Wisdom Teeth Dentist In Winnipeg

Affordable & Safe Wisdom Teeth Removal in Winnipeg

Do you have a problem with your wisdom teeth? You’re not alone. As many as one in three people will experience some kind of issue with their wisdom teeth, and by the age of 30, half of us will need to see a dentist for treatment to have them removed. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from impacted, crowded, or infected wisdom teeth it is time to take action!

Dentures are used to give you a beautiful smile and restore the function of your mouth. You can chew, speak clearly, eat properly, and take part in all the activities you enjoy without worrying about your teeth.

Get your smile back on track! Renew Dental offers top-quality dentures for patients in Winnipeg.

What Are Wisdom Teeth And How Do I Know If I Need Them Removed?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars to grow in the back of your mouth. Wisdom teeth usually start appearing (erupting) when you are between 17 and 25 years old, but this may vary for every person.

Though they might not seem like much bother now, wisdom teeth can cause a lot of pain and problems if left in place. That is because they usually do not have enough space to erupt normally, therefore growing in at an angle (i.e. impacted), potentially compromising your other teeth.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause many issues such as decay, root resorption, periodontal disease, and/or cysts. Extraction of impacted wisdom teeth is recommended for most patients 25 years of age and younger.

After the age of 25, the benefits of removing impacted wisdom teeth may be outweighed by the disadvantages of the surgery, such as increased healing time, and must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. 

What Are The Problems That Can Arise From Having An Impacted Wisdom Tooth?

There are many problems that can arise from an impacted wisdom tooth. They include:

  • Infections resulting from the inability to keep the area clean from bacteria and food particles
  • Swollen gums in the area of the erupting wisdom tooth
  • Difficulty or pain when chewing or biting
  • Tooth decay on the wisdom tooth or the second molar in front d
  • Resorption of the root of the second molar
  • Gum disease in areas where an impacted wisdom tooth contacts the second molar in front
  • Cyst formation around the impacted wisdom tooth, typically occurs during the ages of 40 to 50 years old

If you have any of these symptoms, or simply don’t feel that your wisdom teeth are erupting properly, it is important to visit a professional dentist for further evaluation.

The Procedure

If required, the removal of all four wisdom teeth is typically done together, in one appointment. Our office performs many types of impacted wisdom tooth extractions but may refer more challenging cases to an Oral Surgeon.

During the removal of impacted wisdom teeth, most patients prefer to receive sedation. Our office offers nitrous oxide sedation to help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. We then anesthetize the area to ensure the procedure is as painless as possible. Our dentists will remove each impacted wisdom tooth, place any sutures as needed, and provide you with post-operative instructions to help during healing. Patients will also receive a prescription for pain medication and an antibiotic to reduce the risk of later infection. 

What To Expect Afterward

Patients can typically expect to require two days off from normal activities following the removal of impacted wisdom teeth to rest and recover. During this time, pain medication and antibiotics are used to help with successful and more comfortable healing. Swelling will typically occur, peaking after 48 to 72 hours, and remain visible for 1 week. If any complications arise, such as dry sockets, patients should return to our office for further evaluation and treatment as needed. Once the initial inflammation and swelling have subsided, patients can return to their normal oral health care routines.
