Impacted Wisdom Teeth - Treatments

Most impacted wisdom teeth are best treated by surgical removal. Surgical excision of an impacted wisdom tooth is a minor surgical procedure which can usually be performed under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia.

Your surgeon will advise you on the type of anesthesia most appropriate for your needs. The surgery involves uncovering the tooth by lifting the overlying gums to expose the tooth and bone.

The tooth may need to be sectioned in order to remove it. The gums are then stitched back in place.
