FAQ

Your dentist should be able to tell you if you need a tooth or teeth removed for your overall oral health and comfort. If you are unsure of your dentist’s recommendation regarding your teeth, don’t hesitate to get a second opinion from another dental professional. In many instances, whether or not you need a tooth extracted is not a black and white issue: there may be both benefits and drawbacks to your choices. Your dentist should be able to discuss these pros and cons with you at length.

Wisdom teeth (or third molars) are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth and are the furthest teeth from the front of the mouth.
Wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 18-21 but this can vary between patients.

No, in many cases, wisdom teeth erupt fully into the mouth into full function and behave exactly like any other tooth. Where a wisdom tooth remains fully buried, often it can be left alone if it is expected not to cause any problems. Diseased or potentially problematic wisdom teeth should be removed.

  • Infection around a partially erupted wisdom tooth.
  • Unrestorable decay or badly broken down tooth.
  • Decay of the adjacent tooth caused by the wisdom tooth.
  • Cyst formation etc.
  • For orthodontic or prosthetic reasons.

This is because of a number of factors;

  • The jaw bone in this area is particularly dense.
  • The roots of wisdom teeth can be multiple and at unfavorable angulations.
  • The wisdom tooth is often partially covered by gum and jaw bone.
  • Nerves, blood vessels and the adjacent teeth need to be taken into consideration during the procedure.

No, in general:

  • Lower wisdom tooth removal is more difficult than upper wisdom tooth removal.
  • Difficulty increases with the degree of impaction.
  • Difficulty increases if the tooth is grossly decayed.
  • Difficulty increases with age (the ideal time for removal is in the 20s & 30s).
  • No, we will ensure that your mouth is fully numb using local anesthesia- you will feel pinches in your mouth.
  • You will not feel the cut in your mouth.
  • You will feel some pushing and pressure; this is not pain and is unavoidable.
  • The drilling feels exactly like the sensation of having a filling and is not painful.
  • We will advise/prescribe pain killers to make your recovery more comfortable.
  • Stitches do not hurt.

This depends on the degree of impaction, the number of teeth and your own particular healing! After the procedure, expect some soreness, swelling, bruising, bleeding & some limited mouth opening. This is usually well controlled with the prescribed pain medications.
Everyone has a small possibility of infection or dry socket following an extraction. The pre and post-operative instructions aim to reduce this risk.

Altered sensation to the lip/chin & tongue is a rare but recognized complication of lower wisdom tooth removal. This is seen in a fraction of a percent of patients. Each individual’s risk can only be assessed following a consultation with an oral surgeon. By having your wisdom teeth removed by an experienced specialist oral surgeon you can minimize (but not eliminate) this risk.
