Oral Surgery

Do you need an extraction? We perform surgery safely.

Entrust your smile with us

When a tooth cannot be saved, extraction (removal) of the tooth may be the only course of treatment. Extraction is performed as a last resort when there is no option left to salvage the tooth which has been damaged. Extraction may also be required if you have overcrowding, or extra teeth which can occur on rare occasions.

We will always put your best interests first

Most minor surgeries are performed in our practice; however, we may choose to refer you to a Maxillofacial Surgeon for more complicated cases. We will guide you through this process and ensure that you are knowledgeable about your procedure so that you can make an informed decision. In order to solidly diagnose problems in the dentofacial area we may perform diagnostic x-rays. We will most likely recommend an x-ray if you have felt discomfort or pain below the teeth or in the jaw as this can signify an impacted tooth or decay.

Panorex X-ray

A Panorex X-ray allows us to see a complete picture of the alignment of your jaw, the positioning of your teeth and if there is sufficient space for your third molars (wisdom teeth) to fully erupt. In addition, it is an excellent diagnostic tool for evaluating the supporting bone for possible cysts or tumours.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are otherwise known as the third molars, which usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24.

Wisdom teeth may need to be removed if the surrounding gum becomes infected when the tooth fails to erupt properly – this is known as an impacted tooth. This failure to erupt properly may occur either because there is not enough room in the jaw for the tooth, or because of its abnormal position.

Some of the problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth include:

  • A trapping and build-up of plaque and bacteria
  • Development of cysts
  • Tumour development
  • Infection in the mouth
  • Jaw and Gum Disease
  • Intense pain and soreness in the mouth
  • Facial swelling
  • Swelling of the gum line in the back of the mouth

Many oral health specialists will recommend the removal of wisdom teeth, as early extraction will help to eliminate problems. Problems which can occur if you fail to remove your wisdom teeth include damage done to the teeth next to your erupting wisdom tooth. If your wisdom tooth is erupting on a diagonal angle towards an already erupted tooth it can actually grow towards the delicate pulp (nerves) and dentine creating a very painful experience and unnecessary extraction.

Millennium Dental Mosman will never recommend any unnecessary procedures. If you have any questions regarding our diagnosis or your procedure please do not hesitate to ask one of our helpful supporting team members.

  • Difficulty in opening the mouth
