Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Okotoks
The extraction of the wisdom teeth is often necessary for patients whose jaw does not have adequate space to accommodate them. At Village Lane Dental Centre, our team provides patients with wisdom tooth extraction in Okotoks, allowing them to regain a comfortable bite and protecting their oral health in the long term.
This procedure is aided by our team’s many years of experience providing extractions, and a commitment to ensuring the comfort of our patients. Contact our practice today to schedule your exam and consultation for wisdom teeth extraction.
Why is Extraction Necessary?
The wisdom teeth are the third molars of the bite, and there is rarely enough room for them to properly erupt and integrate with existing teeth. The growth of these teeth can lead the permanent adult teeth to push forward, creating crowding and making regular oral hygiene less effective. The teeth will sometimes emerge improperly, with the chewing surface facing the side of the second molar.
Partial eruption of these teeth can also lead to the inflammation and irritation of the gum tissue that remains over the chewing surface of the molar. This condition is known as pericoronitis, and can lead to significant discomfort for patients unless it is treated.
Helping You Feel Comfortable through Extraction
We want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible and have a comprehensive understanding of their wisdom tooth extraction. The procedure is planned with the aid of a cone beam CT scanner, which allows us to take 3D images and promote a safe, predictable extraction.
Treatment itself is preceded by the application of a sedative and patients are numbed at the site of extraction. We are able to perform simple extractions as well as complex extractions for wisdom teeth that have been impacted. Teeth extraction by our Okotoks dentists is followed by the use of platelet-rich fibrin, which accelerates bone regeneration after your care has concluded. Patients usually recover after three days, allowing them to regain the full comfort and function of their bite.
