Wisdom teeth are the third molars that normally erupt between the ages of 18 to 24 years of age. Sometimes they can come through without any problems, but often there is insufficient space in the mouth to allow them to come through properly. They may be impacted (growing the wrong way), poorly aligned, infected, or lack the room for adequate cleaning.
With early assessment of wisdom teeth (with x-rays), we can reliably predict if they will cause a problem in later life. This allows us to treat the wisdom teeth – sometimes before they even cause you problems.
The dentists and staff at Iconic Dentistry will give you lots of information on what to expect before, during and after having your wisdom teeth extracted. Our dentists are accredited to provide treatment in hospital. For your comfort, we are able to remove wisdom teeth under General Anaesthesia (whilst you are asleep). There are also other forms of sedation available such as: intravenous sedation, and oral sedation. Your dentist can discuss your options with you.
