Wisdom Teeth Removal Caringbah
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that live far back in your mouth. They erupt at a fairly late stage in life, and by that time all the other teeth would have come in and settled comfortably in the available space on your jaw. When the wisdom teeth come in, they typically jostle and push their way through and then put pressure on the other neighbouring teeth. If there is insufficient space, this often leads to problem. The wisdom teeth can get impacted and cause toothache, decay, gum diseases, etc.
It is a good idea to schedule a check-up if your wisdom tooth is coming in. Our dentist will be able to recommend if the tooth needs to be extracted. It is easier to remove the wisdom tooth in the early stages before the roots are fully formed.

When is it time to remove your wisdom teeth?
There are few reasons why your dentist might suggest that you extract your wisdom tooth. It is best to have a dental check-up during your late teens to identify which molars are likely to cause problems so you can prevent complications further down the road.
Not enough space
Most of the time, wisdom teeth issues are because of insufficient space to accommodate all of the teeth. If the jaw begins to curve where the wisdom teeth are going to develop in, you are most likely to experience problems with respect to not having sufficient space.
When the wisdom teeth come in, they can push against other teeth and get impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a lot of pain and discomfort in your jaw and gums. Get it checked by our dentist to determine if they need to be removed.
Gum diseases and tooth decay
Since wisdom teeth live very far back in the gum line, it can be difficult to clean them properly. Without proper brushing and flossing, food debris can get trapped for back in the mouth and lead to decay and gum diseases. It may be a good idea to remove the wisdom teeth in this case to allow for proper dental and oral hygiene.
