Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Armstrong Creek

Armstrong Smiles teamAlso called “third molars,” wisdom teeth are the last teeth to fully develop. They typically do not come into place until a person is in their mid-teens to early 20s. They can continue developing until an adult is almost 30 years old.

Sometimes the size and location of wisdom teeth may cause them to become impacted, crowded, or press against the tooth next to them. They often cause pain and discomfort, or become lodged under the gums.

When wisdom teeth cannot be cleaned, they are at a high risk of tooth decay or gum disease. Consequently, they also place the next tooth at risk. Removing problematic wisdom teeth can eliminate the source of painful infections, as well as preserve otherwise healthy teeth.
New Patients

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Available

woman getting sedation medicineAlso referred to as “happy gas,” nitrous oxide is an optional add-on during your wisdom tooth removal procedure. Nitrous is considered a type of inhalation sedation because there are no injections or pills to take.

During inhalation, it causes a pleasant effect of mild analgesia, helping your entire body relax as it puts your mind at ease. Nitrous oxide will help you feel calmer overall, so that the wisdom tooth removal process is as straightforward as possible.

Most of our patients who request nitrous sedation are not asleep, but still not fully aware of what’s going on around them. The procedure can usually be completed in about an hour because of how relaxed it helps you feel.

Will I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Our dentist will need to use an X-ray to determine if your wisdom teeth should be removed. Not all of them cause physical symptoms, so an exam is always necessary.
