  Surgical procedures for wisdom teeth

We offer a wide selection of surgical procedures such as removal of impacted wisdom teeth, apicectomies, crown lengthening, frenectomies, soft tissue grafts, osseous surgery and gingivectomy.

Wisdom teeth commonly cause problems during late teens and early twenties. If the space is limited at the back of the mouth, the wisdom tooth may become jammed between the second molar and the bone at the back of the jaw. A gum flap extends over the crown of the tooth. Bacteria and food get stuck underneath this flap. This causes inflammation and swelling. If the patient can manage to clean under the flap, it may be possible to avoid further problems. If all else fails it is advisable to remove the offending tooth.

Surgical procedures are available for the prevention of recession if the problem is picked up at an early stage.
