Wisdom Teeth Services in Sydney

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that normally emerge between the ages of 17 and 21. For many, the eruption of their wisdom teeth comes with no difficulty, but for some, the emergence can come with a slew of problems that will require the teeth be professionally removed.

Why are they removed?

There is a wide variety of reasons that a dental professional may suggest wisdom teeth removal, but one of the most common reasons is due to impaction, which occurs when there is not enough room in the jawline for another set of molars, causing the teeth to erupt sideways.

Ensuring your comfort at all times

Pain or discomfort

Pain or discomfort can also be a cause for removal. This happens when the teeth grow at an angle and aren’t able to correctly erupt, or are causing problems or damage to surrounding teeth. See our team for more information on if you need a wisdom teeth extraction.
