Wisdom Teeth Removal Pickering
The proper title for a wisdom tooth is the third molar. They are the furthest teeth from the center of your mouth, and they tend to be the last teeth to break the gumline. These molars get their nickname due to when they arrive - typically in a person's late teens or early twenties. If there is little to no room in your mouth for wisdom teeth, they tend to be crowded and misaligned, resulting in pain and discomfort.
Untreated third molars can cause chronic pain, as well as damage to the gums or jaw. In rare instances, wisdom teeth enter the gumline and cause no issues. However, if your wisdom teeth cause create discomfort, extraction is typically the easiest solution.
Wisdom teeth removal is now a common dental surgery. Though wisdom teeth extraction will cause difficulty in chewing and normal activities during healing, the long-term benefits are well worth the procedure. At Splash Dental we will ensure you are properly instructed on aftercare once your surgery is complete, and our sedation options are available for our most anxious patients. If you follow our instructions you will feel healthy in just a few days!
If you are concerned that your wisdom teeth may soon arrive, or if you are already experiencing discomfort, please visit us so we can assess their position in your mouth. Our preventative x-rays can aid in this process. If extraction is necessary, we will make the process as comfortable and respectful as we can.
