Ways to Reduce Wisdom Tooth Swelling

Swelling around your teeth and gums can cause real discomfort. As a result, simple things like eating and speaking can get difficult.

This swelling can originate from a number of reasons such as canker sores, gum disease or pregnancy related issues. Nevertheless, there can be another reason for this swelling, i.e. problem with the wisdom tooth. In this situation, you may wonder if there could be any way to deal with the pain and discomfort due to this swelling.

In this scenario, a few things are worth mentioning.

The wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are the molars that grow in the back of the mouth. They have a wide surface on the top and they assist well in chewing. Unlike other teeth in your mouth, these molars appear at the age between 17 – 21 years.

Ways to Reduce Wisdom Tooth Swelling

Reasons for swelling in wisdom teeth

The real reason for swelling is the bacteria. And the bacteria infection we are talking about in this regard is related to the way your wisdom tooth grows. If the wisdom tooth grows at an angle or it partially erupts through the gum, it can cause bacterial infection which can further lead to swelling.

Swelling of wisdom teeth before removal

There are many people who do not have any issues with their wisdom teeth. However, there are many who have issues like swelling, pus, bad taste, pain, and/or fever due to problems with the wisdom teeth. Now, extraction of wisdom teeth may seem like the only way to solve the problem once and for all but you are going to have to deal with the pain while tooth is still there. A few things that you can do to contain the pain are worth mentioning in this regard.

  • You can rinse your mouth with salt water. You will need to add two tablespoon of salt in eight ounces of warm water. Rinse your mouth with this water.
  • Another way to reduce the pain is to apply cold compress. Cold compress should numb the area to give you comfort from pain.
  • You can also use numbing gels to contain the pain. These numbing gels mainly consist of benzocaine.
  • You can also go for the over-the-counter drugs to deal with the pain. These are usually anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. However, you have to keep in mind that this is only the temporary solution to relieve the pain.

Swelling after the wisdom tooth removal

While a couple of days after the wisdom tooth removal may bring a lot of swelling, this swelling is not here to stay for too long. The reason is that the source of swelling and infection will no longer be there. However, you can continue with the above mentioned steps to contain swelling after the tooth removal.

One thing that you need to keep in mind here is that you need to deal with the infection by having consultation with your dentist. Not taking care of infected area after the tooth removal can make things worse if the infection gets severe.

Is Dental Implant Treatment Painful?

Winning Smiles Dental Surgery Blacktown

Searching for family dentistry in blacktown

When most people hear the word dentist they immediately think of pain and discomfort. This might be because of a bad experience in the past with toothache or having a tooth extracted. In many cases, it is an entirely unfounded misconception  Whilst a dental emergency may be painful and require a visit to the dentist, the truth is that with the modern techniques and advanced training of dentists today, it is rarely the procedure itself that is painful. For a planned procedure such as dental implant treatment, you can be assured of a totally painless experience.

If you have been considering dental implants, but have found yourself worrying about whether or not the treatment hurts, do not fear – it is a completely natural concern. In this article, we take a closer look at the process to help to put your mind at rest.

Why choose to have dental implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth and are suitable for almost all patients. Unlike other options such as crowns and bridges, they do not have compromise your remaining, healthy teeth. They provide you with stable and natural looking replacement teeth, whilst at the same time helping to restore the strength and stability of the jaw by replacing not just the missing tooth itself but also the root.

Apart from the obvious visual implications of missing teeth, which can severely undermine our confidence and sense of self-esteem, there are hidden dangers of missing teeth – especially when gaps are allowed to remain for longer periods of time. This can include shrinking of the bone which may cause your natural teeth to drift or move. Eventually, increased weakness can cause the loss of additional teeth. The receding jaw bone can also often have the effect of causing us to look older than we are.

As well as helping you to look and feel great again, dental implants prevent such problems arising both now and in the long term future.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are made up of three components – the implant, the abutment, and the crown.

The implant plays the most important role, as it helps to restore strength to the jaw as well as forming a strong base for the replacement tooth. Dental implants are made of high-quality titanium, which is biocompatible. This allows it to bond and fuse with the natural bone around it so that it becomes an integral part of your jaw.

Once the implant is fully bonded, the abutment can be fitted, and finally the crown, leaving you with a replacement tooth that looks and feels completely natural.

