Wisdom Teeth Removal in Charlottetown

The wisdom teeth are the final set of adult teeth to emerge. They usually begin to grow during the late teens. Normally, these large molars would emerge behind the second set of permanent molars, however for many people there are complications. Sometimes there’s not enough room for the wisdom teeth to emerge properly, or the teeth themselves may be misaligned. When this happens they need to be removed to prevent damage to the other teeth.

Because the wisdom teeth are extracted before they emerge through the gums, they need to be removed through surgery. The procedure involves making small incisions in the gums and removing the teeth. After each tooth is removed we close the incision with sutures.

You may feel pain and discomfort after your surgery, and there may be swelling around the surgical area. We’ll provide post-surgical instructions to help you minimize your discomfort while you heal.
