Having wisdom teeth pain and needing to remove wisdom teeth?

Did you know 90% of wisdom teeth cases can be removed in our dental practice painlessly under local anaesthetic?

The Root Cause

Discomfort usually comes from

  • Gums becoming extremely inflamed due to inability to keep the area clean usually by small food getting trapped under the gums
  • “Impacted: wisdom teeth – usually from not enough room in the jaw to accommodate for the space of the teeth
  • If the area becomes a larger infection this poses a medical danger
  • Rubbing of the teeth against the tongue or the cheek can cause major discomfort as well
