An impacted wisdom tooth can cause gum inflammation. When inflammation sets in, it can spread quickly to surrounding areas. When a part of the wisdom tooth erupts, it creates a flap of gum tissue that can lodge food particles and become a breeding ground for bacteria. This increases the risk of infection.
When there is not enough room in the mouth to accommodate wisdom teeth, they begin to jostle for space with adjacent teeth. They push against the second molars, causing bone loss, pain and cavities. It is important to have your wisdom tooth removed before it starts affecting perfectly healthy teeth.
When wisdom teeth emerge late in life, they cause crowding and tooth movement, which has been shown to contribute to headaches. If the arrival of your wisdom tooth is marked by sinus pain, pressure and congestion, then it is advisable to have it removed to prevent recurring headaches.
Impacted wisdom teeth may make it difficult to open and close your mouth. You may experience bad breath and an unpleasant taste in your mouth. Your jaw may cramp up and you will find it difficult to chew certain types of food. These symptoms can disturb your personal and professional life.
In rare cases, impacted wisdom teeth can cause cysts or tumors in the jawbone. The benign cysts may require the removal of tissue and bone. To avoid this complication and destructive oral health problems, have our experienced dentist perform painless wisdom tooth extraction at our state-of-the-art North York clinic.
Cleaning around your third molars is difficult. If you cannot manage the additional oral hygiene, it can compromise your overall oral health. A simple wisdom tooth extraction can help maintain your oral health in the present and future.
After an oral examination and evaluation of the X-rays of your mouth, our dentist will pursue the most suitable wisdom tooth removal technique for your individual oral situation.
Extraction is performed under general anesthesia to maximize patient comfort. You will be prescribed highly effective pain medications to reduce discomfort once the anesthesia wears off. There may be a bit of swelling around the extraction area, which should subside within 3-4 days.
Not all wisdom teeth (third molars) need to be removed. Our wisdom teeth removal dentists in North York have evaluated and treated thousands of patients since 1985 and will recommend only the most optimal procedure to our patients. Call us to book a quick and affordable wisdom teeth evaluation today.
If your wisdom teeth cramp up against other teeth, grow at odd angles or don’t emerge from the gum line, they are said to be ‘impacted’. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause cysts inside your jaw bone, or injure or infect the adjacent teeth. We recommend early wisdom tooth evaluation and extraction to prevent these common symptoms of wisdom teeth and to maintain great oral health and hygiene.
A simple wisdom tooth extraction can cost $99-$200 per tooth. If you choose to have all four wisdom teeth removed at once, our dentist may offer you a discount which ranges from $300-$700 . Surgical removal of a single impacted wisdom tooth will cost between $230-$350+. Our North York wisdom tooth dentist will explain the specifics prior to quoting a fee that you will find more affordable than other dental practices.
If pain persists, please visit our wisdom tooth dentist in North York ON for effective wisdom tooth pain medications and wisdom tooth procedures which will remedy the situation the same day.
We minimize this possibility by using panoramic X-rays and choosing the appropriate emergency wisdom tooth extraction technique.
Wisdom teeth can cause jaw pain and swelling. They can make your jaw feel stiff and difficult to open. In rare cases, impacted wisdom teeth may cause cysts or other growths in your jaw. If your jaw is swollen or painful, it is best to seek professional dental advice.
A swollen wisdom tooth needs to be evaluated by a dentist. Your dentist will clean the area, remove food debris and drain any pus. He/she may prescribe antibiotics to reduce pain and swelling. If the problem persists or returns, your dentist will advise removing the wisdom tooth.
Usually you may need a couple of weeks to fully recover from wisdom teeth removal. If you have received stitches to contain the wound and prevent food from getting into the holes, then your doctor will remove the stitches after a week. Pain, swelling or bruising may occur, which will also take some time to heal. Wisdom teeth recovery will be smooth and quick if you plan it in advance of your surgery and follow all after-care instructions which will be provided and explained in detail to you by our dental assistants.
After wisdom tooth extraction:
For the first few days after wisdom teeth removal, your food consumption may be restricted. For quick healing, your dentist may ask you to increase your protein intake. You will also need to stay hydrated to make up for the restricted food intake. Some of the best wisdom teeth food include soups, avocado, smoothies, pureed seedless fruits, fish, bananas and applesauce.
