Is wisdom tooth extraction required?

It’s about
being proactive

You might not need to have your wisdom teeth removed. But if you do, taking care of them early could help you avoid major financial and health headaches later in life. 

With wisdom teeth extraction, you can reduce the risk of issues like gum infections, tooth crowding, root damage, and jaw bone cysts or tooth loss.
The benefits of wisdom tooth extraction

Superior Long-Term Health
Feel secure knowing that your teeth, gum tissue, and jaw bones aren’t susceptible to sudden issues.

Our process

01. Preparation

Through digital scans and a visual examination, we’ll assess your smile and carefully plan your procedure. We can also prescribe pain medications for after your surgery by request.

02. Removal

After applying local anesthesia - and sedation, if you’d like - we’ll carefully remove your wisdom teeth. Don’t worry - you’ll hardly feel any discomfort during the 30-60 minute procedure.

03. Recovery

Your body will need ample rest for the first day or two as you recover. After that, it may be another 3 or 4 days before the swelling subsides and you’re able to eat solid foods again.

An investment in lifelong health

A simple wisdom tooth extraction can be as low as $145 per tooth, while more complex cases with an impacted wisdom tooth or wisdom tooth below the gumline can cost up to $375 per tooth.

You have payment options

With financing or insurance coverage, your care can be more affordable.

Be Prepared For Your Procedure

Do I need a specialist referral to get my wisdom teeth removed?
No, you don’t need a referral. We can assess your mouth and let you know whether your wisdom teeth need to be removed.
Is wisdom teeth removal covered by insurance?
It depends on your individual coverage. If you’re not sure, we can work with your coverage provider to find out what you’re eligible for and help you receive maximum coverage.
Is wisdom teeth removal painful?
While the surgery isn’t painful, you’ll probably feel some discomfort as your mouth heals. For most people, an OTC medication is enough to handle any post-surgery pain.
Do wisdom teeth have to be removed during adolescence?
No, you don’t have to, but it’s recommended because it can help you avoid a more difficult emergency tooth extraction later on in life.

Your jaw bones and teeth are still developing at that age, so removing your wisdom teeth is easier and better for your long-term oral health, especially if you have impacted wisdom teeth.
How long until I’m fully recovered?
Your tooth sockets won’t fully heal for several months, but you’ll only feel extra sensitivity for about 2 weeks, and you’ll be able to eat solid foods again after 4 to 5 days.
Will the treatment cause me to miss school/work?
At most, you’ll only have to miss a day or two. While you can technically go back to school or work the next day, you’ll probably feel quite uncomfortable and won’t be able to focus well.
Are there any side effects from wisdom tooth removal?
No, there are usually no long-term side effects from getting your wisdom teeth removed. In the short term you may feel numbness, pain, or swelling, and you won't be able to eat or drink certain things, but those effects will go away shortly.

It’s addition by subtraction
