Wisdom teeth are four molars at the back of the mouth that are the last adult teeth to appear. Most adults' mouths cannot accommodate all their wisdom teeth, so it is common to have them removed in their late teens or early twenties.
As wisdom teeth are the last of the adult teeth to develop, there tends to be limited space for them at the back of the mouth. What results is overcrowding, pain, wisdom teeth growing at various angles and the movement of the existing natural teeth to accommodate them.
Other factors for wisdom teeth extraction include:
Dr Borman will perform the wisdom tooth surgery at the local Private Day Hospital under general anaesthesia. During the surgery, an incision will be made in the gums of the affected area to expose the wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth are removed, and the incision is stitched back together.
Dr Borman’s expertise allows him to provide a quick and painless recovery. He will also recommend the best home practices for taking care of the affected area.
You will experience swelling and discomfort at the site of extraction and will need to rest to promote healing. Dr Borman will prescribe antibiotics and a bacterial mouthwash to prevent infection.
In the days after your surgery, you must avoid solid foods and be careful when brushing or flossing your teeth. In addition, taking pain medication and avoiding activity will help with the healing process.
