Safe, pain-free wisdom teeth removal…
Wisdom tooth removal (or extraction) is a very common procedure performed to get rid of the pain or potential problems that wisdom teeth can cause.
Often, wisdom teeth can cause problems as they try to push through your gums. Also known as your third molars, wisdom teeth usually push through in your late teens or early 20’s, which is when we recommend they are removed.
Back in caveman days, wisdom teeth were useful! After our original back teeth were ground down through chewing a coarse diet, our wisdom teeth would be there to take over.
For many people today, wisdom teeth cause nothing but problems. The size, shape and number of wisdom teeth can vary, but a common feature is the issues they cause, such as:
- gum disease
- teeth crowding
- pain and swelling
Our team at Mills Road Dental Centre have the experience and expertise to remove your wisdom teeth safely without pain or discomfort. Depending on your needs, we have a range of pain relief and sedation options to choose.
