Wisdom Tooth Extractions Near You
The idea of removing a tooth sounds terrifying to many people. However, in many cases, it can be necessary. Wisdom teeth are the molars at the back of your mouth. Some people are lucky and have no issues with their wisdom teeth. Others are not as lucky and have no space for them to grow. When wisdom teeth do not grow properly, they can cause pain and potential oral health issues in the future. Are you looking for wisdom tooth extractions in Winnipeg? We provide wisdom tooth extraction near you.
When is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Necessary?
When possible, most people would avoid removing any of their teeth. However, when your teeth grow at an angle, they can trap bacteria causing infections. The following are situations where your dentist will recommend an extraction:
- If there is a cavity in your wisdom tooth
- If your wisdom tooth is growing in at an angle
- If your wisdom tooth is impacted under your gums or jawbone
- If there is not enough room for your wisdom teeth
The Process of Wisdom Tooth Extractions
If you’re looking to receive a wisdom tooth extraction in Winnipeg, your dentist will first take X-rays. You will then be given sedation to ensure the procedure is painless. If you have anxiety, you can ask us about the sedation options we offer during your treatment process. After the sedation has been administered and your mouth is completely numb, an incision will be made to remove your tooth. Once your tooth is removed, we will clean and stitch the area. When the procedure is finished, we will provide tips and instructions to care for your wound to ensure a quick recovery.
It is essential not to let the area get infected. We recommend rinsing your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash or saltwater in the first couple of days. You will avoid brushing the extraction area to prevent the blood clots from dislodging. In the first couple of days, try to eat soft foods, such as yogurt and soup. If you feel any discomfort or pain, it should not last longer than a couple of days. If the pain persists, please contact us.
