Wisdom teeth are the large teeth at the back of the jaw that come out last, often between the ages of 17-25. However, everyone is different and there are cases where they come through at a much later age or not at all. At Cranbourne Dental Centre, we understand the discomfort wisdom teeth can bring and our team works towards ensuring our clients understand the process of removal and through discussion, we strive to ensure our clients feel at ease.
For most people, there is not enough room to accommodate the wisdom teeth and common problems that can arise are:
- Swelling and infection
- Difficulty in opening mouth
- Decay of the wisdom teeth as they are difficult to clean
- Rubbing of cheek and/or tongue
- Harbouring of bacteria which later causes gum disease
At Cranbourne Dental Centre, we will assess your dental status and give you advise whether or not to have wisdom teeth removed. We will then go through the procedure with you in great detail.
