Safe, Comfortable & Quick Wisdom Teeth Removal

The concept of having wisdom teeth extracted can be overwhelming to say the least. This practice is widely known to cause ongoing pain and discomfort. However, most of the associated pain from wisdom tooth removal comes after the procedure. With the help of our dental team, we can handle the extraction process quickly, safely and with as little discomfort as possible.

We place a strong focus on communication and comfort throughout all our procedures. As such, our team will keep you informed at each stage of the extraction.

Depending on the extraction site and how impacted your wisdom teeth are, the healing process can take up to 10 days and sometimes longer. Our team will provide all the advice needed to navigate this process, as well as any prescriptions for required painkillers.

If you are concerned about your wisdom teeth, get in touch with Crestwood Family Dental on (07) 5649 8661.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Your wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to come through in development, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. Most people have four wisdom teeth—two at the top, two at the bottom. Some have more, some have less. Regardless, in certain cases, the wisdom tooth does not have the room to come through and instead becomes impacted.

This means your wisdom tooth could be growing at an angle toward the next tooth, the back of the mouth, inward or even straight down! A person dealing with an impacted wisdom tooth will often feel pain and pressure toward the back of their jaw. If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can cause infection, decay and gum disease.

Therefore, it’s imperative that you visit a dental team that is equipped to deal with wisdom tooth extractions. At Crestwood Family Dental, we provide x-rays and in-depth examinations to determine the source of your jaw pain. To get started, book an appointment at our clinic in Molendinar on (07) 5649 8661.

Preventing Wisdom Tooth Impaction

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to prevent the impaction of your wisdom teeth. However, by staying up to date with regular check-ups, you can catch the issue early. This allows your dentist to extract the tooth/teeth before you deal with the pain of impaction.

There is no good time to have your wisdom teeth extracted but doing so early saves you a lot of discomfort in the long run. We recommend visiting Crestwood Family Dental for 6-monthly check-ups. From there, our team will create a treatment plan that’s tailored to your needs. Book your appointment today!
