    If your wisdom teeth have become impacted, Hanover Dental Care in Vermont South can extract your uncomfortable teeth. We have completed successful wisdom teeth removal procedures for patients in Vermont South, Wantirna South, Forest Hill, Glen Waverley and Burwood East without complication.

    Our experienced dentists will talk you through each stage of the wisdom teeth removal process during a private consultation and advise you on aftercare and pain management.

    What you can expect

    Wisdom teeth removal is necessary for individuals with wisdom teeth that do not have enough space to grow. The lack of space will result in the wisdom teeth becoming impacted and will need to be removed to prevent infection and inflammation. Your dentist at Hanover Dental Care will offer a choice of anaesthesia, depending on the expected complexity of the wisdom teeth removal process.

    Surgery involves making an incision in the gum tissue to expose the wisdom tooth and bone and removing the bone that blocks access to the root of the tooth. The tooth will then be removed or divided into two sections to make the removal process easier. The empty site is then thoroughly cleaned of any tooth or bone debris, and the wound is stitched up when necessary.

    Anaesthetic and anxiety relief

    Our dentists perform wisdom teeth removal under local anaesthetic to ensure you, your teeth and your gums are as comfortable as possible. You will be awake throughout treatment but for those of you with difficult wisdom teeth to remove, general anaesthetic may be required. General anaesthetic will enable you to sleep throughout your wisdom teeth removal, also making it a good option for very anxious patients.

    Aftercare

    Hanover Dental Care goes to great lengths to ensure a speedy recovery after wisdom teeth removal procedures. Recovery is generally straightforward, but you are likely to experience pain, bleeding and swelling in the first couple of days.

    If you have had treatment under general anaesthetic, you must not drive after surgery and will require an adult to escort you home.

    It is important to avoid exercise and strenuous activity within the first few days of recovery and are also to avoid drinking alcohol, eating extremely hot food and smoking. Our dentists in Vermont South will explain the right aftercare steps to take in detail at your consultation.
