Emergency wisdom teeth removal Perth
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Also called third molars, Wisdom teeth usually grow at the back of your mouth and can cause a number of problems.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure, but it’s not always necessary. Some Wisdom teeth come in without causing any problems, while others may only need to be removed if they’re not growing in correctly. However, Wisdom teeth that are impacted (stuck under the gum) or partially erupted (partially exposed) are more likely to require removal.
Wisdom teeth extractions are usually done by a dentist, and the procedure is typically done under local anesthesia. Recovery from tooth extractions usually takes a few days, and most people can return to their normal activities within a week.
How is wisdom teeth removal performed?
Removing wisdom teeth is typically performed by a dentist, and the procedure is usually done under local anesthesia. During the procedure, your dentist will make an incision in your gums to expose your Wisdom teeth. Once the Wisdom teeth are exposed, your dentist will use a tool to loosen the tooth and then extract it.
In some cases, your Wisdom teeth may be removed in pieces. If your Wisdom teeth are impacted, your dentist may need to remove some bone around the tooth before extracting it.
After your Wisdom teeth have been removed, your gums may be sutured (stitched) closed. You will likely be given a gauze pad to bite down on to help control bleeding.
What is the recovery like after wisdom teeth extraction?
Recovery from Wisdom teeth removal usually takes a few days, and most people can return to their normal activities within a week. During your recovery, you will likely experience some swelling and pain. Your dentist may prescribe pain medication to help you manage your symptoms.
It’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions for caring for your mouth after the procedure. This may include using a special mouthwash, taking antibiotics, and avoiding hard or crunchy foods.
Most people make a full recovery within a few days and experience no long-term complications from Wisdom teeth removals.

How much does wisdom teeth removal cost?
The cost of removing your wisdom teeth can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the type of anesthesia used, the number of teeth being removed, and whether the procedure is performed in an office or a hospital.
Some dental insurance plans may cover part or all of the cost of Wisdom teeth removal. However, it’s important to check with your insurance provider to see if your particular plan provides coverage for this procedure.
What are the risks and benefits of extracting wisdom teeth?
The risks of Wisdom teeth removal include bleeding, infection, and damage to the surrounding teeth. However, these risks are relatively rare and usually only occur if the procedure is not performed properly.
The benefits of extracting wisdom teeth include preventing pain, gum disease, and other dental problems that can be caused by impacted or crooked Wisdom teeth.
