Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Wisdom teeth also known as third molars, are a set of four teeth that erupt into the back four corners of the mouth, behind the 12 year old molars. This usually occurs between the ages of 17 to 21. Not everyone has wisdom teeth and nowadays it is common not to have wisdom teeth.
Depending on the size of your teeth and your jaw, there might be enough room for the wisdom teeth to come through. Sometimes there may not be enough room leading to the tooth being wedged causing discomfort and pain. The discomfort and pain can come and go. Our dentists can give you advice on the best option for you. If you do need to extract the tooth, our experienced dentists can do it for you.
In cases where the tooth is deeply wedged in the bone we can make a prompt referral to an oral surgeon who will carry out the treatment for you.
