Wisdom Tooth Removal

What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth is the term given to our third molars, and are just as useful to us as our first and second molars if they grow in properly. In some cases wisdom teeth, however, we do not have enough room in our jaws to allow them to grow in completely. As a result wisdom teeth may become impacted or trapped in the jawbone, or pushed up against adjacent teeth. If they are impacted or partially impacted, they may become infected and cause significant discomfort.

Indications Wisdom Teeth Should be Removed

  • Infection in or around impacted or even unerupted wisdom teeth
  • Gum disease being propagated due to the position of wisdom teeth
  • Formation of a cyst or tumor around the tooth
  • Decay or erosion of adjacent teeth
  • Crowding or displacement of adjacent teeth
  • Interference with the bite
  • Infection caused by not being able to keep wisdom teeth clean

The Treatment 

Treatment usually involves removal of the offending tooth or teeth. The type and length of the surgery will depend on how developed your wisdom teeth are and their position. Impacted wisdom teeth will require a small incision in the gum to access the tooth.

 Please contact us for your complimentary no-obligation consultation to find out more about your particular needs.

After Care

To ensure your gums heal properly and comfortably it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided to you by your dentist. You can resume normal activities after 4-5 days.  For after care advice see Patient Education.
