Wisdom teeth removal can be daunting
But with the right approach, you can be healed and happy in less time that you think
Dr Nimesh works with a wisdom tooth specialist, who visits Timeless Smiles Dental on an as required basis, and is very experienced at wisdom tooth removal under sedation, both in the clinic and in a hospital setting, if that is necessary.
While development of wisdom teeth occurs over several years, very often severe pain caused by wisdom teeth occurs suddenly and acutely. This can be avoided by maintaining regular hygiene visits, whereby your dentist or hygienist can track and monitor issues before they arise. Using these visits as a checkpoint, it is possible to identify whether your wisdom teeth are likely to be problematic and have them removed pre-emptively, rather than after problems emerge.
How do you know if wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Apart from associated pain, many factors influence the need to remove wisdom teeth: jaw size, the position of the third molar, and the presence of other factors such as gum disease, crowding, decay, and cysts.
Before making any decisions about the most effective course of action, Dr Nimesh will complete a thorough examination that will assess the pattern by which your wisdom teeth are erupting. This would inform the method by which your wisdom teeth would need to be removed. Only after clarifying this, will your next best step be made clear.
