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.

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.
