Wisdom Teeth Removal


Wisdom Teeth Removal Melbourne North West


Wisdom Teeth Removal in Melbourne Dental Couture
Wisdom teeth are the molars in the far back of each side of your mouth and grow in on the top and bottom. These are the last of the molars to grow in and may not break through the gums until early adulthood. Many people will not experience problems with their wisdom teeth, but those who do may experience more than pain. Our dentists at Dental Couture at Melbourne North West are skilled at identifying problematic wisdom teeth and can help determine if yours will be a problem. And if wisdom teeth are already causing problems, we can safely remove them while mitigating side effects.

When to Have Wisdom Teeth Removed


Many people prefer to have their wisdom teeth removed before they cause problems, but it is not always necessary. These molars can become a problem if they grow in late and your jaw space is already taken up by your other teeth. Wisdom teeth that are partially erupted are susceptible to cavities under the gumline that are difficult to treat. Sometimes wisdom teeth are forced to grow in crooked or even sideways and this can cause them to push on your other teeth leading to crooked or even cracked teeth.

When left untreated, wisdom teeth that come in sideways may never erupt through the gums. As they continue to shift, they can put pressure on all of your teeth and create the need for braces or dental surgery to remove the wisdom teeth. If the wisdom teeth haven’t erupted, you may never know the reason for damage to your other teeth. Fortunately, with regular dental checkups or exams, we can detect problematic wisdom teeth early and remove them to prevent future problems.

Symptoms of Problem Wisdom Teeth


When wisdom teeth do not erupt, you might experience jaw pain or toothaches in the area, yet find no cavities. They can cause once straight teeth to shift out of place and lead to pain that radiates throughout the face. If your wisdom teeth only partially erupt, they may cause infection because they are difficult to clean. They can also lead to inflamed and swollen gums that may subside before the pain returns again.

Since they are located in the far back of the mouth, many people miss brushing them and cannot floss between the wisdom tooth and the molar next to it, which can lead to gum infection or tooth decay. Waiting too long for removal will cause more pain and possible damage to the teeth, making them more difficult to remove. The following are signs and symptoms that your wisdom teeth may need removal:

Impaction or wisdom teeth that cannot break through the gums

Recurring infections near the back of the mouth

As a preventive treatment before braces or Invisalign

We recommend having wisdom teeth removed at an earlier age when the bones are not finished growing, making the teeth easier to remove with quicker healing. For this reason, many patients choose early removal to prevent future problems. Elderly people may have a difficult time getting wisdom teeth removed as the jawbone is more fragile and healing may be prolonged.

Wisdom Teeth Removal for Teenagers


The teenage years are the ideal time to remove wisdom teeth. During this time, the teeth and jawbone are still growing and the bone is softer. Young people less than 20 years of age recover from surgery and wisdom teeth removal quicker than adults and so experience fewer side effects and discomfort.

We work with young patients with regular dental checkups and examinations. Our dentists are experienced with developing wisdom teeth and know what to watch for, including the symptoms of problematic wisdom teeth. With early intervention, we can prevent discomfort and problems that may occur later on and, in some cases, even avoid the need for braces.

How are Wisdom Teeth Removed?


Some wisdom teeth are extracted like other molars, however, the position in the mouth can make it more uncomfortable as it is a difficult area to reach. If wisdom teeth are impacted or still under the gum, they can often still be extracted if they are not interfering with other teeth. More complicated situations may require oral surgery.

As said, it is always best to remove them when young, however, anyone can have them removed. If you are over 20 and your wisdom teeth have become problematic, we will do a full dental examination to find their position and determine the problem. Once the problem is diagnosed, we can decide on the best method to remove your wisdom teeth and provide relief.

Side Effects of Wisdom Teeth Removal


The side effects of having your wisdom teeth removed will depend upon your age, your level of health and of course the position of your wisdom teeth. As said, teenagers recover quicker than older adults and simple extractions are easier to recover from than oral surgery.

While recovery times vary, the average time is three to four days and some patients can return to work in a day or two. Dental or oral surgery may take 1-2 weeks for recovery but many patients are able to resume their daily routines sooner. Your dentist will provide customised instructions for after-care and tips to lower the risk of a bacterial infection or dry socket.

Wisdom Teeth Removal for Your Comfort


Your dentist will do a full dental examination before removing your wisdom teeth so they have all the information necessary to make sure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. Most wisdom teeth can be extracted in one visit and others may require dental surgery to remove teeth that are impacted under other molars. The following are options that help with wisdom teeth removal:

Local anaesthesia

helps numb the wisdom tooth and the surrounding area. You will be awake and able to communicate with your dentist to ensure you are comfortable during your treatment.

Sedation dentistry

is an option for patients who require more extensive treatment or who prefer to have all wisdom teeth removed in the same visit. You will still receive a local anaesthetic along with medication to help you relax.
