Our dentists in Newmarket offer tooth extractions, such as wisdom teeth removal.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the set of molars people get in their early or late twenties. Wisdom teeth are often removed if they are causing issues in your gums, jaws and/or teeth. Wisdom teeth can become infected if they do not erupt correctly or if the tooth is growing improperly.
Why may I need wisdom teeth extractions?
- If the wisdom tooth is crowding other teeth
- If the wisdom tooth has not completely grown in as of yet
- If the wisdom tooth has caused a gum infection/cavity/tooth decay
What is a root canal?
During a root canal, the infected pulp tissue from inside the affected tooth will be extracted to eliminate the infection. A root canal helps save the damaged or decayed tooth.
The area where the pulp was removed is then filled with dental material. Once a root canal is completed by the dentist, the tooth is often protected with a dental crown.
What are the symptoms of a root canal?
- Extreme toothache pain
- Sensitivity to hot or cold food/beverages
- Swelling/tenderness around the gum line
