There comes a time when your dentist may recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed. Oakridge Crossing Dental is pleased to offer the convenience of SW Calgary Wisdom Teeth Extractions, here in our SW Calgary dental office!
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 many issues which include crowding and damage to the adjacent second molars.
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.
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 analysis reveals your wisdom teeth are correctly aligned, and the surrounding gum tissue is healthy, they do not always have to be removed.
Your wisdom teeth removal will take place in our Oakridge Crossing 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.
