Wisdom Teeth Removal Burwood - Burwood Dental Care

Wisdom teeth are a common dental problem that many people experience. They are the last teeth to grow in the mouth and often don’t grow in correctly, which can cause a wide range of problems for the individual. These problems include inflammation of the gums and jaw, poorly aligned teeth, and pain in the mouth. In some cases, wisdom teeth need to be removed for the proper functioning of the mouth.

This is also why here at Burwood Dental Care, we offer wisdom teeth removal services in Burwood VIC. Our goal is to provide such services in a safe, comfortable, and gentle manner.

Wisdom teeth can cause several problems. If wisdom teeth don’t come out when they’re supposed to-either because they never develop correctly or because they grow at the wrong time-they can crowd your mouth and make it difficult to chew food. They may also break through the bone surrounding them and become trapped beneath your gums, leading to infection. And whether or not wisdom teeth affect nearby healthy teeth will lead to an overcrowded mouth and lead to chewing food issues properly.

Another problem is that wisdom teeth can come in at any time. This means that if they erupt while you’re still growing, they may fuse with the wisdom tooth next door to them and add pressure to your existing teeth. This can lead to crowding, decay, and gum disease, which could ruin your oral health.

Mild pain caused by wisdom teeth may be managed with simple painkillers such as paracetamol.

Infected wisdom teeth may require antibiotics and rinse with hot, salty water or mouthwash containing chlorhexidine.

If the wisdom tooth dentin has partially erupted in certain cases, removing the gum lying over, it can be possible (operculectomy).

There are cases where the root of your tooth lies close to the nerve that supplies feeling to your lower lip, making just the crown of the tooth (coronectomy) mandatory.

Getting your wisdom teeth removed is never a pleasant experience, but with a bit of preparation and a good dentist, it doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience, either. Even though it’s not as common as it used to be, wisdom teeth removal is still done in many homes and offices across the country every day. To help you prepare for your upcoming visit, here’s a brief overview of what to expect during a typical wisdom teeth removal procedure…

The procedure is typically done under general anesthesia to prevent any discomfort during the process. After numbing your mouth with an injection, we will use a small needle to numb one side of your mouth at a time. The incisions are tiny, and you will not feel them during the procedure.

You should expect a very short period of recovery from this procedure. Don’t eat hard foods for about 8 hours after the procedure. You may take pain medicine to ease discomfort during this time. You can brush your teeth right away after the procedure. Once you start feeling better, you can visit us in 6 to 8 weeks for a checkup appointment and dental cleaning.

Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure that adults undergo to help alleviate any future dental health issues. Though the practice is typically common and relatively straightforward, it can still be a little confusing to ensure you receive the best possible care and understand what the procedure may cost.

According to the 2017 national dental fee survey, a simple removal using local anaesthetic for a single wisdom tooth can cost around $350 in Australia. And up to $500 for more complex procedures.

It is important to remember that these are just estimates and that the actual cost will differ depending on the issues discussed. In addition, you need to consider the complexity of the surgery, the specialist performing the procedure, as well as your insurance coverage.
