Wisdom Teeth Removal in Gosnells

Wisdom tooth extraction GosnellsWisdom teeth usually begin developing in the teenage years and may continue into a person’s late 20s. This third set of molars may never cause any problems or could require removal due to complications. Often they can cause pain and discomfort if they are unable to erupt. Crowding of the other teeth may occur as well.

Unsure If Your Wisdom Teeth Need Treatment?

We will determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned. Not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth removed, but some people may due to the following reasons:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Impaction
  • Cysts or tumours
  • Crowding caused by pressure from the wisdom teeth
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay that is not restorable

Providing Comfortable Extractions

At Tandara Dental Centre, we offer wisdom tooth extractions under gas sedation. If necessary, we can also bring an anaesthetist into our practice for deeper IV sedation. If going to sleep is your top priority while we comfortably remove your wisdom teeth, we can help. In most cases, we remove all four wisdom teeth at the same time.

FAQ

What are impacted wisdom teeth?

A wisdom tooth is considered impacted if there isn’t sufficient room after the second molar for the tooth to emerge or develop normally.

What problems can arise if wisdom teeth aren’t removed?

If not appropriately grown, wisdom teeth can cause additional dental problems including damage to surrounding teeth, jaw damage (cyst growth), inflamed/infected gum tissues, cavities, alignment problems or sinus issues.

What should I take to alleviate the pain following the procedure?

We recommend icing 30 minutes on, 30 minutes off. Pain medication may be prescribed, or we may suggest taking over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
