A Dentist Tells You When Your Wisdom Tooth Should Be Extracted And The Costs Involved

Most of us (adults) have 32 permanent teeth; 16 on both your upper and lower jaw. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, come in at the very back of our mouth, with one at the end of each row of teeth. They usually don’t develop fully until the ages of 18 to 24. 

Unfortunately, more often than not, our jaws don't have enough space for them to erupt properly. Thus, they can often cause dental problems. 

While wisdom teeth removal is one of the more common dental procedure in Singapore, people often wonder if it's necessary to extract them if they aren't causing any pain. 

Dr Samintharaj Kumar, an experienced dentist shared his thoughts with a reader on DxD's Ask A Doctor platform. Here's what he had to say.

Hi Cerise Yes good question. It is quite important to understand why you have such a concern in the first place. If a dentist has recommended this to you, then I would presume a dental xray has been done and there might be a reason as to why he or she has advised removal in the a...

Dear Ashley There are options apart from dental implants: typically a denture or a bridge. These methods of replacing missing teeth are efficient. However a dental implant is typically known as the best alternative to a missing tooth. There are of course medical conditions which ...

Hi Karen There is a wide range of fees for wisdom tooth removal. Here in Singapore the costs can range anywhere from $150 - $2000 from a simple wisdom tooth extraction to a complicated wisdom tooth surgical removal. You may be able to use Medisave towards a partial claim if t...

Hello J I wonder why you think it is safe for you to undertake Myobrace treatment without the professional guidance of a myobrace practitioner. Not all biting problems or crowded teeth are treatable using Myobrace. Yes Myobrace is a known modality but it is not the single so...
