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.
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.
