Emergency Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Edmonton

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the final set of molars that typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties. While some individuals have enough space in their jaw to accommodate wisdom teeth without issues, many people experience problems when these teeth become impacted, meaning they do not fully emerge through the gums.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know!
At what age should wisdom teeth be removed?
Wisdom teeth are typically removed during the late teenage years or early twenties, before they fully develop and cause complications. However, the timing of wisdom tooth removal may vary depending on individual factors such as the position and alignment of the teeth.
What are the signs that wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Signs that may indicate the need for wisdom tooth removal include persistent pain or discomfort in the back of the mouth, swelling or inflammation of the gums, difficulty chewing or biting down, and recurrent infections or abscesses around the wisdom teeth.
Is wisdom tooth removal painful?
While some discomfort and swelling are common after wisdom tooth removal, the procedure itself is performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort. Our experienced oral surgeons use advanced techniques to minimize pain and promote a smooth recovery process.
How long does it take to recover from wisdom tooth removal?
Recovery time varies depending on the complexity of the procedure and individual healing factors. In general, most patients can expect to resume normal activities within a few days to a week after wisdom tooth removal. Following post-operative instructions, such as avoiding hard or crunchy foods and practicing good oral hygiene, can help speed up the healing process.
Can I drive myself home after wisdom tooth removal?
If you undergo sedation for the procedure, it is recommended to arrange for someone to drive you home afterward, as the effects of sedation may impair your ability to drive safely. We also advise having a responsible adult accompany you to your appointment to provide support and assistance during the recovery period.
What can I eat after wisdom tooth removal?
Following wisdom tooth removal, it is best to stick to soft, easy-to-eat foods such as yogurt, applesauce, mashed potatoes, and soup for the first few days. Avoid hot, spicy, or hard foods that may irritate the extraction site or disrupt the healing process. Gradually reintroduce solid foods as tolerated, starting with softer options and chewing on the opposite side of your mouth.
