Wisdom Teeth Removal in Markham

What is a wisdom tooth?

✓ Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars.

✓ Wisdom teeth develop between the ages of 16 to 20

✓ In most people, the jaw is too small to accommodate wisdom teeth. When inadequate space prevents wisdom teeth from erupting, they become impacted

“But they don’t bother me…” Based on our experience, your impacted wisdom teeth can be causing damage to your gums and the adjacent teeth without your knowledge, often resulting in irreversible damage by the time you feel any symptoms

When do I need them removed?

Recommended age to be removed between ages 16 to 20.

What are the signs & symptoms?

If not removed, generally symptoms include:

  • sharp pain
  • swelling of gums that come and go
  • food constantly stuck in-between your teeth
  • inability to open your mouth
  • dull ache that may radiate to your head or jaw.

These symptoms require immediate action before they become more severe.

What are the benefits of wisdom teeth extractions?

  • Decreased risk of inflammation and infections
  • Decreased risk of cysts and damage to the jaw and adjacent teeth
  • Decreased potential for teeth crowding. The pressure from erupting wisdom teeth may result in crowding of your other teeth and affect the alignment of your teeth.  

Bur Oak Dental Treatment Approach

We want you to be confident and comfortable with the provider performing the procedure, that is why we always recommend a consultation to answer all your questions and concerns.

An oral examination will be performed and the provider will discuss the risks and benefits of extraction.


  • Patients can choose to have their wisdom teeth extractions done under nitrous sedation (laughing gas), oral sedation, or with local anesthetic alone.
  • We highly recommend the procedure to be under laughing gas or oral sedation for optimal comfort.
  • Patients will recover in the clinic, and return home with their escort.

How long does the procedure typically take?

The procedure typically takes about 90 minutes. This includes the time to fill out paper work, treatment time and recovery time. 

How long is the recovery

Wisdom teeth removal is a common preventative procedure. Detection and early removal will allow for a smooth recovery. Generally 1 -2 weeks is acceptable for the average person.
