What are wisdom teeth? Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molar teeth that begin to grow during your late teens or early twenties. If they grow out to be perfectly aligned, some experience no issues with their wisdom teeth. However, sometimes wisdom teeth don't align with the adjacent teeth and can create various issues like infection, pain, bad breath, food impaction and damage to the neighbouring teeth. You can consult one of our dentists from Integral Dental Group in Winnipeg if they have any questions about your wisdom teeth.
At our different locations, during regular dental check-ups, our dentists will check on the condition of your wisdom teeth. If they look like they'll cause problems, we'll recommend wisdom tooth removal. We can provide you with a thorough diagnosis with the help of an X-ray and/or CT scan to find out if you require surgery for removal. Our next step is to discuss sedation and local anesthetic options to keep our patients at ease and ensure a comfortable appointment. After the procedure, specific instructions are given to minimize the risk of infection and boost your gums' recovery. For more information, contact us at any of our three business locations: Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental.
Not everyone's wisdom teeth grow, but if they do and cause you pain, our dentists will recommend going for a wisdom teeth removal which is carried out by inducing a local anesthetic and then the following process is carried out.

Impacted and outgrowing wisdom teeth can cause you significant pain. We may suggest you have a wisdom tooth extracted to reduce any possible side effects in the future. If left untreated, it may cause infection or cysts that may involve a more complicated surgical extraction.
