Most people develop a third set of molars between the ages of 17 and 25. If they grow straight and healthy, they could be a valuable asset, but often they get impacted or misaligned, requiring wisdom tooth removal. If you are looking for a dental clinic near Ivanhoe to get your wisdom tooth extracted, you can count on Prime Dental Group. Having been in the industry for many years and with a team of experienced dentists, we have been providing world-class dental treatments to the patients across Ivanhoe and the surrounding suburbs at the most competitive prices.

Why Should You Get Wisdom Tooth Removal?

If there is not enough room for the wisdom tooth in your jaw or if they emerge in the wrong position, they can become crowded or impacted. This leads to a number of oral issues as it becomes difficult to clean with a toothbrush or to floss properly. This is why you should get your impacted wisdom tooth extracted.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure:

During your first visit to our dental clinic in Ivanhoe, we will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth. If required, X-Rays will also be taken to determine the position and angle of the tooth. Then, local anaesthesia will be given to numb the area surrounding the tooth in question. Our dentist will rock the tooth to and fro to widen the socket before removing the tooth. If the tooth has not emerged out, a small incision will be made. Sometimes, the tooth will be cut into smaller parts to make it easier for removal through the opening.

  • Severe pain around the backside of your mouth
