Wisdom teeth extractions

Dentists make every effort to preserve your teeth and encourage regular check-ups to diagnose conditions requiring treatment. When teeth are unable to be saved due to untreated decay, cracks, gum inflammation or other reasons, the problematic tooth may require removal. The most common tooth requiring extraction are third molars (also known as wisdom teeth).

In some cases, there isn’t enough room at the rear of the jaw for wisdom teeth to come through, resulting in the tooth becoming wedged-in or impacted. In these situations, it can cause problems such as infection, crowding, pain, cystic changes, ulcer, food traps and resorption cavity of adjacent teeth. These are all symptoms you want to avoid before the problem becomes serious.


Regular check-ups with our dentists will help you prevent this and deal with the issue before it becomes a major concern. When frequent problems do occur we recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed Some common replacement options for extracted teeth include implants, dentures and bridges, which will be discussed with you during your consultation.

Impacted wisdom teeth

For many people, wisdom teeth are unable to move from under the gums and into the mouth as the rest of the teeth do. Most people do not have enough space in their jaws for wisdom teeth to easily push through the gums. If there is not enough space, the wisdom tooth will become impacted. This means they are either stuck under the gum or may have been able to only partially break through the gum and a small portion of the tooth can be seen in the mouth. A wisdom tooth may be sitting at an angle that is causing it to bump into the tooth in front which stops it from moving into the mouth.


If impacted wisdom teeth are causing problems, your dentist may recommend removing them.
