Wisdom Teeth Extraction in North Edmonton​

Wisdom Teeth Extraction in North Edmonton

The extraction of wisdom teeth is a standard procedure, has minimal risk, and is only mildly painful.

Wisdom Teeth Coming In Symptoms

Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are the last permanent teeth to erupt, usually in adulthood. People typically have a set of wisdom teeth on each side of their mouth, one on top and one on the bottom.

When a wisdom tooth cannot ultimately emerge to the surface, is partly arising, or has stayed hidden in the gums, we refer to this as an impacted wisdom tooth. A tooth pushed out at the improper angle may force the adjacent teeth out of position and produce overcrowding, which will eventually impair your jawline. Impacted wisdom teeth may make your second molar more prone to infections and decay.

Symptoms that indicate an impacted wisdom tooth:

  • Irritated and bleeding gums.
  • Damaged tooth.
  • Jaw pain.
  • Bad breath.

Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure

Wisdom teeth may be removed by your dentist or an oral surgeon using a routine surgical technique. After an assessment, the dentist can provide you with further information regarding the sort of extraction you will need. All four teeth may be extracted at once or progressively throughout several appointments.

Examining your teeth

If your dentist advises wisdom tooth extraction, they will take an X-ray of your mouth to identify your root structure. This information will help detect if it requires surgical treatment or not.

Removing the wisdom tooth

You will be given an injection of a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding region before wisdom tooth removal. A minor gum incision will be made to reach the tooth if it hasn’t emerged. A small amount of bone protecting the tooth may also be removed. You might experience slight pressure before the tooth is removed, as your dentist or oral surgeon may rock the tooth to enlarge the socket before removing it. Numbing the region will make wisdom tooth removal painless. If you experience discomfort, inform your dentist or oral surgeon so they can give you extra anesthesia.

Cost Of A Wisdom Tooth Removal In North Edmonton

Wisdom tooth extraction costs range widely. The average price of dental extraction for a single tooth not covered by insurance ranges from $100-$200+. A single tooth extraction might cost anywhere from $200 to $600 or more if you don’t have dental insurance.

What Determines the Cost of Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Because your treatment plan is customized following an oral exam, it takes time to provide an estimate for wisdom teeth removal online or over the phone. Two major kinds of dental extractions may help you understand how much your wisdom teeth removal may cost and why:

Simple Tooth Extraction

A fully erupted (visible in the mouth) wisdom tooth may be removed without complications. A general dentist may do this with a local anesthetic, requiring less time and effort, hence less money to remove your wisdom tooth.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

If your wisdom tooth hasn’t completely erupted, is impacted, has convoluted roots, or has a poor connection with its neighbor, it may need surgical surgery to prevent further complications. In contrast, the price tag for a surgical extraction is higher because of the additional time, effort, and experience it requires.
