Although third molars or wisdom teeth may be asymptomatic problems such as pain in the jaw, soreness, swelling around the gums, discharge if an abscess or infection is present, or feeling of pressure through the gum below your second molar are all signs of problematic wisdom teeth which require removal.
A detailed diagnostic workup is done before we decide to remove impacted wisdom teeth which includes dental examination and if necessary, 3D diagnostic (CBCT) scans are performed to assess the position of the wisdom teeth teeth and how they are impacted. We’ll then devise a treatment strategy and provide you with recommendations. On the day of treatment, our surgeon will elevate the gum tissue to reveal the wisdom tooth (or teeth) and remove any small bits of bone or aberrant structures that are impeding the growth path with state-of-the-art instruments and techniques. If your wisdom teeth have already grown in, you won’t need to expose them. Teeth are sometimes cut into smaller pieces to make extraction easier. Finally, the surgeon will sew the surgical site(s) and you will be allowed to rest while your anaesthetic wears off.
Wisdom tooth which need removal may require a small surgery to treat. At the SMILE DENTAL CLINIC, our surgeons are skilled and highly equipped to handle these procedures. We ensure that the procedure is painless and comfortable so that it does not affect your routine and allows you to continue working without interfering much with your lifestyle and eating habits.
