Tooth Extraction & Wisdom Teeth Removal in Mississauga
Dr. Šarić and associates provides tooth extractions in the comfort and convenience of her beautiful Mississauga dental clinic. While we make every attempt to retain all viable teeth, sometimes the removal of a tooth is the best option. Whether tooth removal is necessary as a result of trauma or part of your treatment plan, we will ensure your complete comfort before, during and after your care.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth or third molars are the last permanent teeth to erupt in the mouth – around the age of 18. These teeth will erupt behind the second molars. In some patients, the jawbone may not be long enough to allow for complete eruption of third molars and this can result in many different conditions necessitating the removal of one or more of these teeth. A panoramic radiograph (panorex, shown above) will be required to assess the positioning of the lower wisdom teeth. We do not take this type of x-ray in our clinic but we will gladly refer you to an oral radiology clinic to have this done.
When wisdom teeth are unable to erupt, the tissue around the tooth may become infected, inflamed and painful. It may be difficult to open your mouth or chew food. We can help. We will diagnose the reason for your discomfort and recommend a suitable treatment plan. If it is best to remove your third molars, we can provide all the care you need and ensure you are comfortable before, during and after the procedure.
