At Doucas Dental, our principal dental surgeon Dr Gregory Doucas has been removing wisdom teeth in hospital since 1976. We also offer in-chair wisdom teeth removal at our Midland dental clinic; however, each case is different, and we require patients to see one of our friendly dentists for a consultation appointment to assess their wisdom teeth prior to making any decisions. In some cases, the dentist might have to refer you to our preferred oral surgeon specialists. While your wisdom teeth may not be currently causing you any pain or issues, they can potentially cause cysts to form in the jaw and decay on the teeth in front in the long term, so it is best to be proactive and get them looked at prior to them becoming an issue.
During Your Consultation Appointment
At your consultation appointment, the dentist will require a full mouth OPG x-ray in order to assess your wisdom teeth. We take this OPG x-ray at our dental practice located in Midland, or if you have had one of these x-rays taken previously at another dental practice within the year you can bring this to your appointment or we can request this from your previous dental practice for you.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Under General Anaesthetic
Dr Gregory Doucas performs wisdom teeth removal under general anaesthesia at a private hospital only. We have monthly patient lists at a private day surgery hospital, and we use our preferred anaesthetist for all procedures. The anaesthetist fees and private hospital fees are separate and additional to our fee. We will provide you with more information regarding the hospital and the anaesthetist at your consultation appointment. Please note we are unable to offer treatment under general anaesthesia at our chosen private hospital due to the current COVD-19 restrictions.
