Expert Wisdom Teeth Evaluation and Removal 

Located at the back of the mouth and typically emerging during adolescence, wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to develop. Due to limited space in the mouth, these teeth often fail to erupt properly or emerge at odd angles.

At Herriott Street Dental, our skilled dental professionals in Perth assess the condition of your wisdom teeth to determine whether removal is necessary. This preventive measure is often taken to avoid potential complications such as infections, overcrowding, and damage to adjacent teeth. Regular dental check-ups and early intervention play a crucial role in minimizing issues related to wisdom teeth, ensuring the maintenance of a healthier and more confident smile.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Process

When wisdom teeth fail to emerge correctly, they create spaces where food can accumulate, leading to plaque buildup, cavities, and infections. Moreover, their improper growth can cause neighboring teeth to shift and become overcrowded. In some cases, dental cysts and tumors may develop, necessitating surgical removal.

Orthodontic Considerations

For individuals undergoing orthodontic treatment, the removal of wisdom teeth is often one of the initial steps. This is especially pertinent for younger teens, as the procedure tends to be simpler and involves fewer post-operative complications.

Surgical Wisdom Teeth Removal

At Herriott Street Dental, we typically recommend either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation for wisdom teeth removal. Before making this decision, we engage in a thorough discussion with the patient and their parent(s), outlining the risks and benefits associated with each sedation option.

Post-Operative Care and Information

Following the wisdom teeth removal procedure, we provide detailed written post-operative instructions, along with a verbal review just before the patient is released to go home. Additionally, our website features comprehensive information that addresses most common questions and concerns.
