Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Guelph
Wisdom teeth are the last of your adult molars and usually begin to grow in the late teens. In many cases there isn’t enough room in the jaw for these large molars and they need to be removed before they erupt through the gums.
Should your wisdom teeth be removed?
We assess your teen’s wisdom teeth during regular dental examinations, and if we determine that they will present a problem to the other teeth we will recommend their removal. The wisdom teeth are removed in a surgical procedure because they are usually below the gums. The surgery is performed under a local anesthetic and we usually provide sedation to help patients relax during the procedure.
