Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common surgical procedures in Canada but one that many general dentists do not feel comfortable doing. The dentists at TLC Dental Care have many years of oral surgery experience, an area in which they enjoy and excel. They welcome referrals from other general dentists for this particular dental procedure.

Why would you need your Wisdom teeth extracted?

Permanent molar teeth normally erupt from the age of six onwards, with the third molars (wisdom teeth) being the last to erupt, usually between the ages of eighteen and twenty four years. Wisdom teeth may erupt normally into correct dental alignment and function or conversely develop in non- or minimally functional positions.

Impaction occurs when there is prevention of complete eruption due to lack of space, obstruction or development in an abnormal position. This may result in a tooth erupting partially or not at all. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to an increased risk of caries and periodontal disease in adjacent teeth, and orthodontic problems in later life.
