Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom Tooth Removal at Albany Creek Dental: Ensuring Your Comfort and Health

At Albany Creek Dental, we specialise in the evaluation and removal of wisdom teeth, the last set of molars to develop in your mouth. While some people never experience problems with their wisdom teeth, others may encounter issues due to lack of space in the mouth, leading to pain, infection, and other dental problems. Our experienced dental team is here to assess, advise, and act to prevent or resolve any complications related to wisdom teeth.


Understanding Wisdom Teeth Complications

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, can lead to various issues if there isn’t enough room for them to surface or if they come through in the wrong position. Complications may include:

Crowding or Damage to Adjacent Teeth: Impacted wisdom teeth can push against other teeth, causing misalignment or damage.
Partial Eruption: This can leave an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause infections, leading to pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Teeth that are completely unable to break through the gums can lead to cysts, damaging jawbone and nerves, or lead to infection.


Our Approach to Wisdom Tooth Removal

Evaluation: During your check-ups, we use digital X-rays to monitor the growth and position of your wisdom teeth. We assess potential issues and discuss the best course of action tailored to your specific needs.
Personalised Treatment Plan: If removal is necessary, we’ll provide you with a detailed treatment plan, including information on the procedure, anaesthesia options, and what to expect during recovery.
The Removal Procedure: Wisdom tooth removal can range from a simple extraction to a more complex surgical procedure, depending on the tooth’s position and development stage. We prioritise your comfort and safety, using effective anaesthesia and sedation techniques.
Aftercare and Recovery: Post-procedure care is crucial for a smooth recovery. We’ll guide you through the aftercare process, including pain management, dietary recommendations, and oral hygiene practices to prevent infection and promote healing.


Recovery After Wisdom Tooth Removal

Recovery varies from person to person but generally involves:

Rest: It’s important to rest and avoid strenuous activities for a few days post-surgery to encourage healing.
Pain Management: We’ll recommend or prescribe pain relief medication to help manage any discomfort.
Diet: Stick to soft foods and avoid hot beverages to prevent irritation of the extraction site.
Oral Hygiene: We’ll provide instructions on how to carefully clean the area and maintain oral hygiene without disturbing the healing process.
