INCLUDING WISDOM TEETH

Sometimes it may be necessary to remove one or more teeth, whether due to infection, trauma, overcrowding or lack of space (as in the case of wisdom teeth). Our experienced dentists will let you know if extraction is necessary and explain your treatment options, including the replacement of any missing teeth. 

Tooth Extraction and Wisdom Teeth Removal

What does this treatment include?

  • Removal or one or more teeth from the jawbone
  • Before the procedure we will take x-rays of your mouth in order to fully understand the issue and plan the procedure
  • We provide sedation options to ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible
  • A detailed plan for post-extraction care at home

When do I need this?

Tooth removal may be necessary after a severe infection, if you have extensive decay or advanced gum disease, or if a tooth has broken in a way that it can’t be repaired. Sometimes teeth need to be removed prior to orthodontic treatment.

The extraction of wisdom teeth is fairly commonplace today. As the human jawbone has evolved to become smaller over time, these large molars no longer have the space they need. Wisdom teeth often become an issue in the later teenage years. It is usually best to remove them early, to avoid damage to the surrounding teeth and minimise future complications.
