Wisdom tooth removal

Sometimes the wisdom teeth cannot erupt completely above the gum due to lack of space in the teeth arch. In some cases, the tooth is completely buried in the bone. These wisdom teeth are known as “impacted wisdom teeth”

Possible problems and complications:

  • Damage to the adjacent tooth causing tooth decay

  • Infection and inflammation in the surrounding gums

  • On and off pain in the wisdom tooth and jaws
  • Limited mouth opening
  • Bad smell due to difficulty in cleaning that area
  • Cheek biting
  • Cysts formation in the jaw bone

Depending on the amount of tooth in the bone, wisdom teeth may need a simple extraction or surgery.

Our dentist will carefully assess and explain whether you need a wisdom tooth removal in order to avoid further complications.

Our dental team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal treatment is as painless and comfortable as possible. After care is provided free of charge to ensure a smooth healing process.
