Tooth Extraction in Sydney
At some point around the age of 18 to 25, most Australians will experience the growth of their wisdom teeth. Some of those people won’t experience much more than a few twinges when their teeth come through and settle into place, but unfortunately for many, the arrival of wisdom teeth can be significantly painful.

Tooth Extractions in Sydney
Why choose tooth extractions?
When that occurs, patients may need to seek out wisdom teeth removal in Sydney.
Wisdom teeth removal is necessary when the wisdom teeth don’t have enough space to come through naturally, or if they cause serious pain and damage to surrounding teeth by coming in at an angle.
In these situations, the wisdom teeth can become stuck under the gumline, or partially stuck mid-way through erupting through the gums. This can lead to infection and painful abscesses.
For some people, a standard check up with their dentist may be able to avoid these issues. Before wisdom teeth start coming through, your Sydney dentist will be able to see them on an x-ray, and may be able to see that the teeth will cause problems, and recommend extraction to save pain in the future.
Either way, the process of wisdom tooth removal is a common and fairly straight-forward one, much like a large tooth extraction.
It’s also important to note that you might only need to have one extracted out of the four, although it’s not uncommon to get all four teeth out at once.
