Wisdom Tooth Removal


Wisdom Tooth Removal

There are usually four wisdom teeth and these are the last to erupt in the mouth. These are the most posteriorly placed adult teeth in the jaws. In general, wisdom teeth will grow out of the gums between the ages of 18 to 24. These teeth are commonly addressed as “troublemakers” as they usually don’t have sufficient space to come out, hence causing problems. Pain associated with erupting wisdom teeth is very common. Nowadays, most people have smaller jaws and there isn’t enough space for these teeth to come out straight or completely. This is more common in the lower jaw than in the upper jaw. Such teeth are commonly referred to as fully impacted or partially impacted. If the wisdom teeth erupt out straight, they do not need to be removed. Wisdom teeth are most often removed if they cause problems or are likely to cause problems in the future.

How do you know if you may need your wisdom tooth removed?

If you are experiencing tooth pain or swelling at the back of your mouth, experiencing headaches, earaches, stiffness or pain in the jaw, feeling an onset of sinus-related issues, or having bleeding or infected gums, it is best to see a dentist and have your mouth examined. We at Floss Dental will first ask you about your symptoms and examine your mouth and jaw. An X-ray is taken to see the position of the teeth in the jaws and any associated pathology with the wisdom teeth. If one or more wisdom teeth need to be removed, this can be done in our clinic. Depending on the severity of the infection, we might prescribe you some antibiotics and pain medications before pulling out your wisdom teeth. Dr. Dhillon and his team specialize in wisdom tooth removal in Surrey and will work with you to ensure your wisdom teeth are removed safely and with the utmost care. We make all arrangements to ensure our patients are comfortable and the whole process is smooth and makes way for a healthy and speedy recovery.
