Wisdom teeth removal is a surgical procedure that we use to remove one or more wisdom teeth of a patient. Every adult has four wisdom teeth in the back corners of their mouths - two on the top and two on the bottom. Wisdom teeth are essentially useless, and removing them will not affect your ability to speak or to chew food. Still, an impacted wisdom tooth can be a source of excruciating agony!
If you need wisdom teeth removal in Langley, Gentle Dental is the place to go. We can get your wisdom teeth out, eliminating any pain and symptoms that you may be experiencing as a result of them, and preventing any future symptoms or issues from arising.

Understanding Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth, and they usually erupt between the ages of 17-25. In most cases, they won't cause any problems for the people who develop them. However, when wisdom teeth don't have enough room to erupt, a number of issues may arise, including the following:
- Partially developed wisdom teeth
- Grow angularly towards the nearest teeth
- Grow angularly towards the back of the mouth
- Grow at a right angle towards the other teeth, as if the wisdom tooth were lying down
- Grow straight up or down but stay trapped within the jawbone
Of course, wisdom teeth aren't just removed when they become impacted. Wisdom teeth are often removed for the sake of preventing other dental problems.
