Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth can become a problem if they're too big for your jaw size, they emerge from the jaw crooked or they're impacted and don't come down through the gum. This can lead to series of problems including pain, swelling, bad breath and also decay in the adjacent teeth.

We will assess the condition of your wisdom teeth at regular check ups and when a problem is identified, wisdom tooth extraction is often the best course. This is usually a minor surgical procedure, using local anesthetic or we can organize a referral to the oral surgeon.

There can be some discomfort following the procedure, but it is usually minimal and short-lived.
