Wisdom teeth removal in Waterdown ON
It is very common for people to develop problems with their wisdom teeth. In fact, it is probably more common than not for these problems to occur. At City Smiles Dental, we can provide wisdom teeth removal in Waterdown ON
for wisdom teeth that are causing pain or other dental problems.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt. This means that by the time the wisdom teeth are ready to come in, there is often little room left for this to occur. Given this situation, wisdom teeth are prone to developing many different problems which can cause infection or other serious problems in the mouth. Since wisdom teeth are not needed for chewing, or for clear speech, it is usually recommended that they are extracted whenever problems occur. Wisdom teeth will not need to be replaced once they are extracted. When wisdom tooth removal needs to be performed, we can provide both simple and surgical extractions at our dental practice. When we perform wisdom teeth removal in Waterdown ON, we use local anesthesia to keep our patients comfortable. If teeth other than wisdom teeth are removed, you most likely will want to have this tooth replaced. At our office we can replace the missing tooth with a dental implant. Sometimes a wisdom tooth will become trapped beneath the gums or jawbone. When this occurs, the tooth is said to be impacted, and can be quite painful. Other times, a wisdom tooth may begin to erupt, and then stop partway. This causes a gap to form between the teeth and gums, and infection can develop in this area. This situation also usually results in tooth extraction. Finally, wisdom teeth can end up coming in in the wrong location, and can even push other properly-placed teeth out of position. This situation also needs to be fixed with a wisdom tooth extraction.
