Wisdom Teeth

What are wisdom teeth, and why do they often need to be removed?

Wisdom teeth appear in your late teens or early twenties and are the last teeth to grow. They can often cause significant pain and can have a massive impact on your daily life if you ignore them. People often have insufficient space in their mouth for them, and they can cause the rest of your teeth to move.

Wisdom teeth can easily start to decay, which will lead to further pain and bad breath. They often take a longer time to come out, and parts of the teeth may be covered by gum for an extended time, making them difficult to brush. Food and bacteria can build up and cause infection and further complications to nearby teeth as well.

What is the wisdom teeth removal process?

Champion Dental can help reduce and eliminate the pain you feel by wisdom teeth removal. We follow a process to determine whether removal is the right option for you or if we can solve the issue in another way.

Our experienced team will:

  • Take an Xray of your whole mouth to assess how your wisdom teeth are positioned,
  • If the situation is tricky and complicated, we will refer you to a specialist who is better equipped to help eliminate your pain, and
  • Provide local anaesthesia to minimise discomfort during the removal.

At Champion Dental, we are experienced in removing wisdom teeth; however, we will refer you to a specialist if needed, as we strive on giving our patients the best dental care. You can expect your wisdom teeth removal to be similar to a normal teeth removal process, but it might take longer due to the more complex situation.
