Oral Surgery & Wisdom Teeth

 *Patient of Dr. Golestani

Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt; they usually appear when a person is in their late teens or early twenties.

At Dental 359 our experienced team will look after your wisdom teeth removal.

Wisdom teeth that only partially erupted (impacted) or come in crooked can also lead to painful crowding and infection. Teeth removed before the age of 20 have less developed roots and fewer complications. The American Dental Association recommends that people between 16 and 19 have their wisdom teeth evaluated to see if they need to be removed.

If the wisdom teeth are impacted and embedded in the bone, at Dental 359 we will put an incision into the gums and remove the tooth or teeth in sections in order to minimize the amount of bone being removed.

You will require a Consultation and X-rays for your wisdom teeth removal.

The most common reasons for removing wisdom teeth are;

  • Gum infection
  • Decay
  • Pressure pain
  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment
  • Prosthetic reasons
  • Cyst formation

At Dental 359 you can opt to have your wisdom teeth removed under local anaesthesia in the chair or under a general anaesthetic in a day hospital.

To preserve your natural teeth for life,
while maintaining your oral health at the highest level.
