Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to develop and appear in your mouth. They usually erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, a time of life that has been called the “Age of Wisdom.” Wisdom teeth may not need to be extracted if they grow in completely and are functional, painless, cavity-free, disease-free and in a hygienic environment with healthy gum tissue. They do, however, require regular, professional cleaning, annual check-ups and periodic X-rays to monitor for any changes. However, they do require management if they cause infection and or gum disease, tooth decay, cysts, tumours or other pathology and bacteria and plaque build-up. At times, certain extractions may call for a referral to an Oral Surgeon to ensure appropriate management and absolute comfort for the patient. Before any extractions, all viable options will be discussed.
