Wisdom Teeth Problems

Wisdom teeth are often impacted (not enough room to erupt fully) between the ages 18-25.

An Oral Surgeon is best placed to remove deeply impacted wisdom teeth.

Twilight sedation or a general anaesthetic options are available.

Our Oral Surgeon will discuss the pros and cons of these at your consultation.

At My Dentist we have a wide network or Oral Surgeons available.

We are also comfortable referring you to your chosen surgeon.

Some wisdom teeth which don’t erupt fully may cause decay in the adjacent teeth from food impaction.

Others wisdom teeth only need long term monitoring. That is, they can be left in place without adverse outcomes.

We advise to have an OPG full mouth x-ray in late teens to establish the presence of wisdom teeth and their potential for impaction.
