Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are molars located at the farthest end of the dental arch. Usually, they have to be removed:

  • because the structure of the jawbone has too little space to accommodate the wisdom teeth, or
  • they are not aligned properly and thus cannot fit into the tooth arrangement of the mouth.

LOCAL ANASTHETIC: The removal of a wisdom tooth is painless with the use of a local anesthetic. The patient solely hears noises during the treatment and may feel some light pressure.

TWILIGHT SLEEP: For those who are severely afraid of the procedure, we offer twilight sleep, or conscious sedation.

GENERAL ANESTHETIC: For those who prefer not to be conscious at all during the surgery, we offer general anesthesia. An anesthetist and a specialist in anesthesia nursing will make sure you are safe and pain-free during the surgery.

Gentle Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The ideal age to undergo a gentle wisdom tooth removal is about 14-18 years. In some cases, an even earlier removal is necessary due to specific orthodontic circumstances.


The position of the wisdom teeth can be determined by taking an X-ray image. If it is suspected that the root exhibits complex branching or is located close to a nerve, a 3-D image must be made of the jaw. This is, unfortunately, not insured by statutory health insurance. Such precautions are gentle on the nerve structures and minimize the risk of lip numbness due to nerve damage. With the acquisition of a 3-D image, the surgeon is able to precisely plan the operative procedure and the necessary time frame. This ensures an overall lighter treatment.
