Removal of Wisdom Teeth


If you are searching for a top-notch wisdom tooth removal specialist in North Dublin with a remarkable reputation in oral surgery, our state-of-the-art clinic in Bayside Medical Centre can provide you with the quality care you require.





At our clinic, wisdom teeth removal is one of the most frequently performed oral surgery procedures. Wisdom teeth typically emerge in adolescence or early adulthood and grow at the back of the mouth.

However, because they develop late, they may grow into a crowded mouth at awkward angles or fail to fully emerge, which can lead to impacted wisdom teeth that require removal.

If you are experiencing discomfort from your wisdom teeth, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us. Ignoring the need for wisdom tooth extraction can result in dental decay, gum disease, cellulitis, and abscesses, so it is crucial to seek treatment as soon as possible. During your visit, we will conduct x-rays and provide a specialist consultation.




When a wisdom tooth is unable to fully emerge due to the presence of other teeth, it may need to be removed, which involves a surgical procedure performed by our highly skilled consultant oral surgeon. This procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia.

Certain symptoms can indicate the need for impacted wisdom tooth removal, such as swelling around the jaw, bad breath, swollen or bleeding gums, headaches, or jaw aches. However, not all impacted wisdom teeth present symptoms, which is why it is important to schedule regular check-ups and x-rays at our clinic.



During your initial consultation appointment, our highly respected and experienced consultant oral surgeon, will assess the need for wisdom teeth removal.

Some clinics may refer patients requiring wisdom teeth extraction to a hospital for treatment, but at our clinic, our specialists are equipped to handle even impacted wisdom teeth removal.

Wisdom teeth removal procedures can be performed using local anaesthesia, and for those who may be more nervous, your oral surgeon may also offer sedation to aid in relaxation. Each wisdom tooth extraction, including impacted wisdom teeth, is unique and may require different techniques.




Wisdom tooth extraction, including impacted wisdom tooth removal, like any surgical procedure, carries some potential risks such as numbness, jaw stiffness, and pain. After the procedure, it is common to experience some pain, which can usually be managed effectively with over-the-counter pain relievers.

At your preparatory appointment, our team will explain the importance of avoiding mouth rinsing for 12-24 hours and eating softer foods for the first few days following the surgery. The blood clot that forms in the tooth socket after wisdom teeth removal should be maintained for as long as possible.

If you have any concerns about postoperative issues related to your wisdom tooth extraction, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 01 525 3888 or [email protected].

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if my wisdom teeth are sore?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we prioritise the treatment of impacted, infected, decayed and painful wisdom teeth. Please contact us immediately if you have a sore or swollen gum over your wisdom tooth or if your wisdom tooth is decayed, impacted and hurting. Sometimes food can get caught under the flap of gum over your impacted wisdom teeth causing pain. Some people cannot even close their mouth or eat properly when their wisdom tooth is painful. Infected wisdom teeth can cause pain at night with little relief from painkillers necessitating their removal. A dentist in Smile Hub Dental Clinic will prioritise the removal of your wisdom tooth if you’re experiencing a painful, swollen, rotten or infected wisdom tooth. Sometimes there is not enough space for a wisdom tooth to erupt and this can cause decay on the neighbouring tooth or an ulcer in a patient’s cheek due to a lack of space for the wisdom tooth. A dentist in Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Sutton, Dublin 13 will be able to address your wisdom tooth concerns following a dental examination.

I'm really nervous about having my impacted wisdom tooth extracted, what is sedation?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we provide inhalation and intravenous conscious dental sedation for patients who are nervous about having their impacted wisdom teeth removed. Your dentist in Smile Hub Dental Clinic will explain to you what conscious dental sedation involves and which treatment option is most suitable for you. Dental sedation makes your wisdom tooth extraction relaxing and comfortable if you’re a nervous dental patient. You will need a responsible adult to stay with you for 24 hours following dental sedation. Whilst sedated you will be able to talk throughout your treatment but you will be in a relaxed and comfortable state of mind. You must not drive, operate machinery, cook, drink alcohol, make important decisions or mind children for 24 hours as your judgement and memory will be affected by your dental sedation.

How are upper wisdom teeth removed or extracted?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, the extraction or removal of upper wisdom teeth is often similar to other teeth and can be completed within a short appointment.

How are lower wisdom teeth removed?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we educate our patients that many lower wisdom teeth cannot be taken out in a similar way to other teeth. Wisdom teeth can be positioned beneath the gum either partially or completely impacted. This means that the impacted wisdom teeth can be lying at an angle to the neighbouring tooth. This will require a minor oral surgery procedure to have these removed and sutures place. Removal of difficult wisdom teeth can be done under sedation if necessary for nervous patients. We’re the pain-free and stress-free wisdom teeth removal experts!
