Wisdom teeth are commonly known as the third molars. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located behind the molars. Wisdom teeth are not shaped like other teeth, and can cause some pretty severe problems and pain if left untreated.
At City Square Dental in Mississauga we offer innovative solutions to wisdom tooth problems.
Our experienced dentist will determine whether wisdom tooth extraction is required or if the wisdom teeth can be preserved and left in tact.
Please book an appointment at our wisdom tooth dental clinic in Mississauga to find out the best solutions to your individual wisdom tooth concerns.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
When wisdom teeth are jammed up against other teeth or are incapable of escaping, the wisdom teeth are termed as being “impacted”. Dental research shows that 9/10 people at some point in their life have at least one impacted wisdom tooth, which is usually a result of a lack of space within the mouth. Impacted teeth are known to lead to numerous problems which include difficulty maintaining dental hygiene, pain, tooth crowding, infection or injury to adjacent teeth, and cyst formations.
At City Square Dental have preformed thousands of wisdom tooth removal procedures. Our dentists are highly experienced and offer painless sleep wisdom tooth removal dentistry services for patients sensitive to paid.
Each suite is furnished with advanced monitoring to ensure safety. Upon the patients request, wisdom tooth removal surgery is performed under local anesthesia, general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Your dentist will discuss which anesthetic option is right for you. During surgery, your gums will be cut open, and the tooth removed. Sometimes they will be removed in one piece, but other times it will come out in pieces. You will get dissolving stitches that should go away on their own in about a week.
You will need to take it easy for a few days post-operative. You cannot eat foods that are too hard, and you will be in some pain. Your jaw may also swell. However, it will feel better than it would have if your wisdom teeth created a problem. We will give most patients painkillers post-op and encourage icing and OTC painkillers. It is important to get wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible, as the jaws are still soft in young teens and early adults. Call us as soon as you feel any pain at 289 521-2555.
