So what is all the fuss about Wisdom Teeth Extractions? Since Wisdom Teeth are the final set of teeth that grow in the back of your mouth, they help aid in chewing. If they grow in (erupt) properly aligned, then that is the ideal situation. However, in many cases, they can grow in diagonally and horizontally. This is a big problem as there may not be enough room in your jaw or the adjacent teeth and this is why they typically need to be removed. If you require Wisdom Teeth Extraction, Scenic Acres Dental Centre provides NW Calgary Wisdom Teeth Extraction treatment.
Why You May Require Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Our Dental Team will complete a thorough examination of your mouth, including x-rays, to diagnose the type of wisdom teeth removal you require. If your examination reveals your wisdom teeth are aligned properly, and the surrounding gum tissue is healthy, they do not always have to be removed.
Wisdom teeth are generally the last teeth to develop in your mouth, and in many cases, there is not enough room to accommodate these teeth which impedes their ability to grow into the mouth correctly. For some people, the wisdom teeth only partially emerge through the gums, which can result in cavities, crowding issues with the surrounding teeth, or may cause gum infections. When they are first developing, the wisdom teeth may begin to grow in an unusual direction, causing many problems. This uneven development may be responsible for several problems, which includes crowding and damage to the adjacent second molars.
NW Calgary Wisdom Teeth Extractions
When there is not enough space for the wisdom teeth to erupt into your mouth at all, this is known as ‘Impacted Wisdom Teeth.’ When wisdom teeth are impacted in the jaw, the opening around the teeth may become a fertile ground for bacteria to start developing leading to infection in the gum tissues causing discomfort, swelling, pain, and illness. Early removal of impacted wisdom teeth is often recommended to avoid future problems and to avoid costly surgical procedures. Your wisdom teeth removal will take place in our Scenic Acres dental office, and the length of your procedure will depend on your specific needs. During your appointment, we help you feel comfortable throughout your appointment and will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth after your wisdom teeth extractions.
