Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Maintain your beautiful smile with expert dentistry from one of the city’s most respected practitioners. Wisdom teeth are a pain both literally and financially but at White Dental Group, we can efficiently and affordably extract these unwanted molars to help you maintain a healthy smile. As an established Singapore based dentist, we have many years of experience providing our patients with custom dental solutions to suit both their needs and budget.
What are they?
Wisdom teeth are large molars at the back of your mouth that don’t usually erupt until early adulthood (17-25). Thousands of years ago, these teeth were developed by our ancestors to help them break down dense plant matter. However, as our diet has become more refined and our jaws have become smaller, we no longer have any use for these molars and in fact they can cause pain and damage to your teeth.
Why do I need a wisdom tooth extracted?
These extra teeth are unnecessary and can potentially damage your dental health. When wisdom teeth erupt, they can push the other teeth in your mouth out of line and cause an imbalance in your bite. When the teeth become impacted, they are also painful and are known to cause periodontal disease and dental cavities. An impacted tooth pressing against your gums is also incredibly painful and highly distracting.
How will you extract them?
This extraction procedure is safe and efficient. First, the dentist will administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. Next, they will open up the gum and work carefully to extract all of the tooth before stitching or patching up the area to prevent infection. It takes only a few days to recover from this procedure, during which you may experience some minor pain and tenderness.
