Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom tooth extraction may be necessary, as sometimes your mouth simply has no room for the incoming wisdom tooth, and if left untreated, it may cause problems such as jaw pain, tooth shifting and sinus.

Wisdom tooth, also known as your “third molar” usually come in between the ages of 17 – 24. Many times they come in only partially, sideways or impacted due to limited space in your mouth. If this occurs, your wisdom tooth may need to be extracted.

The Extraction Procedure and After Care:

As a reputable dentist in Maroochydore, we carry out the following procedure for wisdom tooth extraction.

  • An anaesthetic is applied to the wisdom tooth area and surrounding tissue.
  • Once you’re completely numb, the dentist will carefully remove the wisdom tooth.

After the procedure, bleeding and swelling may occur. We will apply gauze to bleeding areas and use ice to reduce swelling. You will be prescribed medication for pain. You will also be asked to maintain a cold liquid and soft food diet for a few days after the procedure, and to avoid brushing the extracted tooth area for the first 24 hours.
