Wisdom teeth typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 25.
Some people have wisdom teeth emerging with no problem, but others may not be so lucky. One or more of your wisdom teeth may be prevented from erupting fully in your mouth due to blockage from surrounding molars, jaw bone and/or gums. This leads to impacted teeth which may partially emerge or never break through the gums.
While many individuals accommodate these teeth with no discomfort or issues, others experience complications that intensify with age. Without extraction, you may experience recurrent infections and pain that require extensive treatment, medications and more.

Your Wisdom Teeth Are Causing Pain
You Can't Maintain Proper Oral Hygiene Around Your Wisdom Teeth (Food Gets Stuck etc)
Neighbouring Teeth Are Decaying
Gum Inflammation Around Your Wisdom Teeth
Dentists recommend removal of wisdom teeth during your late teens or early twenties because the removal is more straightforward and the recovery time is shorter for younger people
You will be given local anaesthesia to numb the surrounding area.
During the procedure, it is normal to feel some pressure and minor discomfort.
After the procedure, your dentist will provide gauze for you to bite down on to aid in healing
Wisdom tooth extraction should not be painful because the area will be numb. However, if you feel some pain during the procedure, inform your dentist or oral surgeon to receive more anaesthetic
For 24 hours after the removal of wisdom teeth, you should avoid:
- Spitting or rinsing your mouth out with liquid
- Drinking alcohol and smoking
- Strenuous physical activities
After 24 Hours:
- Rinse your mouth with salt water to assist in healing and keeping the area clean
As Kong Dental is a Medisave Accredited clinic, you will be able to claim up to $1250 for Wisdom Tooth Extractions. In most cases, the patients do not pay out of pocket for their Wisdom Tooth Extractions.
This depends on a few factors, such as how it is growing, or if it's affecting your other teeth. It's best to consult your dentist, who will be able to assess the overall situation.
Do not brush your teeth for at least 24 hours after the extraction procedure. After that, you may brush your teeth gently, and carefully around the extraction area.
For the first 24 hours after surgery, we recommend starting off with liquids, such as fruit juices and water. You can also eat ice cream, yoghurt, and gelato. From the next day onwards, you can try eating soft foods such as porridge, steamed vegetables, soups, steamed fish, beans, and even eggs. Avoid eating spicy foods, anything hard or chewy, and also acidic foods and drinks (like lemon juice and alcohol)
