Wisdom Teeth Surgery

TMJ and Oro-Facial Pain Management

The wisdom teeth (or third molars) are ussually the last teeth to erupt into the mouth in the late teens and early twenties. When there is not enough room to accomodate these teeth then they can become impacted
An impacted tooth can cause a number of problems for example:
  • Repeated attacks of infection in the surrounding gums
  • Food impaction causing decay
  • Cyst in the jaws around the unerupted and impacted wisdom tooth
Treatment in the presence of the above problems often require surgery.
We have extensive experience and expertise carrying out the surgery, there are various options and our caring team can discuss your particular needs during a consultation appointment.
The surgery can be carried out under local anaesthetics alone or with sedation and in some patients a general anaesthetics is necessary.
We are a professional, caring and friendly team and will use the technique suited for each individual patient.
The Jaw Joint (TMJ) is a complex joint made up of two bones separated by a disc of cartilage and surrounded by ligaments and four chewing muscles.
Jaw joint problems are very common affecting reported 25 to 40% of the population at some stage in their lives. In some instances only the muscles (myogenic) are affected whereas in ohers the cartilage, ligament or bones may be at fault.

  • Pain

After careful evaluation we offer the full range of modern treatment modality for the condition from conservative management to surgery when indicated.
