Wisdom Teeth Removal in Adelaide
Wisdom teeth are the last of the adult teeth to erupt and often do so between the ages of 16 and 23. There is usually limited space to accommodate wisdom teeth, leading to complications such as crowding. If your wisdom teeth are impacted and/or have become infected, they will need to be removed as soon as possible to prevent damage to surrounding gums and teeth. Fortunately, the team at Burnside Dental Practice can assist with wisdom teeth removal in Adelaide, helping patients to maintain their dental health and avoid further discomfort or complications.
What Does Wisdom Teeth Extraction Involve?
Our wisdom tooth removal in Adelaide involves extracting one or more impacted wisdom teeth in a single session using the latest technologies. We’ll expose the tooth and bone by making an incision in the gum tissue, after which we can remove bone that blocks the root and extract the tooth. We then clean the area, stitch the wound, and place a gauze over the extraction site to control bleeding and help form a blood clot.
How Much Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost in Adelaide?
Our wisdom teeth removal cost in Adelaide varies based on the number of wisdom teeth that need removing. Naturally, removing all four wisdom teeth will cost more than just one. The cost is typically around $350 per tooth, but private health insurance can cover 60% to 100% of this cost. The choice of sedation can also influence the price. For example, local anaesthetic will cost less than general anaesthetic. Our dentist can formulate a plan that takes your budget into account.
Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Painful?
Removing wisdom teeth in Adelaide can cause some discomfort, but the procedure shouldn’t be painful. We do our best to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the procedure with our caring and empathetic approach. We have several sedation options available to minimise discomfort during the procedure itself, but it’s normal to experience pain for several days afterwards as the site heals.
