One treatment often provided by our team is wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth removal is a common option for patients experiencing difficulties with their third molars. These teeth are known for becoming problematic for many of our patients during their late teen or early adult years. The teeth can either become impacted in the mouth and unable to erupt or they may erupt and contribute to a higher risk of periodontal disease because they are too far back in the mouth to properly clean. Adult humans do not require their wisdom teeth so removal is often the option recommended by a dental professional.
The type of removal needed for wisdom teeth will greatly depend on whether or not they have erupted through the gum line. Teeth that have erupted through the gum line will require a simple extraction. This type of extraction uses leverage to help in easing the tooth out from the bone. However, if the wisdom teeth are impacted and stuck underneath the gum line, they need to be removed with oral surgery under anesthetics. To determine which method is best, patients will have a series of x-rays completed during which the dentist is able to check to see the positioning of the wisdom teeth for a better diagnosis and decision.
We strive to empower you, to make well-informed decisions about your oral health through individual consultation.Request an Appointment
