We dentists hate removing teeth unless it’s absolutely necessary. At Method Dental we understand that everyone has a budget and that everyone values their teeth differently.
When a tooth truly cannot be saved, we can usually remove it under local anaesthetic without complication.
For the more complex cases, we work with our trusted Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons to get the tooth removed, possibly under general anaesthetic.
Wisdom teeth can come through into the mouth without any problems. In some cases they can come through in poor positions which can make them difficult to clean. If they are in these difficult positions, it can result in pain and infection.
It is these cases where removal may be necessary.
With our in-house OPG machine, we are able to take a clear x-ray to show us the position of your wisdom teeth and help to decide whether removal is necessary. Many cases can be handled easily at Method Dental with local anaesthetic.
One final note - wisdom teeth do not cause crowding of your other teeth. There is no evidence that this is the case and there are other, much simpler explanations as to why your teeth may become crowded later in life.
