Tooth Extraction / Wisdom Teeth Removal

Is toothache costing you sleepless nights? Serenity Smiles Dental offers tooth extraction, tooth removal and wisdom tooth removal in Epping.
Your wisdom teeth are a set of molars that grow in the back of your mouth. Effectively they function as a third set of molars and, even though they can be seen in x-rays, they probably won’t emerge until you are between the age of 17 and 25.

Teeth are generally extracted because:

● Decay has spread too far into the tooth for it to be saved
● Your mouth doesn’t have the space for all your teeth
● Infection has extended into a large portion of the tooth or bone

Serenity Smiles Dental is proud to offer an experienced and highly skilled team that offers tooth extraction and wisdom tooth removal.

Why Extract Wisdom Teeth?

Most people need to have their wisdom teeth removed because

● They are growing at the incorrect angle and may push against your molars.
● They are impacted and therefore cannot come out correctly. This can cause them to be trapped in your gums or jawbone, leading to pain and discomfort.
● Your jaw is too small for an extra set of molars.
● Gum disease or cavities in your mouth can develop if the wisdom teeth are so far back you can’t reach them to clean them properly.

What Can You Expect From Tooth Extraction Surgery?

Your dentist will take an x-ray of your jaw and review your dental history. He or she will need to evaluate the shape and position of your tooth, in order to assess the complexity of the procedure.

Your dentist will numb the area to make it as painless as possible. Depending on the complexity of the procedure and the location of the tooth, the extraction itself will not take more than a few minutes.

Because of the factors listed above, wisdom teeth tend to be more challenging to extract than your other teeth. Our team has skilfully performed countless extractions and is well experienced to handle wisdom teeth removal.

Your dentist will loosen the tooth first and then extract it. It may be necessary for the bone underneath to be contoured or for the area to be sealed.

You will be asked to bite down hard onto a piece of cotton for a few seconds, to limit the bleeding.

The vast majority of patients have no pain following the procedure and very few patients need to take painkillers. You may notice some swelling for a few days afterwards but if you follow your dentist’s advice for oral hygiene post-surgery you can speed up your rate of recovery.

Some tips for post-surgical healing:
● Use an ice pack or heat for a sore or swollen jaw
● Be gentle with your mouth. Open and close it gently to release tension
● Don’t eat on the side you had the extraction
● Don’t smoke because this can slow down your rate of healing
● Brush and floss as instructed by your dentist
