Do I really need to have my wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24.

Often, their eruption can cause problems such as pain, gum inflammation, damage to nearby teeth, infection and decay.

Extraction is recommended to prevent these problems.

At British Dental Clinic, we understand your concerns about this procedure.

We strive to provide a relaxed and pain-free experience, using advanced anaesthetic techniques and a highly trained team.

In addition, you will have post-operative follow-up care to closely monitor your recovery and ensure that everything goes smoothly.

Types of Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Lanzarote

Each wisdom tooth is unique and its extraction depends on how it erupted.

Some don’t even cause any discomfort when they come out, while others do. So no, not all wisdom tooth extractions involve a lengthy surgical process.

Here are the types of procedures most commonly performed and why:

Simple Extraction

This is performed on visible and accessible wisdom teeth, similar to the extraction of a normal tooth. It is suitable for teeth with cavities or infections.

Semi-surgical extraction

Necessary when the tooth is partially visible and requires a small incision for complete extraction. Ideal for partially impacted teeth that can cause infection.

Surgical extraction

Suitable for teeth that are completely impacted and not visible. This procedure is more complex (but not more painful). It is carried out with care and precision in our clinic.

Post-Judgment Tooth Extraction Recovery

Recovery varies from patient to patient, but is usually completed within a week (or sooner).

There may be some initial swelling and pain, but both are perfectly manageable with medication.

We recommend a soft diet and avoidance of hot foods and smoking for optimal recovery.

In the first 2 days after the extraction, you may experience slight swelling and soreness in the treated area.

This will be controlled with the painkillers we will prescribe after the procedure.

Do you have some swelling in the area around the extraction and do you have some difficulty opening your mouth normally?

This is normal. The discomfort will disappear in a few days.
