Wisdom teeth extraction in Sydney
Wisdom teeth removal is amongst the most common of our Sydney oral surgery procedures. Wisdom teeth (otherwise known as third molars) don’t usually develop until the late teens or early adulthood and grow at the back of your mouth.
Because they are the last teeth to arrive, they often have to grow into a mouth that already has a full set of teeth. This means they can erupt at unfortunate angles or fail to emerge fully. When this occurs it’s known as ‘impacted wisdom teeth.
Why is Sydney wisdom teeth removal necessary?
Like any teeth, wisdom teeth can trap bacteria and food particles. Impacted wisdom teeth are particularly susceptible because they are more difficult to clean.
Failure to remove food and bacteria causes plaque to build up which can lead to:
- Soft-tissue infections
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
If you are experiencing any of these or other problems with your wisdom teeth, then call Sydney Dental Group for a wisdom tooth assessment.
Our dentists will make a decision about the necessity for wisdom teeth removal during your initial consultation appointment at our Sydney clinic. We have extensive experience in all aspects of oral surgery and are well equipped to deal with both simple wisdom teeth extraction and impacted wisdom tooth removal in Sydney. As such we have the skills to take on more complex cases but if necessary, we also maintain close working relationships with Sydney oral surgery specialists and can, therefore, refer you if the need arises.
Wisdom teeth procedures can be completed chairside under a local anaesthetic and, for more nervous patients, we can offer IV Sedation to aid relaxation. We also have TVs to keep you distracted. If you prefer to be asleep in hospital, we are affiliated with hospitals in Sydney and can do these procedures under general anaesthetic.
Our dentists will take the time to explain exactly what your wisdom teeth removal surgery involves and talk to you about the cost.
Wisdom tooth extraction aftercare
As with any surgery, wisdom tooth extraction carries a few potential risks including stiffness of the jaw and very rarely, numbness. It’s natural for patients to experience a dull ache once the effects of the anaesthetic have worn off and over-the-counter painkillers can usually deal effectively will this.
Depending on the complexity of your wisdom tooth extraction, Sydney patents may also experience some facial swelling and bruising.
Our caring team will explain the importance of not rinsing your mouth for 12-24 hours and to eat softer foods for the first few days following surgery. The blood clot that forms in the tooth socket following wisdom tooth removal should also be preserved for as long as possible.
If you have any concerns relating to wisdom teeth removal in Sydney, please do not hesitate to contact our experienced dentists at Sydney Dental Group.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
