Is wisdom tooth removal always necessary?

Not necessarily. If there is sufficient space for the tooth, they will usually come through without causing any problems. 

There may be some slight discomfort as they come through, however this is temporary and will disappear once the tooth is fully in position.

As long as the wisdom teeth are healthy, fully in position and easy to keep clean, they do not need to be removed.

What are the main reasons for wisdom tooth extraction in Dubai?

  • Insufficient space for the wisdom tooth to come through, thereby causing pain and discomfort

  • Extensive tooth decay

  • Repeated infection of soft tissue behind the tooth

  • Damage to nearby teeth due to improper tooth alignment

What are the signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth?

The warning signs of impacted wisdom teeth are:

  • Pain and tenderness close to the gums in the back of your mouth

  • Swelling around the jaw

  • Swollen, tender, red or bleeding gums

  • Headaches

There are varying degrees of impacted wisdom teeth: some are partially impacted with just the crown showing, while others never break through the gums and become fully impacted. In some cases impacted wisdom teeth may not manifest any symptoms.

If you start to experience pain or any of the above symptoms, do visit a dentist experienced in wisdom teeth removal and have it checked out immediately.

I had Dr. Roy take out my infected last molar. I was a bit nervous initially but the procedure was quick and nice. And it helps when the doctor is easy to get along with and explains what is going on. I also want to mention that the support staff at NOA Dental Clinic were exceptional.

Imagine being told that you need to have the wisdom teeth removed?? ! I found Dr. Roy Thomas online. I went in to have two wisdom teeth removed, and was told that only one truly needed to be pulled. Dr. Roy left me feeling confident that the tooth could be removed without any serious risks. The whole experience was great. I never hope to need an oral surgeon again, but I would definitely go back to him.

Sunil Bhatia

I was referred to Dr. Roy for my wisdom tooth removal. He walked me through the whole process and informed it might take up to 30 minutes. The removal took no more than 10 minutes after I was numb. I could’nt have asked for a better experience, highly recommend him.

Sherin John

I have been visiting NOA clinic from last one year. Got my wisdom tooth extraction and fillings done at the clinic and trust me it was best experience ever. Both Dr. Roy and Dr. Mona are really amazing and I would like to thank them for serving patients during these tough times.

FAQs for wisdom teeth removal in Dubai

Yes, you do not need to have your wisdom tooth removed if you do not have any pain or infection. Wisdom teeth removal are only indicated in cases where there is infection, crowding or impacted teeth.

For the first 24 to 48 hours, it is recommended to avoid solid foods and instead have semi-liquid and soft foods like yogurt, soups, avocado, scrambled eggs, oatmeal etc. Other options for comfort and nutrition include broth, vegetable juice and pureed fruits. Consuming cold things will also help soothe the pain, especially on the first day of the surgery. 

For the first 2 days following your wisdom tooth removal, it is recommended to apply ice packs against the outer cheek of your extraction area. Keep the ice pack on hold for 15 minutes at a time throughout the day. The cold compress will reduce the swelling by decreasing circulation. By the third day, it is better to switch to a warm compress to increase blood circulation. Also, keep the head elevated when lying down or before you go to sleep.

Following your wisdom tooth surgery, your body will naturally develop a blood clot over the extraction site to promote healing. However, drinking through a straw on the day of the procedure creates a lot of negative pressure in the mouth which can loosen the blood clot and dislodge it. The absence of the clot exposes the bone at the extraction site to bacterial contamination from food, and can lead to severe pain and infection. 

A simple extraction involving a fully erupted wisdom tooth can have a recovery time of 3 to 4 days. However, if your teeth were impacted, it could take about a week to 10 days to heal.

The cost will depend on the position of the wisdom teeth and their proximity to nerves and sinuses. We welcome you to contact us on 04 3987075 to discuss treatment costs.

It’s advised to reach out to your insurance provider and confirm whether the suggested procedure falls under your dental coverage.

After wisdom teeth removal, avoid strenuous workouts for 48 hours due to potential bleeding and pressure on surgical sites. Non-essential travel in immediate days isn’t advised. Consult your oral surgeon for personalized guidance on when to resume activities based on your recovery progress.

Sutures (stitches) are often used after wisdom teeth removal to aid healing. Your dentist or oral surgeon will determine if sutures are needed based on the complexity of the procedure and will provide instructions for their care and removal if necessary.

After your tooth extraction, try to maintain the gauze over the extraction site for at least 30 to 45 minutes. Gently bite down on the gauze to apply pressure and aid in clot formation. Should bleeding persist, switch out the gauze for a fresh piece and continue this practice for an additional 60 minutes. If bleeding persists beyond these attempts, consider using a dampened tea bag instead of gauze. The tannic acid present in tea can assist in clot formation and arrest the bleeding process.

Yes, you can brush your teeth after getting your wisdom teeth removed, but it’s important to follow your dentist or oral surgeon’s instructions for post-operative care. Here’s some guidance on when and how to brush your teeth after wisdom teeth removal:

  • You may be advised to wait at least 24 hours after the surgery before resuming brushing.
  • When you’re ready to brush, use a soft-bristle toothbrush and be very gentle around the surgical sites. Avoid vigorous brushing that could potentially disrupt the healing process.
  • Avoid brushing directly over the surgical areas where the wisdom teeth were removed. Instead, brush the other teeth carefully and gently.
  • After brushing, you can rinse your mouth with warm salt water or an antimicrobial mouthwash as recommended by your dentist. This can help keep the area clean and promote healing.
  • Drinking water is important for staying hydrated and keeping your mouth clean, but avoid using a straw in the first few days after surgery, as the suction can disrupt healing.

To ease post-extraction pain, follow your dentist’s guidance. Use prescribed pain medications, apply ice packs intermittently, and maintain proper oral hygiene. Stick to soft foods, avoid straws, and rest. Do reach out to your dentist or oral surgeon if discomfort persists.
