Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Your Path to Oral Comfort and Health
At Top Class Dental, we understand that wisdom teeth can sometimes bring not wisdom, but discomfort and oral health concerns. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood and can lead to various issues, including pain, infection, and misalignment. Our Wisdom Teeth Extraction service is dedicated to providing you with a safe and comfortable experience, alleviating any problems associated with these late-blooming teeth.

The Wisdom Teeth Dilemma
Wisdom teeth, the final set of molars located at the back of your mouth, may not have enough space to erupt properly. This can result in a range of dental problems, such as:
Wisdom teeth may become trapped beneath the gumline, causing pain and potential infection.
The emergence of wisdom teeth can lead to overcrowding, shifting your existing teeth out of alignment.
Partially erupted wisdom teeth can create pockets where bacteria can thrive, leading to gum infection and discomfort.
Cysts or Tumours
In rare cases, cysts or tumours can form around impacted wisdom teeth, necessitating removal.
The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Process
We create a personalised treatment plan, considering the complexity of the extraction, your comfort, and any necessary anaesthesia or sedation options.
Conditions such as Dentinogenesis Imperfecta can cause gray-purple discoloration.
The actual extraction procedure is performed by our skilled dental team. Depending on your case, we may perform a simple extraction or a surgical extraction for impacted or complex wisdom teeth.
After the extraction, you’ll receive post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. You may experience some swelling and discomfort, which can usually be managed with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers.
The Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Relief from Discomfort
Wisdom teeth extraction eliminates pain and discomfort associated with impacted or misaligned teeth.
Removal of problematic wisdom teeth prevents potential future issues, such as infection or misalignment.
Preservation of Oral Health
Extraction contributes to the overall health and stability of your smile by preventing crowding or damage to nearby teeth.

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of molars that typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. They often require removal because they can become impacted (trapped beneath the gumline), causing pain, infection, or damaging nearby teeth.
Common signs that may indicate the need for wisdom teeth extraction include pain or discomfort at the back of the mouth, difficulty opening your mouth fully, swollen gums, and recurrent infections. However, a dental evaluation and X-rays are necessary for a definitive diagnosis.
Wisdom teeth extraction is typically performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring that you don't feel pain during the procedure. After the extraction, some post-operative discomfort is common, but it can be managed with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers.
The duration of recovery varies from person to person but generally lasts about one to two weeks. You may experience swelling, discomfort, and some dietary restrictions during this time. Following post-operative care instructions is crucial for a smoother recovery.
While wisdom teeth extraction is a common and safe procedure, there are minimal risks associated with any surgical intervention. These may include infection, bleeding, or temporary numbness. Our dental team takes every precaution to minimise these risks and ensure your safety during the procedure.
