Protect Your Smile & Avoid Issues With Wisdom Teeth Removal
While it’s not unheard of that some patients have their wisdom teeth come in without issue, at Forest Hills Dental Centre, we understand that many patients will need to have their third molars removed at some point in their lives due to pain, infection, or the angle at which they grow.
How do I know if my wisdom teeth need to be removed?
If these teeth are coming in without any problems, you may not need to have them removed. However, if they are impacted or causing issues like pain, crowding, or infection, it’s likely that removal may be recommended. In some cases, wisdom teeth may be removed even if they aren’t currently causing problems, to prevent future issues.
What is the removal process like?
The first step is to have a consultation with us to discuss the best course of action. If it’s decided that you need to have yours removed, the next step is to schedule an appointment to have them removed.
What is the recovery like?
Recovery from wisdom teeth removal can take a few days to a week. You will likely have some swelling and pain, and your jaw is likely to feel sore. We’ll prescribe pain medication to help you through the recovery process. It is important to take it easy and not do any strenuous activity for at least a day or two after your surgery.
