The average mouth is made to hold up to 28 teeth. It can be difficult and painful when wisdom teeth, also called third molars, try to fit in your mouth. They are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and the gum tissue is healthy, they do not have to be extracted. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. It’s always important to remove them as they may grow sideways or partially emerge from the gum, causing swelling, pain and illness. At Appleway Dental Clinics, our dentists can help with wisdom teeth extraction in Red Deer.
Most patients have their wisdom teeth extracted under sedation to help reduce anxiety and make them feel comfortable. If you need to have your wisdom teeth removed in Red Deer and surrounding areas, contact Appleway Dental Clinics today.
