Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are so called because they are the last teeth to come in-usually between ages 17 and 30 – presumably the age when a person gains maturity and wisdom.

What problems can they cause?

Wisdom teeth that are healthy and properly positioned can be an asset. However, in most cases wisdom teeth remain impacted, trapped beneath the gum and bone and against the tooth in front. They may erupt only partly, often because other teeth crowd the jaw. Partially erupted teeth may tilt sideways and cause damage to adjacent teeth or become difficult to clean and develop gum infection or decay.

After examining your mouth and taking X-rays, we can evaluate your wisdom teeth and discuss whether or not they should be removed. Wisdom teeth may also have to be removed to make room for tooth movement during orthodontic treatment.

How are they removed?

You will be given local anaesthetic and may have the option for nitrous oxide (happy gas) if you require. After the teeth have been removed you may have stitches and we talk you through home care, reviewing your healing a few days later.

Book an appointment today for an xray and consultation regarding your wisdom teeth. If they are causing you pain please let our receptionists know so we can get you in as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can book online.
