SYDNEY WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL
IV Sedation Available
WITH IMPACTED WISDOM TEETH
- When wisdom teeth are impacted, causing the pressure on the gums to inflame them and eventually cause infection of the surrounding tissues on the top of the tooth. Their location at the back of your mouth predisposes them to impaction, because of the lack of space. Especially today, where preventative care allows people to enjoy complete health throughout our existing smile (and no premature tooth loss.)
- Dental infection can also cause inflammation, stiffness, and swelling of the jaw. Therefore, when someone has infected wisdom teeth, usually a very pronounced phlegm in the area is difficult to disguise. If you notice a foul taste or odour coming from that part of your mouth, it could be due to some type of an oral infection. It’s best to have it addressed as quickly as possible, before adjacent spaces are harmed.
DAMAGE TO NEARBY MOLARS
- Pressure and inflammation on the tooth can end up generating small pockets of infectious fluid called cyst, which can displace the tooth & affect other nearby tooth and bone structure. Pressure is also dangerous to neighbouring enamel, as it could cause those teeth to resorb (naturally shrink) or even threaten their vitality.
- If the dental cysts are not removed quickly they can begin to destroy tissues and bones as well as become severely infected with other teeth. Teeth removal generally also includes your dentist performing a treatment that addresses the dental adjacent cyst (for improved health.)
- Impacted, untreated wisdom teeth often cause swelling in the nearby molars, causing severe damage to both pieces if removal is not scheduled fairly quickly with your dentist. Removal of your dental cyst with the planned surgery improves bone health in that area. Recovery is typically the same as any other wisdom tooth removal treatment.
- It’s worth noting that during tooth development, it’s quite common for teeth to have a natural dental cyst (eruption cyst) around the root of the tooth. This developmental dental cyst usually goes away on its own after the tooth erupts. However, in the instance of impacted or infected third molars, it may not. The cyst itself can become a major factor in whether you need dental care.
- Impacted wisdom teeth will exert a lot of pressure on the tooth next to it, which can cause a chain of tooth displacement and cause clumping of the teeth by the pressure exerted from the teeth forward. Removing an impacted tooth creates less pressure for the improved health of your surrounding bite. Your dentist might also recommend speaking with an orthodontist if you don’t already have a dental retainer (to help preserve natural tooth placement.) Any removal doesn’t necessarily cause teeth to shift back into place.
- If you’re someone who wore braces in the past or recently completed orthodontic treatment, this complication could be cause for alarm. The constant pressure of third molars can cause shifting of your entire bite, resulting in orthodontic relapse and the need for re-treatment. As such, it’s important to schedule regular assessments to intercept possible complications before they ever have a chance to develop in the first place.
CAUSE OF WISDOM TOOTH DISCOMFORT
What causes the discomfort of impacted wisdom teeth?
Dental health is more to us than just straight, white teeth that you brush and floss each day. Sometimes dental pain is because of atypical anomalies in the way teeth develop or become lodged inside of the bone. If there’s discomfort coming from the back of your mouth on one or both sides, chances are you need to see your dentist to determine if oral surgery is necessary. The main cause of the painful wisdom teeth is the lack of space in the mandibular bone, causing the tooth to be placed incorrectly and trapped. However, there are times when the tooth manages to make its way and partially erupt, leaving a hole where the food bacteria can accumulate and cause a dental infection.
When these dental bacteria proliferate and begin to accumulate under the gum flap that has created the wisdom tooth, a tapered infection occurs that will subsequently cause swelling and dental pain in the entire area around the tooth.
Sometimes pain doesn’t seem localised to your tooth at all. It may present itself as headaches, TMJ discomfort, or earaches because of the proximity to the back of your mouth.
What else could be causing the discomfort?
Another possible associated dental problem is the pressure exerted by the tooth next to the flap that has the infection, causing trauma at the site and worsening the pain.
Finally, the dental pain of wisdom teeth can also be caused by the appearance of accesses in the area, that is, an accumulation of pus under the tooth of the impacted wisdom. When taking a dental X-ray we may see a fluid-filled cyst or pocket area surrounding the roots of the tooth.
Dental procedure isn’t just about addressing impacted teeth; it can also be for the health of your bone and gum tissues anywhere throughout your mouth. After all, your smile needs a healthy and stable foundation to support your smile. To remove the impacted wisdom teeth / wisdom tooth will address this issue straightaway.

ALL YOU NEED
What is the process to remove wisdom teeth?
Our doctors will first perform an X-ray of the area to correctly visualise the placement of the teeth and locate the infected area. Once you see the X-ray, we will be able to better decide which dental treatment is the right one to address the concern. Our dentist is happy to answer any questions related to the process, what to expect, and the recovery experience following your dental surgery.
In the case of requiring a dental surgical procedure with anaesthesia, our clinicians will inform you in advance so that everything flows on the day of the extraction. Please be sure to review any underlying health issues with us in advance, including allergies, past surgeries, or medications that you’re currently taking. If necessary, our dentist can collaborate with your other medical providers to ensure a safe wisdom tooth removal procedure and recovery.
What is Intravenous Conscious Sleep Dentistry?
Intravenous sedation is a procedure in which the patient will not feel any discomfort, nor will he remember anything that has happened during the dental procedure.
The dental patient during the removal will feel as if he is asleep, although he will really remain conscious all the time.
It is a type of sedation more expensive and difficult to find, but much more effective and faster than the rest.
Keep in mind that as part of your recovery, you will feel a bit drowsy.
Our dentist will require that you bring a trusted friend or family member to your dental procedure to escort you home afterward.
What is Inhalation Sedation Dentistry in Teeth Removal?
Inhalation sedation is one of the most commonly used anaesthetic methods in dentistry, being completely painless and allowing the patient to regain daily activity immediately after a dental procedure, waking up without any discomfort or side effects.
Inhalation sedation makes dental recovery a breeze, as it fully reverses itself following the completion of your dental visit.
This dental sedation option is preferable by many patients, as is gentle, light, and appropriate for a variety of dental procedures.
