While adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are situations where their removal is the best treatment option. If you are experiencing pain or issues with your wisdom teeth, Dawson Dental Centre is pleased to offer wisdom teeth removal to help you get back to feeling your best. We are dedicated to helping you achieve optimal oral health, and ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible throughout your wisdom teeth removal procedure.
Located in the very back part of the mouth, wisdom teeth are the last and final set of molars to emerge. They typically erupt between the ages of 14-30, although some people never get them at all. For most people, wisdom teeth come in properly and do not cause any issues. For some people, however, issues occur, and intervention is necessary to avoid future complications. If left untreated, problematic wisdom teeth can lead to pain, tooth decay, gum disease and occlusion problems. If there is not enough room in the back of your mouth for wisdom teeth to erupt properly, their growth can be disrupted, causing a variety of issues.
Sometimes wisdom teeth only erupt partially through the gums, which can result in crowding issues with the surrounding teeth, cavities, gum infections and/or severe pain. Wisdom teeth can sometimes grow in unusual directions, causing complications due to crowding and damage to adjacent second molars. Additionally, impacted wisdom teeth can occur when there is not enough room for them to erupt in the mouth and they become stuck in the gums, unable to emerge. Wisdom teeth that are impacted in the jaw can provide a very fertile ground for bacteria to grow at the opening of the mouth, which can lead to gum infection causing considerable discomfort, pain, swelling and illness. Oftentimes your dentist can foresee future concerns, so will recommend the removal of your wisdom teeth before any problems have arisen, helping to avoid expensive surgical procedures later on.
We always recommend being proactive when it comes to your oral health. If you are experiencing any pain, discomfort or swelling in your mouth, or you have any questions at all about your wisdom teeth or the wisdom teeth removal process, call our dedicated Dawson Dental Centre team at (604) 298-3455 and we will be happy to help.
