WISDOM TEETH & TOOTH EXTRACTION
Our main goal at Martin Place Dental Clinic is to help you preserve your teeth for as long as possible. However, there are times where a tooth has sustained damage beyond repair and tooth extraction is the only option available.
Wisdom tooth extraction
Wisdom teeth are a set of third molars, that normally start to appear in your late teens. For most people, they do not cause any problems, but in some cases, they need to be removed.
The main reason for having a wisdom tooth extraction is because they have become stuck (impacted) and there is no room for them in your mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause ongoing pain, become infected, or cause damage to neighboring molars.
Wisdom teeth no longer provide a useful function and if they are causing a problem, then it’s better to have them removed. Unlike regular teeth, extracting wisdom teeth usually requires a surgical approach. If wisdom teeth are causing ongoing pain we strongly recommend making an appointment with the dentists at Martin Place Dental Clinic to assess and plan the best option for their removal.
Removing a tooth can vary from a simple tooth extraction to a complicated surgical procedure. An initial consult with one of our dentists will involve discussing the options available, and which one is best suited to your needs.
We are open 5 days a week.
