Wisdom Teeth Extraction In Etobicoke area
The thought of having a tooth or several teeth removed probably doesn't fill you with joyful anticipation. You're not alone; however, sometimes, this process is necessary to ensure your overall oral health and comfort. Thankfully, Drs. Shefali Tuli and Mislav Pavelic are experienced dentists in the Etobicoke area who can make wisdom tooth extraction as stress-free as possible.

When Wisdom Teeth Extraction Becomes Necessary

There was a time when all dentists recommended removing wisdom teeth after a certain age. However, today, many feel that it may not always be necessary to remove these teeth unless they detect that they are causing problems or will likely create oral issues down the road. Here are a few reasons for having our wisdom teeth removed.
  • Your tooth or teeth are impacted (meaning they are trapped in your gums or jawbone).
  • If the tooth or teeth are growing at the wrong angle. That causes them to press against other teeth and can also damage your jawbone, nerves, and sinuses.
  • Your dentist tells you that your mouth isn't big enough to accommodate the extra set of molars.
  • Your wisdom teeth are infected or causing cysts.
  • If you are diagnosed with cavities, it may be that you are not able to properly reach your wisdom teeth with a toothbrush or dental floss.
