Wisdom Teeth and What To Do About Them

This ANZAOMS patient education pamphlet provides information on the surgical removal of third molars.

The topics discussed include:
- anatomy of the jaw and teeth
- reasons for wisdom tooth extraction (such as cysts, pain, infection and resorption cavity)
- early removal of wisdom teeth
- important considerations prior to undergoing surgery, such as the type of anaesthesia used.

The surgical procedure is described in detail with accompanying anatomical illustrations. This leaflet can be a useful tool for patients considering surgical treatment as the benefits, risks and limitations of surgery are discussed in detail. The possible complications of surgery are listed on page 4 to assist the informed-consent process.

Mi-tec publishes 8 patient education pamphlets for The Australian And New Zealand Association Of Oral And Maxillofacial Surgeons (ANZAOMS). The objective of each pamphlet is to assist oral and maxillofacial surgeons with their informed consent process, reduce the medico-legal risk of failure to inform and improve patient outcomes. The pamphlets serve as valuable resources for surgeons in establishing a process of communication with patients.

The pamphlets are described in plain English and contain medical illustrations and images to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The pamphlets are 2 or 4 pages and are printed in colour on high quality A4 sheets.
