Wisdom teeth are the large molars found at the very back of your mouth. These molars usually erupt between the ages of 17-24, however, for some individuals they may erupt at any stage of life. Wisdom teeth are well known for their painful growth. The issue occurs if the patient does not have enough space in their mouth for the teeth to erupt into. In this situation, as the teeth grow they can become wedged in or impacted, causing an increased risk of infection and inflammation in the surrounding tissue.
Common symptoms of infected wisdom teeth include:
- Red swollen gums
- Limited jaw opening
- Bad taste/smell
- Generally feeling unwell – nausea as a result of infection
At SmileCo we ensure those of our patients with limited space for wisdom teeth are well cared for. We recommend early wisdom teeth removal for the following reasons:
- To reduce the chance of infection & prevent pain
- To remove any food traps created by the eruption of the wisdom teeth
- To prevent decay in the wisdom teeth & the adjacent teeth
- To avoid formation of cysts
- To reduce crowding and reduce the risk of undoing previous orthodontic work
- To reduce the risk of jaw fracture during contact sports
At SmileCo we will help to explain the removal process and help you to avoid these unpleasant situations.
Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment is when the nerve of the tooth is removed due to damage, trauma or more commonly, tooth decay. It is necessary to avoid infections and inflammation that is caused by dental decay, dental trauma, a broken filling or crown, wear and tear or severe gum damage.
If you are experiencing pain please make an appointment to see one of our dentists and we will discuss the cause of your pain with you.
If you are missing teeth, implants are the best long-term solution to create a beautiful, natural looking smile. Full mouth rehabilitation restores your ability to smile and speak with confidence. Implants can also be used to create a smile makeover that includes cosmetic procedures such as veneers, crowns and bridges
The team at SmileCo always wants you to be happy with your smile and oral hygiene. We recommend that all our patients come in for 6 monthly check ups. Coming in for these regular appointments allows the professional team at SmileCo to fully look after you and pick up any issues early on. Your dentist will have a thorough inspection of your teeth and gums to make sure there are no underlying issues like gum disease, fillings needed or any other issues.
A clean occurs after the initial examination is conducted, this helps to remove any plaque that may be missed in hard to reach places as well as providing a fluoride treatment to help prevent decay and reduce teeth sensitivity.
Our trained professionals aim to make your regular check-ups as simple and easy as possible. We understand not everyone loves going to the dentist. But, here at SmileCo, we know you will have an enjoyable experience and be confident knowing your oral hygiene is being carefully maintained.
