The friendly wisdom teeth removal dentist at Complete Orthodontics & Dental Care is available to examine your teeth and determine if wisdom teeth removal is necessary. We can also perform emergency wisdom tooth extraction outside of our usual business hours for patients requiring urgent care.
A dentist might recommend wisdom teeth removal if there is not enough room in the patient’s mouth for the tooth/teeth to erupt, if they require orthodontic treatment, or if they’re experiencing symptoms related to their wisdom teeth erupting.
Our wisdom teeth removal dentist will prescribe pain medication for the patient to take after the procedure.
It can take a few days to heal from the procedure. Patients should rest at home during this time and not go to school or work.
This will depend on your situation. With straightforward cases, our wisdom teeth removal dentist will use local anaesthesia or sleep dentistry for wisdom teeth removal treatment in the dentist’s chair, which is non-surgical.

The price will depend on a range of factors, including how many teeth need extracting and whether extraction is performed at our clinic or in a hospital. Our dentist can inform you how much your wisdom teeth removal treatment will cost after examining your teeth.
Your dentist will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, but some general tips to follow include:
