Often, people between the ages of 17-21 experience the growth of wisdom teeth, which can cause pain and discomfort. Some common signs that you need to have wisdom teeth removed are:

Impacted teeth: In many cases, wisdom teeth become impacted and don't have adequate space to grow. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause many problems, such as pain, bleeding, swelling in the gums, and jaw pain.

Incorrect growth: Wisdom teeth that don't grow correctly take up too much space. In these cases, it is impossible to straighten them with braces, and removal is the only option.

Pain and discomfort: Crooked and impacted wisdom teeth can cause severe pain, which only an extraction can help relieve.

Cavities: It might be difficult to clean your teeth properly because of the wisdom teeth, which can lead to cavities.

On top of this, wisdom teeth can cause cysts, sinus issues and inflamed gums. Contact us if you have an issue with your wisdom teeth. We can provide you with an emergency appointment if your pain is unbearable.


Occasionally, impacted and improperly growing wisdom teeth cause pain and discomfort.


You can consider the following benefits of removing wisdom teeth:

We follow a straightforward procedure for wisdom teeth removal, which involves:

Initial consultation

The procedure:

  • Application of anesthesia

  • Tissue removal

  • Bone removal

  • Loosening and sectioning the tooth

  • Tooth removal

  • Stitches


Generally, the stitches take 7-14 days to dissolve. Sometimes, we might prescribe antibiotics to help with the pain and swelling.


Proper aftercare is crucial for a better recovery and to ensure your oral health remains at its best. Here are some essential aftercare tips to follow: 

  • Manage discomfort: It's normal to experience discomfort and swelling after the procedure. Use prescribed pain relievers as directed by your dentist. Applying ice packs can help reduce swelling and numb the area. 


  • Bite gently on gauze: Bite gently on the gauze pad placed over the treated area to control bleeding. Change the gauze as needed, and bite down for the recommended time to aid in clot formation. 


  • Oral hygiene: Maintain good oral hygiene, but be gentle around the surgical sites. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush for brushing and rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water several times daily to keep the area clean. 


  • Follow medication instructions: If prescribed antibiotics, take the full course as directed. They are crucial in preventing infections. 


  • Attend follow-up appointments: Attend your scheduled follow-up appointments with your dentist. They will monitor your progress report and address any concerns you might have. 


If you experience excessive bleeding, severe pain, or any other concerns beyond the expected discomfort, contact us. Your comfort and well-being are our priorities, and we're here to support you throughout your recovery. 


Remember, every patient's recovery is unique. Follow these guidelines to ensure a swift and complication-free healing process.
