Emergency Wisdom Teeth Removal Services

Your wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent adult teeth to come in, usually sometime in your late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth can erupt misaligned, pressing against neighbouring teeth and roots, and causing serious pain, infection, and tooth movement.

The general removal of wisdom teeth is not considered a dental emergency, however if one of your teeth are impacted, you may experience extreme pain and discomfort. In this scenario, you may require emergency wisdom tooth removal by a dentist or oral surgeon.

Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removal in Winnipeg, MB

The cost to get your wisdom teeth removed depends on your insurance, type of anaesthetic, and the condition of your wisdom teeth and their surroundings. With insurance, wisdom teeth extraction in Winnipeg typically costs $100 – $200 per tooth in out-of-pocket expenses. Without insurance, you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 – $600 per tooth. A wisdom tooth removal procedure will fall under one of these broad categories which influences the cost:

Simple Wisdom Tooth Extraction

When your wisdom tooth is fully erupted and visible in your mouth, we can perform a simple wisdom tooth extraction. Our emergency dentist will numb the area with a local anaesthetic and then extract your tooth. This is usually an easy, quick, and relatively pain-free procedure.

Surgical Wisdom Tooth Extraction

You might have a more complicated situation where your wisdom tooth isn’t fully erupted, has complicated roots (longer or curved roots), or has a bad relationship with its neighbouring teeth. These situations require a more considerate, expert surgical extraction process which increases the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from an impacted wisdom tooth, you should get dental emergency services from our clinic as soon as possible. Partially erupted teeth can lead to pericoronitis and other severe dental infections which cause even more pain and inflammation over time. It’s important to get your mouth and jaw pain looked at immediately.
Wisdom teeth extraction can take 45 minutes for a single tooth. If several teeth are impacted, it can take more than an hour. We can provide a more accurate estimate after your oral examination at our clinic.
Thanks to modern dentistry procedures, you should feel no pain or discomfort during your emergency wisdom tooth extraction. After the removal, the impacted teeth and their surroundings may feel tender, but will heal very quickly with proper aftercare.
We’ll provide personalized aftercare instructions for you after your wisdom teeth are removed. Here are some general tips to help ensure a fast and pain-free recovery:

  • Don’t touch the extraction site with your finger or tongue
  • Avoid spitting, mouth rinsing, nose blowing, straw usage, and smoking within 24 hours after your tooth extraction
  • Avoid physical activities and exercise
  • Avoid hot foods and beverages
  • Don’t take aspirin (it can hinder blood clotting)
We recommend planning for at least three days of rest (or very light work) after an emergency extraction. It can take up to two weeks for a complete recovery, but you should experience very minimal discomfort during this time.
