Dental Problems You Need a Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom Teeth Pain
Wisdom teeth pain is usually caused by inflammation of the gums around the wisdom teeth. Removal of the wisdom tooth can relieve this pain.
When wisdom teeth come in, they can difficult to clean, leading to bacterial plaque accumulation. This can result in gum irritation and inflammation, leading to gum disease, an infection that can cause redness, swelling, and bleeding
Dental abscesses are pus-filled pockets that form in the gums or teeth caused by bacteria. Wisdom teeth are especially susceptible to dental abscesses because they're hard to clean.
Wisdom teeth often cause severe toothaches as they push through the gums. Infection or abscess may also cause a severe toothache in the wisdom teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Pain
When there isn’t enough space for the wisdom tooth, the tooth either erupts at an angle or might not erupt at all. When this happens, the wisdom tooth and other surrounding structures become susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease and root damage, which can cause pain and swelling. The timely removal of these impacted teeth can prevent these dental problems.

Frequently Asked Questions about Wisdom Teeth Removal
Am I a good candidate for wisdom teeth removal?
Your dentist may recommend the removal of your wisdom teeth if they are causing or may potentially cause dental problems. Wisdom tooth extraction may be a good option for you if you have any of the following:
- Infection and pain: If your wisdom teeth are infected, they can cause pain and swelling.
- Overcrowding and Misalignment: If you do not have enough space for your wisdom teeth, they may cause overcrowding or misaligned teeth. If you have overcrowded teeth and are about to undergo orthodontic treatment, you may also be recommended to have your wisdom teeth removed.
- Cavities and gum disease: Wisdom teeth are difficult to clean. They can increase your risk of cavities and gum disease.
- Damage to other teeth: Other teeth can be damaged by wisdom teeth coming in at an incorrect angle. Also, impacted teeth may make surrounding teeth more prone to decay.
We encourage you to schedule a consultation appointment at AP Dental if you are experiencing any of these issues. Our friendly team of dentists can help determine whether wisdom teeth removal is right for you. There are many reasons to consider wisdom tooth removal, and we can help you decide.
What are the advantages of getting my wisdom teeth removed?
Getting your wisdom teeth removed can provide several oral health benefits:
- It can ease the pressure on adjacent teeth and prevent damage.
- It can prevent overcrowding.
- Teeth become easier to clean, and cavities are prevented.
- It can reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
- It reduces the risk of cyst and tumour development.
Is wisdom teeth removal painful?
Wisdom teeth removal can be painful. However, with the advancements in medicine and dentistry, we have come a long way in ensuring that patients are comfortable during the procedure. Aside from local anesthesia, which can numb the area around the wisdom teeth, we also provide various sedation options to reduce pain, including intravenous (IV) sedation and inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide). You will be sedated according to your needs and preferences.
Our dedicated team will work with you to determine the most appropriate type of sedation for your needs.
What happens if wisdom teeth are not removed?
Will I get sedated by my dentist during the procedure?
Depending on your preference, you may choose to have sedation for your wisdom tooth removal. AP Dental offers various levels of sedation to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure. We offer sedation options, such as intravenous (IV) sedation and inhalation sedation. As part of our IV sedation service, we work with an anaesthesiologist, who will be present during your treatment along with your dentist.
Dental treatments will be administered under sedation, and you will awaken having had the procedure completed. Our inhalation sedation uses nitrous oxide, also known as “happy gas” or “laughing gas,” wherein a small nosepiece will be used to inhale the gas. It will help reduce your pain and anxiety during wisdom teeth removal.
Are there any restrictions after a wisdom teeth removal procedure?
The removal of wisdom teeth is a common procedure that can provide many benefits. However, there are also some restrictions that you need to be aware of after the procedure:
- Avoid vigorous brushing, spitting, and rinsing the mouth within 24 hours after surgery so as not to dislodge the blood clot.
- Avoid drinking through a straw and eating crunchy foods like nuts and seeds for at least 24 hours after surgery. They can cause the blood clot that forms to become dislodged, leading to bleeding and pain.
- Avoid excessive movement and strenuous activities that can dislodge blood clots or stitches.
- Avoid hard or spicy foods for a few days, as they can irritate the healing sites.
- Avoid hot foods and drinks as they may cause swelling.
- Do not smoke for at least 72 hours after surgery, as this can delay healing and increase the risk of infection.
- Do not chew on the side of your mouth where the surgery was performed.
Following these simple guidelines can help you heal quickly and enjoy all the benefits of having your wisdom teeth removed.
How long will I recover after getting my wisdom teeth removed?
Recovery times vary from person to person, depending on the difficulty of the surgery and the healing process of a patient’s body. Most people feel back to normal within one week, but it can take up to two weeks to a month for some to recover fully.
Is it safe to drive home after getting my wisdom teeth removed?
You should avoid driving for a few hours after wisdom teeth removal so that your body has time and the opportunity to recuperate following the procedure. Aside from this, if you have been sedated, you’ll be safer if someone else drives you home since it is expected that you’ll be drowsy after the procedure.
Will my health fund cover the cost of a wisdom teeth removal procedure?
Wisdom teeth removal price varies based on the complexity of the procedure. A simple wisdom tooth extraction starts at $300, while a complex wisdom tooth removal requiring surgical bone removal and tooth division starts at $400. Please schedule a consultation appointment at AP Dental if you would like an accurate quote.
Your health insurance may cover the wisdom teeth removal cost if you have a general dental extras policy. However, surgically removing wisdom teeth may require a major dental extras policy. For more information regarding your wisdom teeth extraction coverage, please get in touch with your health insurance fund provider.
