    Impacted Wisdom Teeth in Brisbane

    Impacted wisdom teeth are a common dental issue where the third molars at the back of your mouth do not have enough room to grow or develop normally. These teeth often get trapped within your jawbone or gum, which can lead to pain, infection, and other complications. The team at Brisbane Dental Clinic understands that impacted wisdom teeth in Brisbane require urgent attention, as they can cause damage to nearby teeth and even lead to decay and gum disease.

    Furthermore, impacted wisdom teeth in Brisbane can be challenging to keep clean due to their location, making them more susceptible to these issues. Therefore, it’s crucial to seek immediate care from our experienced dental surgeons at Brisbane Dental Clinic if you’re experiencing any discomfort or symptoms related to impacted wisdom teeth in Brisbane.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    In most cases, wisdom teeth removal is not covered by Medicare Australia. It’s usually considered a dental procedure and is often covered by private dental insurance or paid out-of-pocket by the patient.

    The cost of removing all four wisdom teeth can vary widely based on location, complexity, anaesthesia, and the dental clinic. Please speak to our dentist to get a personalised estimate per your requirement.

    The idea of breaking the jaw to remove wisdom teeth is a misconception. In complex cases where wisdom teeth are impacted or deeply embedded, a surgical approach may involve removing a small amount of bone to access the teeth. This differs from breaking the jaw and is performed under anaesthesia for patient comfort.

    The healing time for wisdom teeth extraction sites can vary. Generally, initial healing occurs within a few weeks. The gum tissue usually closes within 1-2 weeks, while complete recovery of the extraction site and surrounding bone can take several months. Following post-operative care instructions is crucial for optimal healing.

    To clean wisdom teeth extraction sites:

    • Gentle Rinsing: Rinse with warm salt water after meals to clean the area and promote healing.
    • Avoid Disruption: Avoid vigorous swishing or spitting in the first 24 hours to prevent clot dislodging.
    • Soft Brushing: Gently brush the area, avoiding direct contact with the site for a few days after the surgery.
    • Oral Rinse: Use an antimicrobial mouthwash as recommended by your dentist.

    It’s possible to experience temporary bad breath after wisdom teeth removal due to factors like healing, limited oral hygiene immediately after surgery, and the presence of blood clots. Proper oral care, including gentle brushing, rinsing, and maintaining hydration, can help mitigate bad breath. If concerns persist, consult your dentist for guidance.

    Wisdom teeth removal surgeries are performed at various places, including:

    • Dental Clinics: General dentists or oral surgeons can perform wisdom teeth extractions in their clinics.
    • Oral Surgeon Offices: Specialists in oral surgery are trained for more complex cases.
    • Dental Hospitals: Specialised dental hospitals or clinics may focus on oral surgeries.

    The right time for wisdom teeth extraction varies for each individual. Generally, it’s recommended to consider extraction in late adolescence or early adulthood when the roots are less developed, making the procedure potentially easier and recovery faster. However, the timing depends on factors like:

    • Pain or Discomfort: If you’re experiencing pain, swelling, or discomfort due to your wisdom teeth, removal may be necessary regardless of age.
    • Impaction or Infection: If wisdom teeth are impacted, causing infection, cysts, or damage, removal might be needed as soon as possible.
    • Alignment and Crowding: If wisdom teeth are causing alignment issues or crowding, removal might be recommended before these problems worsen.
    • Preventive Measure: Some dentists recommend proactive removal to prevent future issues, especially if imaging shows potential problems.
    • Individual Factors: Each person’s dental development varies, so consulting a dentist for an evaluation is crucial in determining the ideal time for wisdom teeth removal based on your situation.

    No, being put to sleep (general anaesthesia) is not always necessary for wisdom teeth removal. The type of anaesthesia depends on factors like the complexity of the extraction, your anxiety level, and your dentist’s recommendations. In many cases, local anaesthesia, conscious sedation, or even no sedation can be used. Your dentist will discuss the options and help you choose the most suitable anaesthesia method for your comfort and the procedure’s requirements.

    Wisdom teeth can lead to various issues, including pain, infection, gum disease, overcrowding, damage to adjacent teeth, cysts or tumours, sinus problems, and challenges in oral hygiene.

    The level of discomfort experienced during wisdom teeth removal varies among individuals. Local anaesthesia and sedation are commonly used to minimise pain during the procedure. Afterwards, some soreness and swelling are normal, which can be managed with pain medications and proper care. At Brisbane Dental Clinic, our dentist will guide pain management and ensure you stay comfortable even after you leave the clinic.

    The duration to remove all four wisdom teeth depends on factors like the complexity of the extractions, your anatomy, and the sedation used. On average, the procedure can take around 45 minutes to an hour. However, it might be longer for more challenging cases.

    Your situation depends on whether you should get two or four wisdom teeth removed. If all your wisdom teeth are causing pain, discomfort, infection, or other issues, we recommend removing all four. However, if only one or two wisdom teeth are causing problems, we might advise removing only those.
