Tooth Extraction in Pickering, Ontario
Although there are many benefits to growing older, sometimes there are downsides like the growth of wisdom teeth and the problems they can create. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, molars at the very back of your mouth, and they usually grow between the ages of 17-25. More often than not, most people’s jaws aren’t big enough to accommodate the wisdom teeth, which in turn leaves them feeling discomfort or pain while chewing. This can create greater problems later on if unattended.
Wisdom teeth removal is something to consider when individuals do not have enough space in their jaw. Since most mouths are too small for extra teeth, tooth extraction becomes a necessary procedure. At Brockington Dental, we perform wisdom tooth extraction under sedation.
When Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Necessary?
Wisdom teeth may not be a problem for everyone. If they are fully erupted and positioned correctly, there may be no discomfort or issues with oral hygiene. However, there are tell-tale signs that wisdom tooth extraction may be required:
A partially erupted wisdom tooth can become infected due to overlapping gum tissue
An impacted or erupted wisdom tooth can put pressure on adjacent teeth, causing them to become crooked or even damaging them
Cysts can form (which can cause damage to the surrounding bones and tissues)
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, contact the team at Brockington Dental. We can perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums to find out whether this procedure is right for you.
