Impacted wisdom tooth extraction


Wisdom teeth without enough space to grow in your mouth become impacted, which may cause pain, swelling, infection or gum disease and require surgery, the length and severity of which depends on how deeply impacted the tooth is.

HCA hospitals offers impacted wisdom tooth extraction if a patient has decided to go ahead with surgery. During the procedure, the gum may be cut back slightly and a small amount of bone removed, and the tooth may require cutting into one or more pieces to aid extraction. Dissolvable stitches are used to close the gum.

Removal may take place under local or general anaesthetic, depending on what your surgeon considers to be most appropriate.

When you have impacted wisdom tooth extraction at one of our hospitals:

  • the procedure is normally treated as a day case, but you may have to stay in hospital overnight if you have had a general anaesthetic
  • our surgeons are skilled dental professionals with access to the latest state-of-the-art equipment

You can choose the consultant and hospital most convenient for you by simply entering the treatment into our ‘Consultant finder’.

With us, you can be sure you are getting the best treatment available. When you have any treatment in one of our units or hospitals, you will experience a number of benefits:

  • Access to consultants who are experts in their field, working with the latest treatments and leading technologies in state-of-the-art facilities that smaller private hospitals cannot match.
  • We are London’s leading private hospital group, treating 400,000 patients each year. This volume drives excellence and experience. In the last 10 years we have invested £500 million in the latest technologies, treatments and medication, many of which are not available on the NHS or via smaller private hospitals.
  • You can be confident that we can take care of all your treatment needs. We are the only private hospital group to offer such an extensive range of treatments for patients of all ages.
  • No waiting time. Your care will start as soon as you're ready.
  • Your safety is protected. Some private hospitals don’t have any on-site critical care facilities in the event of an emergency. Our consultants have around-the-clock access to more critical care beds than any other private healthcare group in the UK. If you need urgent care you’ll receive it instantly – it’s very rare for us to transfer patients to another hospital. Our rates of MRSA are nearly five times lower than the national average. And we have zero recorded cases of some other common infections.
