What Are Wisdom Teeth and Why Do They Need to Be Removed?

Wisdom teeth are an extra set of back molar teeth that typically grow out without causing any issues. However, when they grow out incorrectly, such as sideways, partially, or without emerging from the gums, they become problematic and can potentially damage the mouth or other teeth. This usually occurs due to a lack of sufficient space in the mouth for wisdom teeth to occupy. 

Impacted or improperly outgrown wisdom teeth often result in painful symptoms that can hinder your daily activities such as eating, drinking, and talking. Some common symptoms include:

  • Intense pain and toothaches

  • Jaw pain or pressure

  • Constant bad breath

  • Tooth crowding

  • Swelling around the affected area

  • Infections of molars

When this occurs, wisdom tooth removal becomes necessary and must be done by a qualified dental professional to prevent further dental complications.

How Does Wisdom Tooth Removal Work?

The process of wisdom tooth removal begins with an analysis of the problematic wisdom tooth or teeth, which may include X-rays. 

Once the extraction has been planned by our dentists, you will have the option between general or localised anaesthesia for a painless and comfortable procedure. Under general anaesthesia, you will not be awake for the procedure and will awaken after it is complete. Localised anaesthesia is only applied to your mouth, but you will still feel no pain throughout the removal. 

Our dentists will then proceed to remove your wisdom teeth swiftly and carefully, making sure that you are comfortable and safe the entire time. 

After the wisdom teeth have been removed, you will be given some aftercare tips and medication to help speed up the recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of wisdom teeth removal can vary based on the severity of the problematic wisdom teeth. In general, removal for wisdom teeth can cost between $300 - $650 per tooth depending on complexity. 

To get an accurate cost estimate, book an in-person consultation with our wisdom tooth removal dentists at our Gold Coast clinic.

Recovery from a wisdom teeth removal procedure will usually take up to 2 weeks. During this time, you may experience some residual swelling and aches in your gums and cheek as a result of the removal. Rest assured that this is normal — if they are causing you discomfort, you can gently apply a cold pack of ice to the area for some quick relief.

We recommend steering clear of hard or tough foods that require you to chew, such as popcorn, crackers and jerky. Spicy or high-sugar content food should also be avoided, as consuming these foods will not only be painful, but they may also hinder your recovery. 

Instead of these foods, try to consume more soft food or liquids that are easier to consume without overagitating the recovering parts of your mouth. Examples of soft food are:

  • Mashed potatoes

  • Cottage cheese

  • Oatmeal

  • Tofu

  • Bananas

  • Steamed vegetables

Yes! In fact, our dentists may recommend it to avoid the need for multiple procedures and longer recovery times. By removing all your wisdom teeth in the same procedure, you can prevent future dental complications that would be caused by them.  

Typically, your dentist will inform you whether you need to remove all of your wisdom teeth and recommend their simultaneous removal, but you can also request for them to be removed at the same time.

You can bring along any X-rays or records of your dental history to your consultation with our dentists. However, they will need to have been recorded during the last 6 months for them to be accurate enough to be used in our evaluation of your teeth. 

Providing these materials can help to speed up the evaluation process and allow us to proceed with the removal process sooner.

Any consistent pain in your teeth and gums that does not go away after several days is usually a sign of a serious teeth issue. Additionally, if you experience headaches and jaw pain that originates from your teeth, it is likely that you have wisdom teeth that need to be removed. 

If you suspect that you need wisdom teeth removal, don’t put it off and risk it getting worse over time. It’s always a good idea to consult an expert dental professional and address it as soon as possible.
