Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Necessary?

There are several things that may necessitate wisdom teeth extraction, including overcrowding, damage to the surrounding teeth, infection, inflammation, and even impaction. In most cases, when these things occur, it is best to consult with a wisdom teeth dentist who can provide you with clear information as to why the procedure has been recommended for you, especially if you are concerned about the overall necessity of wisdom teeth removal surgery. Dr. Kumer and the team at Summit Heights Dental are here to help.

What are the Risks?

Though wisdom tooth extraction surgery is very common, and the procedures used are commonplace, there are still risks involved. Before your wisdom teeth removal procedure, take the time to understand these risks.

  • Damage to nerves and/or sinuses. These complications are rare, but they can cause tingling, numbness, and loss of taste.
  • Reactions to anesthesia. The potential complications associated with anesthesia include stroke and heart attack, and in very rare cases, adverse reactions to anesthesia can be fatal.
  • Damage to adjacent teeth or jaw fractures. Depending on the difficulty of removal, the dentist may need to remove portions of bone to access an impacted tooth. This can lead to damage to nearby teeth and, very rarely, jaw fractures.
  • Infection. Very few patients may experience infection in the extraction area caused by the overgrowth of bacteria. Following self-care instructions is the best way to avoid this.
  • Dry socket. This occurs when blood clots in the extraction area become dislodged. These blood clots assist in the healing process and prevent pain. To avoid this, you should follow self-care instructions at home and avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, spitting, rinsing, and other similar activities for 24 hours following your procedure.

When is the Best Time to Get Wisdom Teeth Removed?

For most patients, wisdom teeth removal surgery is most ideal between the ages of 15 and 17 years old. At this age, the teeth have not fully formed and have not yet begun to erupt through the gums, and this makes the procedure far less risky. Adults who seek the care of a wisdom teeth dentist often do so because of pain or inflammation. In this case, the best time for wisdom teeth extraction varies, but it is usually as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.

What to Ask at the Consultation with a Wisdom Teeth Dentist?

Before your wisdom teeth surgery in North York, you will attend a consultation. Oral surgeon wisdom teeth removal can cause anxiety, but asking the following questions will help set your mind at ease.

  • What kind of anesthesia and pain relief will I have?
  • How long will my wisdom teeth procedure take?
  • Will I need future procedures to correct any damage caused by my wisdom teeth?
  • How long will wisdom teeth removal recovery take?
  • Can I bring my own music or comfort object to remain calm during and after the surgery?

What Factors Affect Wisdom Teeth Removal Costs?

Summit Heights Dental recognizes that you may have concerns about the cost of your wisdom tooth extraction. We work hard to keep costs low and affordable, but several factors go into determining the overall cost. These include:

  • The number of teeth extracted. Costs vary based on whether you need upper wisdom teeth removal, bottom wisdom teeth removal, one extraction, or all four teeth extracted.
  • The need for x-rays or other diagnostic procedures. In some cases, we may need x-rays to help determine the best way to extract your wisdom teeth. These come with an additional cost.
  • The complexity of your procedure. Simple extractions require less time and effort than complicated wisdom teeth removal surgeries, so if one or more teeth are partially or completely impacted, costs can rise.

If you have questions or concerns, contact us here at Summit Heights Dental. Dr. Kumon, the leading wisdom teeth dentist in North York, will consult with you and provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions regarding your oral health.