What does the treatment process look like?

Here at Winning Smiles Dental Surgery, we follow a four-step process for dental implants.

1. Agree on a treatment plan

Next, you’ll have an appointment will your dentist who’ll conduct thorough examinations and take x-rays if required. This will help to check if any preliminary work is required prior to the implant treatment. Your personalized treatment plan will then be agreed.

2. Have your implants placed

Your dentist will fit your implants. The entire procedure is conducted under local anesthetic so you will feel absolutely nothing during the treatment

3. Healing and bonding time

It takes from 12 to 14 weeks for your implant to integrate with your bone. During this time, you’ll have a temporary cover to protect it.

4. Get your new teeth

You’ll return to our clinic for your dentist to fit your final tooth crown or bridge. Now you can enjoy your new teeth.

What about recovery and aftercare?

As with any surgical procedure, everybody’s experience is different. The vast majority of patients state that they feel nothing more than mild discomfort afterwards, most often during the healing stage. In most cases, patients are pleasantly surprised by the lack of any pain during the procedure itself.

To help you to stay comfortable, your dentist will prescribe painkillers and antibiotics and may recommend ice packs for use after your implant procedure. Your implantologist will always go through what you need to do to ensure a quick and successful recovery. Should you have any questions or concerns following your treatment, we are never more than a phone call away.

Everything You Need To Know About Wisdom Teeth Removal

wisdom teeth can be harmful to your health

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

At Winning Smiles Dental Surgery we realize that are as many different types of wisdom teeth as there are people in the world. Call us today so we can improve your dental health together. At Winning smiles dentists, our most experienced dentist provide teeth related treatment across the western Sydney including suburbs as Seven hills, Kellyville, Liverpool Quakers hill, Glenwood, Penrith, Bella vista, Toongabbie, Rooty hills, Marsden park, Stanhope gardens, Baulkham hills, Westmead, Windsor and Richmond.

Affordable Wisdom Teeth Removal

Many factors need to be taken into consideration when determining the exact cost of your wisdom tooth extraction. The price will vary from patient to patient depending on the number of teeth that have to be removed, while having an impacted or decayed tooth will also affect the amount of money you will have to put aside for this kind of procedure. Removing a tooth that has not fully erupted is usually carried out by an oral surgeon under general anesthesia, which will increase the total cost of the treatment. However, having a dental or medical insurance policy could put some pressure off your budget, while in some cases you could have your tooth removed free of charge. Our office staff will be more than glad to assist you if you are having any trouble with your insurance claims.

In typical cases, when your wisdom tooth is growing at a normal angle and isn’t decayed, and you want it removed out of precautionary reasons, the total cost of the removal procedure will be around $200. However, the price of our dental services will rise depending on the type of impaction and the complexity of the procedure required. The only way for us to give you a realistic estimate of the cost of the treatment is to do a complete examination of your mouth and jaw and to review your x-rays.

Everything You Need To Know About Wisdom Teeth Removal

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Usually the last ones to develop in life, these teeth are located behind the second molars at the very back of the palate, therefore they are also referred to as third molars. Since their growth process for most people starts between middle teenage years and the early twenties, they are commonly associated with the “age of wisdom,” from which they derive their peculiar name. According to some anthropologists, wisdom teeth have become mostly redundant for modern humans, which could explain why they are causing so many problems for so many people.

Proactive Approach To Wisdom Teeth Removal

Chances that you have heard about someone having a hard time with their third molars are high, and unfortunately, these complaints are usually the most painful ones. The positioning of the tooth is a crucial factor in this painful and sometimes unpreventable process. More often, patients report to their dentists only after they experience pain or swelling and by that time, the damage has already been done.

Once the damage is done, the recovery and the teeth extraction become much more difficult for patients, who are looking at months of recovery after the painful process of the teeth removal itself, especially in cases involving multiple extractions.

As firm believers in an efficient, proactive approach, we at Winning Smiles Dental Surgery offer safe assessment plan to closely monitor the development of wisdom teeth and ensure the oral health and comfort of our patients. Please note that we respect privacy policy while working with our patients, so rest assured that your personal details will be safe with us. Also, bear in mind that you have an option to schedule your appointment online as well.

