Wisdom Teeth and Dental Extraction



Extraction is the surgery to remove a tooth. This surgery can be performed in-clinic with the use of local anaesthetic, or under general anaesthesia at a hospital.


Wisdom teeth are your third molars and commonly erupt between the ages of 17 – 25 years. Wisdom teeth can be problematic for many people, as the jaw often does not have enough room to allow them to come through the gum sufficiently to be functional, or to be cleaned.

One of the most common complaints with wisdom teeth is frequent gum infections around the wisdom tooth, a condition called “pericoronitis”, which can range from a low-grade discomfort to very severe pain in some cases.
