Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth often cause problems and you may require wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to emerge into the mouth and commonly get stuck (impacted) due to the lack of space. Wisdom teeth often appear around the ages of 18-25 years and can lead a range of problems.
Potential Problems with Wisdom Teeth
- Recurrent episodes of pain and infection
- Food impaction and decay in wisdom teeth
- Food impaction and decay in adjacent molars
- Gingivitis and gum disease
- Dental cysts and other diseases
- Crowding of adjacent teeth
Do I Need Wisdom Teeth Removal?
If you are experiencing problems with your wisdom teeth, then surgery may be necessary. However, even if you are not having problems, it is still advisable to speak with your dentists or specialist to ensure no disease process is overlooked. If not correctly evaluated, wisdom teeth will often jeopardise the adjacent molars and surrounding tissues. Prevention is far better than cure.

Wisdom teeth removal is more than simply removing a tooth. The surgeon must consider the patient’s medical well-being, both before and after the surgery. All aspects of treatment should be considered including an assessment of your medical health, the level of anaesthesia required, the alternative surgical techniques, and of course the post-operative care.
Furthermore, the removal of your wisdom teeth can be a complex procedure with potential risks and complications. Unfortunately, some of these risks can be permanent and have long lasting effects. Feel confident that your surgeon has the ability to evaluate and care for your needs throughout the entire process.
