Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to erupt right at the back of the mouth. There is not always enough room for these teeth to fully erupt and they can become impacted and the cause of pain, decay, or gum inflammation which over time can be a risk factor for other systemic health conditions.
Initially any symptoms or infection may need to be managed and a digital jaw x-ray (OPG) used to assess and plan removal. The teeth may be removed on-site with or without sedation or you may be referred to a local oral surgeon.
Prevention Is Best
Even with excellent home oral hygiene, you can’t clean your teeth as well as a professional hygienist. By seeing a hygienist regularly, you’ll keep your teeth and gums healthy and help prevent tooth decay.
Love Your Smile
If your teeth are a little worse for wear – broken or weak from acid, too many fillings, or from grinding – it can impact your smile, the way you talk or eat and certainly your confidence.
You only have one set of teeth – keeping them working well and looking good takes careful, ongoing work. Of course, the best cure is prevention.
