When do wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but certain issues may make an extraction necessary. This could include:
- Recurring pain and swelling because of a partly showing tooth (Pericoronitis)
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease (Periodontal disease)
- Fracture of the tooth
- Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth root
- Impaction (not enough room in the mouth for the tooth to come through properly)
Having an impacted wisdom tooth removed surgically is an extremely effective solution to these issues, and also means your other teeth and general oral health will not suffer any further because of them.
A large factor that will affect your wisdom tooth extraction cost is whether you choose to go to a general dentist, or to a highly skilled oral surgeon.
Depending on the complexity of the affected tooth’s position, the severity of damage or decay, and a variety of other factors, it is likely that you will be referred to an oral surgeon, such as our Dr. Hannah Flynn, for your wisdom tooth removal.
If you are experiencing severe pain or discomfort from your wisdom teeth, or if you have been referred to see an oral surgeon by your usual dentist, you should make an appointment with us as soon as possible.

What is the recovery process like?
Everyone responds to surgery differently. Some people might experience a bit of discomfort and soreness for the first three days and require painkillers. Some people might even experience slight bruising or swelling on the outside of the face which usually resolves within a week or two.
After these three days, you will begin to feel much better and be able to chew properly again.
Your mouth will start to feel normal again after one week and by that time, you’ll have forgotten all about your wisdom tooth extraction.
