Wisdom teeth aren’t always problematic. Sometimes, they come in with no complications, and other times they come in crooked or become impacted. If you’re having trouble with your wisdom teeth, talk to your Drumheller, Alberta dentist to see if they need to be extracted. At Riverside Dental Clinic in Drumheller, Alberta, we offer pain-free wisdom tooth extraction to prevent future problems with your teeth.
Here are some signs that indicate that you may need to have your wisdom teeth removed:
- Pain in your jaw or teeth
- Constant problems with sinus issues
- Inflamed gums or infected area where wisdom teeth are coming in
- Lack of space to accommodate wisdom teeth
- Wisdom teeth coming in crooked
If your wisdom teeth aren’t causing problems, there’s no reason to take action against them. However, it’s not uncommon today to have wisdom teeth removed. Sometimes, it is the best option. If you experience painful symptoms, contact Dr. Kenneth Poznikoff for a checkup to see if they need to be removed. When wisdom teeth don’t have space to come in, they may become impacted, leading to tooth or gum infection. Your teeth may also start to come in crooked due to insufficient room to grow.
Wisdom Tooth Removal Process
After a thorough dental exam, Dr. Poznikoff can determine if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed. If so, we’ll discuss the procedure with you and make arrangements for your oral surgery.
Wisdom tooth removal is an outpatient surgical treatment performed in our clinic. Dr. Poznikoff will make an incision in your gums to remove the impacted tooth. Sometimes the tooth can be removed in its entirety; other times, it comes out in pieces. Wisdom tooth extraction is performed under anesthesia so that you feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure.
At Riverside Dental Clinic, Drumheller, Alberta, we have ample experience with wisdom tooth extraction and ensure you get the services you need for successful treatment. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Kenneth Poznikoff for tooth extraction services, contact us at (833) 575-1855.
