Should a GP Remove Your Wisdom Teeth?

Should a GP remove your wisdom teeth? This may sound like an odd title, but give me a minute. Before starting I, an upper cervical care specialist, want to make it clear I have a lot of respect for the work of GP’s (general practitioners) and Dentists. The work of GP’s is vital to help patients with everyday problems and to refer when necessary. Without Dentists we could be subject to a life of pain and more susceptible to other health conditions (e.g. poor oral hygiene can result in heart problems, such as infective endocarditis – Read more here).

But back to the title, ‘Should my GP remove my wisdom teeth?’. The short answer for this is…no! This is not to say a GP, or any other medical doctor, aren’t very intelligent and highly skilled. However, this is not their field so it is best to refer to the professional that does specialise in this field. Similarly (not to bash your GP) if you have a general health complaint it makes more sense to see your GP and not your Dentist. Again, Dentists are very smart and well trained, but overall health is not their area of expertise.

So, should a GP remove your wisdom teeth? This may seem like a strange topic, but it is very applicable to Chiropractic too. At Vitality Chiropractic we pride ourselves in being specialists in the nervous system, specifically the upper neck where the brain stem is located. We have found we can offer our patients the best changes in their health by focusing on this specific area and honing our skills to do so.

We regularly work with other aligned health professionals to give our patients the best results possible. We work with physiotherapists, nutritionists, masseurs, meditation teachers, as well as GPs and Dentists to ensure our patients are always in the best hands. We do not focus on massage, exercise or acupuncture as these are not part of upper cervical chiropractic care and there are other much more qualified professionals available!

Since 2013, Upper Cervical Chiropractor, Dr. Shaan Rai has helped patients achieve greater health, relocating to Singapore in 2016 and founding Vitality Chiropractic Centres. He has an impressive track record in providing relief and solutions for people who experience nerve system problems, such as headaches, migraines, dizziness, vertigo or neurological conditions.
