If you’re looking for help with your Wisdom Teeth, then come in and see one of our dentists at Teethzz Dental. The team at Teethzz dental are able to assess your wisdom teeth and provide detailed advice on their status and all options moving forward.
Removal of teeth is considered the last resort in the modern dental industry and is generally only undertaken when the patient has teeth that are either diseased or in trauma. There are exceptions with children and their baby teeth.
The main exception to this is the ‘Wisdom Teeth” also commonly known as the “Third Molars”.
Wisdom Teeth problems commonly present in the late teens and above as they are the last teeth to erupt into the oral cavity. Most people have four wisdom teeth and quite often the problem at hand is the lack of space for them. Because of this, discomfort tends to prevail.
As the wisdom tooth erupts, the gum surface may become inflamed or become infected which can cause pain, swelling and jaw stiffness.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure and should be assessed and removed as soon as possible to minimise discomfort and to ensure pain does not get worse.
We understand “Wisdom Teeth” and the stigma surrounding the seriousness of these teeth, but can assure you that patient care, comfort and professionalism is at the forefront of our team.
Wisdom teeth are a result of biologically developed man over 1000s of years. These teeth were allocated to replace the back teeth as they deteriorated and became worn over time due to the robust life style and eating habits of man.
As can be expected the modern age has seen man evolve, and with a more refined dietary intake and less wear and tear, these teeth are now often considered at times to be problematic, and extracted.
This is also important to minimise denture discolouration over time and to maximise their life before re-lining, re-basing is required.
Regular visits are recommended so as we can assess your mouth and Dentures to ensure they remain properly fitted and that you are happy with them.
With advice and care, we will give you the confidence to wear your Dentures with a long and lasting smile and be one of the happy millions who have adopted Dentures as part of their life.
