Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Winnipeg
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often come in sideways or don’t erupt at all. This can lead to issues with surrounding teeth and your jaw in general. This is why they are often removed ASAP prior to any damage being caused.
What Does a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Entail?
We begin the process with a set of X-rays, which allows us to determine any wisdom tooth issues. From this initial examination we can make a set of recommendations regarding full or partial wisdom tooth removal, and discuss the pros and cons of your different options.
If you do need wisdom teeth extractions, the procedure will be completed on-site at Allora Dental. Extracting all four teeth takes approximately one hour, using either local sedation or a general oral sedation (pill form) combined with freezing.
