Wisdom Teeth Removal in Noosa

young woman smiling at dentistWisdom teeth, also known as third molars, emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood and are located at the back of the mouth. These teeth are often associated with complications that require their removal. Here are some reasons why wisdom teeth may need to be extracted:

  • Impaction
  • Misalignment
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Infection and gum disease
  • Cysts and tumours
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Sinus issues
  • Difficulty in oral hygiene

Given these potential complications and space limitations, many dentists and oral surgeons recommend preventive removal of wisdom teeth.

The timing for wisdom teeth removal varies depending on individual circumstances. However, it is typically recommended in late adolescence or early adulthood before complications arise. Early removal can prevent the issues mentioned above and minimise potential discomfort.


Consultation & Evaluation Process

Before wisdom tooth removal, a comprehensive consultation and evaluation take place. Here’s what patients can expect during this process at Morton Dental:

Medical and Dental History Review: The dentist will review the patient’s medical and dental history, including preexisting conditions, allergies, medications, and past dental treatments.

Symptom Assessment: You’ll be asked about wisdom tooth-related symptoms, such as pain, swelling, or discomfort.

Clinical Examination: A thorough clinical examination of the mouth will be conducted, including a visual inspection of the wisdom teeth and surrounding area. The position, eruption status, and overall health of the wisdom teeth will be assessed.

X-rays or Imaging: X-rays are typically taken to obtain a clear view of the wisdom teeth’s position, size, and orientation. These images help determine if the teeth are impacted, misaligned, or causing other complications.

Discussion of Findings: After the examination and review of X-rays, the dentist will discuss their findings with the patient. They will explain the current status of the wisdom teeth and whether removal is recommended.

Treatment Options and Risks: The available treatment options, including wisdom tooth removal, will be discussed. The benefits, potential risks, and necessity of the procedure will also be explained.

Anaesthesia and Sedation Options: If removal is recommended, the patient will be informed about the types of anaesthesia or sedation available. Preferences and concerns can be discussed at this stage.

Cost and Insurance: The patient will receive information about the cost of the procedure, insurance coverage, and payment options. Financial concerns can also be addressed during this discussion.

Pre-Operative Instructions: Patients will be provided with pre-operative instructions, including dietary restrictions, medication guidelines, and advice on preparing for the procedure.
