If you do need wisdom teeth removed, we will ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. Local anaesthesia will keep you comfortable during treatment, and we can remove partially erupted wisdom teeth quite quickly. When a tooth is stuck in the jaw, we make a tiny opening in the jawbone to expose it. We may choose to section or cut the tooth into smaller pieces, so removing it is more comfortable for you.
Usually, healing is fairly quick and straightforward after wisdom teeth are removed, and any tenderness can be relieved with over the counter painkillers. However, we will provide full instructions on caring for your mouth as it heals, including how to keep the surgery site clean until it has sufficiently healed so you can brush it gently. We will also advise you on what to eat as it can be more comfortable to stick to soft, cooler foods for the first few days.
As with any treatment provided here at Jetty Road Dental Clinic, our friendly team is always here to offer more advice and help whenever required.
