Wisdom Teeth Removal in Hamilton
The growth of wisdom teeth can vary from person to person. While some patients do not have all four, others may have more. And while some wisdom teeth are not problematic, meaning they do not disrupt the neighbouring tooth and gums, other cases are urgently so.
A wisdom tooth becomes a problem when it is impacted. This occurs when the tooth does not have room to grow, leading to crowding, pain, gum infection, decay of the neighbouring tooth and/or the wisdom tooth itself, or even cyst formation.
In any of these cases, we recommend wisdom tooth removal as soon as possible. We also recommend extraction even if the impacted teeth are currently not causing any problem to prevent future dental problems.

To determine the size, shape and level of impaction, we will use our Cone Beam and Panoramic X-ray Machine for increased accuracy. If we find that the level of severity is beyond our capacity, we will refer you to an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon to perform the extraction.
For milder and less difficult cases, NorthCare Dental Centre offers a wisdom tooth removal service, wherein our dentist will remove the impacted wisdom tooth via surgery. We also offer sedation if the procedure is particularly lengthy and complex. Set an appointment with us today to get examined.
