Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Commonly known as “wisdom teeth”, the third and final set of molars are typically the last teeth to erupt. They are located in the upper and lower back corners of the adult mouth. Wisdom teeth can cause problems for some patients because they often erupt too closely to existing permanent teeth, crowding them and causing problems with the effectiveness of the patient’s bite.
If your wisdom teeth are causing discomfort or pain, they might be impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a very painful toothache, and if left untreated can even affect your overall health.
Symptoms of an Impacted Wisdom Tooth
Some of the symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include:
- Facial swelling
- Inflammation and swelling of gums
- Severe pain
Many patients choose to have their wisdom teeth extracted before problems develop. For most patients the lack of wisdom teeth has no effect on their ability to speak, eat or bite down comfortably. For more information about wisdom teeth and tooth extractions for patients in Surrey, Langley and surrounding areas, please contact our office.
The extraction may be done under local anesthetic but for more complicated extractions you may be referred to an oral surgeon. Recovery is typically quite fast, usually taking two or three days.
Do all wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Some people’s wisdom teeth do not pose any potential oral health risks and will not need to be removed.
What is the best age to have wisdom teeth removed?
There is no ideal age but generally the sooner the better.
Will my wisdom tooth extraction be covered by my insurance?
Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
