Our St Kilda Wisdom clinic is situated in the heart of St Kilda
Wisdom teeth are the third or final set of molars that grow during the late teens or early 20s. If your teeth are misaligned, they can put pressure on surrounding teeth and crowd the mouth, which makes it difficult for the tooth to erupt. When a wisdom tooth is impacted due to inadequate space in the mouth, the dentists at Chapel Gate Dental can provide wisdom tooth removal in St Kilda. We will examine your general oral health and take an x-ray to determine the exact condition of your wisdom teeth. Based on our findings, we may recommend removal to avoid uncomfortable symptoms.
While not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed, there are clear signs that indicate wisdom teeth removal may be necessary, such as impaction and pain. When wisdom teeth become impacted, they don’t have enough room to grow properly, which can lead to pain, infection, swelling and jaw issues. X-rays may also reveal that the wisdom teeth could pose future problems to surrounding teeth, causing issues such as crowding, misalignment or decay. Regular dental check-ups can help to monitor wisdom teeth development and identify when wisdom teeth removal is necessary.
Wisdom teeth can cause serious issues and complications, especially when they erupt. Below are some common reasons for requiring wisdom teeth extraction:
The procedure for our wisdom teeth removal in St Kilda involves the following steps:
As the procedure is performed under anaesthesia, you won’t experience pain during the wisdom teeth extraction itself. Afterward, some discomfort and swelling can be expected, but pain can be managed with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers.
