Your Go-To Wisdom Teeth Removal Clinic in Sydney
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that come in when we’re between the ages of 17 and 25. For some people this growth happens much later in life. For very few, it doesn’t happen at all.
These extra molars were meant to help us chew food back when our mouths were able to comfortably accommodate 32 teeth. We have evolved such that today, most people only have the jaw capacity to handle 28. This means that if all the other teeth are present and healthy there may not be enough space for these.When Is Extraction Essential?
There are many reasons why it may be a good idea to have your wisdom teeth removed. Here are some of the primary reasons:
- When the teeth have partially protruded and are decayed.
- If they pose hygiene issues in that they are difficult to reach and clean.
- If they starts to ‘over-grow’. This occurs when either the upper or lower tooth has already been removed or is impacted and cannot come through. The opposite tooth then has nothing to bite against and will extend too far.
- If there is pain.
If you are unsure whether the removal of your wisdom teeth would be in your best interest, please seek the advice of knowledgeable dental care providers in Sydney.
