Wisdom teeth generally erupt into the mouth between 18 and 24 years of age. However, one in four adults will not have enough room in their jaws to fit these teeth, which means other teeth become crowded as they force their way up. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause significant pain, or become infected with serious consequences.
Mosman Fine Dental can help relieve the pain and treat impacted wisdom teeth. We often start with a special jaw scan (OPG) to assess whether your wisdom teeth need to be removed or not. Dr Aden Tran is highly experienced in this area and performs wisdom teeth removal regularly in the comfort and safety of our practice. This is usually done using Sleep Dentistry (conscious IV sedation), whereby patients will be completely unaware of the procedure. Patients are then safely discharged home the same morning without the inconvenience of a hospital stay. We also ensure that your care extends beyond the procedure itself, as all cases are reviewed a fortnight later to ensure your recovery is progressing as expected.
