What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge during your late teens or early twenties and can cause various dental issues, including overcrowding and impaction.

The number of wisdom teeth can vary, but there are usually two in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw, with some individuals having more, fewer, or none.
While some wisdom teeth may emerge without issue, others may require extraction or other treatments to alleviate any discomfort or prevent further complications.

IS WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL PAINFUL?
Yes, wisdom teeth removal can be painful. However, the discomfort should be temporary, and the pain can usually be managed with medication if necessary. The amount of pain experienced will depend on the complexity of the procedure and the type of anesthesia used.
HOW LONG DOES A WISDOM TEETH SURGERY TAKE?
The duration of a wisdom teeth removal procedure in Perth depends on several factors, such as the complexity of the surgery and the number of teeth to be removed. Typically, the procedure can take up to an hour on average, but in some cases, it may take as long as two hours or even more.
CAN I GO TO WORK THE NEXT DAY AFTER WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION?
It is recommended that you take at least one day off from work after wisdom tooth extraction so that your body can rest and recover. Additionally, you may want to avoid strenuous activity and physical exertion for at least 48 hours after your procedure.
CAN A REGULAR DENTIST PULL WISDOM TEETH?
Yes, a regular dentist can typically pull wisdom teeth. However, it is important to consult your dentist to determine if they can safely perform the procedure. Additionally, some dentists may refer you to an oral surgeon if the extraction is more complex.
DOES REMOVING WISDOM TEETH CHANGE FACE SHAPE?
In some cases, removing wisdom teeth can change your face shape as the teeth are no longer there to provide structural support. However, this effect is typically minimal and temporary and should not be a cause for concern.
DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO EXTRACT WISDOM TEETH?
Wisdom teeth are the third molars in the rear of our mouths, and they don’t always need to be extracted as long as they’re healthy, have fully grown in, are biting appropriately, and can be cleaned as part of routine oral care.
CAN AN IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH KILL YOU?
Aside from inappropriate touch, there are additional ways that impacted wisdom teeth impair surrounding teeth, particularly when it comes to the transmission of dangerous germs that may cause pain and, in some cases, life-threatening infections. The majority of these diseases begin and spread without warning.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T REMOVE IMPACTED WISDOM TEETH?
A partly erupted wisdom tooth can develop pericoronitis, a bacterial infection, if you don’t have them removed. A wisdom tooth that fails to erupt, on the other hand, might produce a cyst, which can harm bone and gum tissue. Wisdom teeth are commonly removed due to their crooked appearance.
ARE YOU AWAKE FOR WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL?
During the tooth extraction, you are awake. Although there will be some pressure and movement, there should be no discomfort: anesthesia and sedation.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET YOUR WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTED WITHOUT SLEEPING?
You do not have to be put to sleep to have your wisdom teeth removed. The wisdom teeth extraction can be done while the patient is awake and the mouth is numbed with a local anaesthetic.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR WISDOM TEETH THAT HAVE BEEN IMPACTED TO HEAL?
Your mouth might take up to six weeks to recover fully. You won’t open your mouth generally for approximately a week, so that soft meals will be required. You may have some discomfort, bleeding, and edema following surgery.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL TREATMENT?
You’ll first receive some numbing techniques. It might be local anaesthetic (you’ll be aware and may feel pressure but not pain), sedation (you’ll be awake but have a reduced level of consciousness and won’t recall anything), or general anaesthesia (you’ll be fully unconscious and won’t remember anything). The kind you receive is determined by how tough the dentist or surgeon believes the surgery will be, as well as your level of anxiety. It’s important to discuss this with your dental team ahead of time since, depending on the type of anaesthesia you’ll be having, you’ll be recommended to avoid from eating or drinking for a particular number of hours before the surgery.
