Wisdom Teeth Removal in Melbourne

Partial Eruption – This happens when the wisdom tooth does not erupt completely because there is not enough space to grow and so it gets stuck underneath the gums. Sometimes food particles can collect underneath the gums and start to rot the tooth. Bacteria can also gather underneath the gums and may cause infection which may lead to swelling and limited mouth opening.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth – When a wisdom tooth does not erupt in the mouth and is stuck in the jaw bone. A cyst can also develop in some cases.

Crooked Growth – In some cases, wisdom teeth can erupt in an angle, which may cause irritation to the gums or cheeks or start the decay in the neighbouring tooth. You can set an appointment with us for wisdom teeth removal in Melbourne .
