Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Kitchener, ON

The Kitchener Dental family understands that wisdom teeth can cause discomfort among patients. Oftentimes, one or more of these molars will not properly align and extraction becomes necessary. Our dentists are here to help extract wisdom teeth to alleviate the pain and dental damage that can arise from impacted teeth.

What are Wisdom Teeth?

The third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of teeth to develop in the human mouth. While they begin developing around the age of 10, wisdom teeth often do not emerge until between the ages of 17-23.

Extracting your wisdom teeth early can preserve dental alignmenr

How Are Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Removing wisdom teeth is a straightforward procedure. An oral surgeon creates an incision in the gum above the impacted tooth and will remove any bone covering the tooth. If the molar is too large to remove in one piece, it may be broken into smaller pieces for easier removal. Once all pieces are extracted, the tissue is stitched back together, and the patient is sent on their way. 

Recovery typically takes several days. While patients may notice bleeding, swelling, and discomfort in the surgical area during the first 24 hours following the procedure, these symptoms often dissipate quickly and patients are then free to return to their normal routines.
