Wisdom Teeth Removal

An average person has two upper wisdom teeth and two lower wisdom teeth. Typically, around the age of 1-8, wisdom teeth begin to emerge into the mouth. Some people might not grow all of their wisdom teeth, leaving one or more undeveloped.

Due to a shortage of space at the rear of the jaws, many people’s wisdom teeth cannot fully develop and function. When there isn’t enough space for them to erupt, they become wedged or “impacted. Even if some totally buried wisdom teeth are still there and do not appear to be causing any issues, the majority will ultimately experience symptoms.

So, if you need orthodontic treatment or experience problems from the eruption or impaction of your wisdom teeth, our dentist may propose wisdom teeth removal.

What is the method for removing wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth removal can be performed under general anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or local anesthesia.

Our dentists routinely perform local anesthetic treatments. You will still feel the pressure and pressing, even if a topical anesthetic will conceal any discomfort
