Understanding the Impact of Wisdom Teeth on Your Oral Health

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, often emerge during late adolescence or early adulthood and can lead to various dental issues if not monitored closely. Common problems associated with wisdom teeth include:

Impaction and Pain: When wisdom teeth are unable to emerge normally, they become impacted, causing significant wisdom tooth pains and discomfort.

Overcrowding and Misalignment: Emerging wisdom teeth can push against other teeth, leading to overcrowding and misalignment, complicating previous orthodontic treatments.

Infection and Gum Disease: Partially erupted wisdom teeth create openings for bacteria, leading to infection, gum disease, and wisdom teeth hurting.

Why Consider Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Ottawa?

Removing problematic wisdom teeth can significantly enhance your oral health and well-being. Benefits of wisdom teeth removal include:

Relief from Pain and Discomfort: Eliminate the source of wisdom tooth pains and discomfort.

Prevention of Dental Complications: Avoid overcrowding, misalignment, and the risk of infections, ensuring the health of adjacent teeth and gums.

Improved Oral Hygiene: Simplify oral hygiene practices by removing hard-to-reach wisdom teeth, reducing the risk of decay and gum disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wisdom teeth don’t necessarily have to be removed if they grow in correctly positioned and function properly. However, if your wisdom teeth are impacted and cause crowding in your teeth, it’s important to have them extracted to avoid damaging the surrounding teeth. If your wisdom teeth become impacted, it can lead to infection, gum disease, crowding, and damage to your other teeth.

If your dentist or oral surgeon recognizes that you don’t have enough room in your mouth for your third molars to erupt, it’s in your best interest to have them removed as soon as it’s recognized. You can have your wisdom teeth removed as early as age 11 or 12 and for others it might not be until their later teen years. The younger you are the faster the healing process will be and you will also have less likelihood of complications.
Most patients will want to maintain a low profile for at least a couple of days following wisdom teeth extraction. You’ll likely experience pain, swelling, jaw stiffness and general tiredness for the first 48 hours.
Due to the varying degrees of impacted wisdom teeth and the different sedation options available, it’s difficult to give an accurate and realistic quote for most wisdom tooth removal procedures. After reviewing your dental x-rays, our dental team can provide you with a quote. It’s important to keep in mind that many insurance policies vary based on their coverage for any given surgical procedures. Our team can help review your insurance policy to find out how much of your wisdom tooth removal treatment is covered. Speak with our team today!
Most patients will recover in roughly 7-10 days after the extraction process. However, the healing process may vary significantly from one patient to the next based on the complexity of the procedure, their attention to recovery guidelines, and their body’s ability to heal.
It’s fairly common that you will experience some level of swelling and bruising after getting your wisdom teeth removed. The swelling will subside after a few days and using an ice pack can reduce swelling and help manage the pain.
