Your wisdom teeth, or your third molars, are the last permanent teeth that appear and typically emerge between the ages of 18-21.
However, only some individuals get their wisdom teeth, and even when they do, they may not cause much trouble. In certain instances, wisdom teeth that don’t erupt properly can leave you in pain and cause problems like infections and damage to surrounding teeth.
In such cases, wisdom tooth removal is your best option for a healthy, pain-free smile. With a team of skilled and experienced dental professionals, we ensure safe and effective wisdom teeth removal procedures for our patients at Port Melbourne Dental.
Not everyone will have to get their wisdom teeth removed. However, in most cases, this treatment is required. Therefore, it is important to understand why and when this procedure is necessary.
You must have enough space in your mouth for your wisdom teeth to emerge and function properly.
When you don’t have enough space in your mouth for your wisdom teeth to sit properly and comfortably, your wisdom teeth can get ‘impacted’. This means your wisdom teeth grow out at an angle or only partially emerge from the gum line. Left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to more severe problems, such as tooth decay and cause damage to the surrounding teeth.
The best way to determine if you need to get your wisdom teeth extracted is by visiting your dentist. So, if you experience these symptoms, it’s best to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists. They will examine your mouth and come up with a personalised treatment plan to address your pain and discomfort.
However, impacted wisdom teeth don’t always show symptoms. You might not even realise that you have an impacted tooth. That’s why regular dental check-ups are important, as they will help our dentists keep a watchful eye on signs of any general dental problems, prompting early intervention when necessary.
Your comfort and peace of mind are our top priorities at Port Melbourne Dental. That’s why our team is committed to making your wisdom tooth removal process a pain-free and stress-free experience.
We carry out this procedure under a local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort and ease your anxiety. This means you will experience minimum pain while you are in our dental chair.
