Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Campbellfield

wisdom tooth illustrationWisdom teeth removal is a common procedure that many individuals undergo to maintain oral health. If you’re considering this treatment, here’s what you need to know about wisdom teeth and how we at Hume Dental Hub approach their removal.

Understanding Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge, usually appearing in your late teens or early twenties. While some people have enough room in their mouth to accommodate these teeth, others may experience complications such as impaction, where the teeth do not fully erupt, or misalignment, which can affect adjacent teeth.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Removal is often recommended when:

  • Wisdom teeth are impacted or not fully erupted.
  • The teeth are angled in a way that could damage neighboring teeth.
  • There are infections or food impaction issues.

Our Treatment Approach

At Hume Dental Hub, we prioritise your comfort and safety. Most wisdom teeth extractions are performed right here in our practice using local anesthesia. For more complex cases, we may refer you to a trusted oral surgeon. Our team will provide you with all the information you need to prepare for and recover from the procedure, ensuring you understand every step of the process.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery typically spans 1-2 weeks. We advise patients to avoid smoking, using straws, and engaging in vigorous activities in the initial recovery days to prevent complications like dry socket—a condition where the blood clot at the extraction site is dislodged, exposing underlying bone.

Making an Informed Decision

We understand that the decision to remove wisdom teeth is significant. Our team is dedicated to discussing potential risks and benefits, helping you make an informed choice that’s right for your dental health.
