Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in your jaws and, for many people, they come through normally and do not cause any problems. However, often there won’t be enough space for them to erupt into the correct position like the other teeth in your mouth. This may cause these teeth erupt in abnormal position or be partially erupted or completely impacted under the bone or gums. In these conditions, in can get infected and the Dentist may recommend the wisdom tooth to be removed if you have the following:
Preparing for Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom tooth that is fully erupted normally in the mouth may be removed by a General Dentist. However, in many cases, these teeth are impacted or having curved roots and may be very close to the nerve. In these cases, it is best to be removed by a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
An X-ray or a scan will be taken before to assess the position of the impacted tooth and the complexity of the case. This will help your oral surgeon to choose the best way to remove the infected tooth. Usually, wisdom tooth removal is a simple procedure that your oral surgeon will be able to do at the dental clinic under local anaesthesia.
At Go Dental Clinic, our expert team of oral surgeons will discuss the treatment plan and being fully informed will help you feel more at ease during the procedure.
