It’s almost like a rite of passage for teenagers to get wisdom teeth removal. North York patients can come to Dr. Gina Ha & Associates for this procedure. Do wisdom teeth always have to be removed? Not necessarily. Removal of wisdom teeth may be recommended if:
It is important to assess the size, shape, position, depth of the wisdom tooth and the relative proximity of important anatomical structures before the decision is made whether to extract the wisdom teeth.
If it is determined that the wisdom teeth need to be extracted, it is usually easier and less risky to get them out before the roots are completely formed. Timely use of panoramic X-ray will allow proper assessment of developing wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth can be removed under local anesthesia alone or with the use of additional dental sedation to make it more comfortable for you.
If you want to discuss the possible removal of your wisdom teeth, please come in to see your North York dentist Dr. Ha for a consultation.
