Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Removal
- Pressure from wisdom teeth can weaken neighbouring roots and wear down the enamel, increasing the risk of tooth decay and bone loss. Darch Dental Centre offers wisdom tooth removal surgery that will relieve the pressure on your neighbouring teeth and protect them from damage.
- Wisdom tooth eruption can trigger tooth crowding of nearby teeth. Wisdom tooth removal is a standard dental treatment that can help to prevent crowded teeth from occurring.
- Wisdom teeth can be challenging to clean and cause cavities and other dental problems. The removal of wisdom teeth makes teeth easier to clean and prevents cavities.
- Dental cavities and other types of periodontal disease are more likely to occur when wisdom teeth are impacted. Our professional dentists are experienced in removing impacted wisdom teeth and can help to lower the risk of oral inflammation and disease.

FAQ' About Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are usually only removed if they cause problems or are likely to cause problems in the future. The removal of wisdom teeth isn’t necessary for everyone, but the following are reasons why it may be necessary to have them removed:
- Pain or discomfort
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Damage to the health of neighbouring teeth
- Crowding caused by the pressure from your wisdom teeth
- Gum disease
- Irreversible tooth decay
- Cysts or tumors
- Periodontal or orthodontic treatment preparation
Extraction of wisdom teeth is typically an outpatient procedure lasting approximately an hour. In order to determine the position of each third molar, our dental team will take an X-ray of your jaw. We offer several sedation options for wisdom teeth removal, depending on the patient’s desired comfort level and the complexity of the procedure.
To expose the tooth and bone, we will make an incision in the gum tissue. If any bone is blocking your tooth root, we will remove it. To make it easier to extract the wisdom tooth, we will divide it into smaller sections after the bone has been removed. We will then remove the entire tooth, the root pieces, and any excess bone. Open wounds will be stitched up as necessary to ensure a faster healing process. The extraction site will then be covered with gauze to allow blood clots to form.
Wisdom tooth removal is a relatively painless procedure as we provide various types of sedation options to reduce pain and anxiety. Wisdom tooth surgery may be performed under different types of anaesthesia. Depending on what is necessary for comfort, as well as what the dentist expects with regard to procedural complexity, they may recommend local anaesthesia, sedation anaesthesia, or general anaesthesia.
You will likely feel some discomfort after your wisdom teeth removal procedure. Several hours or days after surgery, some people cannot open their mouth fully due to swelling in their cheeks or mouth. Most people experience slightly uncomfortable dental pain that goes away quickly. We will prescribe pain medication to ease your discomfort following the entire procedure.
Wisdom tooth removal is a safe and standard procedure. There are, however, some risks associated with the surgery that you should be aware of before committing to an extraction:
- Persistent Bleeding: Bleeding is expected during the first few hours after surgery. However, bleeding that persists could mean that no blood clot is forming where your teeth were, that your stitches have come undone, or that the hole left by your wisdom tooth never healed. You should contact your dentist if the bleeding persists.
- Dry Socket: Wisdom tooth removal doesn’t always cause long-term complications, but there is a risk of developing a “dry socket,” which causes intense pain and swelling on one side of your face after surgery. In a dry socket, blood clots fail to form or dissolve before the healing process is complete. If you suspect a dry socket, you should contact your dentist as soon as possible.
- Infection: Swelling and discomfort can be expected after a wisdom tooth extraction. But these symptoms are also typical of wisdom tooth holes that have become infected. This is a red flag if the symptoms persist a few days after your extraction. The most obvious signs of an infection after wisdom teeth surgery are yellow discharge, a bad taste or smell in the mouth, and potentially even a fever.
Wisdom tooth extractions can cost between $180 and $400 per tooth. It can cost up to $2,000 or $3,000 per case if local anaesthesia, sedation, or general anaesthesia is used. Do remember that the cost of the procedure may vary depending on your situation. So, it’s best to have a consultation appointment with our dentist so we can provide you with an accurate cost.
- Eat only soft foods during the first two days after wisdom tooth removal, such as soups, smoothies, mashed potatoes, and scrambled eggs. You need to avoid very hot foods or drinks because they can burn the surgical wound; nuts or seeds as they might get stuck in the wound; and slurping vigorously from a spoon or straw because it can destroy the stitches or dislodge the blood clot.
- Within twenty-four hours after surgery, brushing, spitting, and rinsing the mouth are not recommended to prevent dislodging the blood clot.
- It is safe to go back to normal activities the day after surgery, but avoid excessive movement that can dislodge stitches or blood clots.
- After surgery, you should avoid smoking or vaping for a week to prevent dry sockets.
