Wisdom Teeth Removal Logan & Underwood

Wisdom teeth often emerge at a skewed angle or stay lodged in the gum. This can cause complications such as damage to nerves, jaw bone, and adjacent teeth. Dentist at Underwood specialise in wisdom teeth removal in Logan & Brisbane.

This third and final set of molars to appear are also particularly prone to decay because they’re difficult to reach when brushing and flossing.

Complications caused by wisdom teeth can also lead to general health issues. You may get headaches related to bite problems, for example. And if a wisdom tooth becomes infected, inflammation can spread through your body, putting vital organs at risk.

This is why dentists take out wisdom teeth as a preventive measure as well as to address problems that have already developed.

Problems Wisdom Teeth Cause

Wisdom teeth emerge at each end of the upper and lower gums, usually around the ages of 17 to 25, and in many cases there isn’t enough room for them. Evolution has resulted in smaller jaws, while the size of our teeth has changed little.

Issues wisdom teeth cause include:

  • Impaction – when teeth remain enclosed within the gum or in jaw bone, or only partially emerge through the gum line
  • Cysts – fluid-filled sacs
  • Tooth crowding leading to decay and gum infection, ulcers, and chewing problems
  • Oral hygiene difficulties
  • Pain and swelling in the jaw
  • Headaches and sinus problems
  • Bad breath
  • Bad taste in the mouth

Even if your wisdom teeth are causing no immediate problems, they may well do so later, when extraction can be more difficult.

When Wisdom Teeth Should be Removed

Dentists typically recommend removal of wisdom teeth from the ages of 18 to the early 20s, when the tooth roots are less developed and bone is less dense. This makes extraction easier and safer, with minimal damage to surrounding tissue and faster healing and recovery.

Dentist At Underwood can help you decide whether your wisdom teeth need to be removed. If extraction is advisable, we’ll explain the entire process to put you at ease.

We carry out wisdom teeth removal with the help of advanced dental technology and follow up the procedure with post-treatment care to ensure complete recovery. Contact us now to schedule a consultation where we’ll discuss our Logan wisdom teeth removal services in more detail.
