Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth will often start developing in your teenage years or early twenties. For some people, the “third molars'” never cause any problems. However it’s quite common for people to need to have their wisdom teeth removed by a dentist or oral surgeon.

Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Necessary?

Here are some complications that can be caused by an impacted wisdom tooth:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and discomfort, especially when they try to push through the gum tissue or adjacent teeth. This discomfort may be intermittent or chronic.
  • The gum tissue covering an impacted wisdom tooth can become inflamed and infected. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, redness, and difficulty opening the mouth. In severe cases, infection can spread to the throat or neck.
  • A cyst can develop around an impacted wisdom tooth. This fluid-filled sac can damage the jawbone and adjacent teeth, leading to more extensive oral surgery to remove both the tooth and the cyst.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth may push against neighbouring molars, causing them to shift or become misaligned. This can result in bite problems and the need for orthodontic treatment.
  • Because wisdom teeth are located at the back of the mouth and can be challenging to clean properly, they are more susceptible to tooth decay and cavities.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth can trap food particles and bacteria, increasing the risk of gum disease in the surrounding tissues.
  • Impacted upper wisdom teeth can sometimes press against the sinuses, leading to sinus pain, congestion, or even sinus infections.
  • Infection and inflammation around an impacted wisdom tooth can lead to persistent bad breath.

If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can cause severe pain, affecting your oral health. At our Fremantle Clinic, we perform a comprehensive examination before recommending wisdom tooth removal. This helps us address symptoms, treat the underlying cause, remove the infection first, if any, and provide accurate treatment for long-term pain relief and a healthy smile.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure in North Fremantle

We aim to provide a seamless and comfortable procedure for you, prioritising your comfort and well being at every stage. Whether you have bleeding gums, an infection, or need an emergency appointment for an impacted wisdom tooth, we aim to facilitate and provide compassionate care and treatment.

Here’s what you can expect during our wisdom tooth removal procedure:

Evaluation and Assessment

Before the procedure, we will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, often including X-rays, to assess the position, size, and orientation of the wisdom teeth. Based on the evaluation, our dentist will determine whether the wisdom tooth needs to be removed and discuss the best approach with you.

Anesthesia and Sedation

We will discuss anaesthesia and sedation options to ensure your comfort during the procedure. At our Fremantle Clinic, we offer in-house IV sedation for your convenience and ease.

Tooth Removal

If the wisdom tooth is fully erupted and accessible, a local anaesthetic will be administered to numb the area around the tooth. For impacted wisdom teeth that haven't fully emerged from the gum or are positioned at an angle, we will make a small incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and bone beneath. Your tooth will be gently removed, the area cleaned to remove residual debris or infection, and the incision closed with stitches. 

Aftercare & Recovery

We will provide detailed post-operative instructions, including managing any discomfort, swelling, or bleeding. You'll also receive guidance on dietary restrictions, oral hygiene, and when to schedule a follow-up appointment.

Wisdom tooth removal is a common dental procedure which offers the benefits of removing the root cause of pain for a healthier smile. You will need some time to recover after the procedure, though most people can resume normal activities within a few days.

After not being to a dentist in many years, I tried to research dentists in my local area and came across the amazing reviews for Superior Smiles and decided to book an appointment with Dr. Rani. I was so happy with the service I received- all the staff were extremely friendly and professional. I felt like I was in very good hands with Dr. Rani, who talked me through every stage of the appointment step by step, in a clear and gentle manner. I have already booked my next appointment to have some minor work done, as I am extremely happy to return to this dentist. Thank you Dr. Rani and team 🙂

After experiencing terrible episode with dentist many years ago, I have always kept a wide berth and only go when I am in extreme pain. Had my first visit with Dr Rani and she was just wonderful, explained everything as she was going I was made aware of cost and given the option to proceed. Was very caring and I had no pain what so ever , I still have a couple of more visits to go however no more fear and for the first time in many years had experience a comfortable time at the dentist. For people who have a morbid fear I can assure you it will be gone after you experience a visit with Dr Rani staff are also wonderful, I will follow up with the six monthly check ups as required without hesitation. Highly recommend this practice for people who are experiencing anxiety
