Many people have problems with their wisdom teeth, the third set of molar teeth which grows at 18-25 years of age. They may not grow through the gums properly and can cause problems for the gums or other back teeth.
We will assess your wisdom teeth and if required, can remove them safely under local or general anesthetic wisdom teeth/ third molars, erupt or grow at the back of a person's gums and are the last teeth to come through. Most people have four wisdom teeth, one in each jaw corner.
The eruption and growth of the wisdom tooth may lead to pain. A broken wisdom tooth also causes pain, and proper treatment is needed.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove an impacted tooth that is placed at the back. If an impacted wisdom tooth causes pain or other oral issues then we will advise removing the tooth.
