Wisdom Teeth – The Problem

The wisdom tooth (or third molar) is the very last to erupt into the mouth and this usually happens from about 18 years of age. For most people there is not enough room in the mouth to allow normal eruption. Wisdom teeth can become impacted onto the tooth in front or backwards into the jaw bone. This can lead to frequent infections in the area immediately surrounding the wisdom tooth and results in constant episodes of pain. If left untreated this infection can spread into the blood stream resulting in significant health problems. Additionally, decay can also form in the adult tooth that sits in front of the wisdom tooth and this tooth may be lost as well.

Brisbane Wisdom Tooth Removal – Our Expertise

Wisdom teeth extractions can be more difficult than other extractions and as such your normal dentist may not perform these procedures and refer you to a specialist and the costs can be quite high. At Brookwater Dental, Springfield we use the services of Dr Priyesh Amin who is a general dentist with a special interest in the safe removal of wisdom teeth. He has performed many extractions for patients all over Brisbane, Ipswich and the Gold Coast both in the chair and in hospital.

The Procedure – What is involved

Often the wisdom tooth has not erupted into the mouth and it is necessary to expose the wisdom tooth first. Occasionally, the bone surrounding the wisdom tooth also needs to be gently removed. Sometimes the tooth needs to be divided into multiple pieces in order to remove it. If the wound is wide open then we need to place stiches to achieve closure and these will dissolve away after about one week.

Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removal in Brisbane

Being a more complex procedure, the cost of surgical removal of wisdom teeth is higher than a standard extraction. Lower wisdom teeth generally cost more than upper wisdom teeth. We encourage you to make a consultation appointment with our dentists as we have all the xray equipment required to diagnose wisdom teeth issues, show you and provide you with a quote on the spot. If you decide you would prefer a General Anaesthesia we can also provide you all additional costs and organise the entire booking process for this.
