Wisdom Teeth Removal in Corio
It’s important that the positioning of your wisdom teeth is looked at, preferably during your late teenage years. This is done to determine if they’ll comfortably fit inside your jaw or if they could end up causing damage to your other teeth.
If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort where your wisdom teeth are, make an appointment with Corio Dental Surgery to determine if wisdom teeth extraction may be necessary. Our dentist will examine your teeth and let you know if you require a wisdom teeth removal procedure. This may also involve taking an x-ray of your mouth to view the position of your wisdom teeth.
If your wisdom teeth suddenly start to cause you severe pain, our clinic is also available seven days a week to provide wisdom dental emergency services when needed.
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third molars in a person’s jawbone and are located at the very back of both sides of both the top and bottom rows of teeth. They’re the last teeth that start to appear in a person’s mouth, and they normally appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Very often, wisdom teeth are too big to comfortably fit in the jaw, which usually leads to dental issues. This is why wisdom teeth extraction is often required.
