Many of our patients often have questions about wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth or 3rd molars form under the gums just like any other teeth. However they are usually the latest to erupt at around 18-25 years old. Rarely they can take much longer or never erupt.
Signs of wisdom teeth coming through
Swollen gum or jaws which may also cause jaw stiffness
Bleeding gum or jaws at the back of the mouth
Bad taste or smell
Jaw pain can also affect multiple teeth
When do wisdom teeth need to be removed? In some people, there is enough space in the jaw for all wisdom teeth to erupt but most of us are not so lucky.
If your tooth is impacted, it can lead to many problems
High risk of decay – the tooth is very difficult to keep clean
High risk of gum infection – the tooth is constantly pushing on the gums causing irritation. There are also a lot of areas for food and bacteria to get stuck around flappy gums
Risk of damage to the neighbouring teeth – If untreated your 2nd molar is just as vulnerable to the problems mentioned above.
It is no wonder that many dentists are recommending the removal of wisdom teeth to prevent these problems from ever happening.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Brisbane
Typically, wisdom teeth only need to be removed if they cause a problem, such as infection or gum disease. However, it can be difficult to determine when a tooth needs removing. Some people may have pain, swelling or discomfort in their jaw after their wisdom teeth come in. It’s important to have your wisdom teeth removed so they don’t interfere with the rest of your mouth.
Wisdom teeth removal cost can be expensive, but it’s worth it in order to avoid problems later on. The cost of wisdom teeth removal varies widely depending on where you live, where you have the surgery done, and what kind of anesthesia you need.
Wisdom teeth removal used to be a common procedure. In the past, wisdom teeth could be removed with a simple oral surgery. Now, they must be removed by a general dentist or an oral surgeon because the roots have grown into the jawbone and become infected. Removal of wisdom teeth cost in Brisbane depends on the infection that occurred.
What Happens During a Wisdom Tooth Surgery?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth. When wisdom teeth erupt, they may not line up properly with the other teeth or they may grow in at an angle, which can lead to crowding and gum irritation.
In order for wisdom teeth to come out without any complications, the dentist first numbs your mouth with a local anesthesia injection. Then, he or she might use small incisions on both sides of the tooth’s roots to free it from its socket. You may also need to have stitches or bone grafting done before you leave.
