We use CustomerSure to check that our customers are happy - every time.Wisdom teeth are the last to appear, at the back of the mouth, from your late teens onwards. Most people have four but it is not unusual to have fewer, or even none. As they are the last teeth to form, sometimes when they come through there isn’t room for them, so they might emerge at an angle, pressing against the teeth in front or the bone behind.

Watching how your teeth and jaws grow is part of your regular dental care, which is why we aim to build a relationship with you over time. In your dental examination, we will take x-rays to see where your wisdom teeth are in your jaw and how much room there is for them to come through, and check whether they are causing any damage to the teeth in front of them. The x-rays will also show how viable it may be to take a wisdom tooth out.

As your wisdom teeth are coming through, the surrounding gum can become inflamed and sore. This is called pericoronitis, and it may settle down or come and go over a period. It is usually better to remove a wisdom tooth after the first instance of pericoronitis because it will often continue to cause you trouble.

We provide local anaesthetic, and you should be able to fit the procedure in with work or other commitments. If your wisdom teeth are particularly deep and difficult to access, however, lengthier oral surgery may be required.
