Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Markham Ontario

At MTS Dental, we would only recommend a tooth extraction when we have exhausted all of our other options. This includes restorative treatments such as bonded fillings, dental crowns, and root canal therapy. This is because it’s in your best interest to preserve your tooth for as long as possible. Even though dental technology has come a long way and modern dental restorations look better and last longer than before, they still aren’t the same as your real natural tooth.

However, there are some instances when a tooth may have to be extracted, such as if it’s suffering from serious decay or damage. We may also have to remove a tooth to create space for dental implants or orthodontic treatment. In addition, if a wisdom tooth is causing problems, such as if it’s impacted, it may need to be removed to keep your mouth healthy.

A wisdom teeth can be found at the back of your upper and lower jaw. Most people will have anywhere from 1-4 wisdom teeth; however, in rare instances, some people may not have any or may have more. A wisdom tooth becomes impacted when it fails to erupt and remains underneath your gumline, which can cause pain, inflammation, swelling, and even infection. Because of their location, wisdom teeth are also harder to clean, increasing your chances of decay. As a result, we may have to remove it to preserve the wellbeing of your nearby teeth and oral tissues.

We would like to point out that not all wisdom teeth have to be removed. If the tooth is not causing any issues and your mouth has enough space to accommodate it, a wisdom tooth can be left in place. But from our experience, this is rarely the case which is why we recommend you have regular dental checkups to check for potential problems. In the event that your tooth has to be extracted, you will be given an anesthetic to numb the area so you won’t feel a thing. Many patients are surprised at how easy and painless the procedure is.
