At Kinross Drive Dental we provide a broad range of dental solutions to meet the needs of all ages. The removal of wisdom teeth usually happens in the late teenage years to the early twenties. It’s a common procedure at our practice, so you can rest assured that you will be kept comfortable and be given thorough instructions on proper aftercare when the removal is complete.
Our professional team uses advanced equipment and techniques to perform an accurate removal with reliable outcomes. Since you’re given local anaesthetic, the in-chair procedure is comfortable and has quicker recovery times than those that are performed in hospital with general anaesthetic. You can likely return to your normal activities in less than four days.
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:
At your first appointment, we will have the necessary diagnostics done such as X-rays along with a thorough evaluation to understand how your wisdom teeth are placed. The extraction is performed once the tooth socket is widened. After it has been removed, dissolvable stitches are applied so that you don’t have to have them removed.
The procedure takes 30-60 minutes depending on how many wisdom teeth you are having removed.
