Wisdom teeth often need to be extracted due to the following reasons
- Tooth Impaction
- Tooth Decay
- Difficult in providing good Oral Hygiene
- Pushes neighbouring teeth
- Jaw bone destruction
How are they removed?
As many wisdom teeth end up being impacted, extraction becomes challenging as well. They are often submerged below the gum or deep in the bone tissues.
Impacted wisdom teeth are removed surgically where it requires opening of the surrounding tissues to allow better access for the removal.
For normally emerged wisdom teeth that require extractions often can be treated like normal dental extractions.
The procedure can be done under local anaesthesia as well as under general anaesthesia.
Dentists at Prahran Family Dental strive to ensure that the wisdom teeth are removed in the safest and relaxed manner possible.
We work together with oral-maxillofacial surgeons near by should any case requires referral.
