Wisdom teeth removal in Montreal

Wisdom teeth are the third molars located at the back of the mouth and are found on the dental arch. There are usually four of them, but some people have more and others less. Wisdom teeth are not always a problem, since they can coexist harmoniously with the other teeth when the situation permits. However, in some cases, wisdom teeth do not emerge completely. There are various reasons for this, including a lack of space or being misaligned when coming through the gum.

Why should you have your wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth are not always a problem. When it is impacted or semi-impacted, i.e., totally or partially covered by the bone and/or gum, a dentist or a maxillofacial surgeon may need to intervene.

An impacted tooth can cause a variety of problems. These include inflammation of adjacent tissues, abscesses, cysts, decay, displacement and infection of neighboring teeth.

An impacted tooth can also cause pain and someone with an impacted tooth may have difficulty opening their mouth or chewing, which may prevent them from eating properly. It is very important to set an appointment for a dental examination and teeth cleaning with your dentist when this situation occurs in your mouth.

How is a wisdom tooth removed?

During your first appointment, the dentist will perform a clinical examination. Using a probe, the dentist will check if there is a pathway for bacteria to enter the mouth. This procedure is quick and usually painless. If the dentist finds that the tooth is not positioned correctly and that there is a risk of infection of the wisdom tooth or the adjacent tooth, the dentist may recommend that the wisdom tooth be extracted. The general dentist may then extract the tooth or refer the patient to a maxillofacial specialist.

Prior to any intervention, an assessment of the dental and bone structure must be made using panoramic X-ray and/or 3D scans. These X-ray images provide a clear view of the teeth and the important surrounding structures. They allow dental professionals to limit the possibility of complications during surgery.

Maintenance and postoperative follow-up after wisdom tooth removal

Following wisdom tooth removal, the dentist will provide you with the necessary medication to help ease the pain. It will be important to take a few days of rest to help your gums and jawbone heal properly.

You also need to watch your diet. There are some things you will need to know about what to eat after wisdom teeth removal. Our dentist will give you instructions and advice on what to do. Smoking is also discouraged during the healing period to avoid possible complications.
