Wisdom Teeth Removal in Grange
Wisdom teeth are known for causing oral health problems. As the last molars to emerge in your jaw, there is often not enough room to accommodate them, causing them to erupt at an angle below the jawline, damaging adjacent teeth.
Wisdom teeth removal at Grange Dental Care is a common dental procedure that immediately alleviates any discomfort and the potential for oral health complications.
Why Do I Need Wisdom Tooth Extractions at Grange Dental Care?
If a wisdom tooth only partially erupts, the space between the tooth and the gum can collect food debris and bacteria, increasing your risk of gum disease and infection. Additionally, because wisdom teeth are often hard to clean properly, they are at high risk of decay.
A lack of space in the jaw puts pressure on your other teeth causing crowding and can reverse any repair made by teeth straightening treatments.
Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Some of the symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth include discomfort, tender gums, a swollen jaw, bad breath, and difficulty opening and closing your mouth.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms you may need wisdom teeth removal at Grange Dental Care.
Simple vs. Complex Tooth Extraction
There are two methods of tooth extraction, depending on the condition of your wisdom tooth. If the tooth is partially or fully erupted, a simple extraction with local anaesthetic is required. The tooth is loosened using a dental lifter and removed with forceps.
A complex tooth extraction surgery is needed for wisdom teeth that have not erupted, sit close to a nerve, or for people with a complex medical history.
In these cases, you may need to be placed under general anaesthetic and the dentist makes an incision in the gum to access the tooth. Recovery is longer in these cases.
