Wisdom Teeth


Visit Our Brisbane Clinic for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in the mouth. Their name stems from the fact that some people develop extra “supernumerary” teeth and some do not even develop any. The underlying issue is that not everyone has enough space in their jaw for these teeth to erupt. Sometimes, this leads to the teeth only partially coming through the gum. Furthermore, the tooth may not always erupt in the right direction and have been known to sit horizontally facing the tooth in front of it.

Our dental clinic in The Gap, Brisbane can provide you with the necessary treatment for the benefit of your long term oral health, including root canal therapy.

There are several general reasons as to why wisdom teeth need to be removed

  1. Due to their partial eruption, a lot of food collects around the tooth and leads to continual gum infections around the tooth.
  2. Due to the awkward direction of the tooth when it erupts, it can damage the tooth in front of it or the tissue (such as the cheek) around it.
  3. As these teeth are located at the back of the mouth, many people find it difficult to clean them and end up suffering from tooth decay. In these cases, it is usually easier and also dentally better to remove the tooth for the patient’s long term oral health.

The reason why wisdom tooth extraction of has such a bad name is because of the difficult position of the tooth and the unpredictable shape of its roots. Every year, many are removed without any problems; however, there are definitely difficult cases. Unfortunately, like most things, it is the negative stories that are heard more often and this has led to the negative connotations surrounding wisdom teeth removal.
If any case is considered too difficult to carry out at Complete Smile Dental, we have a list of very capable and professional oral Surgeons that we refer our cases to. Furthermore, if any patients wish to have their surgery done under General Anaesthetic, we would need to refer them to the Oral Surgeons as well.
