What Problems Can Wisdom Teeth Cause?

Wisdom teeth can cause the worst dental problems. They can become so painful that it becomes impossible to chew without screaming.

Impacted teeth

This happens when there is not enough room for your wisdom tooth to erupt fully. It gets stuck in the gum tissue or jawbone and can’t come in. Impacted teeth can cause pain, swelling, and infection.

The worst thing you can ever do to an impacted wisdom tooth is to ignore it. It would be best if you visited a Moorooka dentist immediately after you notice this impacted tooth.


Your teeth become crowded and misshapen. In worst-case scenarios, food particles get stuck in some tight corners. No matter how much you struggle, you won’t be able to get them out. Crowded teeth ruin your facial appearance.


Wisdom teeth are difficult to clean because they’re so far back in the mouth. This can lead to decay and cavities. A Moorooka dentist will help you clean the affected area, so you have no risk of decay.

Gum disease

If you ignore your wisdom tooth, it affects your gums. The tooth can weaken your gums and cause unnecessary bleeding.

Types of Wisdom Teeth

  1. Impacted Wisdom Teeth: These are the most common yet frustrating wisdom teeth. They are so painful and must never be ignored. Impacted wisdom teeth are stuck in the gum tissue or jawbone and can’t come in. They can cause severe pain, swelling, and infection.You cannot handle the impaction on your own, so don’t think about doing it. Instead, visit a dentist as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more painful it gets.
  2. Erupted Wisdom Teeth: This type of wisdom teeth has broken the gum line. The teeth can cause crowding and deterioration after erupting.Removing these teeth can be very tricky. Only a specialised dental surgeon can effectively remove them without any complications.

Note: Wisdom teeth can also be classified as being mesial or distal.

  • Mesial wisdom teeth are the ones that come in first. They’re usually the least problematic.
  • Distal wisdom teeth are the ones that come in last. They’re often the most problematic because they’re the hardest to reach and clean.

Our Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure in Brisbane

Initial Consultation & Treatment Plan

The first step is the initial consultation with our oral surgeon. During this appointment, they will take x-rays to determine the position of your wisdom teeth and if they need to be removed. They will also develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Removal Procedure

Our dental surgeon will make small incisions in your gums during the surgery. They remove teeth and bones. You’ll get stitches and gauze to bite to control bleeding.


Wisdom teeth extraction recovery takes a week. Soft foods and rest are required. Pain medicines and cold packs will minimise swelling.

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!
