Five Dock ; Wisdom Teeth Removal and Oral Surgery Procedures

Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to erupt in the mouth and often cause problems and require removal.  We provide oral surgery procedures for Five Dock and surrounding suburbs.

Wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 16-20 years or even older.  If the jaws are large enough to accommodate these teeth, they can erupt into a functional position and not cause problems provided they are taken care of and well maintained.  However, more often we see wisdom teeth, which are completely or partially trapped under gum and bone (impacted wisdom teeth) due to inadequate space in the jaws.  Impacted wisdom teeth often cause pain and infection and for this reason require removal.  The diagram below shows some of the more common symptoms which may occur if you have an impacted wisdom tooth.
