From late teens onwards, wisdom teeth can be a problem. Often there is not enough room to accommodate them in our mouth, in which case they are said to be impacted. In many cases we can remove these teeth at our practice painlessly under local anaesthetic.
The approximate cost for wisdom tooth removal varies but is around $150-350. The cost of the consult ($50) and OPG xray ($100) are additional.
Wisdom teeth are also known as 3rd molars, and generally come through between the ages of 17 and 25. Most people have 4 wisdom teeth, although some have fewer. Fun Fact: If you are missing other teeth genetically, then the chance of having missing wisdom teeth is higher.
Wisdom teeth are extracted for two general reasons: either the wisdom teeth have already become impacted, or the wisdom teeth could potentially become problematic if not extracted.
Potential issues caused by the presence of properly grown-in wisdom teeth include infections caused by bits of food trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective.
Such infections may be frequent, and cause considerable pain and medical danger. Other reasons wisdom teeth are removed include misalignment which rubs up against the tongue or cheek causing pain, potential crowding of the remaining teeth (a result of there being not enough room on the jaw or in the mouth), as well as orthodontics.
Having a tooth removed especially a wisdom tooth is not the most pleasant experience but here at Chermside Dental we aim to make the unwelcome task much more manageable for you and your family with our skilled, caring and dedicated staff.
