Wisdom Teeth Removal Double Bay

Impacted Molars? Call Our Family Dentist!

Wisdome Teeth Removal Double BayAlthough wisdom teeth begin forming at a very young age, the majority of their formation takes place during the teen years. Some teens experience wisdom tooth pain before they graduate, while other individuals haven’t reached full tooth development until their late 20s. As such, the window for wisdom tooth removal surgery is quite broad.

Keeping You Comfortable

During any oral surgery— especially wisdom tooth removal—we know it’s normal for our patients to feel anxious. Thanks to dental sedation we’re able to complete your procedure while you sit back and relax. Depending on the strength of sedative that’s used, you may find that you feel like taking a nap or not remember the extraction at all.

When to Remove a Wisdom Tooth

The reason why most people have their wisdom teeth extracted is that of the location of the tooth. As the third molars in the mouth, they often lack proper space to erupt in full alignment with other teeth. Because of such positioning, they’re difficult to clean and more prone to the following:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease (periodontitis)
  • Impaction against other teeth
  • Pain and swelling
  • Crowding and tooth movement throughout the mouth
  • Partial eruption

Planning for Your Oral Surgery

On the day of your wisdom tooth removal, you’ll want to have someone accompany you to the appointment so that they can drive you home as the sedative wears off. Be sure to keep your kitchen stocked with soft foods to eat as you heal, such as pudding and mashed potatoes.
