  • This animation will show the position of the wisdom teeth

  • and how a wisdom tooth is removed.

  • Click the navigation arrows below the animation screen to play, pause, rewind

  • or fast-forward the animation. This animation contains sound.

  • Here we show the position of the wisdom teeth.

  • Wisdom teeth are located at the back of your mouth

  • and develop after all the other teeth.

  • Wisdom teeth don't usually cause problems.

  • However, if there isn't enough space for them to come through they

  • become impacted.

  • This is when they squeeze against the other teeth,

  • causing pain and swelling.

  • If one or more of your wisdom teeth are causing problems,

  • you may consider having them removed.

  • Here we show what an impacted wisdom tooth looks like.

  • You will usually need to have an X-ray before you have a wisdom tooth removed,

  • so that your dentist can see its position.

  • Here we show a dental X-ray, including the wisdom tooth to be removed.

  • The type of anaesthesia used will depend on the position of your wisdom tooth.

  • If your wisdom tooth is severely impacted,

  • you may be given a general anaesthetic.

  • This means you will be asleep during the operation and feel no pain.

  • You will need to go to hospital to have a general anaesthetic.

  • Alternatively, your dentist may use local anaesthesia.

  • This completely blocks feeling from the wisdom tooth and surrounding area.

  • You will stay awake during the operation.

  • Depending on the position of your wisdom tooth,

  • your dentist may need to make a small cut in the gum over the tooth,

  • and then remove any bone that is covering it.

  • The wisdom tooth is then taken out.

  • Your dentist may need to cut the tooth into pieces, to make it easier

  • to remove.

  • Your dentist will press a gauze pad against the gum after the tooth has been removed.

  • Your dentist may use dissolvable stitches to reduce bleeding.

  • This is the end of the animation.

  • Click on the animation screen to watch it again.
