Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Sudbury - Your Comfort Comes First

Get your wisdom teeth removed by an experienced dental team!

Most people’s mouths only have enough room for 28 teeth. When your wisdom teeth start to come in, that’s four additional teeth trying to cram their way in. This often creates a range of problems, including crowding, soreness, and a higher risk of infection, making extraction necessary. Since wisdom teeth are the last to erupt, they often encounter obstacles as other teeth have already settled in place.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth can cause several issues, especially when they don't have enough room to emerge properly. Here’s why removal is often recommended:

  • Crowding and Misalignment: As the last teeth to emerge, wisdom teeth can disrupt the alignment of your other teeth, causing crowding.
  • Impacted Teeth: Wisdom teeth can grow sideways or get stuck beneath the gum and bone, known as impaction, leading to severe pain and potential infections.
  • Risk of Infection: Impacted wisdom teeth can cause infections in the surrounding tissues.
  • Cysts or Tumors: Impacted teeth can also lead to the formation of cysts or tumors, which can damage the jawbone and nearby teeth.

The Extraction Process

Our experienced dental team performs wisdom tooth extractions under anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Here’s what to expect:

  1. Anesthesia: General anesthesia is administered to keep you unconscious and comfortable during the surgery.
  2. Extraction: We carefully remove the teeth and roots, ensuring minimal discomfort and maximum safety.
  3. Suturing and Gauze: The gums are sutured to close the wound and prevent infection, and gauze is placed to control bleeding.
  4. Post-Op Supervision: After the surgery, you will rest under our supervision until you’re ready to go home.
  5. Post-Op Kit: You will receive a kit with care instructions, pain medication prescriptions, antibiotics, and a follow-up appointment for suture removal.

Aftercare for Your Comfort and Well-Being

To ensure a smooth recovery, we recommend having someone accompany you after the procedure. Our team provides detailed aftercare instructions and is available to assist you with any concerns during your recovery period.
