Wisdom Teeth Extractions

At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, one of the most common procedures we perform is the wisdom tooth removal.

We have extensive experience in extraction procedures, which allows us to provide safe and successful outcomes.

Not all wisdom teeth require extraction as most of them are healthy and have no issues during eruption. But if your wisdom tooth is impacted, it’s advisable to see your dentist as soon as possible.

When Do You Need Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Wisdom teeth extraction is highly recommended for the following reasons:

  • Impaction
  • Incomplete eruption
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Ulcerated gums
  • Insufficient space (crowding)
  • Tooth decay

The Importance of Extracting Impacted Teeth

In most cases, wisdom tooth removal is required if they become impacted. If they are not removed, infection and other problems can occur. In addition, you will experience pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and illness.

Impacted teeth are also hard to clean due to their location in your mouth. If the tooth is partly covered and there is a problem with eruption, there can be at risk of debris accumulation and possible infection.

Signs and indications such as pain, redness, swelling, foul mouth odour, and difficulty in opening the jaw or any other illnesses related to your impacted teeth may cause serious infection if you disregard the treatment.

The Wisdom Teeth Procedure

  • The dentist will first conduct a thorough examination of the impacted teeth and its surrounding teeth.
  • Digital X-rays will be used to determine the position and location of the teeth and if it requires extraction.
  • The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia or sedation dentistry to make the patient comfortable during the procedure.
  • Once the tooth is extracted, the gum is sutured.
  • Wisdom teeth removal is a common and straightforward procedure; thus, you can go home after the procedure once you are ready. The dentist will provide pain medications and post-operative instructions before you leave the clinic.
  • Follow-up appointments may be required to monitor your recovery.

Smoking and Your Wisdom Teeth

If you don’t want to delay your healing process, be sure to quit smoking for a few days following the wisdom teeth procedure. Smoking can negatively affect your recovery and trigger potential complications.

In the news

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), smoking can also affect your sense of taste and smell and delay your recovery after a tooth extraction or other dental procedure.

In addition, the tar from cigarette smoke stains your teeth, causes bad breath and can discolour your tongue. The only way to remove these stains is with a professional cleaning in the dentist’s office.

I cannot speak highly enough of Comfort Dental. Lakshmi and his staff are very professional and well trained and keep up to date on what is happening in Dentistry. I recently had a crown on a tooth in the one sitting, no more temporary crowns and then back in a week for the permanent crown to be fitted......the crown made on the premises by the clever Lakshmi at a very reasonable cost. Both my husband and I are retirees and are very happy to have found Comfort Dental here on the Sunshine Coast.
