Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are molars which are the last adult teeth to develop in the mouth. Most people have four wisdom teeth at the back of the mouth — 1 in each corner.

They usually start to appear in gums in late teens, early twenties, but it can also be quite common to appear later. By this time, there are already 28 adult teeth in the mouth and so the development of wisdom teeth can often be impacted by restricted space, causing problems as they grow. Wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only partially emerge. Teeth that grow through like this are known as impacted.

When to see a Kingsclere Dental Practice dentist

Impacted wisdom teeth don't always cause symptoms. However, when an impacted wisdom tooth becomes infected, damages other teeth or causes other dental problems, you may experience some of these signs or symptoms:

Red or swollen gums
Tender or bleeding gums
Jaw pain
Swelling around the jaw
Bad breath
An unpleasant taste in your mouth
Difficulty opening your mouth

As with any teeth problems, if you are experiencing any of these symptoms it's important to book an appointment at Kingsclere Dental Practice to see a dentist as soon as possible, rather than waiting for routine dental health review.

What can I do to help relieve the discomfort of wisdom teeth?

A mouthwash of medium-hot water with a teaspoonful of salt will help to reduce gum soreness and inflammation. Swish the salt water around the tooth, trying to get into the areas your toothbrush cannot reach. Do this several times a day.

An antibacterial mouthwash containing chlorhexidine can also reduce the inflammation. Pain-relieving tablets such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can also be useful in the short term, but talk to us at Kingsclere Dental Practice if the pain continues.

Why are wisdom teeth removed?

If your wisdom teeth are impacted but not causing any problems, you don't usually need to be remove them. This is because there's no proven benefit of doing this and it carries the risk of complications.

Sometimes, wisdom teeth that have become impacted or haven't fully broken through the surface of the gum can cause dental problems. Food and bacteria can get trapped around the edge of the wisdom teeth, causing a build-up of plaque, which can lead to several problems in the mouth:

  • Damage to other teeth. If the wisdom tooth pushes against the second molar, it may damage the second molar or increase the risk of infection in that area. This pressure can also cause problems with crowding of the other teeth or require orthodontic treatment to straighten other teeth.
  • Cysts. The wisdom tooth develops in a sac within the jawbone. The sac can fill with fluid, forming a cyst that can damage the jawbone, teeth and nerves.
  • Decay. Partially impacted wisdom teeth appear to be at higher risk of tooth decay than other teeth. This probably occurs because wisdom teeth are harder to clean and because food and bacteria get easily trapped between the gum and a partially erupted tooth.
  • Gum disease. The difficulty cleaning impacted, partially erupted wisdom teeth increases the risk of developing a painful, inflammatory gum disease in that area.

Many of these problems can be treated with antibiotics, antiseptic mouthwash and a good oral hygiene regime.

Wisdom teeth removal is very common, but usually only recommended when other treatments haven't worked.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

If your Kingsclere Dental Practice dentist recommends removing your wisdom teeth, they'll take an X-ray of your mouth to help them determine who should carry out the procedure. Your dentist may remove your wisdom teeth, or they may refer you to a specialist surgeon for hospital treatment.

Before the operation, we’ll fully explain the procedure to you.

A local anaesthetic injection is usually given to numb the area around the tooth. You'll feel some pressure just before the tooth is removed, as your dentist or oral surgeon needs to widen the tooth socket by rocking the tooth back and forth.

A small cut in the gum is sometimes necessary, and the tooth may need to be cut into smaller pieces before it's removed.

It takes anything from a few minutes to 20 minutes, or sometimes even longer, to remove a wisdom tooth.

After your wisdom teeth have been removed, you may have swelling and discomfort, both inside and outside your mouth. Occasionally, some mild bruising is also visible. This is usually improves after 3 days, but it can take up to 2 weeks. If this continues for longer, or progresses, please get in touch with the team at Kingsclere Dental Practice as soon as possible.


You can't keep an impaction from occurring but keeping your regular dental appointments for cleaning and reviews enables your dentist to monitor the growth and emergence of your wisdom teeth. Regularly updated dental X-rays may indicate impacted wisdom teeth before any symptoms develop.

