Wisdom Teeth Removal

Illustration of tooth extractionWhen it comes to the precision, attention, and gentle care that wisdom teeth removal requires, Rouse Hill Smiles ensures you feel comfortable throughout your treatment and take pride in their gentle care. Not only has Dr Teena been performing this surgery for over a decade, but our in-house, state-of-the-art technological equipment allows her to determine the scope of the extraction.

We put our patient’s needs first to deliver the highest-quality dental care available. If a case is deemed too complex or risky to undertake, Dr Teena is able to refer the patient to one of her recommended and trusted specialists.

What to Expect

Many patients associate wisdom teeth removal with pain and discomfort, however our professional and friendly dentist will take every step possible to ensure your recovery is as speedy as possible. We are happy to answer any questions and concerns prior to treatment to ensure you understand the process and are comfortable.

Once a consent form has been signed for Dr Teena to begin the procedure, she will start with the wisdom tooth extraction process. Depending on how many teeth require extraction, you can expect this procedure to take between 20 – 40 minutes to complete.

During this surgery, you will also be placed under local anaesthetic, however general anaesthetic  and IV sedation is also available to those who would prefer it. In-chair extractions are known for their quicker recovery process, and you can also expect a post-operative call from Dr Teena following your treatment to discuss any concerns and see how you are feeling.

When Do Wisdom Teeth Need to be Removed?

Problematic wisdom teeth are often extracted either before or after they erupt, with this process usually occurring during a patient’s late teens or early twenties. A wisdom tooth may need removing if:

  • It is stuck in the jaw and can’t erupt properly
  • The tooth contains signs of decay
  • It is causing pain or discomfort
  • The tooth is blocked by other teeth and there is no room for it to erupt
  • The tooth is irritating the gum, causing pain and swelling
