Simple pain free removal of wisdom teeth
Surgical removal of third molar (wisdom teeth) is a simple procedure that is performed to relieve discomfort caused by overcrowding, decay, gum disease and impacted teeth. It is usually carried out under local anaesthetic and involves the use of small hand tools to remove the teeth.
A patient may need to visit their dentist regularly after surgery to have the stitches and sutures removed, and any wounds healed. After your third molars have been removed it is recommended that you don’t eat or drink anything hard, such as ice cream, for 24 hours to prevent complications. You should also avoid alcohol and cigarettes until your recovery is complete.
The surgery itself lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.

Wisdom Tooth Removal: Relieving Pain and Preventing Future Dental Issues
What are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge in your mouth, typically appearing between the ages of 17 and 25. While they can be a valuable asset to your dental health, they can also cause pain and complications if they do not emerge correctly or are impacted.
The Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure
The wisdom tooth removal procedure typically involves the following steps:
- Step 1: Examination: Your dentist will examine your mouth, take x-rays and assess your symptoms to determine if you require wisdom tooth removal.
- Step 2: Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to numb the affected area and ensure your comfort during the procedure.
- Step 3: Extraction: The wisdom teeth are extracted using specialized tools and techniques that minimize discomfort and trauma to the surrounding tissues.
- Step 4: Post-Extraction Care: Your dentist will provide instructions for post-extraction care, including managing discomfort, preventing infection, and promoting proper healing.
Caring for Your Oral Health after Wisdom Tooth Removal
Proper care is essential to promote optimal healing and prevent complications after wisdom tooth removal. It includes following your dentist’s post-operative instructions, such as avoiding hard or chewy foods, maintaining good oral hygiene, and scheduling follow-up appointments with your dentist.
