Many of our patients will ask us when they should have their wisdom teeth removed. Some will ask if they should have their wisdom teeth removed even if they are not causing problems. We at Laurea Dental will only perform our Wisdom Teeth Removal Robina procedure if it is in the best interest of the oral health of our patients.
If our patient has wisdom teeth that are healthy, have fully erupted, are in the proper position, and line up properly with the opposing teeth, wisdom teeth removal may not be necessary. It is important that wisdom teeth can be cleaned as part of the daily hygienic practices of our patients.
However, in the vast majority of cases, when our patients come complaining about wisdom teeth, it is because they have not grown in properly. The number one reason why we perform a Wisdom Teeth Removal Robina procedure is because a patient’s wisdom teeth did not have room to grow in properly and now causes problems with the rest of the teeth in the patient’s mouth. Because of lack of space, interrupting wisdom teeth can grow at awkward angles. In some cases, we have even seen wisdom teeth grow in horizontally.
We perform our Wisdom Teeth Removal Robina procedure when patients have wisdom teeth that do not completely emerge through the gums. Other scenarios include impacted wisdom teeth, or wisdom teeth that are trapped inside the jaw. Wisdom teeth that do not fully emerge are difficult to clean. Over time, they will attract bacteria, and they will lead to oral infections.
Our goal is to preform our Wisdom Teeth Removal Robina procedure before the wisdom teeth can fully take root. This way, the recovery time after the procedure is a lot quicker. Anyone who is experiencing pain, tooth infection, gum disease, or tooth decay associated with their wisdom teeth should contact us immediately and allow our professionals to set up an appointment to evaluate whether or not a Wisdom Teeth Removal Robina procedure is right for them.
