Dental Problems That Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Address
When wisdom teeth become impacted, they can press against the adjacent tooth, causing severe pain and destruction to it.
Get relief from your toothache now with wisdom tooth removal treatment at our clinic!
An abscess is a pus-filled pocket that can form around the wisdom tooth. It is caused by bacteria and can be very painful.
The skilled dentist can remove your wisdom tooth abscess to reduce the infection and alleviate your pain.
Wisdom Tooth Pain
When wisdom teeth erupt, they can cause pain, soreness, and swelling as they push through the gums.
Timberlands Dental Clinic’s wisdom teeth extraction service can help ease these symptoms and prevent further complications.
When there is not enough space for wisdom teeth in the jaw, they may only erupt partially, causing the gums around them to become inflamed and infected.
Our caring team of dentists can remove wisdom teeth to stop the progression of gum disease, giving you better dental health.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Wisdom Teeth Removal
No, wisdom teeth only need to be removed if they are causing problems or have the potential to do so in the future. However, if they are causing pain, infection, damage to other teeth, gum disease, or other significant problems, it is generally advisable to have them removed.
It’s best to consult your dentists to determine if you need to undergo this treatment.
During the treatment, our dental team will
- Assess your teeth and jaw and take x-rays to determine the position of your wisdom tooth.
- Numb the area around your wisdom tooth.
- Expose it by making an incision in the gums.
- Divide the tooth into smaller pieces if necessary. Your dentist may also remove some bone around the tooth to make it easier to remove.
- Remove it piece-by-piece or the entire tooth and clean the site.
- Close the incision with stitches.
- Place a cotton or gauze pad over the surgical site to control the bleeding.
- Provide you with aftercare instructions.
During the procedure, you should not feel any pain as the area will be numb prior to surgery. However, some soreness and discomfort in the days following wisdom teeth removal is normal. Over-the-counter painkillers can be taken for relief.
With rest and proper care, you should start to feel better within the next several days.
As with any surgical procedure, there will be risks with wisdom teeth removal. These include:
- Excessive bleeding
- Infection in the surgical site
- Swelling and bruising
- Pain and discomfort
- Dry socket (when your bone is exposed after the procedure due to the blood clot getting dislodged or failing to form)
- Nerve injury causing temporary numbness
Your dentists will assess your risks before wisdom teeth surgery and take steps to minimise them.
It depends on the type of anaesthetic you receive. At Timberlands Dental Clinic, we use a local anaesthetic, so you might be able to drive yourself home. However, we advise that you bring someone with you during your procedure. If a general anaesthetic is used, you will need someone to drive you home as your reflexes and coordination will be affected.
Your dentists will inform and advise you on this prior to the appointment.
You can expect to recover gradually in the days following your procedure. However, it is normal for the following to occur:
- Pain and discomfort
- Bleeding and swelling
- Limited mouth opening
These symptoms should subside within several days and can be managed with medications that will be prescribed. Be sure to rest and closely follow your dentist’s aftercare instructions.
Here are some ways to avoid complications after your oral surgery:
- Apply an ice pack to the cheek where the surgery was performed to reduce swelling.
- Rinse with salt dissolved in water or mouth rinse after 24 hours.
- Take your prescribed medications as directed.
- Eat soft foods and avoid hard, chewy, or crunchy foods.
- Avoid strenuous activity, smoking, spitting, or drinking through a straw for several days.
- Brush and floss your teeth carefully while avoiding the surgical site.
Following your treatment, your dentists will provide you with specific instructions.
The procedure can cost between $390 – $460; however, this may vary depending on how complicated the case is. To know the exact fee, schedule an appointment with our experienced team.
We also highly recommend that you contact your health fund provider to find out if they will cover a portion of the cost of wisdom tooth removal.
