There can be various reasons why a tooth may need to be removed. Whether the reason is that it is fractured (and can't be repaired), infected, or crowded by other teeth, our Mississauga dental team has the expertise and experience to get that tooth removed with minimal discomfort.
Extractions and wisdom teeth removal surgery is a procedure that will be performed by one of our Mississauga dentists. Usually, a dentist will recommend this procedure when serious dental issues are expected for your regular teeth, as a result of your wisdom teeth.
The wisdom teeth removal process aims to remove the wisdom teeth at the back of the mouth, preventing the surrounding teeth and bones from being damaged.
This process is simple and typically not painful. Your Mississauga dentist will first inspect your mouth and take an X-ray to locate the wisdom teeth. A local anesthetic is used to avoid the feeling of any pain throughout the procedure. The dentist will then remove the teeth, either as a whole tooth or in pieces. Once the removal has been completed, the dentist takes care of the extraction site to control bleeding by adding stitches to close up the area. Your Mississauga dentist will then choose the specific pain relievers and/or anti-biotics depending on the post-procedure requirements of each individual.

It can take from 1-2 weeks for your oral health to fully recover from a wisdom teeth extraction. During this healing process, there are some important care tips to keep in mind:
The wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to grow that often break out between the ages of 17 and 25. Some people may not have any issues with the growing–in of wisdom teeth. However, you may be the right candidate if your dentist assesses that your wisdom teeth need to be removed to prevent serious oral health problems.
