For some lucky people, wisdom teeth do not present a problem, either because they have sufficient room in their mouth to accommodate the extra teeth or because they never develop them at all. Unfortunately for others, wisdom teeth can cause a host of problems, becoming impacted or wedged and causing discomfort and pain that can only be treated with wisdom teeth surgery. We are able to provide specialist wisdom teeth removal in Melbourne.
Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can affect adjacent teeth, and potentially have an impact on the jaw and nerves. They are also more likely to be affected by decay and gum disease as their positioning makes thorough cleaning more difficult and flossing very awkward.
Wisdom teeth usually develop during an individual’s late teens to mid-twenties. If they become impacted, infection and inflammation can follow, resulting in pain, swollen gums, jaw stiffness, and other symptoms. While antibiotics can be prescribed to fight any infection that may occur, it is worth considering using one of our skilled dentists to perform an affordable wisdom teeth removal as the best course of action for long-term benefits.
As part of our process, we will take an x-ray of your mouth to gain a clearer picture of the position of your teeth. We will then undertake an analysis of the most appropriate procedures to assist you. All our work will be undertaken in consultation and collaboration with you. We understand that it is an important decision for you and we want to make sure you have the best information available.
