Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Here at Quarry Park Dental, we perform both simple and complex wisdom teeth extractions. In the case of a severely impacted tooth, we may refer the patient to a trusted oral surgeon. The removal of wisdom teeth is best done during the late teens or early twenties to avoid unnecessary risks later on when the tooth roots have matured.

Common Complaints or Problems that Can Occur When Wisdom Teeth Emerge:

Sometimes there is not enough room in the jaw to accommodate these teeth, and they may become completely or partially impacted (unable to break through the bone or gum tissue).

Wisdom teeth can also fracture during their eruption and cause gum tissue to partially grow over them. Food and bacteria tend to get trapped between teeth and tissue, causing inflammation and discomfort.   Wisdom teeth can often come in at an angle, which is ineffective for chewing and problematic when it comes to comfort. This can also cause tooth crowding.

Other serious problems can arise from impacted teeth, such as damage to adjacent teeth and bone, or the development of a cyst or abscess.

Symptoms – When to Consider Having Your Wisdom Tooth Removed

· A headache or localized pain in the area of the budding wisdom tooth
· Jaw swelling
· Swollen or bleeding gums
· Strange taste in the mouth
· Jaw stiffness or swollen lymph nodes in the neck
· Tooth appears to be coming in sideways or tipped

The extraction of wisdom teeth can be completed to alleviate discomfort and prevent future problems from arising.

If you have developed an abscess or infection, The Dental Room will provide you with antibiotics to clear it before the extraction takes place.

About The Procedure

We provide a local anesthetic and the option of oral conscious sedation for those who need it.

Removing a wisdom tooth or teeth is a common, simple procedure, typically lasting one to two hours. A folded gauze pad will be placed over the extraction site and you will be supplied with replacement pads to last you a few days In most cases, we will prescribe a painkiller to help maximize comfort during the first days of recovery.

I have nothing but good things to say about Quarry Park Dental. I’ve been a patient for several years and the staff are all amazing. The service is also superior to any other dental clinics I’ve been to over the years. They use the latest technology and equipment. They are efficient, always on time and super friendly. I have been going through some personal challenges and the compassion they showed me during my last visit was absolutely incredible. I have referred some of my friends to them and they are also very happy. I’d highly recommend this clinic.

I’ve never experienced more helpful and friendly people in any dentist office I have been to. For someone who has high anxiety around going to the dentist or getting the bill, they have helped me to actually not dread going and to come up with good plans without making it overwhelming. I will continue to recommend them to anyone I know.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any more questions about your oral health? We’re here to give you a hand. Don’t hesitate to contact our office or book your appointment below to meet with one of our family dentists in SE Calgary.

It really depends on each patient! Typically we recommend that adult patients visit a dentist once or twice a year, even if your mouth is in good condition. This way, you can get your teeth professionally cleaned regularly and maintain excellent oral health.

Toothaches are the main reason patients come to us. Pain is a sign that your body is telling you something is wrong. There could be decay, gum disease, or other dental problems below the surface. We also help those who have lost or broken a tooth. Don’t worry too much and book your next dental appointment with one of our family dentists today!
If your teeth hurt even a little bit, go to the dentist. Even if the pain goes away, there may still be a problem that needs to be checked. This can prevent the problem from getting worse and causing even more discomfort.

The Canadian Dental Association suggests that parents bring their baby to see a dentist when their first tooth comes in (or by their first birthday). This is important because it lets the dentist find any problems early on, before more teeth come in and the problems get worse. Our dentists are great with families and want to help keep your child healthy.

Yes, we do! If you’re looking for a new, family-friendly dentist in SE Calgary, please don’t hesitate to book your appointment today! We would be more than happy to help guide you on the right treatment solution for your oral health needs.
