Is wisdom tooth extraction safe?
Removing wisdom teeth is a common dental procedure. The expert dentists use sterilised dental instruments to prevent bacteria from entering your gums during wisdom tooth removal and other treatments.
Your mouth may feel sore or become swollen for a few days after your treatment. This may be managed with pain relief and anti-inflammatory medication and should subside after a few days.
Pain that lasts longer than a few days may be a sign of a dry socket, which can be a complication of extractions. If you have any unusual symptoms after your wisdom tooth extraction, make an emergency appointment to see our dentists.
All surgical or invasive procedures carry risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
