preson smiling during dental checkupAt Kinross Drive Dental, we provide a wide range of dental solutions to meet the needs of all ages. The removal of wisdom teeth usually occurs between the late teenage years and the early twenties. It’s a common procedure at our practice, so you can rest assured that you will be kept comfortable and given thorough instructions on proper aftercare when the removal is complete and you can likely return to your normal activities in less than four days.

Our professional team uses advanced equipment and techniques to perform accurate removal with reliable outcomes. Since you’re given local anaesthetic, the procedure is comfortable & has quicker recovery times than those performed in hospital.


What to Expect

At your first appointment, we will complete the necessary diagnostics, such as X-rays, along with a thorough evaluation to understand how your wisdom teeth are placed. The extraction is performed after the tooth socket is widened, and when it’s complete, we use dissolvable stitches so you don’t have to come in to have them removed.

The procedure takes 30-60 minutes, depending on how many wisdom teeth you have removed.

When Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Necessary?

There are different signs that your wisdom teeth are ready to be removed. It may be best to have your wisdom teeth extracted if they are

Frequently Asked Questions

Is wisdom teeth removal a painful procedure?

Wisdom teeth removal is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure a painless experience. While you may feel pressure or pushing during the procedure, you should not feel any pain. After the extraction, some post-operative discomfort and swelling are normal, but this can be managed with prescribed pain medication and following your dentist’s post-operative care instructions.

When is the best time to have wisdom teeth removed?

The ideal time for wisdom teeth removal varies for each individual. In many cases, it is recommended to remove them during the late teens or early twenties before the roots fully develop. Early removal can reduce the risk of complications and make the procedure and recovery easier. Your dentist will assess your specific situation, including the position and condition of your wisdom teeth, and recommend the most appropriate timing for removal.
