In other cases, there simply is not enough space in a patient’s smile and this can cause pain and crowding. Impacted wisdom teeth become trapped beneath the gum and bone tissue and as a result may take many positions to try to find a pathway to erupt.
Your dentist will determine whether wisdom tooth removal is right for you.
During your wisdom tooth removal consultation with your dentist here at Foothills Dentistry, Dr. Shruti Chahal will conduct an oral examination and take x-rays of your mouth. We can then properly evaluate the position of your wisdom teeth and whether wisdom tooth extraction is necessary to preserve your oral health and prevent future problems.
Wisdom tooth removal is an oral surgery procedure performed under local anesthesia. However, we offer sedation dentistry for apprehensive patients to provide a stress-free, comfortable experience.
We provide all patients with a wisdom tooth removal aftercare kit to ensure your fast recovery.
If during your consultation, your dentist determines that wisdom tooth extraction may be required, Dr. Shruti Chahal will answer any questions or concerns you may have before scheduling your appointment. You will be instructed on wisdom tooth aftercare following your oral surgery both verbally and in writing to best ensure your swift recovery.
Wisdom teeth removal recovery time is generally a few days.
