What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars located at the back of the mouth. Typically, adults have four wisdom teeth, one in each quadrant of the mouth. These teeth are called “wisdom teeth” as they usually start to emerge during late adolescence or early adulthood, around the ages of 17 to 25, a time when a person is considered to be wiser and more mature. However, the eruption age can vary among individuals.

While some people have enough space in their jaw to accommodate these teeth without any issues, others may experience problems due to lack of space, leading to impacted wisdom teeth, which may require removal to prevent complications.

Signs and Symptoms of Wisdom Teeth Problems

Experiencing an impacted wisdom tooth can be an excruciating ordeal. Therefore, recognizing the key indicators of wisdom teeth problems becomes crucial for early detection and prompt intervention. Here, we outline the signs and symptoms to watch out for.

Pain and Discomfort

One of the most common symptoms is pain or discomfort in the back of the mouth where the wisdom teeth are located. This pain can vary in intensity and may be persistent or intermittent.

Swelling and Tenderness

Swelling and tenderness in the gums around the area of the impacted wisdom teeth may occur. This can result from inflammation or infection.

Red or Bleeding Gums

Gums around impacted wisdom teeth may appear red, swollen, or bleed easily, especially during brushing or flossing.

Jaw Stiffness

Individuals with problematic wisdom teeth may experience jaw stiffness or soreness, especially when opening and closing their mouth.

Bad Breath

Accumulation of food particles and bacteria around the partially erupted wisdom teeth can lead to bad breath or an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

Crowding and Shifting of Teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth may push against neighbouring teeth, leading to crowding or misalignment of the existing teeth.

How Are Wisdom Teeth Removed?

The wisdom teeth removal procedure is a common dental surgery aimed at extracting one or more impacted or problematic wisdom teeth. Here’s an overview of the wisdom teeth removal process:

Pre-operative Consultation

Before the surgery, the dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the patient’s mouth, including X-rays, to assess the position and condition of the wisdom teeth. The dentist will also discuss the procedure, explain potential risks, and answer any questions the patient may have.


To ensure a comfortable and pain-free experience during the procedure, the dentist will administer appropriate anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of the case and the patient’s preference, local anaesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or intravenous sedation may be used.

Incision and Tooth Extraction

Once the anaesthesia takes effect, the dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue covering the impacted tooth. If the tooth is partially erupted, it may be gently rocked back and forth to loosen it from the surrounding tissues. In some cases, the tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces for easier removal.

Suturing and Gauze Placement

After the wisdom tooth is successfully removed, the dentist will place sutures to close the incision site and promote proper healing. Gauze pads are then placed over the extraction site to control bleeding.

Post-operative Care

The patient will receive detailed post-operative care instructions, including how to manage pain and swelling, how to keep the extraction site clean, and dietary restrictions (such as eating soft foods) during the initial recovery period.

A follow-up appointment will then be scheduled to monitor the healing process and ensure there are no complications.

The Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removal

The cost of wisdom tooth removal depends on the complexity of the extraction.

For a simple extraction of a single wisdom tooth, the cost ranges from AUD $200 to $300 per tooth. If the extraction requires a surgical approach due to impaction or other complications, the cost can be higher, ranging from AUD $400 to $600 per tooth. If all four wisdom teeth need to be removed, the total cost can vary between AUD $1000 to $3000.

It’s best to consult with us to get an accurate estimate based on your specific situation and any additional factors that may affect the cost.

What our clients say

Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.

Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!

Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!

What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.

I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.

Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.
