Wisdom Teeth Removal at Delight Dental Spa

Illustration of wisdom teethIf you’re in your 30s, 20s or have a child that’s a teenager, it’s likely that you’ve experienced at least some mild pressure or irritation caused by wisdom teeth.

The third molars (wisdom teeth) tend to erupt sometime during a person’s mid-teens but are fully developed by around 30 years of age at the latest. If there isn’t enough room for them to erupt properly, they can cause:

  • Pain
  • Facial swelling
  • Crowded teeth throughout the mouth
  • An increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Repetitive infections
  • Cysts within the bone

Do You Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Because wisdom teeth are at an increased chance of developing infections, it’s usually best to have them removed if they’re not erupting as they ought to. Impacted or tilted third molars typically lead to damage in their neighbouring teeth as well, so proactive wisdom tooth removal can be beneficial to your overall oral health.

To assess the situation of your wisdom teeth, we’ll take a low-radiation digital X-ray of your jaws. When we have a full view of your entire oral anatomy, we can determine if an extraction is necessary.

Keeping You Comfortable

As with any type of tooth removal, we want your wisdom teeth extraction to be a comfortable experience. Depending on the extent of your oral surgery needs, we may be able to complete the procedure here in our office or prefer to refer you to a nearby surgeon.

Thanks to painless anaesthetic techniques and comfortable sedation dentistry, we’ll be able to help you feel more relaxed from start to finish. We believe that the key to providing gentle dentistry starts with a high level of communication between our team and each patient.
