Wisdom Teeth Removal Melbourne

Wisdom teeth cause a lot of trouble for many people and the best option we recommend at Wisdom dental Emergency is to have them removed. Often the problem associated with wisdom teeth is impaction. This happens when the tooth tries to push through the jaw to create space for itself but that ends up pushing the other teeth causing pain and discomfort. Other reasons for wisdom teeth removal Melbourne are tooth decay, injury causing them to break. Most of the impaction cases we deal with are for people in their middle teens and early twenties. This is the time when most people have their wisdom teeth coming up and causing trouble. We strongly advise that when someone feels their wisdom teeth starting to develop at the back of the mouth, they should seek an appointment at Wisdom Dental Emergency for wisdom teeth removal Melbourne.

How Wisdom Teeth are Extracted

Wisdom Dental Emergency strives to ensure the comfort of our patients.

Sometimes the extraction is carried out under local anaesthetic in the dentist's chair and other times it can be done under full sedation in a surgery. Usually, it depends on the kind of procedure. For easy and straight forward extraction, a local anaesthetic is used while if surgery is required, then sedation is an option.

Avoid Dry Socket

This clot can end up being removed if you do not follow the correct care and this leads to dry socket. Dry socket is very painful. Avoid dry socket by staying away from hard foods while the wound heals, rinse your mouth with salt water after eating, do not chew gum or tobacco and do not use straws when drinking. Do not suffer from complications of a wisdom tooth, contact Wisdom Dental Emergency for examination and if there is a need for extraction, the dentist will advise you on the wisdom teeth removal Melbourne procedure.
