Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth extraction is a common dental procedure. After careful assessment with an x-ray, our dentists at Lakeside Dental Studio will guide you through the right decision in managing your wisdom teeth. If the extraction appears to be straightforward, you may elect to have the wisdom tooth removed under local anaesthetic in the dental chair. If your wisdom tooth removal is likely to be complex (surgical removal) or if you need multiple teeth removed, you may choose to have this done at the clinic under Intravenous Sedation (sleep dentistry), or in hospital under GA (General Aneathesia). You may also be referred to a specialist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for this procedure.
