Wisdom Tooth Removal AT MONASHEE DENTAL CENTRE
Should You Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen.
Early removal is recommended to avoid problems such as damage to nearby teeth, cysts or tumors, disease, infection or tooth crowding.
When we meet with you, we will evaluate the position of your wisdom teeth and predict if they are present or if they may cause future problems. We usually evaluate this when you are in your mid-teenage years.
If you need your wisdom teeth removed, we will discuss this with you and go over the procedure with you in detail. Rest-assured that wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure and surgery is generally performed in our office under appropriate anesthesia to maximize your comfort.
