including wisdom teeth
Extractions, including those of wisdom teeth, involves a surgical procedure. Our dentists are experienced oral surgeons and will explain the process involved, and care required after the operation.
WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE THEIR WISDOM TEETH REMOVED?
Most people have four wisdom teeth, two in the upper and two in the lower jaw. It is not uncommon for these teeth to become impacted. An impacted tooth is one which has not grown through the gum into the mouth or has grown only part way through, and is in an abnormal position. This is an unhealthy situation and the tooth should be removed to prevent problems with erosion, cysts, infection or crowding.
