Wisdom Teeth Removal in Prince George

Wisdom teeth are the four molars located at each of the four back corners of the mouth. For anyone between the ages of 17 and 25, these molars can come in and cause dental problems. It is common to experience discomfort and pain when the wisdom teeth do not have enough room to grow. The teeth might also be improperly aligned between the jawbones and the gums, resulting in aches. To prevent the molars from causing problems, dentists often recommend a wisdom tooth extraction.


Dr. Richard Wilczek offers reliable wisdom tooth removal in Prince George. With years of experience, our dentists are equipped to carry out an extraction. If your wisdom tooth is causing you trouble, you can book a consultation with our dentists today.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Hurt?

It is rare to find wisdom teeth that grow comfortably without causing pain. In most cases, there is a lack of space for the wisdom teeth to grow in proper alignment with the rest of the molars. Every time a tooth tries to force its way up, it might result in unusual alignments and partially grown wisdom teeth. In many cases, wisdom teeth might end up horizontally or vertically aligned, and unable to emerge from the gums.


In each of these cases, to get rid of the swelling and pain, wisdom teeth removal is required.

How Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Effective?

When you start experiencing pain due to the growth of a wisdom tooth in Prince George, an extraction is the best fix. Even for people who do not experience a lot of pain, there are significant benefits of getting wisdom teeth removed. Let us have a look at some of these benefits:


  • The problem of crowding is minimized when wisdom teeth are extracted. This improves overall oral health in the long term.
  • Getting a wisdom tooth removed reduces the chances of food particles getting trapped between the improperly aligned teeth and other healthy teeth.
  • The chances of periodontal diseases like gum infection become lower.
  • It becomes easier to prevent cavities and decay of surrounding teeth or a partially erupted wisdom tooth.
  • Orthodontic treatments become convenient.
  • A cyst is a fluid-filled sac that affects adjacent teeth and jawbones. The formation of a cyst can be prevented by removing wisdom teeth.

What to Expect During Wisdom Teeth Removal

Dr. Richard Wilczek provides professional and pain-free wisdom teeth removal in Prince George. A well-trained team of dentists and medical staff carry out the extraction surgery under appropriate sedation. The surgery takes between 30 and 60 minutes and is performed with the latest technologies at the dental facility. Once the surgery is over, you may experience mild pain and swelling for around three days. However, it is also common for many patients to not feel any discomfort after the procedure is over. To ensure proper healing, our dentists often list down a set of do’s and dont’s that you should follow.
