Wisdom Teeth Removal

Also called the third molars, your wisdom teeth are the last to erupt. This usually takes place during your teenage years or early twenties. If you don’t have sufficient space for your wisdom teeth, they can cause problems like crowding or impaction. You also may experience pain or discomfort. At Exceptional Dental Care, we can remove wisdom teeth during a comfortable procedure.

During regular checkups, we can monitor your wisdom teeth to see how they’re developing. With X-rays, we can see their precise position and determine if their removal is in order. If so, the X-rays will serve as a guide to complete the removal quickly and efficiently.

Why Wisdom Teeth May Require Removal

Illustration of wisdom teethHere are some common reasons why people need to have their wisdom teeth taken out:

  • Impacted teeth
  • Crowding and misalignment
  • Partially erupted teeth
  • The development of gum disease or cavities
  • Pain and swelling
  • Lack of space

As your wisdom teeth try to break through, they can press into the neighbouring teeth. This action produces trauma in the rest of your teeth. The symptoms that you experience may not go away or will worsen until you have the wisdom teeth extracted.

What to Expect During a Wisdom Teeth Extraction

If we’ve determined that your wisdom teeth should be removed, we’ll administer anaesthesia so that you will be comfortable and won’t feel anything during the procedure. We will only proceed when you feel ready. If you would like laughing gas (nitrous oxide), we can provide that as well. We can also arrange for an anaesthetist to come in if you prefer a deeper form of sedation.
