Wisdom Tooth Removal

What are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are your third set of molars which don’t tend to come in until between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth are just as useful to us as our first and second molars, if they grow in properly. Often, people don’t have enough room in their jaws for their wisdom teeth. This can cause the new teeth to become impacted or trapped in the jawbone, or cause them to push against other teeth. Trapped wisdom teeth can be very painful and may lead to infection if not removed.

The Digital Difference

Wisdom tooth removal may be the solution to your pain and discomfort.

Treatment usually involves the removal of the offending tooth or teeth. The type and length of the surgery will depend on the size of your wisdom teeth and their position. Impacted wisdom teeth will require a small incision in the gum to access the tooth. Our experienced team uses highly-specialized tools to perform sterile treatment as quickly and precisely as possible. To ensure your gums heal properly and comfortably you will receive personalized aftercare instructions from your dentist. You should expect to resume normal activities after 2 - 3 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Your Wisdom Teeth and Wisdom Tooth Removal

Why do my wisdom teeth hurt?

Wisdom teeth may cause pain and discomfort for a number of reasons:

1.       There may not be enough space in your jaw for new molars.

2.       Your wisdom teeth might be partially erupted; you’re teething.

3.       You may have an infection.

4.       Your tooth may be impacted. An impacted tooth is a tooth which has become blocked from erupting through the gum. A partially impacted tooth has begun to erupt. A fully impacted tooth is not able to erupt at all.

5.       Your new teeth might be interfering with adjacent teeth. Putting pressure on them or causing them to shift.

If you are in pain or experiencing discomfort it is important to see your dentist.

How long before I am back to normal?

After a wisdom tooth extraction your dentist will provide you with aftercare instructions which are specific to you.

Dr. Singh is the best dentist I have ever had.  He is professional and thorough and fully equipped with the latest cutting edge dental care technology.  He makes sure that you understand all of your options.  Great friendly staff as well.  No one likes to visit a dentist - but we all have to from time to time.  When that time comes - visit Raj and his team.  They will look after you.

Staff is amazing and they take the time to plan out the best care for you. Their technology is impressive and makes you feel like you really are getting the best care out there. Dr. Raj is amazing and really knows and understands the best treatments for you. He has also selected an amazing team that you feel just as safe in anyone’s hands. Angie is also so helpful and knowledgeable as your treatment coordinator and makes sure you have all of the information you need to make informed decisions. Couldn’t be happier with my experience there.

If you haven't been to Vitality Dentistry - GO!
I had my dentist for years and then one day tried Vitality.  Best thing I ever did.  All the staff are friendly and helpful.  The hygienist are all great, they customize your appointments, they give you options, if there is something you are not comfortable with they will change their approach. I used to take the little tablets to calm you before each cleaning at my old dentist, not anymore.  I just go in.  Lately I have been using Helen and she is fabulous...ok, she is a perfectionist so maybe a little more prodding but your teeth come out sparkling.  Thanks to everyone at Vitality for making my dentist trips relaxing and pain free.

The Best Place I have ever visited for my dental care throughout the GTA.
Top of the line latest technology equipment which allows to have the most precise, painless and the most comfortable procedure possible.
I am 'speechless' for the care I was given by the doctor, the staff and and the Coordinator-Heavenly and Blissful.

Absolutely amazing service, I have been a customer for over 30 years and my kids have been seeing Dr Raj since they were babies. Now my kids are 19 years and 21 years old and still seeing him. Thank you for making their experience a good one.. The "Dentist" is not a bad word in our home.

I will say definitively that no one ever likes to go see the dentist, but this place gets everything absolutely right.  They've got the friendliest staff that's always very helpful and professional.  Everything is always explained in detail and you can genuinely see that they care about you as a patient.  Best dentist I've ever been to!

This place is awesome. All the best staff work here. Dr. Singh is like a giant teddy bear. Very nice and gentle and I should know with all the work he has done in my mouth. He is always keeping up with the new technology and techniques and they make it easy to come back.
If you are looking for a new dentist you have to check this place out.

Been a patient for  3 years.   Have always had a great experience.  Been with Karen last few visits.  She is very professional.  I feel very confident as she is very thorough.  I look forward to my visits as I know I'm in good hands.
