Wisdom teeth generally erupt between 17 and 21 years of age and are usually the last teeth to come through. As a result they can often erupt at odd angles and/or may be partially or fully impacted. This may make cleaning difficult, cause pain, infection, crowding, or damage to near by teeth. In many cases, this means a wisdom tooth extraction is necessary.
To determine the exact position of your wisdom teeth, a thorough exam is needed often with a combination of several x-rays.
The removal of wisdom teeth is usually a simple procedure. This can be performed under local anaesthesia, happy gas or at Buderim private hospital under general anaesthetic.
