Wisdom Tooth Removal at
A Supa Smile

Man with jaw painThe 3rd set of molars to develop are usually referred to as “wisdom teeth”. While not everyone experiences problems with these teeth, they are often associated with issues such as pain, swelling and infection.

Removing you or your teen’s wisdom teeth is a therapeutic way to prevent damage to other parts of your smile and the common side effects that go along with impacted teeth. Being that Dr Manu Kaur (Dentist) has extra training in areas such as oral surgery, this is a service that we can provide at a neighbouring facility with an anaesthetist on site.

Why do Wisdom Teeth Need to be Removed?

Proactively removing impacted wisdom teeth can prevent problems such as:

  • Pressure against adjacent teeth, leading to crowding or trauma
  • Severe pain and swelling in the jaw
  • Partial eruption, leading to infection and decay
  • Damage to adjacent teeth

The only way to know whether wisdom teeth need to be extracted is by taking an X-ray of the mouth and jaws to evaluate the development and positioning of these 3rd molars. While they may be partially erupted, wisdom teeth may never fully come into place due to lack of space in the jaws. When this situation occurs, it significantly increases the chances of infection and pain.

Having your wisdom teeth pulled can significantly improve the current and future health of your overall smile.

Affording Your Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Seeing a family dentist is often more affordable than going to an oral surgery specialist for your wisdom tooth removal. As an in-network provider, we gladly accept Bupa, NCF and NIP insurance plans. If there’s a gap, our convenient financing options are easy to fit into your monthly budget.
