Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth usually appear during the late teens or early twenties. Often there is no room for them to come through the gum and they will only partially emerge. When this happens the tooth can become problematic. They can be very difficult to clean and are prone to decay, gum disease and recurring infections. They can also cause issues to the neighbouring teeth by damaging or crowding. The best option with wisdom teeth is to have them evaluated, along with x-rays, to assess whether they need to be removed and if so, to identify the most suitable method to remove them.

 

Teeth require fillings when a part has been lost to decay or has broken away and needs to be restored. When fillings are required, there are a couple of choices...

 

Root canal

Inside a tooth is a small, fine space called the root canal. This canal contains dental pulp which consists of nerves and blood vessels. If this pulp becomes diseased or dies a toothache may occur. There are a number of conditions that can lead to irreversable damage of the dental pulp, including: decay, deep fillings, trauma, breakages and infection. Sometimes there is no apparent cause. Teeth in this condition can usually be restored. Root canal treatment can retain a tooth which if extracted could require more extensive treatment for the rest of the mouth in the future.
