Wisdom Teeth Removal & Extractions Blainville

Wisdom teeth also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop in the back of the mouth. They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25, and most adults have four wisdom teeth, although some people may have fewer or none at all. The process of wisdom tooth eruption can take several years, and it can cause a range of symptoms and complications.
Wisdom tooth eruption can cause a range of symptoms, including pain, swelling, redness, and stiffness in the gums or jaw. Some people may also experience headaches, earaches, or difficulty opening their mouth.
Wisdom teeth can become impacted, meaning they are trapped under the gums, if they do not have enough room to emerge or grow properly. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth, and they may need to be removed. If you are experiencing pain due to your wisdom teeth, contact Lüminus Dental Clinic in Blainville to set up an appointment to have your wisdom teeth extracted.

What is Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Wisdom teeth may need to be removed if they are causing problems or if they are at risk of causing problems in the future. Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal process of a problematic wisdom tooth. Wisdom teeth extraction is a common and routine dental procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia or sedation. Some people may only need one wisdom tooth removed, while others need all four removed.

When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to develop in the mouth. The timing of wisdom tooth eruption can vary from person to person. Some people may have all four wisdom teeth erupt, while others may only have one or two. Treatment for wisdom tooth eruption depends on the individual case. If they are not causing problems, they may simply need to be monitored through regular dental check-ups. If the wisdom teeth are causing problems, they may need to be removed. For some people, wisdom tooth extraction may be necessary in order to maintain oral health.  Below are a few examples of when to consider having your wisdom teeth extracted:

Emergency Wisdom Tooth Removal

An infected wisdom tooth may lead to swelling and abscess and may require emergency wisdom tooth removal. Similarly, if a wisdom tooth is causes pain such that eating, sleeping, and normal function are affected, then contacting the dentist for an emergency extraction may be required.

The dentist will require that a panoramic X-ray first be taking to assess the position and state of the wisdom teeth and rule out any other pathology. The dentist will then determine if the wisdom tooth causing the pain requires antibiotic therapy prior to extraction.
