Buderim Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars. They typically erupt in your mid to late teens. Many people begin to experience issues, such as pain or swelling, when their wisdom teeth start to erupt. An impacted wisdom tooth, or a wisdom tooth that has not managed to break the surface of your gums, can also cause problems.

Wisdom teeth removal becomes necessary when you start to experience pain, swelling, or other oral issues caused by any wisdom teeth in your mouth. Although the experience itself is painful, Buderim Dental Surgery practices modern dental methods that make the removal of wisdom teeth simple, effective, and pain-free!

If you have a difficult time brushing near your wisdom teeth or feel that this area is harder than the rest of your mouth, you may want to have the tooth evaluated by Buderim Dental Surgery’s experienced team.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth may not grow in properly and become impacted, which means they do not break through the gum tissue. Food and plaque can build up around the roots of impacted wisdom teeth, causing infection, gum disease, cysts, and even tumors. If an impacted wisdom tooth is left untreated, it could damage the surrounding teeth or cause a cyst or tumor to form.

The above mentioned problems are not common among people with healthy third molars. However, you should be aware of any swelling, pain, discoloration, foul odor in your mouth, changes in your bite, or trouble chewing that could signal a problem with a wisdom tooth.

If you are experiencing any of these common problems that can be caused by wisdom teeth, contact Buderim Dental Surgery today, or book your appointment here.

Modern Dental Practices for Wisdom Tooth Removal

Most people do not have problems with their wisdom teeth. If these molars erupt without difficulty, Buderim Dental Surgery’s dentist may recommend simply watching the tooth to make sure it doesn’t cause a problem. However, if a wisdom tooth is partially visible and it’s difficult to clean properly, you may need to have it extracted. So ask us about your specific situation at your next check-up.

There are three ways to remove wisdom teeth:

1. Extraction 

The dentist uses special forceps to grasp the tooth and gently wiggle it side-to-side until it loosens from its socket. Then, a sharp tool is used to cut the tooth loose from its surrounding gum tissue and bone, after which it’s removed from your mouth. The surgical wound is closed with stitches or glue. 

2. Surgical exposure

In this case, incisions along the inside of your cheek allow access to loosen and remove any tissue that may be blocking the wisdom tooth’s path.

3. Intraoral

One of two incisions is made inside your mouth to remove mature teeth that are very difficult to access, or if you have a cyst, tumor, or infection near it. The other incision may also go under the lip directly below the affected area for added exposure.

Why Do We Need to Have Them Removed?

If you don’t have enough space in your mouth for these third molars, wisdom teeth can crowd or even block your other teeth. You also risk having damage and decay occur on the adjacent second molars because food and bacteria may build up around their roots. Impacted wisdom teeth can contribute to gum disease and cysts; impactions within the jawbone can cause pain and swelling as well as joint problems if infection occurs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Wisdom Teeth

Your wisdom teeth are usually your last to erupt—third molars that appear very gradually between the ages of 17 and 25 years. However, everyone has different timing! Not every person gets them so sometimes they fail to grow in, or they may become impacted (stuck). Wisdom teeth often come in at an angle instead of straight up and down. So it is possible for them not to come through your gums—which means you don't have wisdom teeth!

If you don't have enough space in your mouth for these third molars, wisdom teeth can crowd or even block your other teeth. You also risk having damage and decay occur on the adjacent second molars because food and bacteria may build up around their roots. Impacted wisdom teeth can contribute to gum disease and cysts; impactions within the jawbone can cause pain and swelling as well as joint problems if infection occurs.

Most people do not have problems with their wisdom teeth.
