When Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Come Out?

Everyone’s wisdom teeth show themselves at different stages of their life, but they most often develop between the ages of 17 and 25. 

In an ideal world, wisdom teeth would grow out perfectly and correctly aligned, simply joining the party in your mouth. As they’re merely an additional set of third molars, there’s no harm in keeping them if they’re healthy. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth often become impacted or grow out misaligned, causing potential damage to your existing teeth. Because they’re also far back in your mouth, it’s hard to keep wisdom teeth clean — so they may decay or get infected.

But don’t worry — Vogue Dental Studios is here to help. Our knowledgeable and friendly dentists in Sydney can remove your wisdom teeth safely and without pain.

How Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Work?

Step 1: We’ll conduct a thorough examination during a consultation appointment. This may include taking an X-ray to determine the position, size, and shape of the wisdom teeth to be removed. Your dentist will then go through the procedure with you.

Step 2: Depending on how complex the extraction process is and whether your wisdom teeth are impacted, you may need to receive local anaesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth, or general anaesthesia, which makes you unconscious.

Step 3: Now comes the extraction; your dentist will make an incision in the gum and remove any bone covering the tooth. They may divide the tooth into sections to make it easier to remove. After removing the wisdom tooth, they’ll clean the area.

Step 4: The extraction site will be closed up to allow the area to heal. 

It’s normal to experience pain, swelling, and light bleeding after the procedure. But don’t worry — your Vogue dentist in Sydney will help you manage your teeth for a smooth recovery.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Sydney FAQs

Wisdom teeth are additional molars — back teeth — that develop last and the furthest back inside your mouth. These third molars are a normal part of mouth development and are the last set of adult teeth that will grow in.

Wisdom teeth need to be removed if they cause you pain or discomfort and if they will cause issues with your other teeth, such as teeth crowding or crooked teeth. Here are some other cases where wisdom teeth may need to be removed:

  • If the wisdom teeth are positioned sideways or protrude into the next tooth

  • If food gets trapped around the wisdom tooth/teeth, this may cause infection

  • If the wisdom tooth is not easily brushed or cleaned

  • If the wisdom tooth only comes partway through your gums

At Vogue Dental Studios in Sydney, we accept all private health funds. As a major dental procedure, wisdom teeth removal is usually covered by health insurance in Sydney, but it’s always best to check with your healthcare provider for your exact coverage. Book your consultation with us to receive an itemised breakdown and accurate cost estimation that you can use to consult your health fund. 

Wisdom teeth removal costs will vary for each individual. However, as a general pricing guide, wisdom teeth removal will likely cost between $300-650 per tooth.

After our thorough assessment and evaluation, we can provide an estimate of what you’ll pay for wisdom teeth removal at our Sydney studio. 

Many people have four wisdom teeth (two upper and two lower). But this isn’t a hard and fast rule, as some people only have two, and some don’t have any at all!

Yes! If you choose to do so and it is recommended by your dentist, you should be able to get all of your wisdom teeth removed in a single procedure. In many cases, this is the preferred option, as it will reduce your overall recovery time and the risk of developing infections and other complications later. Removing all your wisdom teeth at once is also more affordable than going in for multiple extractions.

Yes! If you have X-Rays taken of your teeth in the last six months, you can bring them to your consultation. This can save us some time as we can see the position of your wisdom teeth and get an idea of what kind of procedure is needed. Otherwise, we can thoroughly examine and X-Ray your teeth during your consultation. 

Some sure signs that it’s time to get your wisdom teeth removed are a pain in your jaws and gums. You may also get headaches due to the pressure on your teeth. Wisdom teeth removal may also be recommended as a part of orthodontic treatment. Wisdom teeth can cause crowding of teeth — and if left to develop, may result in your teeth becoming crooked. Your dentist or orthodontist may advise you to get your wisdom teeth removed to make space for your other teeth and to make sure your teeth remain straight. 

If you’re unsure whether you need wisdom teeth removal and you’re in Sydney, you can book a consultation with our professionals to find out. We’ll conduct a thorough examination to determine if you need wisdom teeth removal at our Sydney studio.

You can safely keep your wisdom teeth if they’re properly aligned and healthy, but it’s important to note that since they’re so far back in the mouth, it might be challenging to keep them clean. If you’re worried about plaque build-up, decay, or infection, it might be best to get them removed.
