Enjoy A Strong And Healthy Smile With Wisdom Teeth Removal

While having teeth removed can seem daunting for some people, at Aurora Bayview North Family Dental in Aurora, ON, the extraction of wisdom teeth is a common and often necessary procedure that can prevent long-term oral health issues. By addressing potential problems early, you can experience improved comfort, reduce your risk of infection, and enjoy better oral hygiene.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are also known as third molars. They are the last teeth to emerge in the back of the mouth, usually erupting in the late teens or early twenties. While some people are lucky and never experience issues with their wisdom teeth, the majority of us may face complications such as misalignment, overcrowding, infection, and impaction. These issues can cause pain, swelling, and even damage to adjacent teeth.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The extraction procedure depends on the position of the wisdom teeth and their stage of development. Our dentist begins by making an incision in the gum to expose the tooth and bone beneath. Sometimes, the tooth must be divided into sections to make it easier to take out. Once the tooth is completely removed, the area is cleaned out, and the wound is sutured, though not all procedures require this.

What are the benefits of wisdom teeth removal?

Extraction can eliminate the pain and discomfort caused by wisdom teeth. It also prevents potential damage to neighbouring teeth, reduces the risk of infection setting in, and lessens the chance of developing cysts or tumours around the site of the wisdom teeth. Crowded or impacted teeth can be challenging to keep clean. By removing the wisdom teeth, you can enjoy an improvement in your oral hygiene. Following removal, most people can resume normal activities within a few days, although the gums may take several weeks to heal fully.
