What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are molars that are at the very back of your mouth. They are sometimes referred to as 3rd molars. They usually come through in your late teens or twenties, however, sometimes there is not enough space in your jaw for these teeth and they can become stuck or impacted against other teeth or bone. Sometimes they can partially come through leaving a flap of gum over the tooth. This can be hard to clean and may result in the tooth becoming decayed or the gum becoming inflamed or even infected.


Why Do Wisdom Teeth Sometimes Have To Be Removed?
There are several reasons to have wisdom teeth removed. Some people may need to have them removed because they are impacted, meaning they cannot come through properly. Others may need to have them removed because they are causing pain or other problems.
If impacted wisdom teeth are not removed, they can cause a number of problems. They may tend to grow inwards and crowd other teeth, causing chewing and biting problems. They can cause problems with your jaw such as TMJ syndrome, and even affect jawbone growth.

If you are experiencing pain from a wisdom tooth, it is best to talk to the team at Dental Care Castle Hill for help. Depending on the extent of the pain and other factors, removing the tooth or teeth may be necessary. If you are considering having your wisdom tooth removed, there are several options available to you. Once again, your dentist will be able to advise the best course of action for you.

Procedure For Wisdom Tooth Removal
The procedure for wisdom tooth removal varies depending on your situation. In general, the dentist will numb the area and then remove the tooth. Often, the procedure can be completed in a single visit. There are usually no lasting changes to the lips or gums and the recovery time is minimal. Simple wisdom tooth removal can usually be completed at the dental surgery.

While wisdom teeth are usually fairly easy to remove, sometimes, they can be complex and your dentist may refer you to a specialist oral surgeon to have the procedure possibly done under a general anaesthetic at a hospital.
