The four wisdom teeth (otherwise known as third molars) typically erupt between the age of 17 and 25, and they are the last teeth to erupt. It is not uncommon for the wisdom teeth to cause issues such as tooth decay and crowding, and in some cases wisdom teeth may be impacted. In these cases, wisdom tooth extraction is often necessary to reduce the risk of experiencing serious dental complications.
Rose Dental provide Wisdom Teeth Extraction at our Five Dock dental clinic. During an initial evaluation, an x-ray will be taken of your wisdom teeth. This is typically done from the ages of 15 and 19 to determine and monitor the position of any wisdom teeth early on.
Wisdom tooth extraction is performed under anaesthetic. Your dentist will also discuss sedation options prior to your appointment to ensure you are comfortable. Your dentist will guide you through the process, duration of treatment and post-operative healing times.
