The arrival of wisdom teeth often causes issues in an evolving young mouth. Technically, a ‘wisdom tooth’ is the third molar in the dentition, and often becomes impacted because of a lack of space in the dental arch. Gum, bone, another tooth or all three may stop the wisdom tooth from being able to break through or find room.
This lack of space occurs because our jaws have become smaller through evolution and with preventative dentistry, good oral hygiene and diet, teeth are not lost due to decay as frequently as in the past.
The most common reasons for removing wisdom teeth are:
- Gum infection
- Pressure pain
- Orthodontic reasons
- Prosthetic reasons
- Cyst formation
At Bond Street Dental, we would start with a consultation to consider the status and potential impact of looming wisdom teeth, potentially with necessary x-rays.
If the wisdom teeth require surgical removal, our experienced team of dental surgeons will be brought into the discussion.
At Bond Street Dental, you can opt to have your wisdom teeth removed under local anaesthesia or general anaesthetic.
If you’re concerned that you don’t have Hospital Cover on private health insurance, you can relax. We have state-of-the-art surgical theatres and an available anaesthetist right here at Bond Street.

The removal of wisdom teeth cannot be executed in all dental surgeries, because these procedures can be more complicated than first diagnosed. Therefore, dentists must take several x-rays to ensure the procedure can be performed safely in their surgery. Still, even if you need your wisdom teeth removed by an experienced surgeon, you can count on the Bond Street Dental Clinic. The Bond Street Dental Clinic employs several experienced oral surgeons, but also has the modern facilities to cope with more complicated removals. So, if you want to get your diagnosis and treatment in the same location, the Bond Street Dental Clinic could be the dental surgery for you.
In addition to wisdom teeth removals, the Bond Street Dental Clinic can provide patients with other more complex treatments; this includes cosmetic dentistry such as dental implants. While we offer normal dental implants, patients can also count on revolutionary treatments such as the All-On-4 dental implant treatment. This treatment enables patients who are not eligible for normal dental implants due to a lack of jawbone to still get their replacement teeth through dental implants. However, the treatment is not known by everyone, so the Bond Street Dental Clinic provides free information on the subject through the website and through free information evenings, which are organised regularly. For more information about these information evenings, please refer to the dedicated page on the Bond Street Dental Clinic Website.
