Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last to appear (starting to come through in your teens) and sometimes there simply isn’t enough room for them, so they might come through at an awkward angle, pressing against the teeth in front or the bone behind.
If this happens you’ll know (from the pain!) and so our first priority would be to get you in for a scan to see exactly what’s going on. As your wisdom teeth push through, the surrounding gum can become inflamed and sore, and if there isn’t enough room for your tooth, or if it’s causing damage to other teeth, you’re better off removing it.
This is pretty common and nothing to worry about, but not worrying is easier said than done right? If the thought of having a tooth out fills you with dread you’re in luck because our oral surgeon Arie is also an expert at sedation and he’s experienced at using it to help extremely nervous patients relax enough to undergo any dental treatment they need.
