We believe that wisdom teeth surgery need not have complications, undue worry or anxiety, or extreme costs. Our specialist surgical suites, our specialist trained staff, our private hospital partners, and our anesthetists are all committed to providing you the best care possible with your wisdom tooth surgery.
Prevention is better than cure. Before your wisdom teeth have completed development, and before they have even been given a chance to erupt... they should be assessed with a bulk-billed (free) OPG (dental x-ray).
To eliminate the costs of assessing your specific needs, at Wisdom Teeth Australia your wisdom teeth will be assessed by a specialist without any cost to you (all pre-paid wisdom teeth consultations are eligible for a FULL Medicare rebate).
If though, you already have problems with your wisdom teeth, like a jaw cyst, or infection, or frank pain... Any additional procedure will attract Medicare rebates (if you are medically un-insured), or full-private hospital-insurance rebates (with treatment in a private hospital)... whatever you decide.
Remember... you need a referral from your dentist or medical GP to see us first... Let us assess you, and let Medicare assist you with your costs.
Should you let sleeping dogs lie? Are those impacted wisdom teeth better left undisturbed? Will YOUR impacted wisdom teeth ever cause problems in the future? Will your wisdom teeth ever erupt, be healthy, and functional and ever cause a problem?
The universal answer to all these questions is... WE DON"T KNOW
Tomorrow's weather is hard enough to predict. Even super computer modelling to predict next year's weather is a pipe dream.
We cannot absolutely predict anything... But we do know that if you wait long enough, it will rain, it will be sunny, you will get hail, and in some places it will snow at certain times of the year.
Wisdom teeth assessments are done on an individualised basis. The process involves you, an x-ray, and the smartest person in wisdom teeth surgery you can find.
That person, should know the most about wisdom teeth, because they are a trained wisdom teeth specialist, and who has treated thousands of people from the perspective of a trained wisdom teeth specialist, as well as being a trained surgeon, doctor and dentist.
Prevention starts with a personalised assessment, by the person who will actually TREAT you.
And at Wisdom Teeth Australia, we make that assessment process FULLY Medicare rebated... as long as you come with a referral, and have pre-paid for your consultation.
A wisdom tooth specialist is someone who has been recognised by the WHOLE profession of dentistry in that country as being a specialist.
The way they get that recognition, is after a long process of training in oral & maxillofacial surgery. Eventually after formal training of many years, and formal examination by other recognised specialists, they are awarded specialist recognition by either their medical or dental registration boards (and sometimes even both).
Wisdom teeth specialists are actually oral & maxillofacial surgeons. And to check your wisdom teeth specialist is actually a registered specialist, you should check on-line with the relevent medical or dental boards in your country.
At Wisdom Teeth Australia, we employ specialist oral & maxillofacial surgeons, as well as practice registrars.
Our practice registrars are fully registered in dentistry, and are trained in wisdom teeth surgery by oral & maxillofacial surgeons. They will only operate on the simplest wisdom teeth cases (at much lower fees), and always with full surgical specialist support.
Our specialists are avaialble for treatment for both complex and simple wisdom teeth surgery operations. If your case is simple, you can opt for treatment by a practice registrar (cheaper), or by a specialist (more expensive).
But if your case is deemed complex, then we wnat you to have the best treatment possible, and therefore your treatment will ALWAYS preferentially be by a specialist.
There are risks from keeping wisdom teeth, and there are risks from removing wisdom teeth.
By removing your wisdom teeth, you are taking away the risks of keeping them. Simple.
But the process of removing them, creates "surgical" risks. Just a few of these risks include infection, prolonged (or even permanent) numbness of your lips, chin, tongue or cheeks, and possibly also pain.
All risks are personal. They are personal to you, and they are personal to the person performing the surgery. That is why most people want the best person to perform any surgery, in order to minimise the risks of surgery.
Who is the best person to remove your wisdom teeth? Is it going to be a general dentist, who performs a lot of wisdom teeth operations?
Will it be a practice registrar, under guidance and support by an in-house specialist surgeon?
Or is it going to be a recognised wisdom teeth specialist, and who is a recognised part of the speciality of oral & maxillofacial surgery?
That's up to you to decide. But we hope you choose us.
