Do You Need Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Research has shown that with evolution our jaws are getting smaller leaving little room for our third set of molars, the wisdom teeth. The most often encountered problem with wisdom teeth our dentists in Mooloolaba encounter is that they become impacted and cause pain or damage to the adjacent teeth, this means wisdom teeth extraction is needed.
Consequently, it is often necessary to perform wisdom teeth removal surgery. To assess the difficulty of the removal of these teeth, our Sunshine Coast dentists require a full mouth x-ray (OPG) to see the shape of the roots of the teeth and their proximity to the nerves and sinuses in our jaws. In some cases, referral to a dental specialist oral maxillofacial surgeon is needed to minimise damaging these structures, but most often our local dentists are able to perform the wisdom teeth extraction surgery to remove these teeth for you.