Our Wisdom Tooth Extraction Approach

Experiencing painful problems with your wisdom tooth does not necessarily mean you will need to have it removed since pain is sometimes a normal albeit unwanted consequence of the tooth growth process. Only after we examine your mouth, jaw, and x-ray films, we will be able to decide what kind of procedure best suits your exact type of problem. In cases where your tooth has become infected, the dentist may choose to delay the extraction procedure and treat you with antibiotics first. In other cases, it is best to give your wisdom tooth some time to push through the gums and find its rightful place in your jaw.

At Winning Smiles Dental Surgery, our preferred choice and recommendation is to have your wisdom teeth removed under local anesthetics, meaning that you will be fully awake throughout the procedure. The sheer thought of being awake while having a large tooth pulled out from your jaw can scare away some people, but the procedure itself should be painless and complications and side effects are less common compared to general anesthesia.

Listed below are answers to some FAQs about this specific dental problem. If we haven’t answered your question or you would like more information please feel free to contact us.

Benefits Of Early Wisdom Teeth Removal

For some people, erupting of wisdom teeth is a painless and sometimes unnoticeable experience. However, most dental experts recommend having your third molars removed early, preferably in teen years, before they cause any problems and complications. Listed below are just some of the benefits of an early wisdom teeth removal.

● Decreased risk of dental caries and gum disease
● Avoiding damage to the surrounding teeth
● Avoiding unwanted tooth movement
● Reduced oral and facial discomfort
● The less painful process of healing
● Improved quality of life

What Is An Impacted Wisdom Tooth?

Wisdom teeth are considered a part of normal human dentition in situations where they have enough room to erupt properly, without any pain swelling, or other dental problems.

For some people, however, these teeth don’t have enough space to emerge or develop normally, which forces them to grow in all possible directions, toward the next tooth or the back of the mouth, or sometimes even stay trapped within the jawbone. Such wisdom teeth are impacted, and since they are more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease, most dentists recommend their extraction even in cases where painful symptoms have not yet occurred

Should I Be Worried About Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

Besides being a constant source of pain and discomfort, wisdom teeth that haven’t erupted properly can cause more severe dental and medical problems. Because it is difficult to properly clean the area around a tooth that hasn’t fully erupted, impacted third molars can increase the possibility of catching a gum disease called pericoronitis. Such condition can result in pain, inflammation, while in more severe cases it can lead to the loss of the surrounding teeth.

The problem of maintaining proper dental hygiene in areas surrounding an impacted tooth also increases the chance of decay and cavities because of the harmful bacteria and food that gets trapped between the gum and partially erupted tooth.

Another thing to worry about when dealing with an impacted tooth is the damage it can cause to other teeth, especially if it is growing toward the second molar. Apart from increasing the risk of infection in that area, the pressure caused by an impacted tooth can disrupt the normal position of other teeth in the jaw and lead to overcrowding.

A rare but potentially severe complication is the development of a cyst, a fluid-filled sac within the jawbone. Cysts can deal severe damage to the jawbone, teeth and nerves, and if left untreated, may even lead to the development of benign tumors.

Even if you are not experiencing painful symptoms at the moment, an impacted tooth can cause complications in the future. That is why we recommend having them removed with minimal complications before infection or inflammation occurs

Do I Need A Consultation Before Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Before you undergo the extraction procedure, you will have to stop by for a consultation so that we can determine whether the benefits of removing the tooth outweigh the costs in your case. During the consultation, our dentist will assess your general medical condition and explain to you the extraction procedure itself as well as the post-operative process.

Once our dentist reviews your full mouth x-ray (OPG), which can be taken free of charge, you will be given a final assessment and diagnosis, after which you will be all ready to have your teeth removed.

Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

or some people, there is not enough space in the jaw for a third molar to erupt at a right angle, so a number of different dental problems can occur in relation to this condition, such as:

Infection – When the teeth come through the gums only partially due to the insufficient space for eruption, there is a high chance that inflammation and infection of the soft tissue (pericoronitis) around the third molar will occur. This condition comes in its chronic or acute form, and usually affects people aged between 20 and 40 years old, resulting in severe pain and swelling. A dentist will often prescribe antibiotics before deciding to remove the impacted tooth
Damage – No matter how well you brush and floss, a lot of harmful bacteria and food parts will get stuck in the area around an impacted third molar. As a result, the adjacent, second molar could also be affected, increasing the chances of tooth decay and gum disease.
Disease – In rarer cases, non-infectious diseases such as cysts and tumors could also form as a result of the impacted tooth. Cysts are fluid-filled pockets inside the jawbone with the potential to cause a great deal of damage to nearby teeth, bones and nerves. This kind of condition will usually require surgical removal of tissue and bone.
Crowding – For a long period, dental experts believed that third molars directly contributed to crowding and overlapping of the teeth in front of the jaw by pushing those right next to them. The theory has since been disproven through years of well-documented research, but there is still a belief among some people that retained wisdom teeth will contribute to the movement of the front teeth.
How To Manage Your Anxiety About Wisdom Teeth Surgery?

Dental anxiety is common among patients and it is affecting millions of people every day. No matter if you heard some bad experiences with extraction procedures or not, it is entirely reasonable to be scared.

This is precisely why we have equipped our staff members with knowledge and patience to lead you through this process and answer any concerns you might have with ease. We also worked hard to develop a procedure that will help minimize any complications after surgery including pain or swelling.

Here at Winning Smiles Dental Surgery, we fully comprehend the anxiety patients might have prior to the extraction procedure and the impact it has on the procedure itself. This is why we offer our answers to any question you might have along with sedation dentistry that would soothe even the most worried
anxious patients.

What Happens On The Day Wisdom Teeth Are Removed?

Preoperative instructions:

– Make sure to wear comfortable clothes
– Dental hygiene is strongly recommended before the procedure
– Complete health is strongly advised, patients need to report any infections or other health problems so that we can reschedule your appointment
– Eating is allowed, however, we kindly recommend a lighter diet
– Company during the procedure is optional, not necessary

The time frame of the procedure is around 30 to 60 minutes. Thanks to many improvements in the dental and medical field, possible outcomes of the wisdom teeth extraction and post-operative recovery have been reduced to a minimum.

You might feel some discomfort a couple of hours after the procedure, once the local anesthesia wears off. Patients are kindly advised to take Nurofen or Panadol immediately if they experience any postoperative pain. In case the recommended medication is not reducing your discomfort, feel free to take stronger pain medication our staff members have prescribed. At this part of the recovery, we usually include Panadeine Forte which will significantly reduce the pain you might feel.

What Happens Immediately After Surgery?

  • The gauze your dentist will place over the surgical area should be there for at least 20 minutes to prevent the forming of a blood clot.
  • Touching your wound or rinsing it is strongly prohibited since this could damage the already formed clot and possibly cause bleeding
  • Use pain medications or antibiotics only as prescribed
  • Avoid increasing your heart rate by exercising or heavy lifting. Resume your daily activities once the pain is reduced to a minimum.

What To Expect After My Wisdom Teeth Surgery?

The level of pain varies and it is entirely individual. Depending on each individual, the feeling may range from mild discomforts to severe pain. Patients can expect approximately two to four days of recovery. To avoid any further problems, patients are strongly advised to follow our post-operative instructions carefully. By following these guidelines, a more comfortable recovery will be ensured.

Pain – We recommend taking your pain medications as prescribed. Please note that the pain following the surgery will subside over a few days. In case the pain persists, you may need further attention, so we advise contacting our office.

Bleeding – During the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery, some bleeding is considered normal. Patients may find some blood in their saliva or the wound during the first couple of days. In case the bleeding gets heavier, follow the instructions you received at our office.

Antibiotics – Antibiotics are commonly used to prevent any possible infection, so in case you have been prescribed with them, strictly follow the dentist’s instruction and stop their intake only in cases of sudden rash or unusual reaction.

Swelling – It is common to experience swelling, the amount you will encounter will be proportional to the level of surgery that was involved. It will appear the first day after your surgery and it will gradually subside over the next 2 to 3 days.

Mild Bruising – Discoloration of the skin is a common post-operative symptom, that will develop within 2 to 3 days after the surgery.

Keep the mouth clean – Usual dental hygiene can be resumed after the first day of recovery. We strongly recommended rinsing with warm water and a teaspoon of salt after every meal.

