Wisdom Teeth Dawson Creek, BC
Third Molar Extraction
“Wisdom” teeth are frequently extracted for a variety of reasons. The most common is that they start causing pain and infection. Being difficult to clean they often develop decay. With insufficient room in the mouth wisdom teeth do not grow in straight and become impacted. Often, after orthodontic treatment, wisdom teeth can cause crowding. If you are experiencing pain, swelling, or fever from your wisdom teeth, please contact our office for an emergency exam.
Most cases are treated in our office and can be done so with a ‘light’ conscious sedation (oral sedative).
If your case is complicated an requires extensive surgery, you will likely be referred to our visiting oral surgeons. Dr. M. Fain and Dr. T. Bellamy can provide conscious sedation (anesthesia) to extract wisdom teeth.
If you recently had teeth extracted please see our post operative instructions.
