Wisdom tooth pain relief
If you're feeling wisdom tooth pain, there's probably already a problem with your teeth. Wisdom tooth pain is a common problem that can affect teenagers and adults. It could be a temporary pain that will go away on its own or a symptom of a more serious problem that needs the attention of a dentist.
During your consultation with our Brisbane dentists, we'll try to find out what's causing your pain and draw up your personalised treatment plan. If your problem is related to an impacted wisdom tooth or teeth crowding, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal.

What causes wisdom tooth pain?
Wisdom tooth pain can have a number of causes. Some of the common reasons are:
How are wisdom teeth removed?
If we think you could benefit from wisdom teeth removal, we'll explain what this treatment involves so you can make a decision you're happy with.
We perform wisdom tooth extraction using local anaesthesia to help numb the pain, or you can choose another sedation option if you feel anxious about dental treatments.
If your wisdom tooth has already erupted, it may only need a simple extraction. However, wisdom tooth removal is often a more complex procedure, as the tooth may be stuck inside the gum or difficult to access. We may need to perform oral surgery to access the tooth and remove it in pieces.
What are the risks?
We use sterilised dental instruments to prevent bacteria from entering your gums during wisdom tooth removal and other treatments.
Your mouth may feel sore or become swollen for a few days after your treatment. This may be managed with pain relief and anti-inflammatory medication and should subside after a few days. If you still feel any pain after that, or notice other unusual symptoms, make an appointment to see our dentists.
What does wisdom tooth removal cost?
Wisdom tooth pain relief treatments and wisdom tooth removal can vary in cost, depending on the type of treatment you choose and how complex your situation is. We can give you a full breakdown of costs after we examine your mouth and create your treatment plan.
We'll also give you information about the health funds we accept and our payment plans to help you manage the cost of your treatment.
