Wisdom Teeth usually start to move and push through the gumline in the late teens or twenties, although sometimes these large molars get stuck, which can cause noticeable discomfort and even infection. If you are experiencing pain in the back of your mouth or having difficulty brushing and flossing between gaps, speak with the dentists at Littlehampton Dental before any serious symptoms occur.
Pain Relief for Wisdom Tooth Pain
Supermarket variety painkillers can assist with mild, short-term pain. However removal may be necessary to prevent any ongoing pain or future problems, such as gum infection, cysts or overcrowding. For simple cases, numbing of the gums with a local anaesthetic is all that is required before removing wisdom teeth. For deeper or more complex removals, a surgical procedure may be required. Adelaide dentist Dr Evan routinely performs wisdom teeth removal under general anaesthetic at some of our local hospitals.
