Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth Removal, Melbourne

It’s common to develop a third set of molars later on in life, known as wisdom teeth. This usually occurs around the age of 17-21 and they appear further back in the mouth, compared to our other teeth. These sharp teeth were necessary to accommodate our ancestors’ diet, though nowadays, wisdom teeth are not always necessary and can actually lead to more problems.

Sometimes if wisdom teeth are impacted, they may require removal to avoid complications with adjacent teeth or infection in the jaws. Wisdom teeth can cause us pain or can cause your mouth to become crowded, often getting in the way of other teeth and causing them to move or grow at an angle.

If your wisdom teeth are developing – or have already developed – visit us to talk about wisdom teeth removal at our Melbourne dental studio. If you’re experiencing pain in the mouth and are unsure why, feel free to book an appointment for toothache treatment so we can get to the root of the problem.

Do you need to have your wisdom teeth removed?

Our dental services include the removal of wisdom teeth, and the dedicated dentists at Brunswick East Dental Studio will thoroughly examine your mouth and take an X-ray to determine whether removal is necessary. Some reasons for removal include:

  • Damage to other teeth – when your wisdom teeth are pushing against other teeth, damaging or moving them around
  • Oral pain or inflamed gums
  • Damage to the jaw – if cysts have formed around your wisdom teeth, this can be harmful to the jaw
  • Sinus complications – from time-to-time, wisdom teeth can affect the sinuses and can lead to congestion issues
  • Cavities – when bacteria attacks the teeth, cavities can form. We may be able to address this issue with wisdom teeth removal or tooth fillings
