Wisdom Teeth & Tooth Extraction's
Wisdom teeth extractions are routinely performed; either before or after the teeth come in. Many people have insufficient room to accommodate their wisdom teeth, also known as the ‘third molars’. They may also need removal if they are decayed, cause pain or have a cyst or infection. These teeth often get stuck in the jaw (impacted), which can irritate the gum, causing pain and swelling. In this case, the tooth must be removed.
If you require the extractions of all four wisdom teeth, they are usually taken out at the same time. Wisdom teeth can either be extracted in hospital under a general anaesthetic, or in our Dundas Dental Sydney practice under local anaesthetic. As every tooth and every patient is different, your dentist can discuss with you the most suitable option.
Sedation Dentistry Sydney
Tell your dentist if you are anxious about the tooth extraction procedure, as sedation dentistry is available at Dundas Dental. We can also make the removal of your wisdom teeth less traumatic and get you back to work sooner with the help of sedatives, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and anti-inflammatory medication.
If you’re experiencing pain from your wisdom teeth or other dental issues, please contact us at Dundas Dental in Sydney today to arrange an appointment.