If you have any concerns about your wisdom teeth, or are experiencing any pain, give us a call on 01420 82365.

The atmosphere is pleasant, and procedures are often explained beforehand with varying options which makes you feel like you're in control.

17th November 2023

The attitude of both Ben & Sam. I have known them for some time and they always treat me with respect and professionalism. More than anything, I love their sense of humour. That may seem a strange reason for feeling at ease, but it's an important one for me.There was also a 'Stand-out' reason why the appointment yesterday was special. Both Sam & Ben commented on how I looked. Ben in particular was extremely complimentary considering that the last time I was at KIngsclere I didnn't know that I was close to being rushed to hospital and having just 12 hours to live. The fact they both remembered how I looked before & me now, having come through the heart scare I had, meant a lot to me. If they are like that with me, I know that they will and I'm sure do, treat all their patients with their special blend of care.It's that last word that sums it all up...they really do care.

17th November 2023

I have always found Ben to be an excellent dentist in every way!

Luisa Reynolds

Absolutely brilliant 1st experience here. Recommended by 2 friends and I can see why. Lovely reception team to welcome you and the dentist I saw Preetpal Marjara was fantastic. Took time to thoroughly examine my teeth and gums, took x-rays which he showed me and talked me through. I felt like a valued patient and the customer service was excellent. I'm so pleased, I'm moving my kids here as well. Can't recommend them highly enough. Worth mentioning I came to Kingsclere for a second opinion as My Dentist told me I needed 5 fillings and a tooth out which was completely unnecessary and therefore saved me nearly £1000 and a lot of discomfort.

I cam to Cliff Rush as I had a phobia for dentists and had an extreme gag reflex. Cliff gained my confidence but I was concerned when he retired. Ben has taken over my dental care & has started to understand me so I can attend treatment, not yet to the level that Cliff did but that was a hard act to follow. Sam has taken over hygiene & is a lot better than the previous lady as she listens & understands my gag problem. The experience yesterday was almost pleasant. It also has to be said that the receptionists are always very helpful, eg yesterday, as the appt with Ben had to be moved to next week I got a bit confused about times on the 2 days, despite feeling a bit silly Denise the receptionist was very understanding & helpful. Great team

I was received on time with great courtesy by the reception team, my hygienist came and invited me into her surgery in person and while there was treated with great consideration, given the fact I was suffering from hip pain which made lying horizontal a bit of a challenge. Similarly with my dentist, the dental nurse and dentist were both friendly, respectful, considerate and kind. I could not have asked for a more helpful team.

24th February 2023

As per my answers to your previous questions

23rd February 2023

Preet and his nurse were both very professional and I am very satisfied with the work done . However when phoning for an appointment my call was not answered it would be helpful to have a call back service

The dentist, hygienist and assistants were very helpful and pleasant. They explained everything in detail.

22nd February 2023

Everything went like clockwork. Nicely welcomed by the front desk staff, hygienist and assistant were first class, and dentist and nurse very calming.

I have been with Kingsclere for about 5 years now, the last year or so with Jay. I rang the Practice last week with a concern, and the Receptionist kindly gave me an emergency appointment yesterday. As always, Jay treated me with the utmost professionalism and compassion. I would also like to thank his Dental Nurse, Hasna, for her support. Many thanks.

10th January 2023

2nd December 2022

Very efficient and timely.

1st December 2022

I was terrified by dentists until I was introduced to Cliff Rush. He helped me get over my fears without being condescending or dismissive about them so I slowly learnt to trust him. I have now had root canal work, teeth extraction, replacement teeth and been helped to cope with a very reactive gag reflex due to my experience in earlier life. I was concerned when Cliff retired but he explained to Ben what my problems were and Ben has been extremely helpful and understanding. Consequently I have recommended quite a few friends to make contact as the service is so good.

1st December 2022

Quick and efficient, zero pain, overall a positive experience (even tho it was a filling) Ben is great and nurses in training completely unobtrusive

26th November 2022

Super service and attention.Little more to say, except....thank you.

