What are the Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

There are many reasons to have a wisdom tooth removed – even if it hasn’t caused you any pain yet. There is a high chance that it will as it grows and your teeth become ever more crowded, while there’s also the chance of wisdom tooth infection.

Leaving a wisdom tooth in place can cause damage to the neighbouring teeth, pain in your jaw and gums, swelling, bad breath, bleeding gums, difficulty and pain when eating and more. By opting for a wisdom tooth extraction at our clinic in Hull, you can wave goodbye to those symptoms and enjoy better dental health.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction FAQs

You’ve probably got tonnes of questions. But before you get in touch, we’ve answered the most common ones.

What problems can arise if I don’t remove my wisdom teeth?

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.

Can I be sedated during my wisdom tooth removal?

We offer sedation for all dental treatments.

One of the most popular uses of sedation is for wisdom teeth extractions. Before the procedure one of our surgeons will carry out a pre-sedation assessment in order to make sure all is ok before having the treatment done under sedation.

Is the treatment going to be painful?

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 one of our surgeons takes the wisdom tooth out.

What are dry sockets and how do I know if I have one?

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.

Can I go to work the next day?

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.

Is wisdom teeth extraction painful?

You shouldn’t experience any pain during the actual extraction as your mouth will be numbed from the anaesthetic we provide. If you start to feel any discomfort, your surgeon will be able to administer more anaesthetic to you.

We realise that dental procedures can be quite stressful for some people, and if you have a fear of going to the dentist, we offer IV sedation. Speak to your dentist about this during your initial consultation.

Can a damaged wisdom tooth impact other teeth?

If left untreated, your wisdom will have a negative effect on your other teeth, particularly your second molars. By pressing up against your other teeth, an infection may develop. Having crowded teeth may cause the enamel to degrade too.

Can there be complications from wisdom teeth removal?

For the most part, having your wisdom teeth taken out is quite straightforward.

There are very occasionally slight complications associated with the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. On rare occasions, a condition known as dry socket can occur.

But don’t worry, you’ll be in the safest of hands. Our surgeons has performed countless extractions over the years, and he knows the back of a mouth as well as most people know the back of their hands.

Does wisdom tooth removal help benefit oral hygiene?

If left in place, your wisdom tooth could cause infections to the neighbouring teeth and gums.

Having your wisdom teeth removed can also stop halitosis, which is caused by trapped bacteria surrounding the infected tooth.
