Wisdom Teeth Removal

Ensure Your Oral Well-Being with Wisdom Teeth Removal, Protecting Your Smile for Years to Come

Wisdom Teeth Removal Waurn Ponds, Geelong

Wisdom teeth removal is a simple and standard procedure that your dentist can perform. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth, typically appearing between the ages of 17 and 25.

Wisdom teeth can cause several problems if not adequately cared for, including pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. Wisdom teeth removal is often recommended to prevent these problems from occurring.

The procedure is typically quick and straightforward, and most patients experience only minor discomfort afterwards. If you think you may need wisdom teeth removal, talk to your dentist about the best course of action for you.

Why Do I Need To Remove My Wisdom Teeth?

One of the most common questions our Geelong patients ask our dentists is whether or not they need to have their wisdom teeth removed.

The answer, unfortunately, is not always clear-cut. Wisdom teeth removal is typically recommended when the wisdom teeth are causing problems such as pain, swelling, or impaction. Wisdom teeth can also crowd or damage other teeth and contribute to gum disease.

In some cases, wisdom teeth removal may be recommended even if the wisdom teeth are not currently causing any problems. This is because wisdom teeth that are impacted or poorly aligned have a higher risk of developing problems in the future.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to remove wisdom teeth is one that a qualified dentist should make after careful examination and discussion with the patient.

Some of the reasons why you  may need wisdom teeth extraction include:


Because the wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, and your permanent teeth are already positioned, the eruption of these molars can cause the positions of these teeth to shift and cause crowding. Crowding makes brushing and flossing more difficult and increases the likelihood of developing cavities and affecting a person’s bite, which may require orthodontics to correct.

Damage to nearby teeth

Inadequate space in the jaw can cause the lower wisdom teeth to erupt at an angle that contacts the adjacent tooth. In cases like these, the wisdom teeth are often difficult to keep clean, and cavities are likely to develop in the wisdom tooth and the adjacent tooth because of the contacting surfaces.


Many persons only really take not of their wisdom teeth when they experience pain. Pain associated with wisdom teeth can be debilitating, causing head and earaches and restricting a person’s ability to open their mouth.

Inflamed gums

When wisdom teeth erupt at an angle and contact adjacent teeth horizontally, the gums become swollen and make cleaning difficult. Appearing as reddish areas along the gum line, these areas of inflammation are often sore or painful to touch, preventing proper brushing and flossing, and possibly leading to cavities and tooth decay.

Sinus problems

The upper wisdom teeth are close to the sinuses behind the nose. When they grow, the roots and teeth may pressure the sinuses, causing sinus headaches or sinus infections.

Second, you should eat a light meal before your appointment so that you are not too hungry afterwards. Finally, you should plan on taking it easy for the rest of the day after your procedure.

Why do I need to remove my wisdom teeth?

There are a few different reasons why someone might need to have their wisdom teeth removed. One reason is that there may not be enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to come in without crowding other teeth. This can cause pain and discomfort, as well as an increased risk of cavities and gum disease. Additionally, wisdom teeth can sometimes come in at an awkward angle, which can make them difficult to brush and clean properly. This can also lead to problems down the road.

What is the recovery process like?

Recovery from wisdom teeth removal varies from person to person, but generally speaking, it is a fairly quick and easy process. Most people experience some pain and swelling immediately after surgery, but this can be controlled with medication. It is important to eat soft foods and take it easy for the first few days after surgery. Most people return to their normal activities within a week.
