Restore The Natural Health And Function Of Your Smile With Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you're like most people, you probably have wisdom teeth – even if they haven't erupted yet. And chances are, you will need to have them removed at some point in your life. At Roseborough Dental in Mississauga, ON, wisdom teeth removal is necessary for most people.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in, typically appearing in your late teens or early twenties. For some people, wisdom teeth cause no problems, and they can chew and brush like normal. But wisdom teeth need to be removed for most people because there is not enough room in the mouth. When wisdom teeth don't have enough space to come in, they are said to be impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause many problems, including pain, infection, and damage to other teeth.
How are wisdom teeth removed?
We will begin by taking X-rays of your mouth to determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted and need removal. Wisdom teeth removal is typically done under local or general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during the procedure. We will make small incisions in your gums and remove the wisdom teeth. Sometimes, the wisdom teeth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces to be removed.
After extracting your wisdom teeth, you can expect some swelling and discomfort. Our dentist will prescribe pain medication and give you specific instructions on caring for your mouth after surgery, which usually involves gentle rinsing and avoiding hard or chewy foods. Most people recover from wisdom teeth removal within a week or two and can return to normal daily activities.
