Wisdom Teeth Removal & Extraction Auckland

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the back-most teeth in the mouth. They’re the last to grow in, usually coming through in your teenage years, but sometimes later in life.

There are two of them in both the top and bottom rows of teeth.

An impacted wisdom tooth, its position is mesioangular and in contact with the adjacent tooth's root.

Reasons For Wisdom Teeth Removal


One of the most common reasons for wisdom teeth removal is impaction. When there isn't enough space in the jaw for these molars to grow properly, they can become impacted, causing pain and discomfort.


Wisdom teeth can lead to overcrowding, shifting the alignment of existing teeth. This can affect your bite and may necessitate removal.


Impacted wisdom teeth can create pockets where bacteria can thrive, leading to infections and inflammation.

An impacted wisdom tooth which causes pressure on the adjacent tooth that may lead to pain.

How Do You Extract Wisdom Teeth?

The wisdom teeth removal procedure can vary based on the complexity of the case. Here's a general overview:


Your dentist or oral surgeon will assess your situation through X-rays and a physical examination.


Local or general anesthesia is administered to ensure a painless procedure. Our clinic offers dental sedation for those who are anxious about getting surgery.


The tooth is carefully extracted, with the surgeon making an incision if necessary.


Sutures are used to close the incisions, aiding the healing process.


You will be provided with post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. This typically includes pain management, diet guidelines, and oral hygiene practices.

Modern Painless Techniques

With the advances in technology and health, we’re able to provide you with a relatively pain-free experience.
The numbing gel helps make things pain-free. Applied around the needed area and left for a few minutes to work its magic, it makes the injection feel like nothing.

You also have an option to complete the extraction under sedation - we have a medically trained doctor that provides sedation treatment.

Recovery Process

After the procedure you’ll experience some swelling, the amount depending on the number of extractions you had and how difficult they were.

The swelling usually peaks after 48 hours and can take up to a week to fully subside. To help ease the swelling and pain, we recommend using ice packs.

Here are some general tips for a smoother recovery:

Pain Management

Over-the-counter or prescribed pain medication can help manage discomfort.


Stick to soft foods and liquids for the first few days to avoid irritating the surgical site.

Oral Hygiene

Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water to keep the area clean. Avoid vigorous brushing near the extraction site.


Applying a cold compress to the outside of your cheek can help reduce swelling.

Follow-up Appointments

Attend follow-up appointments to ensure your healing is progressing as expected.

We can give a more specific timeline at your consultation and you’ll be given recovery information to take home post-extraction.

... I had three wisdom teeth extracted at clinic last Friday, it was not that scary at all.

The team made sure that I am aware of all the procedures, they also called the next day to make sure that I was fine and offer to get in touch anytime if I had a problem...

I have always had great experience with everyone at the clinic, would highly recommend the team to everyone.

A 5-star rating.

I had 4 wisdom teeth extracted... the team made me feel so comfortable.

I was extremely nervous for this procedure, as my teeth were impacted. I had no pain after the extraction and 3 follow up calls from the team, who made me feel at ease post procedure. I could not recommend this clinic more highly.

A 5-star rating.

I had one of my wisdom tooth taken out this afternoon, and they must have noticed a few are missing as well.

Was very lucky to get a space after just enquiring this morning.

Anyway, this is the best extraction that I ever had. They were very friendly, helpful and by far the most painless I've ever had. Thank you so much guys, you are awesome and will recommend 110%....
