Wisdom Tooth Removal & Costs

When a wisdom tooth partially erupts, food can get trapped in the gums surrounding it. This can lead to bacteria growth & serious gum infection. Wisdom teeth that are impacted & remain tucked away can lead to problems such as tooth decay, infection, damage of the neighbouring tooth, infections & can in some instances form tumours or cysts.

When Do You Remove a Wisdom Tooth?

At A+ Dentists, we have Dr Edwin Ling who has done a lot of study in the area of oral surgery & wisdom tooth removal. He has both a Medical degree (MBBS) as well as a Dental degree (BDSc)

His special interest is in the area of wisdom tooth removal. Dr Edwin is well liked by his patients. They commend him on his gentle & reassuring manner, always making them feel comfortable & at ease.

For wisdom teeth that are likely to cause problems, we recommend that the ideal time for removing wisdom teeth is between the ages of 17-25 years. People who get their impacted wisdom teeth removed when they are young, in general, have lesser risk of complications and the healing period is much quicker.

We are a well established dental clinic located in Howick in Auckland & are proud to be serving the East Auckland Community – Howick, Cockle Bay, Highland Park, Half Moon Bay, Pakuranga, Botany, Botany Downs, Dannemora right through to Flat Bush, Ormiston, Bucklands Beach as well as the wider Auckland regions.
