Bell Hill Dental

Is wisdom teeth removal considered oral surgery?

At Bell Hill Dental in Dunedin, we offer gentle wisdom tooth removal so our patients can enjoy improved oral health and comfort. Our dental team is highly experienced and skilled in removing wisdom teeth, so you can rest assured knowing you are in capable, safe and caring hands. 

When Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Necessary? 

Not all wisdom teeth require removal, but if they pose a threat to a patient’s oral health and wellness, we can safely remove them. A wisdom tooth removal may be necessary to make space for incoming or existing teeth, repair damage below the gumline (e.g., deep decay, fractures), or remove impacted wisdom teeth that haven’t yet erupted. 

Your Comfort and Safety Are Priority

Wisdom tooth removal is considered oral surgery. However, we approach each patient with specialised care to ensure the best possible outcomes and enhanced patient comfort. Our dentists in Dunedin, Otago are experts in safe, painless and efficient tooth removals, so many patients don’t experience discomfort during the procedure. 

We offer an effective local anesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort during the procedure. However, we can refer patients to a trusted specialist oral surgeon and anesthetist if they require general anesthesia.
