Wisdom Teeth


It’s wise to remove them

Wisdom teeth (often called third molars) are the last teeth to come through the gums and usually emerge in the late teens to early twenties.

Most people have four wisdom teeth, some have one, two or three and some people have no wisdom teeth. If there is enough space and wisdom teeth come through straight they cause no problems.

When wisdom teeth develop at an angle they can push other teeth out of alignment, can emerge through the gums only partially and cause an infection. Removal of a wisdom tooth is a very common procedure and should be done as soon as possible before the problems develop.

At Glebe Dental our dental team have extensive experience removing wisdom teeth. Depending on your personal circumstances your procedure may be completed at our practice with or without IV sedation.
