Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the 3rd and last set of molars that most people get in their late teens.  The maximum number of these teeth is four and in most people by 25 years they are already out. When they grow properly there is no need to worry but in most cases they cause a lot of problems leading to pain and discomfort.  Some of the common problems necessitating wisdom tooth removal include when the tooth doesn’t fully erupt into the mouth and if your mouth is too small to accommodate more teeth.

WHY REMOVE WISDOM TEETH?

The following situations necessitate removal of wisdom teeth:

  • When a tooth can’t grow properly
  • Infection or decay in the tooth
  • Painful growth
  • Decayed tooth

WHAT TO EXPECT

Wisdom teeth extraction is a surgical procedure that involves providing anaesthetic to reduce any pain during removal. The process normally takes one sitting but can extend to two depending on the position of the tooth. You will experience some discomfort after the anaesthetic wears off but this goes away with time.
