Wisdom Teeth Mount Druitt

Surgery and removal of impacted wisdom teeth

Wisdom Teeth Mount Druitt

For some people, wisdom teeth may grow in smoothly – or not at all. For others, wisdom teeth can show up late and cause problems. The removal of impacted wisdom teeth avoids the risks of infection, gum disease and cysts.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Most people possess three permanent molars in each quadrant of the mouth. These progressively develop over childhood. The wisdom teeth are the third molars to appear and are located at the very back of the mouth. The nickname ‘wisdom teeth’ comes from the idea that wisdom comes with age.

When Do Wisdom Teeth Appear?

The development for the first molars begins at around six years of age. At the age of twelve, the second molars begin to develop. Between the age of eighteen and twenty, the third ‘wisdom’ molars begin their development. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in our mouth and are just as useful as our other teeth if developed properly with a healthy gum tissue surrounding them.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

The term ‘impaction’ refers to when a person’s wisdom teeth are unable to erupt (appear) properly in their mouth. However, not all teeth that have failed to erupt are impacted. Given enough time, the teeth may evolve properly. In order to determine if your teeth are impacted or not, a dentist will examine your mouth and take an x-ray of your jaw.

Infection, gum disease damage to the second molars and the formation of a cyst or tumour from the tooth follicle are some of the problems that may occur as a result of impacted wisdom teeth. In many cases, dentists recommend the removal of impacted wisdom teeth to eliminate future complications.

When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Taken Out?

If wisdom teeth are impacted, early removal is most effective as it helps prevent problems, such as an impacted tooth destroying a second molar. We generally suggest removal of wisdom teeth be when the roots are three-quarters developed. This usually occurs during adolescence. We strive to prevent third molar impaction, as it is the most common medical developmental disorder.

What Is Meant By 'Dry Socket'?

After a wisdom tooth is removed, a large hole known as a socket is left where the tooth was. During the healing process, a blood clot naturally forms in this hole which is designed to help heal the wound. It is important to preserve this blood clot so the healing process can occur. If this blood clot becomes dislodged this is a ‘dry socket’ which can prevent the natural healing process and cause infection.

Food can get caught in the wisdom tooth socket, causing infection. It is important to follow our post-surgery instructions immediately after surgery. This includes oral hygiene, diet and in some cases recommended or prescribed medications.

How Much Does A Wisdom Tooth Removal Cost?

The costs of a wisdom tooth removal can vary greatly depending on how many teeth need to be removed, how developed they are and the extent of the removal procedure. However, affordability is always at the front of our mind and we offer interest-free payment plans for those more complex procedures.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What Are Wisdom Teeth?

    Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically emerge in the late teenage years or early twenties. They can cause problems such as overcrowding, impaction, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth and may need to be removed.

    When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

    Wisdom teeth may need to be removed if they are causing problems or are at risk of causing problems in the future. Some signs that may indicate wisdom teeth removal is necessary to include pain, swelling, difficulty opening your mouth, infection, gum disease, decay or damage to adjacent teeth, or cysts or tumors.

    What Happens During a Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure?

    The wisdom teeth removal procedure involves numbing the area with local anesthesia, making an incision in the gum, removing any bone blocking the tooth, and extracting the tooth. If the tooth is impacted, the dentist may need to cut it into pieces to remove it. After removing the tooth, the dentist will clean the socket and may place sutures.

    How Long Does it Take to Recover After Wisdom Teeth Removal?

    The recovery time after wisdom teeth removal can vary depending on the individual and the complexity of the extraction. Generally, it takes about 1-2 weeks to recover fully. During this time, you should avoid strenuous activities, eat soft foods, and keep the area clean to prevent infection.

    What Should I Expect After My Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure?

    After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. Following your dentist’s instructions is important to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. You should also rest and take it easy for a few days, eat soft foods, and avoid smoking, alcohol, and using straws for several days after the procedure.
