Wisdom Teeth Removal

All I can say is, you're in good hands.  Dr. Chan removed my wisdom teeth and I've recommended him to all my friends.

Your Comfort is Important to Us

We offer several safe and effective options for making your wisdom teeth removal go smoothly.     

Local Anesthesia:
  • most popular option for extractions

  • local numbing is administered, so the procedure

     is pain-free​

Oral Sedation:
  • for slightly more nervous people

  • medicine will be administered through the mouth

  • you'll feel calm and relaxed during the extractions

Sleep Dentistry:

  • for our most nervous guests, we've partnered up with a dental sedation specialist to use their facilities

  • you'll be put to sleep by the specialist

  • our dental team will perform the procedure while you sleep

Reasons to Remove Wisdom Teeth

Don't get us wrong: we're big advocates to save healthy teeth when possible. Unfortunately, many of us weren't blessed with jaws big enough to accommodate for wisdom teeth: 

 

  • They come in slanted or completely horizontal and push your other teeth as they grow larger

  • They come out partially erupted: food gets trapped and it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and infection

With digital panoramic x-rays, we will be able to

 

  • show you where your wisdom teeth are located

  • make recommendations on whether to keep them or remove them based on what we see

Recovery 

Healing time depends on many factors, like:

  • how deeply impacted the tooth was

  • how clean the area is kept after extraction

  • etc.
