Wisdom Teeth Removal Sydney – A Safe Tooth Extraction to Prevent Serious Dental Issues
Are your wisdom teeth starting to trouble you? Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, but unlike the other two sets of molars, these often serve no purpose for most people, which can often cause more harm than good for those who develop them.
Did you know 85% of young adults do not have room for third molars? For some people, wisdom teeth may never bother them, but for many more, wisdom teeth can lead to all sorts of problems such as headaches, discomfort, and even misalignment. In most cases, dentists recommend that 90% of their patients get their wisdom teeth removed to prevent dental health issues such as decay, infections, and more.
Pain from wisdom teeth is a dental condition that many people come to see us every day. Not everyone has enough space for their wisdom teeth to come through their gums. Our Wisdom Teeth Removal Sydney professionals offer superior wisdom teeth removal in Sydney to make sure your smile stays healthy for the rest of your life.
There are two possible issues: the wisdom tooth can become impinged and become situated between the molar tooth in front of it. When this happens, food and bacteria can get stuck and cause an infection. The inflammation at the top of the tooth is called pericoronitis.
Causes of Wisdom Tooth Pain
If you’ve been experiencing pain from your wisdom teeth, you might want to see a dentist about the issue. You might be experiencing wisdom teeth discomfort for one of several reasons, and in most cases, we suggest wisdom teeth removal Sydney as the solution. Even if wisdom teeth rarely cause pain, most people still choose to have them removed to allow them to grow in. Here are some of the common causes of wisdom teeth pain.
- Your wisdom teeth could be growing in and can cause swelling, soreness, and slight pain when they break through the gums.
- Wisdom teeth often grow very close to neighbouring teeth due to lack of space. Cavities easily form in this tight space because it’s hard to clean.
- If your wisdom teeth become impacted, you may experience swelling, difficulty chewing or biting, or pain in your jaw.
- A cyst can form when a wisdom tooth is impacted, causing pain and damage to the tooth and jawbone.
- Wisdom teeth are more likely to develop gum disease because of their location and lack of space.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Sydney – The Procedure
After the initial consultation, our dental professionals will determine whether you are a good candidate for wisdom teeth removal in Sydney. Once we finalise that having your wisdom teeth removed is the best option, the procedure or oral surgery will be scheduled. In most cases, you will require someone to drive you home after an extraction.
Anaesthesia – The doctor will administer local anaesthesia, which will help to numb the region and remove the feeling of pain. In some cases, general anaesthesia such as nitrous oxide or laughing gas may be used in combination with local anaesthesia to help calm your nerves or even put you to sleep. We discuss about the type of anaesthesia the patient will be administering before the beginning of the procedure to identify whether or not there are any known allergies beforehand.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction – If you have an impacted wisdom tooth, we will make a small incision to expose the tooth. Then we will break the tooth into smaller pieces before it can be removed to reduce the size of the incision. You will not feel any pain during the procedure as the surgical place is numbed using anaesthesia but may feel some pressure. The empty socket will be sealed with dissolvable stitches and covered with a large piece of gauze. In order to form a blood clot, you will need to bite down on it.
After-care – After the procedure, you will remain at our dental office for some time, but you will not be able to drive yourself home. Once you get home, make sure you protect the blood clot that was formed at the end of your procedure. Limit eating solid foods, drinking from straws, and similar things that could dislodge the blood clot and might not be so good for your recovery.
