Your wisdom teeth or third molars are the very last teeth to come through. Often people will experience problems due to a lack of space in the jaw and may need to have these teeth removed.
Here at Sydney Cosmetic Dentist, we prefer to take a wait-and-see approach and will only take out your wisdom teeth if there is no hope of them erupting without problems. If your wisdom teeth cannot erupt properly, Dr Peter Poulos can carefully remove them, going out of his way to make sure the procedure is as comfortable as possible for you.
It will be better to have your wisdom teeth removed if they have become impacted and are trying to erupt underneath other teeth and this may damage them. Another problem is that wisdom teeth can sometimes erupt sideways through the gums, or they may only partially erupt, potentially causing pain and infection.
