Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom Teeth Removal in Glenmore Park – Comfortable Treatments, Affordable options
If a dental professional has told you that you may need wisdom teeth removal, Glenmore park residents should know that they’re not alone. In Sydney for example, somewhere between 65% and 85% of young adults have at least one of their wisdom teeth extracted. So it’s a very common procedure.
Why are wisdom teeth so troublesome?
Wisdom teeth grow at the back of the mouth and are the final set of molars to grow through. This presents problems because they usually develop long after the jaw has matured. In many cases there simply isn’t sufficient room for these troublesome teeth to grow and inevitably as they erupt, they can cause problems to your adjacent healthy teeth. For this reason, wisdom teeth removal is often the best option.
You may be feeling pain at the back of your mouth around the gums or you may experience swelling. Alternatively, you might feel no discomfort at all, but even so, your dentist has decided that the removal of one or more of your third molars is the best option.
Using the latest CBCT X-Ray technology our Glenmore Park dentist in NSW will see pretty quickly whether you have a wisdom tooth problem. As a result, our dentist will extract wisdom teeth if they are:
- Impacting on adjacent teeth
- Difficult or impossible to clean or maintain
- Erupting at a funny angle,
- Failing to come through at all; or
- Generally impinging on your oral health.
Moreover, if wisdom teeth partially erupt, they can allow bacteria into the exposed gum flap. This is known as pericoronitis.
Wisdom teeth extractions in Glenmore Park – The removal process
Most wisdom teeth can be surgically extracted chairside just like any other teeth and treatment is usually comfortable and fast.
- First, our dentist will numb the area using a local anaesthetic.
- Next, the socket is widened so that the offending tooth can be removed.
- Finally, the tooth is gently rocked backwards and forwards until it comes out.
Simple tooth extractions only take a few minutes however more complex extractions can take longer
