Your NW Calgary Choice for Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Sarcee Dental offers tooth extractions. The final set of adult teeth to develop, your wisdom teeth may cause problems. If this is the case, let Sarcee Dental Clinic help! If you have soreness or swelling throughout the jaw, crowding of the teeth due to pressure, decay or infection along with the teeth next to your wisdom teeth, or cysts or disease seen on your dental x-rays, you may need your wisdom teeth removed. Call Sarcee Dental to see whether tooth extractions might be the best solution for you.

What are Wisdom Teeth and Why do they need to be removed?

Located in the very back of your mouth, your wisdom teeth are the final set of adult teeth to develop. They usually develop during your late teens or early twenties but can develop anywhere from the ages of 14-30. Some people never get a full set of wisdom teeth. For many people, there is sufficient room in their jaw, and their wisdom teeth grow in properly and present no problems at all. For many others, however, wisdom teeth can become problematic, and dental intervention is required before they become riskier and more dangerous for the patient. The only way to know for sure whether your wisdom teeth need to be extracted is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. Here at Sarcee Dental Clinic, we will thoroughly assess your bite and take a series of diagnostic x-rays to see what’s going on under your gum or bone tissue.

Why do Wisdom Teeth Need to be Extracted?

  • Inadequate Space– if there is inadequate space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to erupt properly and become fully functional, this can cause pain, cavities, and gum infections.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth– if there is inadequate space for the wisdom teeth to erupt properly, they may develop diagonally or horizontally, eventually becoming completely stuck.
  • Consequences of untreated impacted wisdom teeth:
    • Damage to nearby teeth
    • Disease
    • Infection
    • Tooth crowding
  • Partial Eruption – if wisdom teeth only partially erupt in the mouth, this may pose a potential risk of infection between the overhanging gum tissue and the tooth itself

Your Wisdom teeth may become problematic when:

  • They are causing pain
  • They become impacted, meaning that the teeth become trapped in your jawbone or gum
  • They become misaligned
  • There is not enough space in your jaw for them to erupt
  • They crowd existing teeth
  • They are causing damage to adjacent teeth
  • They develop cavities and decay due to difficulty keeping them clean
  • To prevent future issues depending on how your dentist believes they will grow in and affect future teeth

If you are experiencing any pain, swelling, or discomfort, Sarcee Dental Clinic is here for you! We will assess the position and health of your wisdom teeth and determine with you whether removal is your best option and what that will involve.
