Why remove wisdom teeth ?
The dental community is in agreement in recommending the extraction of wisdom teeth that are symptomatic or represent a risk to oral health (pain, infection, damage to other teeth, etc.). They are extracted in 75% of the inhabitants of the 36 most developed countries.
Wisdom teeth appear later than other teeth: eruption usually takes place between the ages of 16 and 25. The wisdom tooth is the third molar, the last back tooth in the dental arch.
Planning an operation
The Rhone Dental Clinic adapts to the most demanding schedules and private requirements of each patient. We guarantee a rigorous punctuality and offer an emergency service in case of necessity.
Removal of wisdom teeth in our clinic
We reduce the risk of minor trauma so that you can return to normal activity the day after the operation.
1. Full diagnosis
It is performed using 3D panoramic imaging to define the exact location of each wisdom tooth, its anatomical position, as well as the axes of eruption and the state of alignment of the arches. This diagnosis allows us to decide whether extractions are necessary or can be avoided.
2. Personalised sedation technique
Specifically adapted to the patient, it is intended to erase the apprehension of the time of the intervention and the stress related to the surgical act.
3. Limited number of surgical and sedation procedures
The protocol includes all the wisdom teeth to be extracted at once.
4. Extraction is a double chance for the future
We offer our patients the conservation of their teeth according to a precise method. As soon as the teeth are extracted, they are sent according to a very strict protocol to a laboratory to extract and reproduce the stem cells of the dental pulp.
Your comfort first
In order to limit the number of sedations and inconveniences, and to avoid multiple appointments with the dentist. Rhône Dental Clinic organises a specific protocol so that the extraction of wisdom teeth is not a painful memory but a simple medical formality.
For this, we will put your comfort first. After the intervention of our specialist, you will be able to rest for a while and enjoy a photobiomodulation session thanks to our exclusive device: the ATP38.
How does it work ?
After your operation, you will have a 15-minute relaxation session with the device above your face.
Using light energy, the ATP38 converts it into metabolic energy to stimulate the production of molecules.
Thanks to specific programmes, including the healing programme, we are able to amplify the cells’ natural repairing metabolism in order to reduce pain and healing time.
The benefits of atp38 can be summarised as follows

We guarantee a painless postoperative period, while avoiding even minor complications. The patient can resume his or her activities the next day.
Conservation of stem cells from wisdom teeth
Why is it so important to preserve your dental stem cells, contained in your wisdom teeth?
Advances in scientific research confirm the tremendous potential of stem cells for a variety of therapeutic applications. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to self-renew throughout an individual’s life and also have the capacity to differentiate, under certain conditions, into many specialised cell types. This allows patients to use their own cells, without the need to find a donor match and with a reduced risk of rejection. Licensed biobanks specialising in the preparation and storage of pulp stem cells provide access to the regenerative medicine of tomorrow.
You have probably already heard of stem cells, without knowing that your dental pulp has them!
Among the different types of stem cells, those of the dental pulp have the advantage of being pluripotent and of being able to be cryopreserved and stored for long periods without losing their essential properties of multiplication and differentiation. Like baby teeth, wisdom teeth are growing organs and therefore immature. For this reason their pulp (central area, also called “nerve”) contains highly proliferating stem cells.
Easily accessible, dental pulp stem cells are recovered by non-invasive surgical procedures, such as tooth extraction. The tooth must be healthy and removed for medical reasons.
Wisdom teeth, often extracted in young adults aged 16-25, can be a very good source of stem cells because at this stage the pulp is large and the potential for viable cells is high. Learn more about stem cells
The current state of scientific knowledge shows that the applications of adult stem cells are numerous and offer great therapeutic hopes for medicine. As a pioneer in this field, our clinic offers a protocol for the preservation of your dental stem cells, taken from your wisdom teeth, then cultivated for a few weeks in the laboratory before being preserved permanently. Responding to a growing demand from our patients, the preservation of stem cells opens the way to many future cellular therapies.
