Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last to emerge, coming through when the jaw is fully developed and when there is often too little space for more teeth. The lack of room can lead to wisdom teeth becoming impacted,where they try to come through underneath adjacent teeth, or they might try to push sideways through the gums.
Impacted wisdom teeth can be painful and may damage existing teeth so it is important to remove them. We can assess the position of any wisdom teeth yet to erupt using digital dental x-rays or an OPG and will recommend their removal if there is no hope they can erupt properly. We do plan this type of oral surgery very carefully and will remove any problem wisdom teeth using local anaesthetic.
If removal is likely to be quite complex, we may refer you to a local oral and maxillofacial surgeon for more specialised dental treatment. This will be someone we know and trust and of course Vogue Family Dental will still be here to answer any questions you may have before, during and after treatment.
