The final set of molars that develop in a set of teeth, and while useful, often need to be removed due to common problems that arise with them.
Wisdom teeth extraction is a very common dental procedure across Australia and generally is performed in one of the following ways:
- Performed by a dentist as an out-patient service (this is referred to as “in the chair”) or:
- in a hospital as a surgical procedure usually involving sedation by a general anaesthetic.
