Treatments > Wisdom Tooth


Wisdom teeth are generally the last teeth to come through the gums. They usually start emerging in late teens or even older. Most people have four wisdom teeth and some might even have none. Wisdom teeth is located in the back four corners of your mouth. In many cases there is not enough space for wisdom teeth or there is little room in the rear of the jaw, leading to the tooth being wedged, causing discomfort , heavy pain, infection and swelling. Removal of wisdom teeth can be the solutions for all these syndromes.

The removal of wisdom teeth is a common procedure and all our dentists at Smile Dental Care Centre are qualified to carry out this procedure.

In the removal of wisdom teeth, the length and the type of the operation have to be analyzed first.

Our dentist will endeavor to make your procedure as painless as possible. Options available include topical and intravenous anesthetics as well as nitrous oxide (happy gas) on penthrox.

To reach the wisdom tooth, the dentist will cut your gum and maybe a part of your jawbone. In a simple case the operation wouldn't last longer than a couple of minutes, but in certain cases it might take up to 40 minutes to extract the teeth. Once the wisdom teeth are removed the doctor will close the wound with stitches.

In cases where the tooth is complicated to remove, we have an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will carry out the procedure. During your consultation, the dentist will advise on the best option for you. In the first time you will have to take extra care because of the side effects of anaesthetic and sedation. Our dentist will advise you what to do in case of pain. Stitches will be removed within about a week.
