Wisdom Teeth Removal Sydney

Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removal Performed in Sydney

There isn’t one definite reason why people require wisdom teeth removal in Sydney. Sometimes, these teeth are removed because they cause pain and persistent problems. Other times, wisdom teeth are removed because they may only partially erupt and can be difficult to clean, leading to cavities or other oral health problems. In some cases, people elect to have their wisdom teeth removed to avoid potential problems or long-term pain down the road.

If you are considering having your wisdom teeth removed, it is essential to talk to a professional so you can understand the full scope of the risks and benefits that come with this procedure.

If you are a young adult and suffering from significant pain, infection of the soft tissue or swelling in the back of your mouth and jaw, your wisdom teeth may be beginning to emerge — in that case, you should consider Sydney wisdom teeth removal. Thankfully, wisdom teeth and their removal are common and typically standard procedures, occurring in approximately 65% of the population.

Not everyone’s wisdom teeth will require removal. However, depending on the size of your jaw, the angle of eruption, how far they do emerge, the proximity to your nerves and your number of wisdom teeth (depending on genetic factors people can have between 1 and 4), you may need yours extracted.

    • When assessing whether wisdom teeth removal is necessary there are several typical situations where it is advisable, including:
    • When the teeth are impacted, or trapped, within your jaw and are unable to successfully emerge.
    • Horizontal or angled growth that doesn’t align with your jaw and other teeth, meaning the potential to displace or damage nearby teeth.
    • When they partially emerge to create areas where the gum overhangs the tooth. This soft tissue easily captures food and is often difficult to clean, making it a breeding ground for bacteria and susceptibility to periodontal disease and infection.

Emergency wisdom teeth removal in Sydney

About Smiles is dedicated to offering dental care when needed, so if you have a dental emergency, we can help you on a same-day basis — after-hours appointments can be made until 7 pm on Thursdays and 4 pm on Saturdays. 

Emergency dental surgery is critical because it can help to prevent more severe health problems from developing. If a wisdom tooth is ready to be removed or becomes severely damaged or infected, it can lead to other issues such as pain, swelling, and even fever. In some cases, emergency dental surgery may be the only way to treat severe infection or injury. Emergency dental surgery can also help to improve the overall health of your mouth and teeth. 

If you experience severe pain or have been instructed to seek immediate dental care, don’t hesitate. Contact us and make an appointment to be treated today.

Pain Management Options

We understand just how painful your wisdom teeth can be before surgery and we have your wellbeing in mind when it comes to treatment and surgery. We offer three sedation options depending on the severity of your cases:

  • Local anaesthetic — A numbing agent invaluable to our wisdom teeth removals in Sydney and helps to relax tissue and prevent pain. Local anesthetics are either injected or applied to the surface of the skin and work by numbing the nerves in the area to block pain signals from reaching the brain.
  • Intravenous sedation, commonly known as sleep dentistry — Used in more extreme cases to ensure you don’t feel any pain during your urgent procedure. 
  • General anaesthetic at a hospital — In some cases, you’ll need general anaesthetic to have the most comfortable and effective procedure for wisdom teeth removal in Sydney.

If you are experiencing significant wisdom teeth pain before surgery, there are a few things that you can do at home to make the pain more manageable:

  • Make sure to avoid any foods that are difficult to chew or that may cause discomfort. Soft foods and liquids can help reduce the amount of pain you experience.
  • You can use a cold compress on the area where your wisdom teeth are causing discomfort. This can help to reduce inflammation and provide relief from pain.
  • If the pain is severe, you may want to consider taking over-the-counter medication.

Talk to your dentist if you have any questions or concerns about managing wisdom teeth pain before surgery — and to answer how much does wisdom teeth removal cost in Sydney.
