Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Home / Services / Dental Surgeries & Other Treatments / Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Expert care for a painless procedure.

Wisdom tooth extraction is one of the most common dental surgeries; almost all patients will go through at least one during their life. If your dentist believes your wisdom teeth are at risk of causing infection, crowding, or decay in your mouth, removal is a safe and simple way of preventing these problems.

  • Simple, routine procedure
  • Prevent infection & decay
  • Stop teeth from crowding

If your dentist recommends a wisdom tooth extraction, it is likely a preventative measure to keep the rest of your teeth safe. Wisdom teeth often grow in at an angle, crowding your existing teeth, or may remain only partially erupted and cause infection.

The extraction may be done under local anaesthetic.  For more complicated extractions we may refer you to an Oral Surgeon, and there you do have the option of being asleep during the procedure.  Recovery is usually quite quick–as fast as two or three days for simple removals.


Do all wisdom teeth need to come out?

No – some people’s wisdom teeth will not cause complications, and therefore do not need to be removed.

What is the best age to have my wisdom teeth taken out?

There isn’t one ideal age, but generally in the late teens.  We can help you decide when the best time is for you during your exam.

Do you claim insurance directly or do I have to pay upfront?

We will claim insurance directly when we can.

Do you do treatment under general anesthetic?

We do not offer treatment under general anesthetic; however we do offer conscious oral sedation to help you feel more relaxed during your dental treatment.

  • I appreciate how understanding, accommodating, and patient each Staff member is when tending to my elderly mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's. She is now getting the dental care she needs after years of refusing to go to a dentist.

  • Dr. Kooner and her staff are always caring and helpful.  They're always able to put me at ease while getting dental work done. Thank you!

  • I had just moved and as always happens I had a dental emergency. I went online late in the evening requesting to be seen by a Dr. on Saturday.  I received a prompt email the very next morning followed by a phone call.  Gurvinder was awesome and answered all my questions.  1 day later a doctor was taking care of my dental emergency.  Late hours + weekend hours are perfect for me.  I will continue coming here!

  • I have been happy with the care I have received from Green Apple Dental and have recommended them to friends and family.
