WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL IN MORNINGTON
Painless Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth have the bad reputation of causing unbearable pain not only while they are coming in but also during extraction. But contrary to these perceptions, wisdom tooth extractions can help in treating the pain caused by the impacted tooth. At Baxter Dental Surgery, we do pain-free wisdom tooth removal in our Mornington Clinic.
What necessitates wisdom teeth removal?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are called such because they are the last teeth to erupt, and usually do not come through until people are in their late teens, twenties or even older. By this time, usually the adult jaw structure has already been developed, leaving little space for the new teeth to erupt, causing them to get impacted. Some wisdom teeth remain in place and cause no trouble, but the ones that continue to erupt can also affect adjacent teeth and the jaws, causing immense pain and discomfort. This situation can also give rise to other complications, like infection in the adjacent teeth, ulcers and problems with chewing. These are the reasons why it is recommended to remove problematic wisdom teeth.
What to expect during the procedure?
Most wisdom tooth removal procedures can be easily performed under local anaesthesia, by our general dentists in Mornington. In this case, the teeth, gums and tissue surrounding the impacted tooth are numbed using a local anaesthetic. This process can take a few minutes to take effect, and will ensure that there will be no pain during the extraction process, and even for some time after that. After ensuring that you do not feel any sensation in that area, our dentists will then proceed to extract the wisdom tooth.
Complicated cases might need to be referred to an oral surgeon and can be managed under conscious sedation or general anaesthesia.
