Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to appear in the mouth, and got their name because they normally come in after adolescence (when we’ve gathered some wisdom from life experience). No matter what they’re called, they can cause a lot of issues. By the time they are ready to emerge, there may be no room left in the jaw, which causes them to move at an angle or become stuck. Not only can this cause pain and soreness, but it can impact other teeth as well.
Wisdom teeth removal is a straightforward procedure, and is performed under sedation. We will discuss your sedation options with you and decide what is best for you. After removal, we’ll send you home to recover with a list of instructions and follow-up. Some soreness and swelling is normal, but most people recover from wisdom teeth extraction within a few days, and have no complications. If something does occur, we are only a phone call away.
Don’t put up with pain and soreness in your jaw, and give your wisdom teeth the chance to damage your mouth. Do the really wise thing and give us a call at Lewisporte Dental Clinic!