24th November 2022

I think the implementation of a £1.25 per minute charge for failing to appear at an appointment is extreme. Sometimes things in life are beyond our control and to be punished for them is unacceptable. Will patients be compensated to a similar degree if a dentist develops , for example, covid and is quite rightly unable to attend a clinic.

24th November 2022

Ben dealt with my problem efficiently & professionally.

24th November 2022

All personnel were very polite and helpful. Dentist Ben done a full examination of my teeth and took X-rays. He then pointed out the teeth which need liking after which may further attention in the future.

16th November 2022

Sam is always professional, capable, helpful and cheerful - just what you want with your hygeinist!I would also like a special mention for my new dentist Prabitha whom I saw for the first time at my previous check up. She was extremely professional and was able to sort out an existing problem that my previous dentist did not. I felt I was in very capable hands with Pabritha - fingers crossed I am able to keep her.

11th November 2022

I had a difficult extraction which seriously overran and no point did I ever perceive that it was problematical for the team. Senior expertise was consulted as required.

27th October 2022

Jay explained what he was doing and gave a small amount of anaesthetic as it was possible he may pinch the gum. He was very thorough and reassuring.

9th June 2022

Sam was very professional and thorough. She also provided very good advice.

9th June 2022

I am phobic of the dentist and it was the first appointment I’ve ever had where I felt relaxed and had total confidence in the dental practitioner

3rd June 2022

everything went smoothly

31st May 2022

Time taken to explain what was happening. Careful and took time whilst treating me. Dental nurse also kind and patient.

31st May 2022

Courtesy and professionalism

29th May 2022

Dr Ben Matthews is an extremely likeable and pleasant man who gives one his full attention. Does not give the impression of being rushed and has time for a chat as well as discussing the problem. His nurse ably supports him.As a long time friend and patient of Dr Cliff Rush, I had considered leaving the practice when he retired but am content to remain as I am very happy with Dr Matthews.

26th May 2022

The treatment I received was highly satisfactory and the dental hygienist and her assistant were first class.Some small issues:My appointment was 12.15 and I wasn't seen till 12.25The reception area is very sterile (hopefully the newspapers can return shortly) and what about a nice painting on the wall behind reception at about 10 feet off the ground?The receptionists did not really engage with those waiting - if they weren't answering the telephone they were talking to each other. They always say you can learn a lot about the organisation from the reception you receive at reception

26th May 2022

Problems explained well.

26th May 2022

I am very afraid of visiting the dentist but my dentist does his absolute best to allay my fears expains everything and does not rush

26th May 2022

No fault found, although booking a hygienist is next to impossible.

25th May 2022

I was treated with professionalism and courtesy during my appointment.

25th May 2022

I have a phobia of the dentist and Sam was incredibly patient, understanding and empathetic. There was no judgement from either her or the nurse. They both made me feel comfortable and ensured that I was in control of the pace of treatment. They built my trust.

25th May 2022

Everything was good

20th May 2022

13th May 2022

As someone with a highly reactive gag reflex & deep-seated anxiety of dentists from childhood bad memories I need time to relax, stay calm and have understanding with the gag reflex in particular. Cliff Rush gained my confidence & now Ben is doing the same as he and his nurse understand what I need.

13th May 2022

Ben's manner is exceptional. His customer service is above and beyond expectations. He's very personable and my boys love going to the dentist! They both comment on how nice Ben is. I wanted to extend my thanks and appreciation, so I was happy to receive your survey. I hope he gets this feedback.

12th May 2022

Efficient friendly staff.

12th May 2022

Professional, courteous, well explained treatment

11th May 2022

I have been very unhappy in the past but this appointment has been totally different. I am very happy with my new dentist, Ben. Today I had a hygienist appointment with Samantha. Past experiences have led me to dread hygienist appointments but she was brilliant. I cannot praise her highly enough as she explained everything, listened to my concerns and I found it very reassuring.

