Wisdom teeth removal in Nagoya Japan


Wisdom teeth removal in Nagoya Japan

A few years ago, I got my two wisdom teeth removed in Nagoya Japan.  Even though I was born and raised in Japan, it was really scary and I was concerned about it before having the surgery. Recently, there are a lot of foreigners in Nagoya and sometimes they feel so concerned when they have tooth pain, especially from a wisdom tooth. So I would like to share my experience on this page.


First of all, let me give you a short summary of my wisdom teeth removal below.

In summer of 2019, I felt pain from my lower jaws and soon I thought this pain was from my wisdom teeth. I got wisdom teeth on my upper jaw  removed 10 years ago when I was a university student. And this pain was the almost same as what I experienced before.

I already knew that compared to wisdom teeth on the upper jaw, it was harder to remove wisdom teeth on the lower jaw. I decided to go to Miyakawa dental clinic because its website said they can do wisdom teeth removal, which is a little bit difficult.

I went to Miyakawa dental clinic and the dentist checked my jaws using X ray and said his place could not remove my wisdom teeth because it needs difficult surgery. He made a referral to Aichi gakuin university dental hospital. Medical costs including a referral was about 3000yen. 


Aichi gakuin university dental hospital is a most famous dental hospital in Nagoya area, which mainly focuses on difficult surgery.

Some people may say that I have to go to Aichi gakuin dental hospital first but that is wrong. This dental hospital has a lot of patients and needs a reservation to remove wisdom teeth and it will take at least 1 month to your turn to be pulled out. So in order to identify whether your wisdom teeth are difficult to remove or not you have to go to a small dental clinic first. If it is easy to do that, a dentist will soon get  your wisdom teeth removed the same day when you go. This article shows English speaking dentists in Nagoya area so I recommend that you go these dentists if you want to communicate with them in English.

Then I went to Aichi gakuin dental hospital with a referral. A dentist checked my jaws and showed me two options of anesthesia. One is not strong anesthesia so I am awake during the operation. I have to go to hospital two times to remove my two wisdom teeth one by one. I don’t need to stay at hospital at night after each operation. Compared to the latter way, this is quite cheaper. I guess 20,000 yen. Second option is to use a little bit of strong anesthesia. This will lead me to a kind of sleep and I can get my two wisdom teeth removed without noticing surgery. After removal, I have to stay in the hospital at night to check my recovery. 

Wisdom teeth removal surgery that I took is like this YouTube and I strongly believed that I can’t endure this type of operation while awake so I choose the second option. Accommodation fee was about 10,000yen and the surgery was about 30,000 yen.

I went to Aichi gakuin dentist hospital 2 times before surgery to check my jaw and then make a reservation and then I got surgery. It was not so scary because I was sedated and I didn’t know what happened. Then I got up in my room at the hospital. Next day, I had breakfast prepared by hospital and then the dentist checked my jaws.  About 10days later, I went to the hospital again to remove the surgical thread. That’s what I experienced.
