Tooth Extraction & Wisdom Tooth Removal

Safe, compassionate tooth extractions

Sedation if you need it

Avoid Pain and Possible Complications by Acting Quickly

Please seek treatment promptly to avoid complications, including the potential spread of infection to adjacent teeth and gums. If your situation is urgent, we offer prompt care for dental emergencies in Red Deer and we encourage you to call us at (403) 342-1118.

We also offer sedation dentistry for your comfort.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth that partially emerge or don’t have enough room to erupt can lead to gum diseases that cause oral infections, loss of vital tissue, and discomfort. Visit our dentists for a check-up to determine if you need your wisdom teeth removed. Extraction can:

  • prevent shifting and crowding of other teeth
  • eliminate infection and pain
  • decrease the risk of damage to adjacent teeth and gums

Wisdom teeth don’t always need to be removed. If they are erupting properly and you’re able to keep them clean and healthy, then there’s no need for extraction.

Replacements for Extracted Teeth

Our dentists in Red Deer can advise you about your options for tooth replacement and the pros and cons of each approach. We might recommend a dental implant, or a bridge, depending on your unique needs.

Post-Extraction Care

After surgery you shouldn’t smoke or use a straw or spit. These actions can pull the blood clot out of the hole left by the extraction.

Our dentists will give you detailed instructions on what to do and what to expect. It’s recommended to take drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce the pain which typically lasts a couple of days. You can put ice packs on your face to reduce swelling. You should eat soft and cold or lukewarm foods for a couple of days and then try eating other foods.

Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water to keep the area clean.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, contact us immediately:

  • swelling gets worse instead of getting better
  • fever and chills
  • difficulty in swallowing food
  • uncontrolled bleeding in the area
  • feel signs that you have developed a dry socket
