Wisdom teeth (also known as third molar) are usually the last teeth to erupt in the mouth and are located at the back of the mouth.
There are many reasons to remove wisdom teeth:
- Wisdom teeth can erupt in abnormal angle and can damage the adjacent teeth
- As wisdom teeth are located at the back of the mouth, they can attract more plaque which can lead to gum infection
- Due to the location of wisdom teeth in the mouth, they tend to develop teeth decay more readily
At Murraylands Dental Care we can remove wisdom teeth under local anaesthetic without causing any pain.
For those who are very anxious, we can organize wisdom teeth extraction under sedation in hospital.
