It is like other procedures which are done by our dentists at Daher Dental.

We also offer laughing gas or nitrous oxide, to make you feel happy and relaxed during the dental procedure.
Removal of wisdom teeth
Before the extraction procedure, our dentist discusses the types of anaesthesia which will be given for the particular procedure. As the wisdom teeth are located at the corner of mouth and not fully visible and we refer to them as impacted wisdom teeth. If all wisdom teeth are to be extracted at the same time then the patient will be given general anaesthesia accordingly.
Sedation in dentistry
Dental anxiety is a common reaction when patients show up for any dental procedure particularly wisdom teeth extraction. Sedation plays a very important role in dentistry by relaxing the patient and relieving their pain. Anaesthesia during dental procedures keeps the patient conscious and relaxed.
Most common types of anaesthesia used for wisdom tooth extraction:
- Local anaesthesia
- Conscious sedation by oral medicine
- Nitrous oxide or laughing gas
- Intravenous sedation
- General anaesthesia

Why should you remove your wisdom teeth via extraction and sedation?
Even if you do not have any pain associated with your wisdom teeth and have no complaints, it is still important to check on the wisdom teeth or molars. As we continue to age, we may encounter problems that are associated with our wisdom teeth such as infections or even cysts since the space in our mouths continue to expand however there are molar and wisdom teeth that are in the way.
It is estimated that approximately 90% of wisdom teeth will require removal and extraction. Extractions can be very complicated as you get older and may lead to other complications. As such we recommend that you do not wait until you feel discomfort and remove your molar or wisdom teeth!
If you are worried or anxious we recommend removing your wisdom and molar teeth via sedation such as laughing gas or other methods. Our team are experts at providing quick extractions with very minimal discomfort.
