Wisdom tooth extraction procedure as explained by Milton area dentist
The third molars, commonly referred to as the wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to erupt through the gum line during the formation of the mouth. These teeth often make their appearance in one’s late teens or early adult years. Because they come into the mouth so late in the game, they can often become problematic for patients. Dr. Jameela Jifri and her associates in Milton, ON, often educate patients on the benefits of having a wisdom tooth or several wisdom teeth extracted. Tooth extraction is a common procedure that is done on a routine basis to maintain one’s oral health.
What causes a patient to extract their wisdom teeth?
It is not uncommon for patients to hear about others who have had their wisdom teeth removed. There are many reasons why a patient may consider this procedure.
- Because wisdom teeth develop in the very back of the mouth, they can put the mouth at risk of developing decay and disease because they are difficult to reach for brushing and flossing.
- Wisdom teeth that come through the gumline after orthodontic work has been done to straighten the teeth may impact the results and cause unwanted overcrowding.
- Sometimes, there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to emerge, which causes them to become impacted underneath the gum line and push against the adjacent tooth, causing pain and discomfort that can only be resolved with removal.

What is the procedure like?
The procedure for wisdom tooth removal depends heavily on whether or not the tooth is accessible above the gum line. A simple extraction allows the dentist to use special instruments to easily remove the tooth from the socket and bone in less than a minute. A surgical extraction is more invasive and requires the dentist to cut into the gum tissue. Our patients are always properly anesthetized and sedated for their procedures for ultimate comfort.
