Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to develop in your jaws. Most times, there won’t be adequate space for them to erupt fully, and so they become impacted. If you have impacted wisdom tooth, you can come to Prime Dental Group to get wisdom tooth removal. As a leading dental clinic near Northcote, we have experienced dentists in the industry who can perform the procedure completely pain-free.

Why Should You Get Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Oftentimes, wisdom tooth grows at an angle and gets fully or partially trapped under the gum tissue or in the jawbone. This can cause a wide range of problems such as severe pain at the back of the mouth, foods getting trapped around your wisdom tooth, development of tooth decay, gum diseases and cyst. That’s why our dentist near Northcote recommends wisdom tooth removal as a preventive measure and help reducing your risk for future infection and cavities.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure:

During the visit to our Northcote dental clinic, we will assess the health of your wisdom teeth and take X-rays if required. Before we begin with the procedure, we will give you an injection of local anaesthesia to numb the area to be treated. Once you feel the numbness around teeth and gums, we will expose the impacted wisdom tooth with incision for a quick access. Then, the tooth will be loosened and lifted from the sockets. Finally, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and stiches will be placed.
