Preparing for wisdom teeth removal

Your dentist or oral surgeon will explain how to prepare for your procedure. For example, if you smoke, you may be asked to stop as smoking increases your risk of getting a wound infection, which can slow your recovery.

The operation is usually done under local anaesthesia. This completely blocks pain from your gums and you will stay awake during the procedure. You may be offered a sedative to help you relax during the operation. If you go to a hospital and your wisdom teeth are particularly challenging to remove, you may be given general anaesthesia. This means you will be asleep during the procedure. Your dentist or oral surgeon will talk with you about which type of anaesthesia is most suitable for you.

Recovering from wisdom teeth removal

Most people don’t experience any problems after having their wisdom teeth removed. However, if you develop any of the following symptoms contact your dentist or your GP immediately:

  • Bleeding that doesn’t stop after applying pressure, or that lasts for more than half an hour
  • Difficulty in breathing or swallowing
  • Severe pain that isn’t helped by painkillers
  • A high temperature
  • Swelling that continues for more than three days after your operation.