10th May 2022

Excellent service and fully explained treatment

8th May 2022

29th April 2022

Appointment commenced on time and work took as long as predicted.This meant I was ready and knew what to expect.

27th April 2022

The whole team at Kingsclere Dental Practice are always friendly & helpful

26th April 2022

I changed my dentist and had a much better experience.

26th April 2022

On time very nice dentist hope he stays longer than the last two!

25th April 2022

Ben has a gentle manner when working in the mouth, some dentists can be rough, he is always pleasant and polite and it seems respectful to explain what procedures he is doing and why.

24th April 2022

I have a complex problem but it was dealt with efficiently, professionally and the clinician was very empathetic and put me at ease.

24th April 2022

First of all it was a Saturday morning appointment, which other dentist opens on a Saturday?Sam was amazing as usual. Very friendly, efficient and professional.

Emma Browning

I have recently joined Kingclere dental practice as a private patient and I had extremely bad tooth ache, I call the practice and the reception were amazing, kind and very welcoming and I was offered an apt the same day and was prescribed some antibiotics. A week later I had a root canal treatment with Dr Mathews, and I can honestly say it was the most painless procedure I have had done at a dentist. I have recently move from an NHS practice to kingsclere and will not go back.

20th April 2022

Absolutely nothing to complain about

13th April 2022

Seen immediately on arrival. Very friendly staff. Felt informed by the dentist as the examination went along.

13th April 2022

I use the Practice because of Ben Matthews. If he wasn't there I would not use the practice as its not local & the customer service from Reception/Admin is poor.

10th April 2022

Friendly and easy to understand hygienist

8th April 2022

They looked after me, I arrived having an asthma attack due to the cold weather and the reception staff looked after me and a hygienist checked on me twice. They also moved my appointment downstairs without me asking.

However, I was offered a new date & time within the next 2 weeks and so very happy!I arrived early and my appointment started on time.Both the Dentist and Dental Nurse were very welcoming and professional. This was my first appointment with them and they were both very good. The Dentist explained everything as we went through the check up and we quickly built up a rapport. Although I find myself with yet another 'new' dentist, I do hope that this one will be staying for a few years!

6th March 2022

I thought the new dentist Jay was very friendly and professional and thorough and the hygienist Michelle was also very thorough and kind and made me feel at ease.

4th March 2022

This was an emergency appointment as part of a tooth had broken off a few days before.

A Williams

I had an appointment with Michelle the dental hygienist today. She was very professional, friendly and welcoming. She did an excellent job of scaling and polishing my teeth and gave me some really good information on how to take care of my teeth and gums. Highly recommended practice will definitely be returning


Jack Robinson

Couldn't recommend enough! Ben and Ollie are a fantastic team. I actually enjoy going to the dentist here.


Tim Miller

Staff and dentists are very helpful and provide a great service.


Keith Bingham

I can only give Envisage the highest rating possible, it's deserved. The care given by all dental staff is excellent & they went out of their way to help me out recently when a chunk of enamel came away from one of my teeth. I was able to get the tooth repaired very quickly and it's this sort of Customer Care that makes Envisage stand out.& have enabled them to exceed my expectations.


Jon Le Roux

Very friendly. Great with kids. I was told that I needed to attend less - very impressive for a private service!!


Andy Martin

Staff/dentists are all very friendly. They take time to explain the options to you and answer any questions. I feel that I get a good level of care.


Sandra Day

Very professional, clean warm dental clinic. The dentist spent a lot of time explaining everything to me. I didn’t feel rushed at all. I left feeling very confident that he had done a thorough exam of my teeth and fully knew the problems and solutions.


