Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that usually develop in our late teens or early twenties. When these teeth grow healthy and properly aligned, they can be a valuable asset. But, more often, they grow misaligned and force you to visit a dental clinic. For wisdom tooth removal in Reservoir, you can come to Prime Dental Group. With a team of experienced dentists, we have been providing wisdom tooth extraction to the patients across Reservoir and the surrounding suburbs for many years now.
Why Should You Get Wisdom Tooth Removal?
When wisdom teeth are misaligned – positioning themselves horizontally, angled inward or outward, or angled towards or away from the second molars, they present potential problems. Teeth can get crowded, adjacent teeth can be damaged or jawbone or nerves can be affected due to the poor alignment of wisdom teeth. In addition, they also become more vulnerable to decay by trapping debris and plaque. That is why it is important to get your impacted wisdom tooth removed as quickly as possible.
Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure:
During your visit to our dental clinic near Reservoir, we will carry out a thorough assessment of your teeth to determine its position. Then, we will give you an injection of anaesthetic to numb the tooth in question and the surrounding area. Once you start feeling the numbness, we will make an incision in the gum to access the tooth. If removing the tooth in full seems complicated, we break down the tooth into smaller parts. Once the entire tooth has been removed, stiches will be made if required.
