Wisdom Tooth Removal - A Complete Guide

Humans develop a total of 32 adult teeth. twenty eight of them erupt by around the age of 13. The last 4, however, do not come in until your late teens to early 20s. These are your third molars, often called the wisdom teeth. They are the most likely to become impacted.  This means that the teeth cannot properly erupt through the gums. Sometimes they partially erupt, or they may not erupt at all. They can cause a significant amount of pain and difficulty in performing daily activities.

 The idea of wisdom teeth removal may sound to be painful and tedious. After undergoing the agonising pain caused by the tooth itself, due to various reasons of misalignment, or overcrowding of teeth that push the wisdom teeth on the farthest corner of your jaw, it is obvious for any person to experience the fear of wisdom tooth removal procedure. However, there is no need to stress and fear. 

If you notice inflammation and tenderness on your gums in that area and see the wisdom tooth protruding out and trapping food particles in between the tooth and gums, your dentist may suggest a wisdom tooth removal procedure at the earliest. If your wisdom teeth have become impacted, Maxcare Dental can help with wisdom teeth removal.

Why do you need wisdom teeth extraction?

  • For many of us, the jaw area may not be sufficient for all the teeth to fit in their places, resulting in overcrowding. This leads to impacted wisdom teeth that breakthrough your gums behind the molars.
  • Your wisdom tooth might have developed some infection due to the presence of bacteria leading to tooth decay. Often, if ignored, this may further lead to the formation of cysts and tumors.
  • The problem disturbs the alignment of other teeth, making it look clumsy on the inside of your mouth.

How is the Wisdom Tooth Removal procedure performed?

​The procedure is handled by one of Maxcare Dental’s experienced dentist. Local anaesthesia is given before the surgery so that you don’t have any wisdom teeth removal pain. If you are going to get all of your wisdom teeth extracted, your dentist may give you intravenous sedation. After this, your doctor removes any gum tissue that surrounds the wisdom tooth and then extracts it. To make the wisdom tooth removal easier, the dentist breaks the tooth into smaller chunks. After the extraction, your doctor secures the surrounding area with sutures. These may be removed a few days post-surgery.

Wisdom Tooth Removal Cost

Your dentist will give you a total cost estimate after thoroughly examining your wisdom tooth. This assessment takes into account your oral health, level of tooth decay or infection, and other problems that you are facing because of your wisdom teeth.

At Maxcare Dental we provide treatments at an affordable cost without compromising on the quality of the treatment. To give you an indicative cost for wisdom tooth removal, it will be $180-$480 for one wisdom tooth (depending on complexity), for two wisdom teeth it would be between $400-$950. Book Online – when booking select Tooth Ache / Extraction.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Recovery - Post-surgical Care

The secret to a healthy mouth is practicing good oral hygiene. After undergoing the procedure, you should follow certain precautionary measures to negate future problems.

  1. Take ample rest immediately post-operation.
  2. Do not rinse or gargle for at least 12 hours after the wisdom teeth removal procedure.
  3. Say ‘No’ to alcohol, hot beverages, and hard substances for a few days.
  4. If you notice excessive bleeding in the operated area, contact your dentist right away.
  5. Follow your doctor’s instructions properly and take prescribed medicines on time.

Choose from the best dentists in Auckland, who have ample experience in wisdom tooth removal procedure, to get the best results and fast recovery.

Had the horrifying experience of my front tooth just breaking completely off, I went to another dentist who quoted me $6000 for an implant..but he couldn't offer me any temporary replacement... there's no way I was walking around with no tooth for a week, googled implants and maxcare popped up with a deal of $3995. I called them they saw me straight away, I was given options but all came with the promise they could fix a temporary tooth.. they were friendly and really seemed to care..I walked out with my smile and dignity intact and will be back soon to get the implant.. couldn't recommend them more highly..great service.. amazing price

I only went to Maxcare Dental because I had a Grab One deal and it was across the road from my workplace. Normally I’ll never go into an establishment for Health Care unless it has been recommended to me AND I would never go into a Health Care establishment in Otahuhu either (personal choice).When I walked in, I was real surprised:1. It was clean and tidy (tick)2. Friendly staff (tick tick)3. Staff were professional, qualified and they knew what they were talking about and had been trained at a high level (tick tick tick)It ticked all the boxes for me. I have recommended Maxcare Dental to all my friends and colleagues (to their surprise lol). My wife has booked in to see Maxcare Dental and it’s now become my preferred choice when it comes to dental work!

The dental Clínic is outstanding with also excellent professional staff. I have been attended in 4 different Clinics before coming to this one and for sure this is the best. For those who fear going to the dentists my last 2 fillings I had here I suggested not to use anesthesia and I didn't feel any pain at all. They are really careful and have wonderful hands. Easy parking and online bookings.

I am a new patient and I thoroughly enjoy the friendly, welcoming service and affordable prices at Max care. I had several proceedures done to my teeth for tha past month and today I was very impressed and grateful that Dr Khan came in on her day off to accommodate me (shift worker)she has an extremely busy schedule but that blew me away!! I offered to pay extra but she said it was fine. I am recommending her to everyone I know she and her lovely staff pull out the red carpet treatment and make the whole experience all about you THANK YOU SO MUCH DR KHAN + MAXCARE

I went to the max care all frightened but was assured it will be painless. When I went there I was blown away by the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff . I have changed my dentist to max care because they treated me so well and informed the procedure every step of the way. She was young beautiful and yet so knowledgeable . I completely trust her. The receptionist and the assistant nurse too were so Curtiss and friendly . They really know their stuff and work as a team . The place is clean, location is easy accessible and open 7 days . It’s great for working people , can visit in the weekends and there is plenty of parking . I have been to many dentists previously , but I really recommend Maxcare Dental. I give them 10/10 . They reminded me of my appointments . Max are provided me the service beyond my expectation. And I THANK YOU😃😃😃😃😃

Dr Tazeen is that rare kind of person that exudes professionalism but also is genuinely caring, and goes out of her way to advise you on what is best for your own personal dental health. In a situation where most of us are nervous and (with suction, etc in our mouths) unable to speak!) Dr Tazeen intuitively knows when to check in on you, and adjust any procedure to make you instantly more comfortable. The practice, in general, offers top quality work without the 'posh people' prices, and they stay away from sales pitches and hard-sells, while offering clear information and solid support. Highly recommended.

Dr Tazeen Khan, was very professional and so kind and thoughtful right from the start, I was super nervous in seeing a Dentist. I wanted to see a female Dentist, she put my worries at ease, cared about my feelings, she worked without any breaks and always che led to see how I was feeling. Dr Khan worked so fast and had everything done in the same day, she did moulds done all in one day and her assistant was very professional as well. I've never felt so cared for in such a kind and caring way. I would recommend her to everyone.

My wife and I both had work done at Maxcare Dental in Otahuhu and we were very pleased with the whole experience. The clinic looked very modern and clean. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. The dentist was very professional and gave us great advise concerning care needed and after care. The cost was competive and reasonable but still a lot for a low income family. We did receive a slight discount which means alot as every cent counts. Overall, we are very satisfied with our experience, this is why we are back a second time. We'll done Maxcare Otahuhu.
