Wisdom Teeth and Surgical Extractions

Don't let tooth ache hold you back

Teeth may need to be removed for a number of reasons

Most commonly due to pain caused by infection, decay or being heavily broken down.

Leaving problematic teeth in can be very dangerous in certain situations.

With no waiting list and everything under one roof

We have a specialist oral surgeon on our team working also at the dental hospital taking referrals for tooth extractions and other aspects of oral surgery from dentists around Yorkshire.

The waiting list for tooth extractions is often well over 6 months and commonly unfortunately can be over a year. Most of our patients are seen for an initial assessment within 1-2 weeks and the tooth extracted within 2 weeks.

 

On site we have gold standard panoramic x-ray and CT imaging machines to ensure everything can be completed under one roof.

Wisdom teeth commonly cause painful problems

Wisdom teeth are the most commonly impacted teeth.

If there isn't enough space in your mouth they can 'half erupt' which can cause severe pain for a number of reasons:

  • Damage caused to the tooth in front

  • Irritation and infection of the gum over the tooth

  • Decay on the wisdom tooth as it's difficult/impossible to clean

  • Abscess formation

In rare, severe situations infections around your wisdom teeth can lead to:

  • Inability to open your mouth

  • Inability to swallow

  • Sepsis (infection of the blood)

To relieve and prevent complications often it is better to take your wisdom teeth out if they are causing problems.

You have to be careful taking teeth out

There are many risks and considerations that must be accounted for when taking teeth out. 

The risks are often higher with wisdom teeth.

Care must be taken to preserve and not cause any unnecessary damage to the gums, neighbouring teeth and nerves which is why it is essential you seek out a clinic with expert clinicians and the gold standard x-ray imaging facilities to ensure your risks are as low as they can possibly be and you can feel confident you are in safe hands.

Never leave without a tooth

When removing a tooth planning with the end in mind is vital.

 

Whether it is for cosmetic reasons that you would like the tooth replaced or functional we can ensure you never walk out without a replacement tooth filling the space left. We offer everything from immediate removable plates to immediate dental implants.
