Impacted Wisdom Teeth

impacted wisdom teeth removal Sunshine Coast. Wisdom teeth or third molars are the final pair of molars that people usually get in their late teens or early twenties. The emergence of wisdom teeth may bring you pain or discomfort in your gums. People will usually get four wisdom teeth – two on the bottom and two on the top. Getting wisdom teeth is a common milestone in dental health, but some may face issues in its growth.

When the wisdom teeth don’t have enough space to erupt they may get impacted. When the mouth of a person is too crowded, the third molars may get trapped and have a problem developing normally. This may cause you pain, oral discomfort, and sometimes bleeding gums. You must get in touch with us at Buderim Dental Care so we can book a consultation with our expert dentist.

From misalignment to infection and cavities, a problematic wisdom tooth can cause a myriad of dental issues. When the wisdom tooth tries to erupt at a misaligned angle, it tends to push the second molar, causing damage to it. The second molar becomes susceptible to infection.
The wisdom tooth comes out in a sac located within the jawbone. When the tooth is impacted, the sac may fill up with fluid and form a cyst, which may damage the jawbone, nerves, and tooth. The complication requires the immediate attention of a caring dentist who may have to remove the bone and tissue.
Partially appeared wisdom teeth pose a high risk of tooth decay. This is because food easily gets trapped between the partially erupted wisdom tooth and the gum, causing bacteria to develop, which causes tooth decay. The decay in the tooth causes inflammation in the gums and becomes painful. Pain and discomfort in the gums can also cause headaches and pain in the jawbones.
Therefore, if you do not want your oral health to suffer then, you must book an appointment with our expert dentists as soon as you detect the symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth. Delaying the extraction process can cause complications and unbearable pain.

Before our expert dentists begin their treatment process, our professional anesthetist will examine the area that will be treated. The anesthetist ensures that the patient is comfortable throughout the extraction process of the wisdom tooth.

An average tooth removal procedure may usually cost you $225. But this is just an approximation and the actual bill may vary depending on the severity of your condition and the anesthetic that you may choose while undergoing the treatment.

Are there any risks in the wisdom tooth extraction process?

While most patients recover quickly after the extraction, there are two possible risks that some patients may face:
One type of risk that a patient may develop is – ‘dry socket’ post-surgery. This may happen at least 3 to 4 days after the wisdom tooth has been extracted. The blood clot that should be formed after the extraction of the wisdom tooth is either dissolved or dislodged before the wound is completely healed. This tends to expose the nerves and bone beneath and will cause you pain and bad breath. You must get in touch with our dentist immediately to fix the problem.
The second type of risk is strained jaws. This happens when the wisdom teeth in the lower gum are connected to the nerves quite closely. Patients get a weird sensation in their lips. This is a temporary condition and subsides soon, but if the problem persists, you must get in touch with our dentist.

How does it feel after extracting the wisdom teeth?

After the extraction process of your wisdom tooth, the gum surrounding the tooth will be swollen. You may also experience pain and some bleeding in the area where the extraction process was performed. However, these symptoms are temporary and will heal quickly. Our caring dentists will advise you on how to take care of the area post-extraction.

What are the oral care tips for healthy teeth post-extraction of wisdom teeth?

Our expert dentists will advise you on dos and don’ts of post-extraction of wisdom teeth. Following their instructions will help in maintaining good oral health in the future. Some general guidelines recommended by them include:

  • If you smoke, wait for at least 72 hours after your tooth extraction before you can resume smoking again.
  • Avoid using a straw to sip a beverage.
  • Don’t consume alcohol.
  • Rough rinsing of the mouth, blowing the nose, and spitting should be avoided for a certain number of days, as advised by the dentist.
  • Don’t eat or drink hot foods and beverages.
