Wisdom teeth surgery

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties. While some people have enough space for these teeth to grow in normally, others may experience complications as they grow in, such as pain, infection, crowding, or damage to adjacent teeth. In these cases, wisdom teeth removal may be necessary.

For these reasons, many dental professionals recommend having wisdom teeth removed before they cause problems. In some cases, wisdom teeth may be removed as a preventative measure, even if they are not causing any current issues.

At our dental practice, we offer wisdom teeth removal services to help alleviate the discomfort and potential health problems associated with impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth. Our skilled dental surgeon, Dr. Sean Archibald and Dr John Lam have extensive experience performing wisdom teeth extractions and will ensure that the procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible for you.

Before the procedure, Dr. Archibald or Dr Lam will evaluate your teeth and jaw using X-rays and other diagnostic tools to determine the best approach for your specific case. They will then discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have, including the type of anaesthesia that will be used to keep you comfortable during the extraction.

During the wisdom teeth removal procedure, Dr. Archibald and Dr Lam will first administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. For patients who experience anxiety or discomfort during dental procedures, we also offer the option of IV sedation provided by our trusted partner, Dr. Zonair Ikram. Dr. Ikram has been working with our practice for nearly 10 years and is a board-certified anaesthesiologist who specializes in dental sedation.

IV sedation is a safe and effective option for patients who may experience anxiety or discomfort during dental procedures. It involves the administration of medication through an IV line, which helps the patient to relax and feel more comfortable during the procedure. With IV sedation, patients are completely asleep and an have no memory of the procedure afterwards.

Following the wisdom teeth removal procedure, our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that patients have a comfortable and speedy recovery. This may include tips on how to manage swelling and discomfort, as well as guidance on what foods to eat and avoid in the days following the procedure. As necessary we will provide our patients with prescription medication and antibiotics if they require

At our dental practice, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care and comfort during all our procedures, including wisdom teeth removal. If you are experiencing discomfort or pain from your wisdom teeth, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Archibald or Dr Lam to discuss your treatment options.
