Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth usually begin developing in the teenage years and may continue into a person’s late 20s. This third set of molars may never cause any problems, or could require removal due to complications.

At Willsmere Dental we have an on site OPG Machine and specially trained dental professionals on staff which means you can usually have your entire procedure from diagnosis to after care completed at our modern Kew dentist practice, without needing to be referred elsewhere.

Our visiting oral surgeon Dr Ayasamy specialises in the extraction of wisdom teeth.

We will determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned. Not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth removed, but some people may due to reasons such as:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Impaction
  • Cysts or tumours
  • Crowding caused by pressure from the wisdom teeth
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay that is not restorable

Removing your wisdom teeth may also be an important step in periodontal therapy or orthodontic treatments. If removal is necessary, we will discuss a variety of sedation and anaesthesia choices with you to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
