Enjoy Gentle Yet Effective Wisdom Tooth Extraction Services
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow at the back of your mouth, usually between ages 17 and 25. While most people can live with wisdom teeth without complications, others are not so lucky because wisdom teeth can cause a wide array of health complications if they aren’t removed. Luckily, you don’t have to live through the pain of wisdom teeth. Huron Dental Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, offers effective and pain-free wisdom tooth removal services to save your smile.
Why wisdom tooth removal is necessary
Because your mouth is too small to accommodate an extra tooth, wisdom teeth may lead to an array of problems when they begin to erupt. Some include:
- An increased risk of infection
- Teeth crowding
- Oral pain
Some individuals choose to have their wisdom teeth removed even before experiencing the above signs. Dr. Jameela Jifri and her associates advocate for the early removal of wisdom teeth because the surgery tends to be easier between the age range of mid-teen and early 20s. However, this doesn’t mean adults can’t undergo the treatment.
Wisdom tooth removal procedure
For Mississauga patients, you are lucky because we can handle most wisdom tooth removal cases right here in our practice. You don’t have to entrust your smile to someone who hasn’t earned your trust yet. Here is what to expect from the procedure.
If the wisdom tooth has erupted through the gum, a simple extraction will do the job. However, for an impacted wisdom tooth (one trapped below the gum line), we will recommend surgical extraction. Just like a simple extraction, surgical extraction is performed after administering anesthesia to reduce discomfort.
Next, one of our dentists will make an incision on the gum to access the impacted tooth. Then we break it into pieces to simplify the removal process. Finally, we suture the surgical site and place a gauze pad on the wound to reduce bleeding.
Wisdom tooth removal aftercare tips
While the tooth removal process is painless, you may experience soreness and swelling after the procedure. Luckily, there are aftercare tips you can follow to reduce your recovery time. These include:
- Take rest for the next 3 to 4 days
- Take prescribed pain-relieving medicine when discomfort sets in
- Apply ice on your cheeks to manage the swelling
- Avoid touching the surgical site
- We recommend soft foods and fluids to avoid disturbing the surgical site
- Observe optimal oral hygiene to avoid infections. Brush your teeth daily but be careful around the surgical site. Rinse your mouth about 5 to 6 times a day with warm, salty water.
Request an Appointment
Your bleeding, swelling, and other symptoms should subside after about three days after surgery. However, if you experience fever or pain that doesn’t go away, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your dentist.
