Wisdom teeth, or the third molars are often unable to erupt normally as they are the very last to come through. They generally do not erupt until the late teens or during the early twenties, by which stage there is often insufficient room for them to come through without causing problems. Here at Central Maitland Dentistry, we monitor the position and development of wisdom teeth and will recommend they are removed if there is no hope they can come through normally.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the very back molars that erupt in the mouth. Most of the time due to insufficient space they don’t completely erupt and need removal to avoid pain, infection, ulcerations, swelling and crowding of teeth.

Wisdom teeth depending on the severity are extracted either in dental chair or in hospital.

In chair procedure could be carries out at times under IV sedation or Nitrous-oxide Oxygen administration. In hospital it is done under General Anaesthesia.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone is a higher energetic form of oxygen. Ozone has a good disinfection power and in dentistry can be used as a disinfectant, control bleeding, cleanse wounds after extractions, improve healing of wounds.

It comes as a gas and aqueous form. Ozonated water may be used as a mouth rinse after scale and clean of teeth.
