If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, removal is the best option.

Warrnambool Dental offers wisdom tooth removal Warrnambool and can treat several health issues related to impacted wisdom teeth, including:

01

Infections

  • When an impacted wisdom tooth starts to push through the gums, an infection can start around the top of the tooth.
  • Infection & inflammation can cause pain, swelling and jaw stiffness.

02

Damage to nearby molars

  • Sacs of fluid called cysts can form around the tooth and may displace the tooth.
  • The cysts can destroy bone and damage other teeth and gums.
  • Damage to nearby molars.

03

Cysts

  • An impacted wisdom tooth may keep pushing against the molars next to it.
  • This often leads to serious damage to both teeth.
04

Crowding

  • A wisdom tooth may push nearby teeth out of their correct position and may cause teeth crowding of front teeth.

Quality is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skilful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”

What are impacted wisdom teeth?

A wisdom tooth is a third molar that normally comes in between the ages of 17 and 25.

Because wisdom teeth are the most posterior of molars (they grow furthest in the back), sometimes there is not enough room for them to grow properly.

When this occurs, they are called impacted wisdom teeth (impacted by other teeth or jawbone).

Impacted wisdom teeth tend to become affected in the front by other teeth or behind by the jawbone.

what causes impacted wisdom teeth pain warrnambool

What causes impacted wisdom teeth pain?

When there’s no space for the wisdom tooth to grow, it gets trapped.

The wisdom tooth may partially erupt therefore being stuck under the gum.

Food particles can collect under this ‘flap’ and start to rot.

Bacteria that are collected under the wisdom tooth flap then cause infection, leading to the swelling of the area and severe wisdom teeth pain.

Also, the wisdom tooth opposite to the flap also hits the swollen flap and causes trauma to the site, causing more wisdom tooth pain.

Impacted wisdom teeth pain can also happen if there is an abscess under the impacted wisdom tooth.

Cysts are another cause. Getting wisdom tooth removal Warrnambool will enable treatment and lessen the pain.

Is wisdom tooth removal necessary?

Oral surgery is a common and effective solution to impacted wisdom teeth.

Teeth that are impacted can become problematic and cause dental problems, such as:

  • Infection of surrounding gums
  • Food packing between teeth and gums, causing tooth decay and affecting other teeth
  • Growth of cysts (fluid-filled tissue) in your gums, which can rupture and cause pain and infection
  • Wisdom teeth pain

Wisdom Teeth Removal Process

wisdom teeth removal process warrnambool

If your wisdom teeth cause discomfort, you may need wisdom teeth removal.

A tooth may be impacted underneath the gums, and leaving it alone can cause other, larger complications such as the ones mentioned earlier.

Here’s what to expect for your wisdom teeth removal:

When you come in for wisdom teeth removal, your Warrnambool dentist will take an X-ray to discern the best way to handle the impacted teeth.

Treatment can be anything from a small incision to help the tooth come out properly to complete extraction and treatment of any related issues.

Depending on your case, your Warrnambool dentist will recommend a treatment plan that works best for you.

If your wisdom teeth need to be pulled, a simple case can be treated then and there with a local anaesthetic.

However, more complicated cases of impacted wisdom teeth may require days of preparation.

Our wisdom tooth removal Warrnambool dental professionals will put you to sleep and can remove your wisdom teeth painlessly.

Sleep Dentistry

What is Inhalation Sedation Dentistry?

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as happy gas, is delivered through a small, non-invasive nose mask where the patient can breathe normally throughout treatment.

It quickly provides a relaxed and comfortable feeling throughout the appointment, giving the sense that time passes quickly.

Patients regain full function only minutes after ceasing inhalation and can resume their day as normal. It is safe to use on most adults and children with little to no side effects.

what is intravenous conscious sleep dentistry warrnambool

What is Intravenous Conscious Sleep Dentistry?

IV sedation is a deep sedative commonly provided during dental treatment for patients who need extra care due to severe phobia, nervousness or a medical condition.

IV Sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and sleeps during treatment. You will have a strong sense of disconnection from the procedure, and time will appear to pass very quickly.

Most people will have no memory of the appointment as if they were asleep during the treatment. A highly experienced specialist in sedation will be present throughout your appointment to ensure the highest levels of safety and comfort for you.

IV Sedation is a popular treatment option for patients who suffer from more severe dental fear or patients that require more extensive or multiple treatments in a single sitting.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars located in the back of your mouth. They usually are the last to erupt.

At what age do people grow wisdom teeth?

Most people grow their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early twenties, but it is also possible to develop them as a pre-teen or as an older adult.

Why do wisdom teeth need to be removed?

If they are impacted and or cause crowding in your mouth, we recommend removing them to avoid damaging the neighbouring teeth.

If they grow in a correct position, are healthy and function properly, it is not necessary to have them extracted.