Sue Hurdle

First time I have seen the lady dentist so lovely very caring both her and the nurse


Hels Palmer

Anyone who knows me well will know I have a bit of anxiety problem when it comes to dentist visits. Alike many others I’m sure, I know I am no exception. After meeting my dentist Ben Matthews at another practice in Guildford I knew when he moved on to Envisage Dental in Alton I had to follow. As did my family and my parents as they feel exactly the same. My previous dentist had absolutely no reassuring values he was condescending and would consistently quiz me on my diet and sugar intake. I am by no means squeaky clean in that department as I have a bit of a love affair with Coke Zero. So after meeting Ben I got on with him straight away, he took time to chat and reassured me and talk me through any procedure I needed. Being of a nervous disposition when it comes to dentistry, Ben throughout would encourage me to breathe... ridiculous as it sounds, I get so wound up that I hold my breath and get myself in a bit of a state most of the time. Ben and all the people I have met at Envisage Dental are a credit to the profession and that I have found is a rarity. If you’re after a dentist who can respect modern day living with a heart Envisage Dental is the place! You’re welcome!


hugh wallis

The Envisage staff are wonderful and extremely friendly. The treatment is excellent and you are in safe hands. I would recommend them to anyone


Julie Foster

Staff are very welcoming, my treatment was explained to me in a way that i could understand. Nothing was too much trouble, i would recommend this practice to those who want a bit more than just dental treatment. It's the full package! Thank you Clare for showing me how to do a google review, it's my first!


Vicki Etherton

Such a friendly and welcoming practice. I always have a positive experience when visiting and have recommended to my friends and family. Keep up the amazing work guys :)


Gareth Smy

I've had a great experience with the Envisage team so far (currently halfway through an invisalign treatment). Ben and the team make you feel right at home whilst providing a very high degree of professionalism.



I would highly recommend Envisage Dental Alton. I have been a customer for some time and the staff are highly professional. I would especially like to commend Clare and Vivienne who are the reception team for making me feel welcome and they always go over and above to ensure that the experience at Envisage Dental is special. Thank you and keep on smiling.


Tim Main

Whilst visiting the dentist is not naturally something one typically looks forward too !, I would not hesitate to recommend Bali and the team at Envisage in Alton. They are always welcoming, professional and Bali completed my dental treatment very efficiently, with a welcome smile, combined with authoritative knowledge and experience. Tim


Laura Rana

I had choosen to look at an alternative dentist as I had terrible anxiety at my local dentist and as I had started thinking about getting my teeth straightened I found Envisage Dental. Any dental work has always petrified me and even the thought of having a checkup sends me into meltdown but praise where praise is due... Ben Matthews, Naomi, Hannah and the team at Alton have made my visits so much easier. the reassurance and comfort provided is nothing less then perfect. They understood my anxieties, made me tea to settle my nerves and gave constant and thorough updates on what was happening and why which is so useful to a nervous patient like me. The Receptionist has also been a delight to deal with working around my work to fit me in and a very sweet lady. I personally cannot fault Ben as a dentist, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and I look forward to continuing my treatment with the Alton practice. I will be recommending this practice to all that I know.


Ashli Wilson

I couldn’t recommend Envisage enough - staff are always welcoming and friendly. The dentist is so reassuring and the memberships are perfect so I don’t end up with a big bill every 6 months!


James Lavender

Wonderful staff very efficient and reliable. Gentle and thorough thank you for looking after me


Andrew Sutherland

Very happy to use this practise. An extremely professional service from an excellent team of friendly and helpful staff.


Rebecca Male

Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere with very attentive and kind staff, it’s easy to find and in a convenient location so you park in the car park opposite and run some errands in the town centre after your appointment, I would recommend it.


Joe Male

Amazing job and very friendly dentists; recommend it.


Daljit Bains

Would strongly recommend Envisage clinics to anyone. Fabulous Team and have received excellent customer service at all times. They have highly trained Staff for everyone’s requirements. Superb!


Gurjit Kaur

Always make me feel relaxed and comfortable. Outstanding and by far the greatest around. Would highly recommend any Envisage clinic.


Jeremy Duggan

Just home from another stress free hygiene appointment with the lovely Naomi (I'm never quite sure if I've just been told off by Naomi or not..!) A convenient, welcoming, friendly, efficient dental practice with a great monthly payment scheme. Thank you Envisage Alton.


Paul Martin

Best ever , my dentist is Ben. He is so calm reassuring, informative and most importantly very positive. Could not recommend more highly.


