When your wisdom teeth, the last of your adult teeth, begin to grow, they can often run out of room. When this happens the wisdom teeth can bump into other teeth and cause an impaction, or they can grow incorrectly and cause issues with your gums or other teeth. Normally we remove wisdom teeth that show signs of growing incorrectly.
Because the wisdom teeth are below your gums, they need to be removed by surgery. We make incisions in your gums over the wisdom teeth and then remove them through the incision. After the operation we close the incisions with sutures.
You may feel pain and discomfort after your surgery. We’ll provide post-operative care to help you manage discomfort and swelling.
