Your dentist will assess your medical history and dental condition. They will take the time to explain the rationale behind recommending a tooth extraction, as well as the benefits of the procedure, before proceeding with the treatment.
Wisdom teeth are located at the back of your mouth and are the last set of adult teeth to develop. Sometimes, due to a shortage of space, they emerge at an incorrect angle or position, or they do not completely erupt.
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause severe pain, and potentially lead to an infection. To address these concerns, your dentist may recommend removal of the wisdom tooth.
Your dentist will carry out the surgery under a local anaesthetic. We also offer sedation therapy to alleviate the anxiety of our more nervous patients.
To schedule a consultation for an extraction, a wisdom tooth removal or other oral surgery, please contact Slade Dental Practice & Implant Centre on 020 8855 2115.
