What are Wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third pair of molars in our mouths, located in the back of the mouth.
There are usually four of these “extra teeth” (one on each jaw corner), but not everyone has them. Some people have more than four.
They tend to come out between the ages of 17 and 25, although your dentist can detect them in an X-ray before then.
The need for removal of wisdom teeth is elective and not always mandatory.
When the third molar is not in an ideal position to allow for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Wisdom teeth frequently become “impacted” or obstructed when there isn’t enough room for them, causing damage to the neighbouring tooth.
The impacted wisdom teeth can frequently become infected, resulting in jaw pain and difficulties opening the mouth.
Impacted teeth can sometimes be associated with cysts.

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often require removal due to issues like impaction, overcrowding, and misalignment. Removing them can prevent oral health problems and discomfort.
Your Family dentist or oral surgeon can assess your wisdom teeth through X-rays and a clinical examination. They may recommend removal if your wisdom teeth are causing pain, swelling, or other dental problems.
The procedure itself is performed under anesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the surgery. However, you may experience some discomfort and swelling afterward, which can be managed with pain medication and ice packs.
Recovery time varies for each individual, but typically takes about a week. During this time, you may experience swelling, discomfort, and difficulty eating certain foods.
Like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, such as infection, nerve damage, or dry socket. However, these complications are rare, and your oral surgeon will take steps to minimize them.
The cost of wisdom teeth removal can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the procedure and whether you have dental insurance. It’s best to consult with our office for an accurate estimate
It’s recommended to have someone accompany you to the appointment and drive you home afterward, as you may feel groggy from the anesthesia.
You should avoid strenuous activities for a few days after the surgery and follow our post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery.
Healing time varies, but typically it takes a few weeks for the extraction sites to fully heal. Our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to promote optimal healing.
