Wisdom Teeth Removal in Coopers Plains – Why is it Necessary?

The modern-day jaw isn’t built to accommodate our wisdom teeth (otherwise known as third molars). As such, when our wisdom teeth are ready to emerge, there simply isn’t enough space for them to develop properly. As a result, they find themselves searching for position with existing teeth, often coming through at awkward angles or getting stuck (impacted) inside the gums. For these reasons, patients generally need to undergo one or more wisdom tooth extractions in Coopers Plains.

That said, not all people have problems with their wisdom teeth. Some Coopers Plains residents may sail through this period without any problems. Many others, however, suffer from swelling, dental infection and discomfort.

In addition, because wisdom teeth are located at the end of each jaw at the back of the mouth they can be hard to clean properly. This makes them vulnerable to decay and disease. For better all-round oral health, your dentist may decide that wisdom tooth extraction is the best option.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Coopers Plains – What to Expect

Patients often worry that wisdom teeth removal will hurt whereas in reality, most of the time, it’s a surprisingly simple and speedy procedure. Our Coopers Plains dentist will talk you through the surgical procedure and the cost involved, so you know exactly what to expect.

First, the area is gently numbed using anaesthesia. This is a local anaesthetic meaning that Coopers Plains patients will remain awake but comfortable during the extraction process. If your wisdom tooth is impacted, then a small incision will be made in the gums to expose the tooth and bone. The tooth may need to be cut into sections to make it easier to remove. Once removed, the site will be cleaned and the gums are closed, to promote healing. For simple procedures, it should take only a short time to complete, but might take longer if the tooth is badly impacted.

Frequently asked questions

What happens after wisdom teeth removal in Coopers Plains
Immediately after removal of your wisdom teeth, Coopers Plains patients will be asked to bite down on a piece of gauze for around 45 minutes. This allows a blood clot to form. Once the effects of the anaesthetic wear off, you may feel a little discomfort. This can usually be relieved by taking painkillers such as Ibuprofen. Recovery in straightforward cases should take no more than 48 hours.
Does wisdom tooth extraction cause swelling?
It depends on the individual and on the complexity of the procedure. Some people experience facial swelling and bruising which can be relieved by placing a cold compress or ice pack wrapped in a towel on the site of the face that is swollen.

Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
