Wisdom Teeth Removal

Do you need your wisdom teeth removed? If you’re seeking expert guidance and a personalised approach to your oral health, look no further than Moorooka Dental Care.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. They get their name because they’re the last teeth to come in, and they’re considered more mature than the other teeth.

Most people have four wisdom teeth, one in each corner of the mouth. But some people are born without wisdom teeth, or they may lose them due to injury or disease.

Despite their drawbacks, wisdom teeth do have some benefits. They can help with chewing and biting, and they may help protect the back teeth. Wisdom teeth can also help with speech, since they provide more space in the mouth.

When Is a Wisdom Tooth Removal Necessary?

There are many factors to consider when making the decision whether or not to remove wisdom teeth. The most important factor is whether or not the teeth are causing problems.

If wisdom teeth are not causing any problems, they may not need to be removed. However, if the teeth are impacted (stuck in the jawbone), infected, or causing pain, they may need to be removed.

Other factors that may influence the decision to remove wisdom teeth include:

  • The patient’s age
  • The size and position of the teeth
  • The patient’s overall health
  • The patient’s dental health

Wisdom Teeth FAQs

When can I eat solid food after wisdom teeth removal?

The timeline for reintroducing solid food after wisdom teeth removal can vary, but generally, it’s advisable to stick to a soft or liquid diet for the first few days. This allows your mouth to heal without excessive strain.

You can gradually introduce solid foods as your comfort level improves, typically after a few days. Start with easily chewable options like scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, yogurt, and well-cooked pasta. Remember, listen to your body, avoid foods that could potentially disrupt the healing process or cause discomfort, and ensure you follow the post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery.

Can I work the day I have my wisdom teeth removed?

It’s generally recommended to take a day off from work on the day of your wisdom teeth removal. The procedure itself might require local or general anaesthesia, which can leave you feeling groggy or disoriented afterward. Additionally, there’s a possibility of experiencing discomfort, swelling, and even minor bleeding during the initial hours after the surgery. Taking the day off allows you to rest, recover, and manage any potential side effects without the added stress of work commitments.

Every individual’s recovery experience is different, so while some people might feel well enough to work the next day, others might require a bit more time. It’s a good idea to consult with your oral surgeon or dentist about your specific situation and get their recommendation on when you can comfortably return to work.

What are the possible risks of wisdom teeth removal?

Wisdom teeth removal, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks and potential complications. It’s important to discuss these risks with your oral surgeon or dentist before undergoing the procedure. Some possible risks of wisdom teeth removal include:

Bleeding: Some bleeding is normal after the extraction, but excessive or prolonged bleeding may require medical attention. Contact your dental clinic immediately if you experience heavy bleeding that doesn’t stop.

Infection: Infection can occur at the surgical site, leading to pain, swelling, and possibly the need for additional treatment. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your dental clinic immediately.

Nerve damage: The roots of wisdom teeth are often close to nerves in the jaw. In some cases, nerve damage can occur during the extraction, leading to numbness or tingling in the lips, tongue, or cheeks.

Dry socket: This is a painful condition that can occur when the blood clot that forms in the socket where the tooth was removed becomes dislodged or dissolves prematurely, exposing the bone and nerves.

Damage to adjacent teeth: During the extraction process, nearby teeth or dental work can be damaged.

It’s worth noting that many wisdom teeth extractions are routine and uncomplicated. Your treating dentist will provide you with pre-operative and post-operative instructions to minimise these risks and ensure a smooth recovery. If you experience severe or persistent symptoms after the procedure, it’s important to contact our clinic for guidance.

What should I do after my wisdom tooth extraction?

If you are one of the many people who have had their wisdom teeth removed, you know that the recovery process can be a little daunting. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your recovery and get back to your normal routine as soon as possible:

  • Make sure you are well-rested before your surgery. This will help you recover more quickly.
  • Take it easy in the days following your surgery. Don’t try to do too much, and avoid strenuous activity.
  • Drink plenty of fluids in the days following your surgery. This will help keep you hydrated and speed up the healing process.
  • Eat soft, bland foods in the days following your surgery. This will help minimise any pain or discomfort you may experience.
  • Ice your jaw regularly in the days following your surgery. This will help reduce swelling and inflammation.
  • If you have any pain or discomfort, take over-the-counter pain medication as needed.
  • Follow your dentist’s instructions for post-operative care. This will help ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.

By following these tips, you can make the recovery process after wisdom teeth extraction a little easier.

I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.

I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.

I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.

Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.

The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit 🙂

I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.

Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.

This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.

Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks

Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!
