Wisdom Teeth 

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow into the dental arch. They generally appear between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five. Wisdom teeth can cause various dental problems including overcrowding of existing teeth and growing sideways (impacting), either onto the neighbouring teeth or the gums.

 

Removal of wisdom teeth is the best way to avoid such problems occuring. A local anaesthetic, which numbs the nerves in the teeth and gums can be used for simple, straightforward removals. For patients whose teeth are difficult to remove or who experience anexiety, there is also the option of a general anesthetic, which puts you to sleep for the duration of the procedure.

It is strongly advised that patients who have been sedated do not drive straight after the procedure, and have a family member or friend provide transport home. It is also reccommended to take it easy for approximately a week following surgery, or until the pain subsides. Patients also commonly experience swelling of the jaw, which can take 4 to 5 days to go down. Applying ice immediately after the removal of wisdom teeth can assist in managing this.
