Wisdom teeth usually erupt between 16-23 years of age. A common problem that arises with the emergence of wisdom teeth is that there is not enough room for them to fully erupt and they become ‘impacted’.
To avoid associated problems such as infection of neighbouring gum tissue, decay of neighbouring teeth or crowding of front teeth, such wisdom teeth should be removed.
This procedure can be carried out in the dental chair under local anaesthesia. However, for multiple wisdom teeth or difficult cases, a patient may be referred to an oral surgeon for treatment under general anaesthetic in a hospital or a day procedure centre.
