Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom Teeth Extraction May Be Necessary

Sometimes your mouth simply has no room for incoming wisdom teeth, and if left untreated, problems such as jaw pain, tooth shifting and sinus problems may occur.

Wisdom teeth, also known as your “third molars”usually come in between the ages of 17 – 24.

Many times they come in only partially, sideways or impacted due to limited space in your mouth. If this occurs, your wisdom teeth may need to be extracted.

If payment is a worry, we can work with you financially to set up a payment plan that fits within your budget as well.

In the extraction procedure and after:

An anaesthetic is applied to the wisdom teeth area and surrounding tissue.

Once you’re completely numb, the wisdom teeth are removed

After the procedure, bleeding and swelling may occur. Apply gauze to bleeding areas and use ice to reduce swelling. You will be prescribed medication for pain as well. Maintain a cold liquid and soft food diet for a few days after, and avoid brushing the extracted tooth area for the first 24 hours
