Extracting Wisdom Teeth

Extracting Wisdom TeethFor a few people, their wisdom teeth do not cause any issues, however, for the majority they can cause pain, infection, and overcrowding. Problems with wisdom teeth are one of the most common dental complaints. Extracting wisdom teeth can be a simple or complex procedure depending on the extent of the issues it is causing. It is important that a highly trained dental professional examines the area to decide on the best course of action. A wisdom tooth can be either impacted or infected.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

An impacted wisdom tooth is where the additional pearly white erupts at an unnatural angle. This could be horizontal, diagonally, sideways, or backward. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause pain, infection, and dental hygiene problems.

Infected Wisdom Teeth

Due to the location of the wisdom teeth, it is often very difficult to clean this area effectively. Because of this, an infected wisdom tooth can develop. Debris can become trapped, or a pocket of gum tissue can form which can harbour germs and food particles. This could inevitably have a knock-on effect on the rest of your teeth.

Extracting Wisdom Teeth

The type of wisdom tooth extraction needed will depend entirely on individual circumstances, such as the angle of the tooth, whether an infection is present, how the tooth is placed among the rest of the teeth, etc.

Sometimes, the wisdom tooth may not need any treatment at all. Alternatively, it may require procedures such as cutting back the gum tissue, removing the crown of the tooth while leaving the roots in place (coronectomy), or surgical removal. Here at Pearl Dental Clinic, we will perform a thorough examination to ensure that you receive the correct treatment for your situation. Our staff will also talk you through the whole procedure and answer any questions you may have. Furthermore, IV sedation is available for anxious patients, or for anyone wishing to feel more comfortable throughout the treatment.


If you have concerns about a wisdom tooth or would simply like it checked over by a dental professional then please contact the clinic on 0208 547 9997. General dental treatments are available as well as emergency dentistry appointments. In addition to this, we offer cosmetic dentistry to enhance and rejuvenate a tired or damaged smile. We look forward to assisting you very soon.
