Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Removal of wisdom teeth is a common procedure in most dental offices. They erupt between the ages of 16 and 20, there is not enough room left for the wisdom teeth to erupt. Hence they may erupt at an angle or they may not fully emerge. Wisdom teeth that have not fully broken through the surface of the gum can cause dental problems later. Food can get trapped around the edges of the teeth that if left to accumulate can lead to tooth decay, pericoronitis or abscess. The procedure of wisdom teeth removal in Erin Mills is done by an oral surgeon or dentist in his office. The extraction can be delayed if you have an infection to give the infection time to clear up.
Just like any other surgery there are some risks associated.
- Infection and delayed healing is the most common risk. This is mostly caused by smoking before complete healing.
- Dry socket - which refers to a dull but aching sensation in the jaw or gum. You might have a bad smell or taste coming from the removed tooth socket. This happens if the patient does not follow after care instructions given by their surgeon.
- Nerve damage – There is a very rare chance that this might happen. It can cause pain of tingling sensations as well as numbness of the lower lip, tongue, chin and gums. It can be temporary or permanent in rare cases.
