Edmonton Tooth Extractions
At Donsdale Dental, we offer extractions of teeth which may be badly damaged or broken down, or that must be removed in order to undertake other dental procedures such as orthodontic treatment. Additionally, we also are able to extract Wisdom Teeth right here in our West Edmonton dental office.
Why Your Wisdom Teeth are Extracted
Wisdom teeth are generally the last teeth to develop in your mouth. In many cases, there is not enough room to accommodate these teeth, which can impede their ability to grow into the mouth correctly.
For some people, the wisdom teeth only partially emerge through the gums, which can result in cavities, crowding issues with the surrounding teeth, or may cause gum infections. When they are first developing, the wisdom teeth may begin to grow in an unusual direction, causing many problems. This uneven development may be responsible for several problems, which includes crowding and damage to the adjacent second molars.
When there is not enough space for the wisdom teeth to erupt into your mouth at all, this is known as ‘Impacted Wisdom Teeth.’ When wisdom teeth are impacted in the jaw, the opening around the teeth may become a fertile ground for bacteria to start developing leading to infection in the gum tissues causing discomfort, swelling, pain, and illness. Early removal of impacted wisdom teeth is often recommended to avoid future problems and to avoid costly surgical procedures.
Offering Edmonton Tooth Extractions
Your wisdom teeth removal will take place in our West Edmonton Clinic, and the length of your procedure will depend on your specific needs. During your appointment, we help you feel comfortable throughout your appointment and will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth after your wisdom teeth extractions.
Through the use of digital x-rays and a thorough oral exam, we will be able to perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to determine if an extraction is required.
