Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the third molars which generally erupt into the mouth around the age of 18-25.
These wisdom teeth are the very last tooth and are situated very far back in the mouth. Subsequently they are very difficult to access. They also have a high tendency to grow sideways which essentially means that they cannot successfully erupt into the mouth.
Wisdom Teeth Symptoms & Pain
Due to the position and the alignment of these teeth, sometimes they will cause problems such as decay (on the wisdom tooth itself or the tooth next to it) and pericoronitis and subsequently giving us pain. It is important to have these wisdom teeth assessed early in order to prevent problems from escalating.
f your wisdom teeth are causing you issues, having them removed can be a safe and effective way to prevent your symptoms from returning. To find out more about wisdom tooth removal or to book in for an assessment please contact Fullarton Park Dental on (08) 8272 5271.
