Wisdom Teeth Removal in Perth
At Mount Lawley Dental Clinic, our dentists offer a wealth of knowledge and experience in wisdom tooth extraction in Perth. An extraction is a common procedure that our team of experienced dental surgeons perform which assists to eliminate the pain caused by the development of wisdom teeth.
Known as third molars, wisdom teeth are the last of our teeth to erupt, with some people never developing them at all. Emerging over a number of years, wisdom teeth generally only appear in one’s late teens or early twenties. For some, these teeth will emerge without any complications, but for others, their wisdom teeth will require extraction. The limited space in which they grow can impact the other teeth, resulting in further complications if they are not removed.
Wisdom teeth that grow in the wrong direction, into other teeth or even sometimes into the bone, can be very problematic. Not only will this lead to pain and discomfort, but it can result in crowding and misalignment of the teeth and jaw. With two procedures rarely being the same, wisdom teeth removal for all our Perth clients are varied. During your consultation with our dental surgeons, we can assess the nature of your case, and provide the best solution for you.
However, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, only those that do not have enough space to erupt into the mouth. In some cases, wisdom teeth removal may be very simple and can be performed in the dental chair under local anesthetic, while others pose more difficultly and require a surgical procedure. At Mount Lawley Dental Clinic, our experienced team have vast experience in safely removing severely impacted wisdom teeth. We can arrange for your wisdom tooth extraction to occur at our dental surgery under IV sedation with our visiting GP anesthetist, or in hospital under a general anesthetic.
