Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth usually erupt during your late teens or early twenties and due to their late eruption they can fail to erupt completely, be partially emerged or remain under the gum (impacted wisdom tooth).
Your wisdom tooth/teeth may need to be removed for the following reasons:
- Wisdom teeth can be very difficult to clean, and are prone to tooth decay, gum disease and recurring infections.
- They can cause disruption to other teeth and even decay to adjacent teeth.
- Cysts and tumours can develop in tissues around the impacted wisdom teeth.
Straightforward removal of wisdom teeth may be done in our surgery.
However, if your case is much more complex, your Dentist may refer you to an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon.
