Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal 2017-12-20T13:45:32+00:00

Wisdom teeth usually come into the mouth from aged 17 onwards. Very often there is not enough space in the mouth for them, and so they can get misaligned, or ‘impact’ into the teeth in front.

This can cause:
•    Severe pain
•    Gum Infections
•    Bad Breath and taste in the mouth
•    Decay (to the wisdom teeth themselves and to the teeth in front)
•    Ulcers
•    Difficulty opening and closing the mouth

If you have starting to have any of these issues we would recommend removing them to prevent future discomfort or further problems.

Specialist Oral Surgeon
Our Specialist Oral Surgeon, Dr. John Wong, is highly skilled and has over 30 years of experience in removing wisdom teeth.

Planned approach
We use CBCT imaging to produce a high definition 3D image of your wisdom teeth position in the jaw, allowing for the easiest tooth removal for you.

Committed to your health and safety
All equipment and instruments used during your procedure are 100% sterile, and many instruments are single use only.

General Anesthesia
Dr. Wong can arrange a day stay at a local hospital for a general anesthetic procedure, so you can wake up once the procedure has been completed.

Wisdom Teeth FAQ’s

What to eat after wisdom teeth removal? 2017-12-20T13:10:49+00:00

Following the extraction of wisdom teeth, patients more often than not experience some pain, a sore and stiff jaw and some swelling or discolouration of the facial skin around the mouth, jaw and cheeks. Some blood is often common as a result of the stitches applied to aid healing. It is important to eat soft foods, avoid smoking, take dentist-prescribed painkillers and apply an ice pack to bring down the swelling.

Do you have to remove wisdom teeth? 2017-12-20T13:05:36+00:00

If your wisdom teeth are causing pain, inflammation, infection or generally interfering with your life, then yes, it is wise to have them removed as soon as possible. Impacted wisdom teeth cause pain due to their inability to erupt fully into place, usually due to blockage from other teeth. One of the most important reasons to have impacted wisdom teeth removed quickly is to prevent further damage to other teeth.

What are wisdom teeth? 2017-12-20T13:05:17+00:00

Wisdom teeth are the four furthest back molars in human beings. They generally appear between the ages of 17 and 25, and, while many people experience no issues with the arrival of their wisdom teeth, others experience pain and discomfort as a result of impacted wisdom teeth, or the simple fact that their mouth isn’t large enough to accommodate another set of molars.

What Our Customers Say

I took Alistair's advice and Hayley & Alistair made me up a SomnoBrux to address my Bruxism. Wish I had taken his advice a long time ago - I found the guard really easy to sleep with and am now sleeping so much better and not waking up with a saw jaw and a headache every morning. Can't thank you enough Mona Vale Dental !read more

The team at Mona Vale Dental is not just top notch but world class. Dr. Graham has made sure he's always a master of the latest techniques. The fact that crowns and overlays can be done in a single session (without waiting to send away for molds, etc) is awesome. The quality of the work is always high. I personally have a challenging medical background and the Mona Vale Dental team is phenomenal at making sure all the specifics of my case are considered. And, on top of this, they're simply a really friendly bunch. Couldn't recommend them any more!read more

Our company designed and built the new practice environment for Dr Alistair Graham and I must say that the entire team at Mona Vale Dental were a real pleasure to work with from start to finish. They were and still are wonderful clients and people. His team are so caring and whilst we were shooting a video on location for a whole day, I saw first hand how the team greeted and looked after their patients. Wow was I impressed. The place looks amazing too and I recommend anyone in the local area to make an appointment and go and feel what it is like to be treated by such great professionals in an amazing space. We wish you all the best Dr Graham and team in your new practice.read more
