If you think your wisdom teeth may be growing in, or you have a teenager in your household with wisdom teeth erupting, they need to be evaluated by a skilled dentist. We can assess them and determine whether they need to be extracted.
The Difficulty With Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow in at the back of the mouth. They usually emerge in the late teens to early twenties. There can be problems, however, when there isn’t proper space in the jaw for the wisdom teeth to grow in. If so, they can become impacted, make your other teeth shift or cause an infection.
Furthermore, it can be difficult to brush and floss these teeth, meaning that food can easily be lodged in your back teeth and cause cavities. If your wisdom teeth don’t erupt properly or are compromising your oral health, the best solution may be to have them removed. Our team is well-versed in the extraction of wisdom teeth and will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure. We administer anaesthesia before beginning and only start once you agree that you are ready.
The Signs of Infected Wisdom Teeth
Occasionally, wisdom teeth can become infected and cause problems. If you are worried about an infection, there are several symptoms that may indicate your gums are infected from your wisdom teeth:
- Bad breath
- Difficulty swallowing and opening your mouth
- Inflamed, swollen, painful or red gums
- Pus around the gum
- Sore or swollen lymph nodes under the jaw

It’s a commonly completed procedure at our practice, and you can be confident that we’ll keep your best interest in mind at all times.
We’ll evaluate your wisdom teeth and overall oral health, including X-rays to understand your situation and how best to extract the teeth. From this information, we can carefully plan how to go about your extraction with ease. We’ll advise you on all necessary aftercare so that the extraction site heals quickly and effectively with no complications. You should be ready to return to your normal activities within four days.
