Wisdom Tooth Extraction In Edmonton

After losing your baby teeth, your adult teeth will last you for the rest of your lifetime. Sometimes, tooth extraction may need to occur after trauma because of decay or risk of infection or because too many teeth crowding your mouth. Wisdom teeth extraction, conversely, is common due to limited jaw space, which can cause impaction, infection, or pain, warranting removal for prevention.

When Is A Wisdom Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Wisdom teeth are third molars in the back of your mouth, generally emerging between the ages of 17 and 25. There might not be a need to remove them if:

  • You can clean them properly.
  • They’re healthy
  • They fully emerge
  • They’re positioned correctly without impacting other teeth.

Often, wisdom teeth lack sufficient space to emerge properly, leading to several issues. Removal becomes necessary if they stay hidden in gums, only partially emerge, or cause crowding, inviting infections and oral diseases.



How Tooth Extraction Works In Edmonton At Janz Family Dental

Dental and oral surgeons are the ones that will perform a tooth extraction on you. You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth that is being removed. If the tooth extraction is more complicated or if you’re removing all four wisdom teeth, you may need a general anesthetic to prevent pain in your whole body, which will put you to sleep through the procedure.

To remove a tooth, here are the steps that occur when the tooth is under the gums:

  • The dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and remove any bone that is covering the tooth if necessary.
  • They will then separate the tissue that connects the tooth to the bone.
  • The tooth will then be removed.
  • Sometimes the dentist needs to cut the tooth into smaller pieces to get it removed.
