Some individuals never develop wisdom teeth, but others may have up to four, one in each corner of their mouth. Wisdom teeth are molars that usually emerge between the ages of 17 and 24 and stay trouble-free in some situations. However, when wisdom teeth can become impacted when they don’t have enough space to grow, which may need to be removed to prevent infection and inflammation.
If your wisdom teeth have become impacted, you may notice pain, swollen gums and jaw stiffness. Wisdom teeth removal is usually the only permanent solution, and also ensures that the surrounding teeth do not become infected.
Our team at My Affordable Dentists has the specialist training, state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience to ensure quick, safe and professional wisdom teeth removal.
Usually, wisdom teeth removal is performed under local anaesthetic. You’ll be awake throughout the procedure, but the local anaesthetic will block out all pain from your teeth and gums. However, some individuals have particularly troublesome wisdom teeth or feel anxious about the procedure. To allow you to sleep peacefully through your surgery, your dentist may suggest a general anaesthetic.
Our team at My Affordable Dentists can offer both local and general anaesthetic options for your wisdom teeth removal procedure. Call us now to know about fasting guidelines and other pre-surgery requirements.
