Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Ensuring Comfort and Oral Health

Expert Care for the Removal of Troublesome Wisdom Teeth

At Care For Smiles, we understand that the emergence of wisdom teeth can be a challenging and sometimes painful experience. Wisdom teeth extraction is a common dental procedure that our experienced team performs with precision and care to ensure your comfort and promote optimal oral health.

Why Wisdom Teeth Extraction?

  1. Limited Space: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often emerge when there is insufficient space in the jaw. This can lead to misalignment, crowding, and potential damage to neighbouring teeth.

  2. Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth may become impacted, partially emerging or remaining trapped beneath the gumline. This can lead to pain, infection, and potential damage to surrounding structures.

  3. Prevention of Oral Issues: Removing problematic wisdom teeth can prevent a range of oral issues, including infection, inflammation, and the development of cysts or tumours.

How Wisdom Teeth Extraction Works

  1. Assessment: Dr. Rishay Naidoo will assess the position, alignment, and overall condition of your wisdom teeth using diagnostic tools such as X-rays.

  2. Anaesthesia: Before the extraction, the area around the wisdom teeth is numbed with local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

  3. Extraction: Using advanced techniques, Dr. Rishay will carefully remove the wisdom teeth. In some cases, the teeth may be sectioned to facilitate safe extraction.

  4. Closure: The extraction sites are gently cleaned, and stitches may be placed if necessary. Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided to support a smooth recovery.

Common Questions About Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort during the extraction. Post-extraction, any mild discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Recovery times vary, but most individuals can resume normal activities within a few days to a week. Dr. Rishay will provide personalised aftercare instructions.

Wisdom teeth extraction is not necessary for everyone, but it is recommended when there is a risk of complications or oral health issues.
