is not enough space left in the mouth. As a result, they can erupt sideways, partially or become trapped (impacted) and this can lead to pain, infection and facial swelling.

Often, the best remedy for impacted or poorly positioned wisdom teeth is extraction (removal). Wisdom teeth removal is a fairly common oral surgery, often performed by an oral surgeon, although some general dentists do have the skills required to remove wisdom teeth.
