Teeth removal at Dental Clinic London is a suitable solution if you experience discomfort, infections and pain from wisdom teeth. The procedure is effective, and we use materials and techniques to make you feel comfortable and ensure precise teeth removal. Our experienced and fully qualified dentists oversee and perform wisdom teeth removal in London, so you will be in good and safe hands.

Wisdom teeth are the last four molars to emerge on each side of the jaw at the back of the jawline. Many people have four wisdom teeth, but they may not come in at all for some people. Wisdom teeth usually erupt between ages 18 – 24 and can cause certain problems due to the jaws being too small to accommodate the full set of 32 teeth.

Most people have space for 28 teeth, and wisdom teeth removal in these cases doesn't affect the performance of other teeth, provided they are complete and healthy.

What is wisdom teeth removal?

Wisdom teeth removal is a common oral surgery procedure. Wisdom teeth come in at the back of the mouth, usually from adolescence to early adulthood.

The late development of wisdom teeth means they may grow in an already crowded mouth and erupt at crooked angles or fail to erupt fully. This may cause impacted wisdom teeth that need removal.

If you experience discomfort from your wisdom teeth, we recommend visiting the clinic to consult with our experienced dentist. If you don't remove an impacted wisdom tooth, it may result in gum disease, abscess, dental decay and cellulitis. So, an early appointment, necessary x-rays and removal are important.

Impacted wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth may not fully emerge because the existing teeth prevent them, which may need removal. Our experienced and highly skilled oral surgeons at Dental Clinic London will surgically remove an impacted wisdom tooth, usually under local anaesthesia.

The symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth that needs removal include swelling around the jaw, headache, jaw ache, bleeding or swollen gums and halitosis (bad breath). However, some people with impacted wisdom teeth do not show these symptoms. This makes regular check-ups and X-rays important.

Treatment options for impacted wisdom teeth

  • No treatment is necessary if the impacted teeth aren't causing any problems.
  • Antibiotics may be necessary if swelling or pus is around the impacted teeth.
  • Wisdom teeth that have caused gum disease, infection, tooth decay or cyst formation may need extraction.

During your first consultation, we will perform a 2D x-ray and if needed, organise for a 3D CBCT scan of the wisdom teeth to see how close the wisdom tooth's root is to vital tissues and surrounding nerves. If the wisdom tooth is close to the surrounding nerve and vital tissues, the options will be discussed and for the most complex cases, may need referral to a oral and maxillofacial consultant.

Procedure for wisdom teeth removal

Our experienced and dedicated oral surgeons, will decide if your wisdom teeth removal is necessary during the initial consultation.

While some clinics refer patients who need wisdom teeth extraction to the hospital for treatment, our clinic is fully equipped for extremely impacted teeth removal. Only the most complex are referred.

Wisdom teeth removal can be under local anaesthesia, but nervous patients may get oral or IV sedation to aid relaxation. Each impacted tooth extraction or impacted wisdom tooth removal is different and requires different techniques.

Our oral surgeons are experienced in oral surgery and will explain your wisdom teeth removal in detail.

Wisdom teeth removal Aftercare

Impacted wisdom tooth removal or wisdom tooth extraction, like any surgical procedure, has some risks, such as pain, numbness and jaw stiffness. Experiencing some pain after wisdom tooth extraction is normal, but over-the-counter painkillers can help reduce the pain.

At your initial appointment, our team will inform you of necessary aftercare tips and their importance. This may include avoiding rinsing your mouth for 12 – 24 hours and eating softer food in the first few days after your surgery. Ensure you protect the blood clot in your tooth socket after your wisdom teeth removal.

If you have any issues after your wisdom tooth removal, ensure you contact our oral surgery team for assistance.

How long is recovery following wisdom tooth removal?

It takes about 3 – 4 days to recover after wisdom tooth removal. However, recovery in complex cases may be slow and take up to two weeks or more. The recovery period depends on the severity of the impacted wisdom tooth while erupting.

When is wisdom tooth removal necessary?

Some wisdom teeth require observation, but certain cases may need extraction. Removing wisdom teeth may be necessary if the following results from it.

  • Tooth decay
  • Fracture of the tooth
  • Gum disease (periodontal disease)
  • Recurring pain and swelling from partly erupted tooth (pericoronitis)
  • Impaction (no space in the mouth for tooth eruption)

Surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth is an effective solution that prevents other teeth and your oral health from developing different issues.

Cost is a significant factor that affects decision-making for wisdom tooth removal from a skilled oral surgeon or a general dentist. We will, of course, inform you of the costs involved prior to surgery.

Depending on the complexity of the impacted tooth, the severity of the decay or damage and several other factors, you may need an oral surgeon to carry out your wisdom teeth removal.

If you experience severe discomfort or pain from your wisdom teeth or your dentist referred you to an oral surgeon, ensure you schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

5 Star Client ReviewWhen a sudden toothache interrupted my London trip, I had the good fortune to be referred to Dr. Wahab Shakir.
He was exceptionally through, identified the problem(s), and provided me with an action plan (report and x-rays) to convey to my dentist back in the States. He also prescribed the really helpful medication I needed for my flight home.
He truly was a godsend, and I am most grateful!!

5 Star Client ReviewI have been in London for two years and have had to go to the dentist twice for quite important operations (a root canal treatment and an extraction).
The staff of the clinic is kind and efficient, I immediately felt in good hands.
Dr. Fabrizio Castellari is simply one of the best dentists I've ever had: serious empathic and able to work in total absence of pain.
