What is a Wisdom Tooth and Why Should You Remove It?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are one of the last teeth present at the back of your mouth. They are the last ones to develop and may grow irregularly leading to problems like pain, cavities, swollen gums, jaw pain, and even bad breath.
Wisdom teeth can either break out in other teeth, or stay beneath the gums. This not only impacts your root nerves under the jaw but also gives rise to a series of dental concerns, a few reasons they need to be extracted early on.
What is The Best Time to Remove Your Wisdom Teeth?
Ideally, our dentists performing wisdom tooth extraction in Bendigo recommend you get your wisdom teeth removed at an early age; a time when your roots and jawbone haven’t fully developed. For some patients, it can be as early as their pre-teens while some may not require extraction until they reach 18 years of age.
This also helps the patient to recover faster after the extraction with minor complications compared to an adult.
What is Wisdom Tooth Removal Like?
During the procedure your dentist will apply local anaesthesia before starting the procedure to numb the area. The dentist will then slowly move your tooth with a tool, rocking it back and forth until they take it out.
While doing this you could feel a bit of pressure as your tooth is being removed but won’t notice any pain because of the anaesthesia.
Will I Feel Any Pain?
Patients that undergo the extraction don’t immediately feel pain. However, your mouth might swell or may cause slight discomfort for a few days. This is normal with any extraction and will subside in a few weeks.
To ensure you feel no pain during your wisdom tooth removal and any complications thereafter, we recommend meeting our Bendigo dentists in advance to plan the treatment ahead.
