Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Medicine Hat, Alberta

Wisdom tooth extractions are a common restorative dental procedure performed by the skilled team at Red Rock Dental. Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that often emerge during your late teens or early twenties. Sometimes, these teeth can grow in perfectly, but more often than not, they cause problems such as impaction, pain, infection, and crowding of other teeth. When this happens, Dr. Dallin Kay and Dr. Matt Gibb recommend a wisdom tooth extraction to alleviate discomfort and prevent further dental issues. With their expert care and use of oral conscious and nitrous sedation, the procedure is made as comfortable and painless as possible.

When Is A Wisdom Tooth Extraction Necessary?

A wisdom tooth extraction becomes necessary for various reasons. If the wisdom teeth are causing pain, discomfort, or swelling due to impaction or improper growth angle, removal may be recommended. Insufficient space in the jaw can lead to crowding or damage to neighboring teeth, making extraction necessary to prevent complications. Persistent pain during chewing or signs of infection or gum disease around wisdom teeth may also prompt the need for removal.

The Benefits Of Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Pain Relief

One of the primary benefits of wisdom tooth extractions is pain relief. Impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth can cause severe discomfort, making it difficult to eat, talk, or even sleep. By removing these problematic teeth, you can enjoy immediate relief and return to your normal routine without any pain or discomfort.

Prevents Damage To Other Teeth

Another significant benefit of wisdom tooth extraction is the prevention of damage to other teeth. When wisdom teeth are crowded, they can push against other teeth, causing them to shift and leading to bite problems. Removing these teeth can help maintain the alignment of your other teeth and prevent future dental issues.

Reduces Risk Of Oral Disease

Lastly, wisdom tooth extractions can reduce the risk of oral disease. Impacted wisdom teeth are difficult to clean and can become breeding grounds for bacteria, leading to gum disease and tooth decay. By removing these teeth, you can maintain better oral hygiene and reduce the risk of these conditions.
