Wisdom Teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Also called third molars, wisdom teeth usually make their first appearance in young adults between the ages of 15 and 25. Because most mouths are too small for these four additional molars, an extraction procedure is sometimes necessary.

When should wisdom teeth be removed?

The following symptoms may indicate that the wisdom teeth have erupted and surfaced, and should be removed before they become impacted, or, have no room in the mouth to grow. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include pain, infection in the mouth, facial swelling, and swelling of the gum line in the back of the mouth. Many times dentists will recommend an immediate removal of the wisdom teeth, as early removal will help eliminate problems.

What problems are often associated with impacted third molars?

Bacteria and plaque build up, cysts, development of a fluid filled sac, tumour development, infection, and jaw and gum disease.

What is involved in the extraction procedure?

Wisdom tooth extraction surgery involves removing the gum tissue that presides over the tooth, gently detaching the connective tissue between the tooth and the bone, removing the tooth, and suturing the opening in the gumline.

Invisalign is a clear aligner that are orthodontic devices and are transparent, in a plastic form. These are used for the same purpose as “traditional braces” you’ve likely seen before. Invisalign is a great option for anyone looking to straighten their teeth and improve their overall smile. Many people chose Invisalign over braces because it is easier to continue your day-to-day oral health care routine, rather than have a permanent brace covering the majority of your tooth.
