Prevent and Protect Your Other Teeth From Decay with Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last to appear and often do not have enough space to erupt correctly. Consequently, they can become lodged in the gum tissue or become impacted beneath your bone.
While some people have no problems with their wisdom teeth, others may experience pain, infection, and damage to the surrounding teeth. In some cases, wisdom teeth may crowd or affect the alignment of your other teeth.
One way to prevent potential dental issues is to have your wisdom teeth removed as a preventative measure. If wisdom teeth are not removed, they can lead to gum disease, dental abscesses, and cysts. In case you’re unsure if your wisdom teeth need to be extracted, visit Brabham Smiles to have them examined and diagnosed. We offer wisdom teeth removal in a state-of-the-art facility with experienced dentists. We use the latest technology and techniques to ensure you receive high-quality dental care and that your procedure is as safe and comfortable as possible.
Dental Problems that Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Address
A flap of gum tissue can grow over the wisdom teeth, creating an environment where food and bacteria can become trapped, increasing the risk of gum disease. Having your wisdom teeth removed can help you reduce your risk of gum disease and prevent bleeding gums.
Wisdom Teeth Pain
Wisdom teeth that are impacted, or stuck and unable to grow properly, can be quite painful. Removing them as they start to come in or before they even have a chance to erupt can prevent pain and complications entirely.
Abscesses can develop between an impacted wisdom tooth and the flap of gum tissue that partially covers it and can cause serious health problems. Even if they aren't symptomatic, wisdom teeth need to be removed to prevent problems like abscesses and infections.
Wisdom teeth can push on the other teeth in your mouth, leading to a number of problems like tooth decay and tooth damage, which could cause you pain. To avoid damage and pain, it is best to have the wisdom tooth removed as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If wisdom teeth are not removed, several problems can arise:
- Wisdom teeth can damage other teeth by pushing against them and causing overcrowding or misalignment.
- Wisdom teeth are challenging to clean, so even an oral care routine is unlikely to prevent tooth decay.
- Wisdom teeth can cause pericoronitis, an infection of the gums and tissues around the tooth. Partially impacted wisdom teeth are most likely to develop this infection. Bacteria build up around the soft tissue and cause inflammation.
- Wisdom teeth can also result in cysts forming in the jawbone. The condition occurs when fluid gathers between the crown and enamel of an impacted tooth.
Wisdom tooth removal is a relatively common dental treatment that lasts for about an hour. The first step is to have an x-ray of your jaw, which will help your dentist determine the location of your wisdom tooth. Next, the dentist will administer local anaesthesia to numb the area around the wisdom tooth.
As soon as you’re numb, your dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue and remove any bone that’s blocking the tooth. They’ll then divide the tooth into smaller sections and remove the entire tooth, root pieces, and any excess bone. Finally, they’ll stitch up the wound and place gauze over it to stop the bleeding and promote healing.
One of the most common dental procedures is wisdom teeth removal. While the surgery is typically safe and complications are rare, it can result in some pain and discomfort afterwards. There are a few things you can do to help manage the pain.
First, your dentist will likely prescribe you pain medication. Be sure to take it as directed. You can also hold an ice pack or cold compress against your cheek to help numb the area. Avoid putting ice directly on your face, as this may cause an ice burn.
Finally, if you have been prescribed antibiotics, take them as directed to help prevent infection. If you experience any severe pain, swelling, or bleeding, contact your dentist immediately. With proper care, your mouth should heal quickly, and you’ll be back to your usual self in no time.
Wisdom teeth removal costs may vary based on factors like complexity level and how many wisdom teeth have to be extracted. The average price starts at around $300-$500 per tooth. We recommend scheduling a consultation appointment at Brabham Smiles so that we can perform a thorough examination and provide you with a more accurate cost estimate.
If you have a general dental extras cover, your health insurance policy may be able to cover the cost of wisdom teeth removal. However, surgical removal of wisdom teeth may require a major dental extras cover. Please get in touch with your health fund provider to find out if you are covered for wisdom teeth removal.
