Why Wisdom Teeth Require Removal

Illustration of wisdom teethWisdom teeth usually begin developing in the teenage years and may continue into a person’s late 20s. This third set of molars may never cause any problems, or could require extraction due to complications.

To know whether your wisdom teeth will have to be extracted, it’s necessary to have a consultation with our team. We’ll perform a thorough examination with diagnostics such as X-rays to look at the position of your wisdom teeth. From the examination, we will determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned. Not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth removed, but some people may due to reasons such as:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • The presence of cysts or tumours
  • Crowding caused by pressure from your wisdom teeth
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay that is not restorable

Preparing for Periodontal Therapy or Orthodontics

There are some other situations in which your wisdom teeth may need to be extracted. Removing your wisdom teeth can also be an important step in periodontal therapy or orthodontic treatments. If removal is necessary, we will discuss a variety of sedation choices to make the experience as comfortable as possible. We provide nitrous oxide, prescription medication and general anaesthesia to make sure that you can complete your procedure with ease.

If you aren’t sure which of these options is right for you, we’ll be happy to discuss it with you. After learning more about your needs, we’ll make our best recommendations so that you can get the care you need.
