Wisdom teeth are funny. Some people experience painful wisdom teeth, and some people never get wisdom teeth at all. One thing’s for sure though, it’s no fun if yours start behaving badly! So if you do experience discomfort, come in and see us. We have the expertise right here in our practice to handle most wisdom teeth procedures, including emergency wisdom teeth removal.
Sometimes removing wisdom teeth is easy. At other times the removal can be quite tricky. If we suspect your case will prove to be troublesome, we will refer you to an oral surgeon.
We will always want to take a deeper look at your smile. So we will want an OPG radiograph to be taken before extracting any wisdom teeth at all. An OPG shows us where the nerves are on the lower jaw and the sinus on the upper jaw. This helps us avoid these areas and prevent any further complications.
