Wisdom Teeth Removals In Nundah QLD

If you are looking for an emergency dentist near me or wisdom teeth removals then this section is for you.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last permanent adult teeth that erupt when you reach 17 to 25 years old, although, there are some people who won’t have any wisdom teeth grow at all. 

Wisdom teeth can sometimes cause no problem at all, however, sometimes problems can start to appear when the wisdom teeth start to erupt and they don’t have enough room in the mouth to develop properly. When this occurs, the wisdom teeth will only partially erupt or sometimes won’t even erupt at all.

Typically, we all have 4 wisdom teeth in our mouths, one in each corner of each side of the mouth. If they are positioned correctly, grow in completely, are healthy, and are easy to clean, you will not need to remove them. Nevertheless, this won’t always happen, and when it does, you must deal with it as soon as possible.

When Will My Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Removed

When Will My Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Removed?

One of the main problems with wisdom teeth is that they may not erupt properly, which can be a major problem. It can also be painful and dangerous if they only partially erupt since they can damage roots and even cause bone support issues.

In addition, wisdom teeth can crowd adjacent teeth. In the event your wisdom tooth cannot come out because it lacks space, it can damage nearby teeth and cause them to become crowded. This can create major problems and is one of the main reasons why wisdom teeth may be removed.

If the wisdom tooth doesn’t fully emerge, your dentist will typically suggest you have it removed, and ideally, you should do this at a younger age. If not, the bone and roots are already fully formed, and the recovery process could be much longer.

In addition, if you are experiencing extensive dental decay, gum disease, tumors, cysts, repeated infections, or pain near your wisdom tooth, then you may want to have them extracted. You should get this taken care of right away to avoid future problems.

What Does A Wisdom Tooth Extraction Involve?

In order to numb the area around your wisdom tooth, a local anesthetic will be administered first. A bit of pressure may be felt before the wisdom tooth is removed.

In order to widen the tooth socket, the dentist will start by rock the tooth back and forth. When the wisdom tooth needs to be cut into pieces before it can be removed, a small cut in the gum may be necessary. This is not uncommon to happen.

This extraction procedure can take anywhere from up to 20 minutes long, sometimes longer. 

How Quickly Will I Recover From The Procedure?

Your recovery process after a wisdom tooth extraction can take anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks or more. Your healing all depends on your age, smoking habits, how many extractions were performed at once, and your induvial healing capabilities. Each situation can be different and the healing estimate will be discussed by your dentist.
