What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge, usually during late adolescence or early adulthood. Not everyone faces problems with their wisdom teeth, but for those who do, issues like overcrowding, misalignment, and discomfort are common. In certain cases, wisdom teeth may become impacted, meaning they cannot properly erupt through the gum line due to lack of space or incorrect positioning, leading to pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth.

Why Wisdom Teeth Removal Is Necessary?

Here at our Perth dental clinic, we advocate for the proactive management of wisdom teeth. We often recommend advance wisdom tooth removal in Perth to prevent potential complications associated with their eruption. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to discomfort, swelling, and infection of the surrounding gum tissue. More severe consequences include adjacent teeth damage, cysts, and tumours. Early consultations enable us to identify potential problems and decide if wisdom teeth removal is the best course of action for maintaining your oral health.

What To Expect During Wisdom Teeth Extraction?


The first step in the wisdom teeth extraction process involves a consultation with our experienced oral surgeon at our dental clinic in Como, Perth. We'll review your dental and medical history, conduct a thorough examination, and utilise X-rays to assess the positioning and condition of your wisdom teeth.



Before the extraction procedure, we will provide you with comprehensive instructions to prepare for the procedure, including fasting guidelines if sedation or general anaesthesia will be administered.



The extraction process varies depending on whether your wisdom teeth are erupted or impacted. Typically, it involves an incision in the gum to expose the tooth and bone, removal of any obstructing bone, and possibly sectioning the tooth for easier removal.



After removing the teeth, we clean the site and apply stitches if necessary. These may dissolve over time or require removal during a follow-up visit.


Post-operative Care

We'll give you detailed post-operative care instructions to manage swelling, pain, and oral hygiene. It's crucial to follow these instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

post-operative care


We might schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing, remove stitches if needed, and address any concerns you may have after the dental surgery.


What is Sleep Dentistry?

Sleep Dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, involves using various types of medication to help patients relax or fall asleep during dental procedures like wisdom tooth removal. Common types used include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedatives, and intravenous (IV) sedation, catering to different levels of anxiety and procedure complexity. This method ensures a pain-free and stress-free experience, particularly beneficial for those anxious about dental work or undergoing more involved extractions.

At our Perth clinic, we offer sleep dentistry to ensure a comfortable experience for our patients undergoing wisdom teeth removal. This approach helps you to relax deeply or sleep through the procedure, ideal for those with dental anxiety, making your wisdom tooth extraction experience smooth and comfortable.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost in Perth

The cost of wisdom teeth removal at our Perth clinic varies, influenced by the procedure's complexity, the number of teeth removed, and the type of anaesthesia used. Typically, prices range from $200 to $600 per tooth, but complex cases may incur higher costs. We provide various payment options and plans to make managing the treatment cost easier. For an accurate estimate tailored to your specific situation, we recommend visiting or contacting our Como dental clinic.

At our clinic, our team of dental experts are dedicated to offering personalised, compassionate care to prevent the complications associated with impacted wisdom teeth. Early intervention is key to a healthy, comfortable mouth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Perth FAQs

What problems can wisdom teeth cause?

Wisdom teeth can lead to pain, infection, and damage to other teeth because they often don't have enough space to come in properly. They can get stuck under the gum, causing serious issues.

When can I remove my wisdom teeth?

Early removal is often suggested because younger patients tend to have easier recoveries, as the roots of the wisdom teeth are not fully developed, and the bone is less dense. It is typically recommended to do so in late adolescence or early adulthood, between the ages of 17 and 25. But, you can remove them at any age if they cause trouble.

What are the types of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth can grow straight, sideways, towards the front, or towards the back of the mouth, affecting how they're removed. An impacted wisdom tooth, which is usually the one that causes the most pain and problems, occurs when your wisdom tooth doesn't have enough room to emerge or grow properly, and oftentimes involved the neighbouring teeth thus causing more pain.

What are the possible risks of Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Like any surgical procedure, wisdom teeth removal comes with potential risks, although serious complications are rare. The procedure can sometimes lead to dry socket, infection, damage to nearby teeth or nerves, but serious problems are rare. At our clinic, we take all necessary precautions to minimise these risks and ensure a safe and effective treatment for our patients in Perth.
