Wisdom Teeth Removal
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:
