Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the jaw to erupt usually around the late teens or early 20s. There are normally two wisdom teeth in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw.

Wisdom teeth infections are very commonly seen in our dental clinic. Wisdom teeth infections may occur if your wisdom tooth is impacted, (growing at an angle) and difficult to clean. When the teeth are at an angle, it may be well-positioned for a food trap and bacteria to fester. If you notice your wisdom teeth are growing at an angle, it’s important to have them checked out as soon as possible to prevent a wisdom tooth infection.

  • Reddened, inflamed gum alongside the wisdom tooth.
  • Pain and fever.
  • Pus coming from the gum line.
  • Superficial or deep swelling and infections.
  • Sore lymph glands under the jaw.
  • Difficulty swallowing or restricted mouth opening.

People with compromised immune systems can suffer serious complications from wisdom tooth infections. Wisdom teeth infections may recur so it is best to have it checked out when you come in.

Wisdom tooth extraction, where required, is best performed sooner rather than later. Our dentists are experienced in wisdom teeth removals. Wisdom teeth extractions can be performed in the dental chair under local anaesthetic or in the hospital under general anaesthetic if required, depending on the complexity of the situation.

Your mouth may be tender, after the removal of the wisdom teeth as your body recovers and heals.

When impacted wisdom teeth are left untreated, it may cause decay of not only the wisdom tooth but the neighbouring tooth as well. This may eventually lead to more complex and expensive treatment such as root canal treatment or extraction of the neighbouring tooth.

If you think your wisdom teeth are coming through, and are not sure if they need removal, call us for a consultation today.
