Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth may require extraction if there is tooth pain or tooth crowding, repeated infection, damage to nearby teeth or extensive decay. At our initial wisdom tooth consultation, a panoramic X-ray will help us investigate any possible issues. Your dentist will discuss the options and risks of wisdom tooth extraction so you can make an informed decision. Depending on your specific needs, we may recommend removing some or all of your wisdom teeth.
Steps to Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth extractions are performed at our Polo Park clinic or Corydon Avenue dental centre. Removing all four teeth takes approximately four hours. We will apply local sedation, a general oral sedation in pill form, or freezing.
