Do Wisdom Teeth really make us wiser? Uh no, all they do is bring us pain and discomfort. While they were a necessity for our ancestors who needed extra molars to grind on tough food, they are neither a necessity for us now nor is there any place left in our jaws for them. Wisdom Teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the last of the molars to erupt and often appear when we are in our teens and sometimes in early twenties too.
Due to our smaller jaws compared to our early ancestors, there isn’t enough room for these molars to settle easily. This lack of space means wisdom teeth can only partially emerge, or come in crooked, resulting in discomfort and sometimes disease due to overcrowding. Dental associations often recommend patients to have their Wisdom Teeth removed before they turn 20 as by this age, there is less developed roots and thus fewer complications.
While wisdom teeth will try to grow even when there is no room for them, it is important for a person to understand that they need to leave your jaw regardless of their creating a discomfort for you or not. If wisdom teeth are left untreated, they can often form abscesses under the gum line and further health risks.
If you or your child needs to have their Wisdom Teeth removed, call us at (02) 4505 1223 or 0424 966 544 to have your Teeth Removed in Richmond. Our expert and qualified Dentists will assess your Wisdom Teeth and will recommend if you require a removal or not. In some cases, wisdom teeth do not impact other teeth, hence we take X-rays to ensure that the extraction is actually a necessity. It is also not essential to have all of your Wisdom Teeth removed, as it depends on which molars they’re affecting.
Wisdom Teeth Removal at Smilexcellence is a fairly simple and pain-free procedure. It’s even easier for children as they haven’t yet developed stronger roots. The procedure itself takes less than 40 minutes, depending on your case. While we also offer enhanced sedation, it is definitely not a requirement and nor a recommendation. Wisdom Tooth extraction is a regular procedure and Dentists at Smilexcellence provide supervised recovery space and comforting tools to keep you at ease.
However, for those who have anxiety troubles or prefer to be under sedation, you can definitely avail those services too. While the thought of Wisdom Tooth removal can be intimidating, Dentists at Smilexcellence do everything to make sure that patients are in their comfort zone during and after the procedure.
