Wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth are the last to emerge through the gums and usually develop in young people between the ages of 17 to 25. Antibiotics are generally the first line of defence for treating pain, but you’ll need a consultation for this, which we can do for you at the practice.

If we find that it would be better in the long-term for the teeth to be removed however, then we’ll discuss this with you and outline the treatment involved.

Symptoms

In most circumstances, there isn’t enough room in the mouth to accommodate some wisdom teeth and as they grow, they may begin to put strain on your existing teeth. This can cause a domino effect of problems such as:
  • Severe pain 
  • Difficulty brushing 
  • Increased food and bacteria build-up 
  • Increased decay 
  • Gum infection 
  • Ulcers 
  • Chewing problems 
  • Teeth crowding, as some teeth are pushed into others at unnatural angles to make room 
Left untreated, wisdom teeth infections can lead to other serious infections in the mouth and body, and the longer they’re left unattended, the more costly the treatment will be. Many people see a dentist when they feel discomfort or pain, but you can’t afford to wait for pain to see a dentist.

Often you won’t experience wisdom tooth-related pain until it’s too late and the damage has already begun. That’s why it’s critical to attend regular check-ups, so our highly skilled team can monitor your oral health and provide advice.
