So why do wisdom teeth need to be removed in the first place?

Wisdom teeth, otherwise known as third molars, are usually the last to erupt. While some people have no problems with their wisdom teeth, a good many others will. The fact is that in the modern world, our third molars aren’t really needed and because they’re located at the very back of the mouth, often, there simply isn’t enough room for them to grow.

Even for those people who have good oral health, when wisdom teeth problems arise, a dentist may recommend removal. It’s not unusual for wisdom teeth to be positioned crookedly or even sideways and will usually be spotted during a routine dental check-up. When this happens they can cause problems to adjacent teeth, so wisdom tooth extraction is the best option.

How does the tooth extraction process work for Shellharbour dental patients?

During a consultation, our dental team at Shellharbour will go over your medical and dental history. Next, if it’s a simple non-impacted tooth extraction, the area will be numbed with anaesthetic and the wisdom tooth will be gently removed. Patients should feel no pain during the procedure as the area is numbed but may feel some slight pressure. The whole process should be over in a few minutes. After extraction, our Shellharbour team will give you aftercare instructions including medications to take if you do feel any pain. For more complex wisdom tooth extractions, Shellharbour Dentists have a visiting team of experts, such as Dr. Pat Pandey, who are extensively experienced in complex wisdom teeth removal. Extraction procedures can be carried out under either a local or general anaesthetic or IV sedation. As such, when it comes to simple or impacted wisdom teeth removal, Shellharbour dentists can deal with most types of teeth extractions and do it at affordable rates. If you have a complicated medical background or if the wisdom teeth are too close to the nerve, then we will refer you to our trusted specialist.
