Wisdom teeth & oral surgery experts in leeds
If your wisdom teeth don’t have enough room to break into your mouth, they can be painful, damage your jaw and other teeth, and leave your gums inflamed. So it’s best to have them dealt with.
Practice principal & Specialist oral surgeon Dr. Abdul Dalghous is regarded as the go-to clinician in Yorkshire (not just Leeds) for wisdom teeth extractions and complex oral surgery.
Why are my wisdom teeth causing me pain?
It could be that your mouth’s too small to make room for the new teeth, or they’re just growing at an angle and pushing up against your other molars. Either way, we’ll remove them easily so the rest of your teeth have room to breathe.
Our oral surgeon Dr. Abdul Dalghous has over 25 years’ experience with complex tooth extractions, dental implants and bone grafting, so you’ll be in good hands. And if you’re nervous, we can sedate you to make the treatment go even easier.

Oral surgery stories
Here are some clients explaining how wisdom teeth removal has left their mouths feeling healthier than ever.
What could leaving my wisdom teeth and just taking pain killers every once in a while cost me?
Just because your wisdom tooth pain comes and go’s it doesn’t mean you can leave them alone.
We see so many clients who do this and in turn cause further damage to the teeth in front and have to have more extensive dental treatment as a result. In other cases it can also lead to more serious dental infections.
If they need to come out it’s best to do so as soon as possible.
Your questions answered
You’ve probably got tonnes of questions. But before you get in touch, we’ve answered the most common ones below.
Wisdom teeth, if not grown properly, can cause further dental problems, including damage to surrounding teeth, inflamed/infected gum tissue, jaw damage (cyst growth), cavities, alignment problems, or sinus issues.
We offer sedation for all dental treatments.
One of the most popular uses of sedation is for wisdom teeth extractions. Before the procedure Dr. Dalghous will carry out a pre-sedation assessment in order to make sure all is ok before having the treatment done under sedation.
The only thing you should feel is a slight scratch as the anesthetic is being administered. Following that you will feel no pain just pressure and slight pushing as Dr. Dalghous takes the wisdom tooth out.
Once the tooth is removed, there is a hole in the bone called a socket. A blood clot forms in that area to protect the bone and nerves underneath.
If that clot becomes dislodged or aggravated, it will cause the bone and nerve to be exposed to air, fluids and food, causing an infection – or a dry socket. You will know you have this as you will feel pain radiating up to the ear as well as a bad taste in your mouth and possibly bad breath.
Don’t worry however, dry socket is quite common following a wisdom tooth extraction so all you need to do is get in touch with us and we will bring you in to put a special medicine in the socket to ease the pain and get rid of the dry socket.
We usually recommend resting the next day following the extraction in case of any swelling or bruising however if you need to go to work then it is fine to do so as long as you take it easy.
