Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth can be annoying, uncomfortable and down right painful! They can also cause over crowding in your mouth, which his can lead to a crooked smile.
While a wisdom tooth extraction is a standard procedure, it is important to get the right information on the best treatment for you. That is why we recommend a free consultation with one of our wisdom teeth specialists.

How much does wisdom tooth removal cost?
A single wisdom tooth extraction can cost between $200-$600 depending on complexity.
How much time off work do I need?
You can expect to experience soreness for about 1 week after the procedure but could potentially be back at work in as little as few days after the surgery.
Do I need local or general anaesthetic?
We provide oral and gas sedation for wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral sedation involves taking a sedative pill that provides strong anaesthesia while you stay awake. Nonetheless, it is likely you will feel drowsy and not remember much of the procedure.
Gas sedation (happy gas) helps to reduce anxiety during the procedure.
Although you will recover quickly from the sedation, you cannot drive home and so you will need an alternative method of returning home.
Do I need to get my wisdom tooth removed?
Some people put up with the discomfort of painful wisdom teeth for many years before seeking an extraction. The pain can be managed with over the counter pain killers like paracetamol.
However, not removing wisdom teeth can have long term implications. Recurring infections can lead to sore jaws, migraine and even gut problems.
Over crowding of the back wisdom teeth can also cause the front teeth to become crooked. This could require expensive straightening treatments to correct in the future.
Rather than wait, we invite you to come for a free consultation to determine what option is right for you.
