When Your Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Extracted

Illustration of wisdom teethIn some cases, wisdom teeth can grow in without any issues. Though that’s the ideal, most people end up needing to have them removed. They may not grow in properly or will negatively affect your other teeth. The signs that you may need to have your wisdom teeth extracted include:

  • Pain
  • Tooth decay
  • Wisdom teeth can’t erupt
  • Swelling
  • Surrounding teeth are blocking your wisdom teeth

What to Expect During Your Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The first step is to have a full evaluation by our experienced team. We’ll take a look at your wisdom teeth and take radiographs to look at their placement and whether they need to be taken out. The large OPG Xray required to see your wisdom teeth is done onsite for you for immediate results. If so, we’ll give you a local anaesthetic (or sedation if you prefer) and wait until you tell us that you’re ready to proceed. Then, we’ll remove your wisdom teeth as efficiently as possible.

Typically, having your wisdom teeth removed takes 30-60 minutes depending on how many need to be extracted and their placement. We’ll let you know precisely what you can expect at your consultation.

Aftercare Instructions

Don’t plan on any strenuous activities after you’ve had your wisdom teeth removed. It’s best to take it easy, eat soft foods and avoid rinsing your mouth or touching the extraction site.

You can apply ice to the outside of your cheek and take over-the-counter medications to deal with any pain or swelling. You should be ready to return to your daily life within four days.
