Wisdom tooth under gum

Wisdom Teeth Extractions
in Meadowbank & Ryde, West Ryde

Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molar, are the last teeth to push through the gums. They usually erupt from the gums between the ages of 17-24. Some wisdom teeth do not come through fully and get stuck, causing other teeth to move and become difficult to clean. In some cases, the tooth can lean against another tooth, causing pain.

What to Expect

Most upper wisdom teeth can be removed easily under a local anaesthetic. Lower wisdom teeth can be more difficult to remove. Removing a wisdom tooth can involve cutting the gum to uncover your tooth, removing bone around the tooth, and dividing your tooth with a drill.

At Meadowbank Family Dental, our years of experience help you feel comfortable and relaxed in the dentist’s chair before performing any procedures. Our dentists are skilled at removing wisdom teeth and providing you with the best results.
