Specialist Oral Surgeries
Wisdom tooth removal can be carried out by a dentist or a specialist surgeon working in a hospital.
If your dentist recommends removing your wisdom teeth, they’ll take an X-ray of your mouth to help them determine who should carry out the procedure.
If the tooth hasn’t come through the gum, a small cut (incision) will be made in the gum to access it. A small piece of the bone covering the tooth may also need to be removed.
The tooth may be cut into smaller parts to make it easier to remove through the opening. There’s less need to make an incision if the tooth has broken through the gum.
You’ll feel some pressure just before the tooth is removed, as your dentist or oral surgeon needs to widen the tooth socket by rocking the tooth back and forth before taking it out.
You shouldn’t feel any pain as your wisdom teeth are removed because the area will be numb. However, if you do feel pain during the procedure, tell your dentist or oral surgeon so they can give you more anaesthetic.
How long it takes to remove the tooth will vary. Simple procedures can take a few minutes, but it can take longer than 20 minutes if it’s more complicated.
Endodontics (Root Canal)
Root canal treatment is part of an area of dentistry known as endodontics, which deals with the nerves of the tooth. The treatment is required when the nerves within a tooth becomes infected or die, often leading to severe pain.
- Additional information
When the pulp, or nerves within the tooth, becomes inflamed it must be removed and replaced with root filling material to prevent infection spreading or entering through the tooth. This also prevents an abscess from forming around the root of the tooth, which can lead to infection and possible tooth extraction as a means of treatment.
Although safe, the procedure can lead to a weakening of the tooth’s structure and leave it fragile. As such, your dentist may suggest you have a crown fitted onto the tooth in order to prevent damage and protect the tooth from further infection. This can be done as part of the process.
