Wisdom Teeth Extraction | Wisdom Teeth Removal Coquitlam
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow in the mouth, usually during teenage year. The extraction of the wisdom teeth is necessary when they grow sideways, damage the gum or bone, or if other teeth are shifting. Keeping your wisdom teeth if they are partially erupted or disrupt the alignment of your teeth can be a danger to your health. Some of the most serious problems can include infection, abscess and partial destruction to the jaw bone.
Our dentists will examine your teeth during regular check-ups and take x-rays if needed to monitor your wisdom teeth if you haven’t had them removed yet. If they think extraction of your wisdom teeth is required to keep your other teeth healthy, they will discuss the dental surgery procedure with you.
If you or your child is in pain, or think wisdom teeth are starting to erupt, contact Austin Station Dental for an appointment. Your dentist will recommend the best course of action for you.
At Austin Station Dental, we always put your health first. When a tooth is broken, loose, infected or damaged by a large cavity the dentist might not be able to fix with a root canal, filling or crown. The damage might be too extensive or the nerve might be infected.
In this case your practitioner will recommend a tooth extraction. Your dentist will use x-rays and your dental history to prepare the tooth extraction. Intravenous or local anesthesia will be used, depending on the situation. The doctor will discuss the details of the extraction with you during your appointment. He will prescribe any antibiotics or pain medication you might need after the extraction and explain how to take care of any swelling or bleeding that might occur. After the extraction the dentist will work with you to help replace the missing tooth with a bridge or a dental implant.
At Austin Station Dental, we also offer dental implants to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. Learn more
