How do I know if I need my wisdom teeth removed?

Unfortunately, usually the first time you know is when you experience pain, or get an infection or abscess.

Remember:

  • Antibiotics are just a short-term solution for infection and impacted wisdom teeth.
  • Wisdom teeth removal is best done early as infection can cause other health problems.
  • You need a consultation with an oral surgeon to determine which teeth you need removed.
  • We recommend that you have a panoramic x-ray so your oral surgeon can evaluate your teeth and nerve structure.
  • You have a choice of local or general anaesthetic.
  • If you’re travelling overseas for an extended period, it’s best to remove any compromised wisdom teeth before you leave.
  • Removing your wisdom teeth can prevent crowding, so your front teeth stay straighter.

Sometimes it’s safe to leave your wisdom teeth intact, though. You can read more about wisdom teeth here.

No waiting list

It’s easy to get an appointment, over the phone or online 24/7. We’ll always book you in for an initial consultation so we can see just what needs to be done. If the problem is urgent, we’ll try to deal with the problem on that same visit.

We talk you through the treatment we propose – step by step – and make sure you’re completely comfortable with all your options (including general anaesthesia and IV sedation or ‘sleep dentistry’).

Whatever your wisdom tooth problem, we assess each case individually.

Wisdom Teeth Removal to Sidestep Extreme Pain and Discomfort

Why Wisdom Teeth Removal Necessary?

Wisdom teeth, also called the third molars are the last teeth to come through and grow at the back of your gums. These teeth usually grow through the gums during the late teens or early twenties. As wisdom teeth are grown by this time, there is not enough room in the mouth for them to grow properly. This lack of space propels wisdom teeth to emerge at an odd angle or make them partially emerge. This irregular growth of wisdom teeth is called as impacted wisdom teeth.

Removal of wisdom teeth isn’t necessary, if they are not impacted. But, we recommend undergoing wisdom teeth removal surgery in Sydney, if you are experiencing any of the following complications.

  • Dental Caries – Since wisdom teeth are located far in the back of the mouth, it’s difficult to clean and keep it free of bacteria and plaque. Accumulation of plaque erodes the surface of your teeth and causes cavities in the tooth, which can affect the surrounding teeth.
  • Gingivitis – Commonly called as gum disease, it is caused by the toxins released by plaque. It results in red swollen and painful gums that affects the bone and causes severe pain.
  • Pericoronitis – This can be easily diagnosed during a clinical exam. It is the inflammation of the gum tissue surrounding the partially erupted wisdom teeth. This is often accompanied by symptoms like fever, swelling, and pain which indicate a spreading infection.
  • Bacterial infection in the cheek, tongue or throat.
  • Cyst growth in the place of wisdom teeth.

Most often, we perform panoramic x-ray to evaluate your teeth condition and its nerve structure. We also recommend antibiotics and antiseptic mouthwash as a short term solution for impacted wisdom teeth in Sydney.

Effective Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedures

As stated earlier, we will take an X-ray of your mouth to determine the complexity of the problem and the exact treatment option. Generally, we perform wisdom teeth removal in Sydney under general anaesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding area. This is done to elude the pain or any discomfort that causes while performing the surgery.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Surgery

During the wisdom teeth removal surgery, our professionals will make a small incision in the gum and a piece of bone covering the tooth will be removed. The wisdom tooth to be removed will be broken into multiple smaller pieces to make it easier to come out of the opening. The wisdom teeth removal in Sydney will not be painful because the surgical area would be made numb before the surgery begins. In case, if you are experiencing any pain during the surgery, tell our local anaesthetic immediately so that he can give you more anaesthetic.

Duration of the Procedure

Simple wisdom teeth removal procedure will be completed within a few minutes but can take longer than 20 minutes if the process is more complicated. You will also experience minor discomforts like swelling of gums and bleeding for at least three days after surgery.
