Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Vaughan, ON

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Near You

Wisdom teeth are normally the last teeth to develop in the back corners of the mouth. They usually come in during your late teens or early twenties. If wisdom teeth develop correctly, they are beneficial to the alignment of your other teeth, and you will be able to live your life without even knowing that you have them. If wisdom teeth are misaligned, however, they can be detrimental to the adjacent teeth, your jawbone, or nerves. They can overcrowd the back of your mouth and become impacted themselves. If you leave misaligned wisdom teeth untreated, you can expect to experience a wide range of symptoms, including chronic pain, swelling, and sore gums. In the case of misalignment, wisdom teeth can position themselves in many ways, making them hard to reach and difficult to clean. In many cases, partially erupted wisdom teeth leave openings that bacteria can enter. Problematic wisdom teeth are more susceptible to the accumulation of plaque and tartar which, in turn, can cause tooth decay and cavities.

Treatment

When it comes to misaligned or partially erupted wisdom teeth, the most common and effective treatment is the removal of the teeth. If you visit the dentist at least twice per year, your dentist will be able to detect potential issues with your wisdom teeth and remove them before you run into any problems.There is a standard procedure for wisdom tooth extraction near you. Although removal of all four wisdom teeth may not be necessary, your dentist may still recommend removing all of them to eliminate the risk of future problems.

Before the procedure, your oral health care provider will numb the tooth and the surrounding tissue with a local anesthetic. You and your dentist may also decide on sedation to provide you with some relief from anxiety. A wisdom tooth that is underneath the gums may require removal in sections.

Once your wisdom teeth are out, your dentist will clean the area to prevent infection and to speed up the recovery process. Recovery can take a few days.For the first 24 hours after the procedure, you may experience some facial swelling and numbness. Your dentist will prescribe pain medication and antibiotics and may recommend that you only eat soft foods.

After the procedure, keep brushing your teeth but avoid the teeth next to the treated area. On the second day, you can brush them gently. Stay away from commercial mouth rinse during the recovery period to avoid irritation of your gums.
