Many people are afraid of wisdom tooth removal as they believe it will be painful, when in actual fact if you under a general anaesthetic, you will be totally unaware of the procedure! If under IV sedation, you will not have any memory of the procedure, and if under local anaesthetic then you are aware, but it will be numb.
Explore our crazy myths about wisdom teeth removal to feel more relaxed during your procedure…
This one is completely false. We do not break anyone’s jaw to access wisdom teeth, even if they are impacted! Some established wisdom teeth in older patients may have to be removed from jaw bone material during the procedure, but the integrity of this bone is left intact.
Incorrect as well! We will never make any incisions outside of the mouth, and our incisions to your gum tissue are minimally invasive to ensure a swift recovery.
False – In fact we only open your mouth to a width of approximately two fingers!
Of course not! We use advanced technology to remove your wisdom teeth, and if a tooth is particularly difficult to extract we will remove it piece by piece.
