Gold Coast Tooth Extraction and Wisdom Tooth Removal
In some instances, a tooth cannot be repaired. The best solution may be a full tooth extraction. Our team at Martin Dental are experts in tooth extractions including wisdom tooth removal.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in and the ones least needed for good oral health. They generally develop from 17 years of age but can also appear later in life, or sometimes not at all.
Our jaws are smaller than our ancestors so quite often we do not have sufficient room for our wisdom teeth to fit in our mouths. Problems can therefore arise when the wisdom teeth begin to develop. They can become compacted when they do not have sufficient space to come through and therefore grow in incorrect directions. This can then cause damage to surrounding teeth and removal of the impinging wisdom teeth is required.
In the Chair Removals and Extractions
Our team is highly skilled in all extractions including Wisdom Teeth. If your Wisdom teeth present as a difficult extraction, we may refer you to a specialist dental surgeon. For those who experience anxiety with extractions, we offer Penthrox to help with anxiety and nerves. This effective and inexpensive form of sedation allows you to drive home after your visit as it is promptly removed from your system without any leftover grogginess.
