Wisdom Teeth Problems

Wisdom Teeth Treatment

The Problem

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, cavities, damage to neighbouring teeth, crowding and gum disease. A wisdom tooth that is “impacted” (not fully grown) is harder to clean.

This means food and bacteria get easily trapped between the gum and the partially erupted tooth it may lead to the development of a painful inflammatory gum condition known as “pericoronitis”.

The Cause

Wisdom teeth generally come in between the ages of 17 and 25.

The vast majority of people will have at least one wisdom tooth that’s impacted, or not able to fully grow in.


Our dentists will track the progress of your wisdom teeth using dental x-rays.

If they notice any potential problems or complications they will refer you to our in house oral and maxillo-facial specialist to get them removed.
