Third Molars, also called wisdom teeth, appear between the ages of 16 and 24, though they can appear later or earlier than this. These are the last set of permanent teeth to erupt and can put your dental health at risk. If your wisdom teeth are causing pain, you can approach the dentists at A1 Dental Clinic for thorough screening and consultation. During your visit, we will perform a radiographic examination to identify the root cause of the problem and determine if they have to be extracted. Before we begin, we will explain to you the steps involved and keep you informed of the procedures.
When Do You Need Wisdom Teeth Removal?
- When the wisdom teeth emerge through your gum and your jaw is too small to accommodate them, they will force the neighbouring teeth out of alignment and affect your bite.
- When they don’t erupt through your gum and not in a normal position, it would result in crowded teeth, misalignment of teeth and poor bite.
- When the wisdom teeth collect food particles and traces of bacteria, it leads to tooth decay and bad breath.
What Happens During The Procedure?
- We use radiographic technology to determine the position and condition of your wisdom teeth.
- You will be given local anesthesia to numb the teeth as well as the surrounding tissues, ensuring a painless procedure.
- Our dentist uses forceps to grasp the tooth and rock it back and forth to loosen it.
- After removing the tooth, the dentist will give you a gauze pad to bite on to stop bleeding.
You could feel slight discomfort for a few days after the extraction, but following the dentist’s advice ensures quick healing and helps you avoid infection. As a part of aftercare, we recommend taking only soft foods and want you to avoid hot, spicy foods until the wound heals completely.
