Mississauga residents search for wisdom teeth removal options
Wisdom teeth are located in the back of a patient’s mouth. These molars typically begin to erupt during the teenage years or in early adulthood. As the wisdom teeth start to come in, they may cause problems such as pain, tenderness, and swelling of the gums. For some patients, wisdom teeth do not come in properly but even when they do, wisdom teeth are difficult to care for and keep clean, meaning there is an increased risk for periodontal disease or other dental issues.
When wisdom teeth begin to appear or to cause problems, dentists can examine the mouth and take x-rays to determine if removal is necessary. Dr. Kotecha and her associates of Dentistry On 10 offer wisdom teeth removal for residents of Mississauga, Ontario and the surrounding areas. Wisdom teeth removal is considered a surgical procedure. Prior to the procedure, the patient has a consultation with Dr. Kotecha to discuss the procedure, what is to be expected before and after, and the recovery. On the day of your surgery, the doctor will begin with the proper anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and safety. The dentist will open the gums and remove the teeth. The area will then be repaired with stitches.
Wisdom teeth are removed for a number of reasons, mainly to prevent or to correct problems. When wisdom teeth come in, they may cause dental problems due to the mouth being too small causing the teeth to become impacted. Tooth impaction can cause other problems such as infections, cysts, or damage to the other teeth or bone. The wisdom teeth may also come in at an angle or they may only break part of the way through the gums allowing bacteria to become trapped and cause infections.
