Wisdom Tooth Removal at Plaza Dental Centre

Resolve pain and discomfort in Hurstville

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood. However, due to limited space in the jaw, these molars often become impacted, leading to various dental issues. Wisdom tooth removal is a common dental procedure aimed at preventing complications associated with impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth.

The Treatment Process

The treatment process begins with a comprehensive dental examination and, often, X-rays to assess the positioning of the wisdom teeth. When deemed necessary, removal is recommended to prevent problems such as impaction, crowding, pain, and potential damage to adjacent teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth can also contribute to infections and inflammation of the surrounding gums, known as pericoronitis.

The extraction procedure involves local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort. In more complex cases or multiple extractions, general anesthesia may be used. The dentist or oral surgeon carefully removes the wisdom teeth, addressing any impaction or misalignment. Postoperative care includes proper wound management and pain control.

Fillings are crucial for preserving tooth function and preventing more extensive dental issues. Left untreated, cavities can lead to severe pain, infections, and even tooth loss.

While not all individuals require wisdom tooth removal, the procedure is often recommended to: proactively address potential complications and maintain overall oral health. Early intervention reduces the risk of discomfort, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth, making wisdom tooth removal a preventive measure for long-term dental well-being.
