We will not claim that wisdom teeth extraction can be fun. But we will claim that we always make it as comfortable as we can. Reason to consider Nosehill Dental for wisdom tooth extraction in Calgary NW?
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that grow in the back one’s mouth, with the evolutionary purpose of breaking down tougher foods. They can be a valuable asset if they grow vertically and are aligned properly.
However, in many cases, these teeth begin to grow diagonally and horizontally, causing a myriad of problems inside the mouth, including crowding and damage to adjacent molars and the jawbone. Additionally, wisdom teeth may not fully erupt through the gum and are thus termed as “impacted”.
That’s no fun – what should we do about it?
A tooth is said to become impacted when there is a lack of space in the dental arch and when its growth becomes affected by the gums, bone or even another tooth.
There are different kinds of impaction;
Impacted wisdom teeth are usually removed due to the problems they are causing or because of the further risk of issues that may arise if they remain in the mouth. In many cases, damage caused by wisdom teeth may not visible on the surface so it’s important to consider them early.
We will usually take full X-rays of the mouth to see what is going on underneath the gum and to determine what type of extraction may be required if any. Many people get anxious at the thought or mention of wisdom teeth removal – that totally makes sense!
Our team works to make the procedure as smooth as possible and the recovery as quick as can be. Your dentist can prepare you by providing specific instructions for both before and after the procedure to aid in easing fear and give you the necessary tools to speed up the getting-well process!
