Wisdom teeth are the last tooth series to appear in the mouth and often have insufficient space to take their proper position in the mouth.
When a wisdom tooth impacts it can cause decay, damage to adjacent teeth and cause infection around surrounding gums.
To aid in the diagnosis and treatment plan for wisdom teeth, DentalCareXtra will take 3D X-rays.
Treatments can be designated for non-surgical and surgical management.
Non-surgical management involves maintaining and undertaking a regular review of your condition with a special emphasis on keeping them as clean as possible.
Surgical management involves removal of your wisdom teeth in either the dental chair under local anaesthesia, oral sedation or a general anaesthetic*.
We can assist you in arranging a surgical extraction under sedation at MacKay Hospital.
