Emergency Wisdom Teeth Removal in Melbourne
Problems with impacted teeth can remain dormant for a long period, with symptoms only being noticeable when patients are rundown, stressed or in a state of ill health. In some cases, it’s possible to leave impacted molars in place indefinitely without any trouble, but in many situations wisdom teeth removal is necessary. The staff at Dental on Clarendon in South Melbourne can provide expert advice and professional care for wisdom teeth extraction in Melbourne.
Patients should note that pain associated with impacted molars can also be associated with infection. Symptoms of infection include:
- Reddened, inflamed gums around the impacted tooth
- Difficulties with opening your mouth and swallowing
- Soreness and general fever
- Pus from the gum line
If you have any of these symptoms, we suggest you contact our wisdom teeth dentist in Melbourne for an appointment for possible wisdom teeth removal. Our South Melbourne clinic will provide you with the best advice and care for your circumstances.

Commonly Asked Questions
Wisdom teeth (also known as third molars) are the last teeth positioned in the upper and lower jaw and are the last teeth to erupt. They normally erupt when the patient is in their late teen years or early twenties. As the jaw is usually too small to comfortably accommodate these new teeth, their eruption often causes pain and other complications.
With wisdom teeth, Melbourne residents can experience a number of problems. Dental on Clarendon provides wisdom teeth extraction in Melbourne that can help patients to overcome various issues, including:
- Bone loss
- Tooth damage
- Tooth decay
- Pus coming from the gum
- Difficulty in opening the mouth and swallowing
- Cyst formation
The wisdom teeth removal cost at our Melbourne clinic depends on how complex your treatment will be. The less complex it is, the more affordable your wisdom teeth extraction at our Melbourne clinic will be. The wisdom teeth removal cost for procedures using general anaesthetic are often more expensive.
Most cases where a wisdom teeth extraction at our Melbourne clinic is required can be performed by one of our general dentists. However, we also have an oral surgeon on our staff if you require a complex treatment either at our clinic or in hospital. Dr. Tom Jaunay works at Dental on Clarendon two days a week as a Maxillofacial Surgeon and can assist with dental extractions, dental implants and oral surgery. With over 10 years of experience, Dr. Jaunay is passionate about understanding and realising the expectations of his patients.
You will probably experience some level of discomfort, as well as swelling and bleeding, after undergoing a wisdom teeth extraction. While your mouth is healing, you have to be careful to not dislodge the blood clot or injure your gums. Swelling can be alleviated by using an ice pack or frozen vegetable bag. Our wisdom teeth dentist in Melbourne will use an anaesthetic during the procedure to minimise any pain you feel.
