Some wisdom teeth erupt with no pain or discomfort at all and will not need removing. Others may only partially erupt and show signs of decay, causing a cavity. Wisdom teeth can also be very painful and become infected.
Depending on the position of your wisdom tooth/teeth will depend on how difficult the removal will be. Your Surgeon will assess the clinical situation, view your radiograph and discuss with you the treatment options available.
Discomfort or severe pain from your wisdom teeth requires a consultation with a our in-house Dentists or Specialist Oral Surgeons. They will advise you on any necessary treatment required, whether conservative or surgical.

A radiograph (x-ray) is taken which locates the position of your wisdom teeth. This also helps to assess how difficult a possible extraction may be.
Routine, difficult or impacted wisdom teeth can be removed with local anaesthetic, under sedation or general anaesthetic, as appropriate, by a Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon or Specialist Oral Surgeon.
At Parkway Clinic we have all the facilities to provide Local Anaesthetic (with or without Sedation) or General Anaesthetic. Your Surgeon and Anaesthetist can discuss your needs and advise you on what is best.
Upper wisdom teeth are usually quite straightforward to remove and do not generally cause too much discomfort. You will be advised on how to care for your socket and given an advice leaflet to take home with you.
If lower wisdom teeth are buried in bone, their removal can be quite difficult. The bone will be removed, the tooth extracted and dissolvable stitches inserted in the gum. Swelling, reduced mouth opening and discomfort are all normal after these operations and may continue for several days.
