Wisdom Teeth Removal in Unionville

Some 3rd molars, also called wisdom teeth, can't be properly maintained due to their misaligned eruption pattern. The result of their improper positioning makes it difficult to clean and maintain the area around them. 
 

As dental plaque is allowed to buildup, overall risk for periodontal disease, recurring infections and tooth decay increase for the wisdom tooth and its neighbouring tooth by creating a trap for dental plaque to accumulate between them.
 
To avoid such problems, once the decision to remove the tooth is made, and the site is thoroughly numbed, the dentist will need to expose and remove the tissues that over lay the impacted tooth.
 
By sectioning the tooth into smaller parts, it improves the surgeons ability to remove the entire tooth through a smaller opening, minimizing the amount of bone that needs to be removed to take out the tooth and thereby helping to reduce recovery time.
