Wisdom teeth extraction

Reset Decrease Increase
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth.

When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed.

Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting in the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerged from the gums, and even remained trapped between the gum and the bone.

Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to erupt successfully

These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. When they are partially erupted, the opening around the tooth allow bacteria to grow and will eventually cause an infection. The result: swelling, stiffness, pain and illness.

The pressure from the erupting wisdom tooth may move other teeth and disrupt orthodontic or natural alignment of the teeth.

Removal of the wisdom teeth usually resolves these problems.

Early removal is recommended to avoid future problems and decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure.

The first step of third molar surgery or wisdom tooth extraction is uncovering it and sectioning the tooth for easy removal.

The surgical site will then be sealed with sutures to promote better healing.