Diet – Avoid any sucking motion that could affect already formed blood clot.

Sutures – They are placed in the area of surgery to minimize post-operative bleeding and to help healing. Sometimes they can become dislodged and this is no cause for alarm. Just remove the suture form your mouth and discard it. There will be a cavity where the tooth was removed. The cavity will gradually fill in with the new tissue over the next month. In the mean time, the area should be kept clean especially after meals with salt-water rinses or a toothbrush.

What Are Possible Complications Of Wisdom Teeth Surgery?

Same as any medical procedure, the surgical removal of wisdom teeth comes with its own set of postoperative risks and complications:
● Dry socket (alveolar osteitis) is one of the most common complications following this type of procedure. It happens 3-5 days after the tooth is removed, when a blood clot fails to develop, or becomes dislodged.
● Nerve injury – In rarer cases, parts of the trigeminal nerve could get injured, leading to a tingling sensation and numbness in some areas of the face and mouth.
● Infection accompanied by high body temperature and persistent pain and swelling.
● Persistent bleeding.

10 Reasons You Need to Visit a Dentist Every 6 Months

Dental hygiene is necessary just like any other part of the body, however, general check-ups from a dentist is still not a popular phenomenon among the general public. There is a common notion that the need to visit a dentist occurs only if you have a severe dental issue such as a toothache or you need the beautification of your teeth. People usually think that they need to see a dentist only for oral diseases and not for teeth and gum health.

10 Reasons You Need to Visit a Dentist Every 6 Months

Importance of Regular Dental Visits

A survey by The Australian Dental Association showed that 65% of people have not seen a dentist in two years while 16% don’t have the opportunity to visit a dentist. Prof. David Manton, Chair of the Australian Oral Health Committee, emphasises the importance of maintaining oral health through regular dental visits and be proactive about our dental hygiene.

There are certain factors involved pertaining to the risk of dental problems such as tooth decay, swollen gums, tooth fillings, fractured teeth and many more. The fact that high-risk patients need more frequent visits than low-risk patients is determined on the basis of potential risk factors identified by a dentist.

Reasons to have a Dental Visit

As discussed earlier, dental visits on a regular basis is an essential activity for everyone regardless of age. There are various benefits associated with dental check-ups that can keep your gums and teeth healthy and strong for a long time.

1. Pain Free Dentist Techniques
Earlier, dental treatments were considered to be frightening as the techniques were contemporary. Now a days, dentists use technologically advanced tools and techniques such as sleep dentistry, IV sedation, local anaesthetics, invisible braces, invisible aligners, dentures and many others. The simple and pain free dental processes motivate people to have regular dental check-ups. As people can recover quickly from these advanced procedures and feel less pain, therefore, they can avoid any potential dental problems in the future. They can get fast and efficient treatments with such new painless techniques.

2. Early Diagnosis of Oral Diseases
Regular visits to your dentist ensure early detection of any potential dental risk. People usually ignore their oral hygiene and they just consider brushing their teeth as the only way to keep your oral hygiene intact. This carelessness can also lead to emergency dental such as abscess, endodontic, dental implant, and severe infection. However, it is a rarely known fact that dental problems can also lead to bigger diseases such as dementia in elderly, diabetes, osteoporosis and many more. Therefore, it is important to consider a dental visit every few months as guided by your dentist to identify any risks involved.

3. Irregular Eating Habits
Nowadays our food mostly comprises of fast food, packed, tinned or inorganic food. We also seldom adopt healthy food options which can lead to various dental health problems such as tartar, swollen or bleeding gums and cavities. Simple brushing habit is not food enough to keep your teeth healthy. Hence, it is advisable to pay a visit to the dentist regularly.

4. Dental Services Available Round the Year
There are many dentists open 7 days a week so you can decide what day and time is most suitable according to your schedule. Weekends are also available with many dentists, that way you can plan a family visit when everyone is free from work or school. If you are a busy person and cannot take out the time for a dental check up then you can look for special dental offers that occur on special occasions. There are a few dentists open on public holidays like Easter, Christmas and even New Years Eve. Thus, it can be a good time for your dental check-up for when you are too busy around the year. In fact, it can be the right time to have a detailed check up since there are less patients and the doctor can examine your problems in detail.
