Why Should You Get Wisdom Tooth Removal?
Wisdom teeth grow through the gums during the late teens or early twenties. For some people, there won’t be enough space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow properly. Due to lack of space, they emerge at an odd angle or get stuck, resulting in impaction. Wisdom teeth that haven’t grown fully or got impacted will lead to a number of dental problems such as tooth decay, gum diseases, infection, cyst formation and many more. The only way to stay away from these problems is to opt for wisdom tooth removal.
Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure:
Before we begin the process, our Bulleen dentists will clearly explain the procedure to you. Once you become aware of the tooth removal procedure, we will give you a local anaesthetic injection to numb the area around the tooth. A small cut will be made on the gum to gain access to the tooth. It may also be broken down into smaller pieces to ensure easy removal. The entire process takes around 20 minutes or sometimes longer depending on the position and depth of the wisdom tooth.
Signs For Wisdom Tooth Removal:
- Severe pain around the backside of your mouth
- Fluid filled sacs or cysts
- Repeated infection of tissue near the wisdom tooth
- Gum disease
- Damage to adjacent teeth
- Extensive tooth decay