Clare Tillin

Went to Ben and his team after suffering from bad teeth and they gave me back confidence in trusting a dentist. The work they did is fantastic. My husband also had a severe toothache over the weekend and they fitted him in the same day and he is also very happy with Ben and his team. Can’t thank you all enough. Thank u all again. We have also decided to take our younger children to this dentist as we both feel they will be looked after.


Jaz Johnson

After finding out about an Invisilign offer through a friend with Bali who was about to start offering the service I was very well informed and looked after from the offset. Due to time constraints I chose to start my treatment earlier with Ben so my smile would be ready for my wedding! He assured me as a nervous patient it can be done even with my complicated over crowding and took me on quickly. The reception staff are exceptionally polite and very welcoming. To the point when its time to go I want to stay and chat! The Nurse Laura has been a huge help and not minded when I've asked a garble of questions about the treatment and kept me in formed. She and Ben have a great manner when I'm sat in the chair and put me at ease. It's lovely coming back and the staff remember what we spoke about last time I was there! It really does make a difference. The building itself is always warm and has a great atmosphere. It really is a pleasure to get here even after an hr bus drive each way and they don't mind if I'm a bit too early and sit in the waiting room! I'm a third of the way through treatment now and can't wait for the results! A huge thank you to everyone who works here and they really should pat themselves on the back with all there fantastic work. A credit to the envisage company.


Ian Watts

I have just completed a course of treatment that has extended over several months to replace old crowns and a bridge. Several old fillings were also replaced. I was attended to by Bali in a most professional manner and following discussions a treatment scope was developed. This was split into several treatment plans starting with a whitening kit to enable a good colour match throughout. During the treatment Bali and her assistants have ensured that I was comfortable and well informed throughout and appointments were never rushed. I was impressed by the use of new technology in providing temporary crowns from moulds taken during the appointment. I am now the proud owner of a set of nice whitened teeth, so smiles all round and thanks to the staff at Envisage Dental including the receptionists for booking all the appointments and Naomi for the advice in keeping them in tip top shape.


Robert Simpson

I unfortunately lost a filling and been so close to Christmas I didn’t think I would been seen by anybody. They booked me in first thing and I ended up having two fillings. The service was great, all the staff are extremely friendly. I will be using this practice for all my dental work in the future. Thanks again for great service


Caroline Wallis

I am happy with my recent treatment with Ben. He dealt with everything calmly kindly and professionally. I am happy to recommend envisage dental alton.


Jane Freeman-Hunt

A really friendly and professional service. Lovely people


Melanie Momber

Had a problem with a lost filling - I got an appointment within 24 hours. Very helpful and lovely people at Envisage - they made my appointment a very positive experience. I would recommend them to anyone who is nervous about "going to the dentist".


Ben Cummins

Brilliant team, service and professionalism


Helen Martin mm

Envisage Dental's goal is to be "the most loved private dentist around" and I can honestly say they have absolutely hit the nail on the head. I have never had such a happy and positive experience. I arrived terrified, incredibly nervous and hugely lacking in confidence and doing everything I could to hide my mouth. Every single member of staff without exception put me at ease, was kind and genuine, just astonishingly lovely people. My dentist, Ben, cut through all the technical terminology to make a treatment simple to understand but most of all effective. Within 48 hours of my first appointment he had provided a solution that gave me my smile for the first time in 16 years and the confidence that the ultimate result was also simple & achievable. I was utterly overwhelmed by the kindness, positivity and professionalism of Ben and his team. I burst into tears on the spot, I never knew I could look this way (and this is just the temporary fix!!). I am moving my entire family to this practice. Thank you Ben and Envisage, you are going to shake up the dental world if my experience is anything to go by and I am certain it is the same experience felt by all the other patients who come through your doors as you are all so genuine. Thank you, thank you. The only reason my mouth hurts now is simply from smiling this much!!! Didn't know it felt this good. You've changed my life.


Clive Hutton

I have been with this practice for over 15 years, and cannot praise them highly enough. I cannot praise them highly enough.


clare joanna
