Wisdom Teeth Removal Caboolture
At Greenland Dental, we understand that the eruption of wisdom teeth can be a painful and uncomfortable experience. As we get older and our wisdom teeth emerge, our oral health often becomes more sensitive. Hence, if the wisdom teeth do not grow properly or protrude at an angle, they can become impacted and disturb the rest of the mouth.
Therefore, our professional dentists in Caboolture provide premium wisdom tooth extraction services to ensure your smile remains in perfect condition. Restore the functionality of your oral health with wisdom tooth removal services from our team at Greenland Dental.
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth usually erupt during late adolescence or early adulthood and can be referred to as our third set of molars. Some people have no complications with the eruption of their wisdom teeth, while others experience severe pain and discomfort.
Wisdom teeth are commonly removed because they are prone to complications such as decay, infection, impactions, and gum disease. Patients who do not have wisdom teeth removed are more likely to develop cysts, tumours, and infections in their third molars. At Greenland Dental, that’s why we aim to restore the functional capacity of your mouth with high-quality wisdom tooth removal services. Our team has years of experience in dental services and will first identify and understand the severity of your wisdom teeth issues and recommend extraction or treatment accordingly.
When To Remove Your Wisdom Teeth?
Some people may need wisdom teeth removed if they become impacted or infected, but wisdom teeth extractions are often done for other reasons - such as overcrowding of teeth and wisdom tooth pain. It is essential that you understand when wisdom tooth removal services are needed to ensure your oral health remains in optimal condition. Waiting too long for the appropriate treatment can be detrimental to the functionality of your teeth and gums.
At Greenland Dental, we’ll examine your oral health to determine whether you require wisdom tooth extraction services. Usually, if your teeth are severely misaligned or growing at an angle, then the issue can no longer be ignored, and a surgical removal must be organised.
While impacted wisdom teeth don’t always cause symptoms, the growth of wisdom teeth may damage or infect other teeth and cause further dental issues. Some signs that may suggest your wisdom teeth are impacted include:
Red and swollen gums
Tender and bleeding gums
Jaw pain or swelling around the jaw
Increased sensitivity in the mouth
Difficulty opening your mouth, chewing, and speaking
Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure
Wisdom tooth removal is typically done when one of our dentists determines there is a need to do so. If your wisdom teeth are suitable for extraction, our friendly dentists will walk you through the procedure including what to expect for recovery and maintenance.
The best way to protect your mouth is by getting your wisdom teeth treated early. The earlier you get it done if recommended to do so, the simpler the wisdom tooth removal procedure typically is.
Our dentists will administer anaesthesia – usually around the gums in where your wisdom teeth are located. This will ensure you don’t feel anything throughout the procedure.
Once your tooth and gums are numb, we will make a small incision below the impacted area. This will allow us to remove your wisdom teeth safely.
If your wisdom tooth is quite sturdy and difficult to remove, it may be cut into pieces for easier extraction.
You will only feel pressure in the area as your wisdom tooth is safely removed.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction Recovery
After your wisdom tooth removal procedure, follow your dentist's post-operative care instructions closely. At Greenland Dental, we recommend cleaning your mouth several times a day with salt water rinses that prevent infection. We also recommend you don’t eat any hard food items for five days after the procedure.
Some common factors that influence how quickly you are expected to recover from a wisdom teeth removal procedure include:
General health – wisdom tooth extraction recovery times may vary among individuals due to differences in their general health.
Smoking status – the wisdom teeth recovery process can be influenced by whether a patient smokes as it can severely hinder a person’s healing capabilities. In fact, patients who smoke are about twice as likely to have post-operative pain after surgery than those who do not.
If you find that pain from your wisdom teeth removal process does not ease after two weeks, please book an appointment with our dentists right away. We will evaluate your oral health to ensure your wisdom teeth wounds are healing correctly. For more information on the recovery process, contact us today.
