Wisdom Tooth Extraction

women at dental visit smilingWhile having wisdom teeth removed can bring about anxiety, at First Dental Studio, we’re proud to offer patients a relaxing experience when the time comes for removal.

Did you know that not all wisdom teeth are difficult to remove? In fact, the top wisdom teeth are frequently removed quickly and painlessly. We also have various sedation options so that you’ll be entirely comfortable during your time with us.

Here’s what you can expect during the process.

What to Expect

Wisdom tooth removal occurs most commonly in patients aged 18-25. When wisdom teeth come in, they can cause crowding problems that may result in pain, bite issues and misalignment due to their size. This is why they need to be removed in most cases.

We’ll begin by discussing exactly what’s going to happen so there aren’t any surprises and so you feel comfortable and relaxed. We’ll then administer anaesthetic to numb the area or gas sedation if you’d like.

Typically, the upper wisdom teeth are removed first, followed by the lower. Once all four have been removed, we’ll monitor you to make sure everything is healing properly immediately after. You’ll then be released to return home with a family member or loved one. You’ll come back for a visit with us in about two weeks to ensure everything has healed properly.

In the days after your visit, we recommend consuming mostly soft foods like smoothies or soup. Do your best not to chew foods with the rear of your mouth for the first week.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much does wisdom tooth extraction cost in Brisbane CBD?

Until we see you in the practice, it’s difficult to estimate an exact cost as your mouth needs to be fully inspected beforehand. We’re happy to offer free consultations so that you can come in and find out the exact price. You can also call us and we can provide you with a price range as well as discuss health insurance coverage.

How do I know if I’ll need to have my wisdom teeth extracted?

The only way to find out if you need a wisdom teeth extraction is to have a consultation with us. You’ll come in for an appointment and let us examine you. We’ll look at the placement of your wisdom teeth with an OPG x-ray which can be done bulk billed with no out-of-pocket cost if you have a Medicare card at a nearby x-ray clinic. From this information, we’ll discuss what we think is necessary with you and why making sure you feel fully informed before making a decision.

Is there pain involved in having your wisdom teeth taken out?

No matter which procedure you have with us, we want you to be comfortable. We will administer a local anaesthetic to your mouth before we start with your wisdom teeth extraction. We’ll only begin the procedure once you agree that you are fully numbed and ready to proceed.

How long does a wisdom tooth extraction take?

Wisdom tooth extraction can take anywhere from a few minutes to 1 hour. It really depends on how many wisdom teeth need to be extracted and the complexity of the case. It is one of the most common same-day procedures done here at First Dental Studio.

Are there certain situations in which you don’t have to have wisdom teeth extracted?

Some people don’t need to have their wisdom teeth extracted. If there is enough space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow in, and they come through the gums as they should, they will not need to be removed.
