Wisdom teeth do not always erupt into the mouth properly. Sometimes, a tooth erupts part of the way, but with a flap of gum covering it. Bacteria and pieces of food can get trapped under this flap and may cause swelling and irritation of the gum.
Wisdom tooth pain may even be caused by a gum infection around the tooth. Wisdom teeth can also cause serious problems, such as tooth decay, infection, and damage to the adjacent tooth.
Wisdom teeth can be safely and effectively removed in our professional and friendly dental surgery, located in the village of Leura in the Blue Mountains.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
