Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that are located at the back of your mouth. They often create dental issues for many people. This includes not having enough space for growth and development, growth in the incorrect direction, and much more. Due to that, it starts impacting other teeth, and the only option that dentists have is to remove it to save the other teeth.
Bay Street Dental Group offers advanced services for wisdom teeth removal in Melbourne. We will examine your wisdom teeth and see whether the removal is required to give you better dental health and relief. If we find that it damages your teeth structure or creates the infection, we will remove it safely.
Why Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Important?
Wisdom teeth development usually happens between the ages of 18 to 25, and sometimes, you can only spot its growth on x-rays. Wisdom teeth cause four types of issues to your mouth.
- The wisdom tooth develops in the wrong angle, presses other teeth, and possibly damages them.
- Your wisdom teeth do not develop in the normal way and can get trapped in your gums or jawbones. It is painful and needs the removal of the teeth for the relief.
- Your jaw has not enough room for an additional set of molars.
- You experience gum disease or cavities around the wisdom teeth.
The Treatment Procedure
At our clinic, we examine your wisdom tooth using x-rays. This helps us to confirm the need of removal as well as the difficulty level of the teeth removal. While many wisdom teeth can be removed by applying local anaesthesia, some wisdom teeth need surgical extraction at our clinic to ensure the safe removal and the protection of other teeth.
After the removal of the wisdom tooth, our dentists may put sutures on your gum for quick healing. As a leading clinic for wisdom tooth removal in Port Melbourne, we recommend the patients to make a follow-up visit after a week of the extraction.
What To Expect After The Wisdom Teeth Removal
You may experience some swelling on your face, discomfort, and pain for a few days after the removal. You can speak with our dentists and use normal painkillers for relief from the pain.
We recommend that our patients do not eat or drink during the first six hours after the teeth removal. Our dentists may also give you some advice on looking after your gums and teeth after the procedure.
