Wisdom Teeth Removal at Westwood & Starwood Dental in Guelph
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
When Do Wisdom Teeth Become a Problem?
What to Expect
We examine your teeth and jaw thoroughly before scheduling an extraction. X-rays will be taken and thoroughly reviewed to see how your wisdom teeth are coming in and what your root structure looks like. This information will tell us whether your wisdom teeth need to be removed, whether they can be taken off without surgery, or if surgery is required. We prefer complete transparency with the patient.
Our staff will provide you with more information about what to anticipate and how to prepare during your initial exam. Local freezing, sedation, or anesthesia will be used depending on your choices and your doctor's expert judgement. To remove teeth as softly as possible, we use minimally invasive procedures. We wish for you to have a comfortable procedure and a fast recovery.
We may request that you bring a friend or family member to the practice who can drive you home and look after you while you recover. Our dentists will give you aftercare instructions and helpful advice for a quick and convenient recovery. Give us a call and we will be there for any support you may need as you recover.
