Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Removed?

There are usually four wisdom teeth present: two in the lower jaw, and two in the upper. These teeth can commonly become impacted, where the tooth doesn’t fully grow through the gum into a proper position. This abnormality can result in problems with infection, decay, erosion, cysts and crowding.

If not treated, wisdom teeth can develop an infection or decay, which can damage neighbouring teeth. Wisdom teeth that fail to erupt can form cysts and endanger the bones and teeth.

What to Expect

First, we’ll evaluate your oral health to ensure that you require removal. Once determined that it’s appropriate, we’ll get started by removing the teeth, then cleansing the gum and closing the gap. It is a relatively simple procedure, and our team is well-versed in gentle removal.

Local anaesthetic is used so that you don’t feel any pain. Sedation options are also available if you’d like to feel more relaxed or limit your memories of the procedure. When general anaesthetic is required, we can complete treatment in hospital.

Post-removal, you may experience some swelling and discomfort for up to a week. We can prescribe medication that will help ease any pain. Soft foods are best so that you don’t need to open your mouth wide to eat and won’t have to chew.

Are There Any Risks?

Any operation has risks. To prevent infection, we’ll give you aftercare instructions and when necessary, an antibiotic. The nerves around the wisdom teeth can cause numbness or tingling in the mouth and face, which will subside. We’ll advise you on exactly what you can expect afterward before continuing with the procedure.
